CUSIP No. 0087A 105   Page 3 of 5

Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds.

Item 3 of the Prior Filings is amended by adding the following paragraph:

On January 6, 2021, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with certain affiliates of the Reporting Person, pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue and sell to affiliates of the Reporting Person, in a registered direct offering (the “Offering”), an aggregate of 9,000,000 shares of Common Stock, at a purchase price per share of $1.10. The shares of Common Stock are being offered by the Company pursuant to a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-226650) that was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and a prospectus supplement thereunder. The Offering closed on January 8, 2021. The source of the funds for SMTP’s acquisition of shares in the Offering was capital committed by the partners of SMTP.

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

Paragraph (a) of Item 5 of the Prior Filings is hereby deleted and replaced as follows:

 

  (a)

Amount beneficially owned as of the date hereof:

Amount beneficially owned: The Reporting Person beneficially owns an aggregate of 20,340,792 shares of Common Stock. The shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Reporting Person include (a) 1,025,076 shares of Common Stock that are held by Muneer A. Satter Revocable Trust for which the Reporting Person serves as trustee and, in such capacity, has sole voting and dispositive power over all such shares; (b) 1,231,044 shares of Common Stock that are held by various other trusts and other entities for which the Reporting Person serves as trustee, investment advisor or manager and, in such capacity, has sole voting and dispositive power over all such shares; (c) 14,353,329 shares of Common Stock that are held by SMTP for which the Reporting Person has sole voting and dispositive power over all such shares, and (d) subject to the ownership limitation described below, Warrants to purchase 3,731,343 shares of Common Stock held by SMTP for which the Reporting Person has sole voting and dispositive power over all such Warrants and the underlying shares of Common Stock.

Percent of class:

While the Reporting Person beneficially owns 20,340,792 shares of Common Stock, such amount only represents 19.9% of the total number of shares of Common Stock outstanding because the Warrants may not be exercised with respect to any portion of the Warrants, to the extent that such exercise would result in SMTP and its affiliates beneficially owning more than 19.9% of the outstanding Common Stock or outstanding voting power of the Company.

All percentages calculated in this Schedule 13D are based on 83,610,151 shares of Common Stock outstanding after the Offering as disclosed in the Prospectus Supplement filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 7, 2021.

Item 6. Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships with Respect to Securities of the Issuer.

Item 6 of the Prior Filings is amended by adding the following paragraph:

Securities Purchase Agreement (2021)

The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties, covenants and agreements by the Company, customary conditions to closing, indemnification obligations, other obligations of the parties and termination provisions. The description of the Purchase Agreement included in this Schedule 13D does not purport to be a complete description and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such agreement, which is filed as part of this Schedule 13D and incorporated by reference herein.

Item 7. Material to be Filed as Exhibits.

Item 7 of the Prior Filings is amended by adding the following exhibit:

Exhibit D: Form of Securities Purchase Agreement (incorporated by reference to Exhibit 10.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on January 7, 2021)
