Every vote counts, and we ask that you cast your vote today regardless of your share amount. The Charter Extension Proposal requires approval by the affirmative vote of the holders of at least 65% of all outstanding shares of common stock.

Stockholders that owned the shares on January 28, 2021 (the “Record Date”) should have already received proxy materials. New Providence strongly recommends that stockholders complete and return their proxy card, voting FOR all proposals, as soon as possible to ensure that all shares are represented at the Annual Meeting. The fastest and easiest way to vote is over the Internet or by phone with your control number provided by your broker.

Stockholders who owned shares as of the Record Date that did not receive, or misplaced, proxy materials should contact their broker and request their voting control number. If stockholders have questions related to voting their shares, they may contact their broker or New Providence’s proxy solicitor Morrow Sodali LLC at or call toll free for questions or to vote at (877) 787-9239.

Forward-Looking Statements

This communication includes “forward-looking statements” that are not historical facts and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expected and projected. All statements, other than statements of historical fact contained in this communication including, without limitation, statements regarding NPA’s financial position, business strategy and the plans and objectives of management for future operations; anticipated financial impacts of the AST Business Combination; the satisfaction of the closing conditions to the AST Business Combination; and the timing of the completion of the AST Business Combination, are forward-looking statements. Words such as “expect,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “estimate,” “seek” and variations and similar words and expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements relate to future events or future performance, but reflect management’s current beliefs, based on information currently available.

These forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties that could cause the actual results to differ materially from the expected results. Most of these factors are outside NPA’s and AST’s control and are difficult to predict. Factors that may cause such differences include, but are not limited to: (i) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of the Equity Purchase Agreement or could otherwise cause the AST Business Combination to fail to close; (ii) the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against NPA and AST following the execution of the Equity Purchase Agreement and the AST Business Combination; (iii) any inability to complete the AST Business Combination, including due to failure to obtain approval of the stockholders of NPA or other conditions to closing in the Equity Purchase Agreement; (iv) the receipt of an unsolicited offer from another party for an alternative business transaction that could interfere with the AST Business Combination; (v) the inability to maintain the listing of the shares of common stock of the post-acquisition company on The Nasdaq Stock Market following the AST Business Combination; (vi) the risk that the AST Business Combination disrupts current plans and operations as a result of the announcement and consummation of the AST Business Combination; (vii) the ability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the AST Business Combination, which may be affected by, among other things, competition, the ability of the combined company to grow and manage growth profitably and retain its key employees; (viii) costs related to the AST Business Combination; (ix) changes in applicable laws or regulations; (x) the possibility that AST or the combined company may be adversely affected by other economic, business, and/or competitive factors; and (xi) other risks and uncertainties indicated in the proxy statement, including those under the section entitled “Risk Factors”, and in NPA’s other filings with the SEC.

NPA cautions that the foregoing list of factors is not exclusive. NPA cautions readers not to place undue reliance upon any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. For information identifying important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements, please refer to the Risk Factors section of NPA’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC.
