Item 3 is hereby amended and restated to read as follows:
 
The aggregate purchase price of the  3,198,099 Shares owned directly by BH is approximately $151,010,809.  Such Shares were acquired with the working capital of BH (which may include margin loans made by brokerage firms in the ordinary course of business).
 
The aggregate purchase price of the 140,100 Shares owned directly by the Lion Fund is approximately $6,062,885.  Such Shares were acquired with the working capital of the Lion Fund (which may include margin loans made by brokerage firms in the ordinary course of business).
 
None of the persons listed on Schedule A of the initial Schedule 13D currently beneficially own any Shares.
 
 
Item 5.
Interest in Securities of the Issuer.
 
Items 5(a)-(c) are hereby amended and restated to read as follows:
 
The aggregate percentage of Shares reported owned by the Reporting Persons is based upon 22,949,548 Shares outstanding, which is the total number of Shares outstanding as of November 16, 2011, as reported in the Issuer’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended October 28, 2011, filed with the SEC on November 22, 2011.
 
As of the close of business on January 27, 2012, BH owned directly 3,198,099 Shares, constituting approximately 13.9% of the Shares outstanding.  By virtue of the relationships with BH discussed in further detail in Item 2, Sardar Biglari may be deemed to beneficially own the Shares owned by BH.
 
As of the close of business on January 27, 2012, the Lion Fund owned directly 140,100   Shares, constituting approximately 0.6% of the Shares outstanding.  By virtue of the relationships with the Lion Fund discussed in further detail in Item 2, each of BCC, BH and Sardar Biglari may be deemed to beneficially own the Shares owned by the Lion Fund.
 
An aggregate of 3,338,199 Shares, constituting approximately 14.5%   of the Shares outstanding, are reported by the Reporting Persons in this statement.
 
Neither Sardar Biglari nor any person set forth on Schedule A to the initial Schedule 13D directly owns any Shares as of the date hereof.
 
Schedule A annexed hereto lists all transactions in securities of the Issuer by (i) the Reporting Persons and (ii) each of the executive officers and directors of BH since the filing of Amendment No. 8 to the Schedule 13D.  All of such transactions were effected in the open market, unless otherwise noted.
 
By virtue of his relationships with the other Reporting Persons discussed in further detail in Item 2, Sardar Biglari may be deemed to have the sole power to vote and dispose of the Shares owned directly by BH and the Lion Fund.
 
Each of the Reporting Persons, as a member of a “group” with the other Reporting Persons for purposes of Rule 13d-5(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), may be deemed to beneficially own the Shares owned by the other Reporting Persons.  The filing of this Schedule 13D shall not be deemed an admission that any of the Reporting Persons is, for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act, the beneficial owner of any Shares he or it does not directly own.  Each of the Reporting Persons specifically disclaims beneficial ownership of the Shares reported herein that he or it does not directly own.
