The Sigma 18-300C price drop.... why?

I noticed not long ago that the Sigma 18-300 Contemporary lens price dropped about $180 to $399 new! A demo can be gotten from Adorama for $299! Wasn't this lens introduced for almost $600? I'm looking for objective thoughts on why such a price reduction. Lousy lens? I used one on a Costa Rica trip early this year and had satisfactory results. Did the Tamron 16-300, followed by the 18-400 take away too many sales? All the above?
