   1.                                                   In your response to
comment 8 from our December 5, 2019 comment letter you attribute
                                                        some of the difference
between your August and September 2020 valuations and the mid-
                                                        point of the
preliminary price range to the objective and subjective factors described on
                                                        page 101 as well as
your consideration of recent favorable trends in your business and
                                                        operating results.
Given the significance of the increase in such a short period of time,
                                                        please separately
describe and quantify the impact each significant objective and
                                                        subjective factor
contributed to this difference and describe the favorable trends and
                                                        operating results
considered that support this increase.
