       Schedule TO-I filed July 26, 2022

       Conditions to the Offer, page 15

   1.                                                   Quantify what would
constitute a "material change in United States or any other currency
                                                        exchange rates" that
would implicate the offer condition included on page 15. With
                                                        respect to currency
exchange rates other than U.S. exchange rates, this condition appears
                                                        to be extremely broad
and is not linked to a material adverse change on the Company or
                                                        its operations. Please
revise to explain how security holders may determine whether such
                                                        condition has been
"triggered," or revise to narrow it.
   2.                                                   Refer to the condition
in the second to last bullet point on page 15. Revise to clarify
                                                        whether this condition
could be implicated by developments in the ongoing hositilties in
                                                        Ukraine. It is not
clear from the language of the condition whether this conflict indirectly
                                                        involves the United

3.       We refer to the following language on page 16 of the offer materials:
"The foregoing
         conditions are for the sole benefit of the Company and may be asserted
by the Company
         in its sole discretion, regardless of the circumstances giving rise to
any such condition...."
         All offer conditions must be objective and outside the control of the
offeror, and described
         with reasonable specificity in the offer materials. Revise the quoted
language to remove
         the implication that deliberate actions (or inaction) by the Company
could allow it
         terminate the Offer.
4.       Refer to following language on page 16 of the offer materials: "The
failure by the
         Company at any time to exercise any of the foregoing rights will not
be deemed a waiver
         of any such or other right and each right will be deemed an ongoing
right which may be
         asserted at any time and from time to time...." If an event occurs
that "triggers" an offer
         condition, the Company must promptly inform security holders whether
it will assert the
         condition and terminate the Offer, or waive it and proceed. Revise the
quoted language to
         remove the implication that the Company may wait to do so.
5.       In several places in the offer materials, including on page 16, you
state that the "Company
         expressly reserves the right, in its sole discretion but subject to
applicable law, to
         (i) terminate the Offer prior to the Expiration Time and not accept
for payment any
         Convertible Notes tendered in the Offer...." Revise here and
throughout the offer
         materials to state that it may do so only upon the failure of one or
more of the Offer

6.       We note the statement that the Offer is open to all "holders of
record" of the 3.25%
         Convertible Senior Notes. Rule 13e-4(f)(8)(i) mandates that the Offer
be open to all target
         security holders, rather than just record holders. Please confirm in
your response letter
         that this language is not intended to mean that only record holders of
the Notes may
         participate in the Offer.
        We remind you that the filing persons are responsible for the accuracy
and adequacy of
their disclosures, notwithstanding any review, comments, action or absence of
action by the staff.
