Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On March 3, 2022, AST & Science LLC, a subsidiary of AST SpaceMobile, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an agreement (the “Multi-Launch Agreement”) with Space Exploration Technologies Corp. (“SpaceX”). This Multi-Launch Agreement provides a framework for future launches of the Company’s satellites through December 31, 2024, the term of the Multi-Launch Agreement, including the launches of the BlueWalker 3 test satellite (“BW3”) and the first BlueBird (“BB”) satellite.


Pursuant to the Multi-Launch Agreement, the Company and SpaceX also entered into a Launch Services Agreement (the “BB LSA”) covering the launch of first BB satellite, and in accordance with the BB LSA, the Company will pay an initial payment for the SpaceX launch services.


As part of the Multi-Launch Agreement, the Company and SpaceX agreed on a framework for additional launch service agreements relating to the launch of future BB satellites. The Company will pay an initial reservation fee to secure a SpaceX launch vehicle for a future BB satellite launch.


With respect to the Company’s BW3 launch scheduled for Summer 2022, the Company and SpaceX agreed to changes to certain technical launch parameters, and the Company agreed to pay an additional fee to SpaceX to adjust these parameters.


In connection with entry into the Multi-Launch Agreement, the Company will pay an aggregate amount of $22.75 million within seven days of the execution of the Multi-Launch Agreement for the BW3 technical adjustments, first BB initial payment and launch reservation fee for a future BB launch.


The exact timing of the satellite launches is contingent on a number of factors, including satisfactory and timely completion of construction and testing. The Multi-Launch Agreement permits the Company to delay launches of its satellites upon payment of certain rebooking fees.


The foregoing descriptions of the Multi-Launch Agreement and the BB LSA do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the Multi-Launch Agreement and BB LSA, copies of which are attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
