(the “Issuer”) that may be issued upon redemption by the Reporting Person of 78,163,078 common units (the “AST Common Units”) of AST & Science LLC (“AST”). In addition, the Reporting Person beneficially owns 78,163,078 shares of Class C Common Stock of the Issuer (the “Class C Common Stock”). Each share of Class C Common Stock carries one vote per share and each share of Class C Common Stock carries ten votes per share and no economic rights. From and after April 6, 2022, the Reporting Person may redeem or exchange one AST Common Unit for one share of Class A Common Stock or, under certain circumstances, a cash payment based on the value of Class A Common Stock. At the time of any redemption or exchange, the Reporting Person would forfeit an equivalent number of shares of Class C Common Stock to the Issuer.
   
  As discussed in Item 2 of this Schedule 13D, the other Stockholder Parties (as defined herein) are not included as reporting persons in this Schedule 13D, and the Reporting Persons expressly disclaim beneficial ownership of the shares of Class A Common Stock beneficially held by the other Stockholders Parties.
   
(2)The percentage reported in this Schedule 13D are based upon approximately 149,373,568 shares of Class A Common Stock outstanding comprised of (i) 71,210,490 shares of Class A Common Stock outstanding as of December 2, 2022, and (ii) approximately 78,163,078 shares of Class A Common Stock issuable upon the redemption of the AST Common Units owned by the Reporting Person. This percentage does not represent the Reporting Person’s current voting interest in the Issuer, as the Reporting Person has a 86.51% voting interest in the Issuer by virtue of his ownership of all of the shares of Class C Common Stock of the Issuer.

 

AMENDMENT NO. 1 TO SCHEDULE 13D

 

This Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13D amends and supplements the Schedule 13D filed by Mr. Abel Avellan with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on February 5, 2022 (the “Schedule 13D”).

Item 5 is amended and restated to read as follows:

As a result of the Outstanding Class A Shares Increase, the percentage of outstanding shares of Common Stock that the Reporting Person may be deemed to beneficially own was reduced by more than one percent (1%) of the Issuer’s shares of Class A Common Stock outstanding since the filing of the Schedule 13D.
