CUSIP No. 05335B100

The following constitutes Amendment No. 2 to the Schedule 13D filed by the undersigned (“Amendment No. 2”). This Amendment No. 2 amends the Schedule 13D as specifically set forth herein.

Item 2.Identity and Background.

Item 2 is hereby amended to add the following:

On April 21, 2022, the parties to that certain Joint Filing Agreement, dated December 14, 2018, agreed to terminate such agreement effective immediately. Accordingly, the Reporting Persons are no longer members of a Section 13(d) group. Mr. Negari and the 18999 Trust shall continue filing statements on Schedule 13D with respect to their beneficial ownership of securities of the Issuer to the extent required by applicable law. Mr. Negari and the 18999 Trust are parties to the Joint Filing Agreement, as further described in Item 6.

Item 3.Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

Item 3 is hereby amended and restated to read as follows:

The securities of the Issuer directly owned by the 18999 Trust and the Insight Trust were purchased with working capital (which may, at any given time, include margin loans made by brokerage firms in the ordinary course of business). The aggregate purchase price of the 908,112 Shares directly owned by the 18999 Trust is approximately $3,404,101, including brokerage commissions. The aggregate purchase price of the 200,200 Shares directly owned by the Insight Trust is approximately $574,237, including brokerage commissions.

The Shares directly owned by Mr. Negari were purchased with personal funds (which may, at any given time, include margin loans made by brokerage firms in the ordinary course of business). The aggregate purchase price of the 133 Shares directly owned by Mr. Negari is approximately $485, including brokerage commissions.

Item 5.Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

Items 5(a) and (c) are hereby amended and restated to read as follows:

(a)        The aggregate percentage of Shares reported owned by each person named herein is based upon 14,051,149 Shares outstanding as of April 20, 2022, which is the total number of Shares outstanding as reported in the Issuer’s definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 21, 2022.

As of the date hereof, the 18999 Trust directly beneficially owned 908,112 Shares, constituting approximately 6.5% of the outstanding Shares.

As of the date hereof, Mr. Negari directly owned 133 Shares, constituting less than 1% of the outstanding Shares. Mr. Negari, as trustee of the 18999 Trust, may be deemed to beneficially own the 908,112 Shares beneficially owned by the 18999 Trust, which, together with the 133 Shares he directly owns, constitutes approximately 6.5% of the Shares outstanding.

As of the date hereof, the Insight Trust directly owned 200,200 Shares, constituting approximately 1.4% of the outstanding Shares. Mr. Ambrose, as trustee of the Insight Trust, may be deemed to beneficially own the 200,200 Shares beneficially owned by the Insight Trust, constituting approximately 1.4% of the outstanding Shares.
