Shareholders who have validly tendered and not withdrawn their shares do not need to re-tender their shares or take any other action in connection with the amendment and extension of the tender offer, and they will receive the increased purchase price for their shares if the tender offer is completed and those shares are not withdrawn prior to the new expiration time.
