(a) This statement on Schedule 13D/A is filed by Alphaeon 1 LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Reporting Person”).

Item 4.

PURPOSE OF TRANSACTION.

 

 

The Reporting Person was formed as a wholly owned subsidiary of AEON for the purpose of holding the Contributed Shares. On January 8, 2020, pursuant to the Contribution Agreement, AEON consummated the Contribution and AEON contributed the Contributed Shares to the Reporting Person. On January 8, 2020, AEON distributed all of the outstanding membership interests of the Reporting Person to the stockholders of AEON. In connection with the Distribution, the Reporting Person entered into Warrant Agreements (the “Warrant Agreements”) with certain holders (the “Noteholders”) of AEON’s convertible notes (the “Convertible Notes”), pursuant to which, the Reporting Person will issue contingent warrants (the “Contingent Warrants”) to the Noteholders exercisable for Contributed Shares under certain circumstances. The Contingent Warrants are exercisable at the option of the holders thereof (the “Warrantholders”) only at the time of a qualified public offering of AEON or at the time of any “Event of Default” under the Convertible Notes and are exercisable for the number of Contributed Shares equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (x) the Payment Amount as set forth in the Convertible Notes tendered by the Warrantholder by (y) the market value of the Contributed Shares, pursuant to and limited by the terms of the Warrant Agreement.

 

The Reporting Person expects to review from time to time its holdings in the Issuer and may, depending on the market and other conditions, dispose of additional shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock. Additionally, the Reporting Person will liquidate its assets and distribute the balance of the Contributed Shares to its members (in accordance with the Reporting Person’s Limited Liability Company Agreement and AEON’s certificate of incorporation, as amended) upon the initial public offering or liquidation event of AEON.

 

Except as set forth herein, the Reporting Person currently has no present plans or proposals which would be related to or would result in any of the matters described in Items 4(a)-(j) of the Instructions to Schedule 13D.

 

 

Item 5.

(b) See rows (7) through (10) of the cover page to this Schedule 13D/A for the number of shares of Common Stock, as to which the Reporting Person has the sole or shared power to vote or direct the vote and sole or shared power to dispose or to direct the disposition.

 

(c) The Reporting Person has affected the following transaction in the Common Stock of the Issuer during the last sixty days:

 

On September 2, 2021, the Reporting Person sold 2,597,475 shares of the Common Stock of the Issuer in a block sale transaction at a price of $9.50 per share.

However, the members of the Reporting Person have the right to participate in the receipt of dividends from, and in the proceeds from the sale of, the shares of Common Stock in accordance with their respective membership interests and rights in the Reporting Person.
