This Amendment No. 1 (this “Amendment”) amends and supplements the Schedule 13D filed on June 16, 2021 (the “Schedule 13D”) by Sujal Patel (the “Reporting Person”) relating to the Common Stock of Nautilus Biotechnology, Inc. (the “Issuer”). Information reported in the Schedule 13D remains in effect except to the extent that it is amended, restated or superseded by information contained in this Amendment. Capitalized terms used but not defined in this Amendment have the respective meanings set forth in the Schedule 13D. All references in the Schedule 13D and this Amendment shall be deemed to refer to the Schedule 13D as amended and supplemented by this Amendment.
Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.
Paragraphs (a), (b) and (c) of Item 5 are amended and restated in their entirety as follows:
(a) As of the date of this Schedule 13D, the Reporting Person beneficially owns an aggregate of 18,947,732 shares of Common Stock, or 15.0% of the Issuer’s outstanding shares of Common Stock. The beneficial ownership percentages used in this Schedule are calculated based on a total of 124,866,392 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of January 31, 2023 plus 1,838,733 shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of options held by the Reporting Person.
543,847 of the Reporting Person’s options to purchase shares of Common Stock are exercisable within 60 days of February 27, 2023. The unvested options to purchase shares of Common Stock vest over time subject to the Reporting Person’s continued service through each vesting date. If, during the period beginning three months before a change in control through the one-year anniversary of a change in control, the Reporting Person’s employment with the Issuer is terminated either (x) by the Issuer without cause, and excluding by reason of the Reporting Person’s death or disability or (y) by the Reporting Person for good reason, then 100% of any unvested shares shall immediately vest.
(b) The Reporting Person and the Reporting Person’s spouse share voting and dispositive power with respect to 1,814,035 shares of Common Stock owned by the Patel Trust. The Reporting Person has sole voting and dispositive power with respect to 15,294,964 shares of Common Stock and options to purchase 1,838,733 shares of Common Stock.
(c) On February 27, 2023, the Reporting Person was granted an option to purchase 650,000 shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock. Except for such option grant, the Reporting Person has not effected any transactions in the Common Stock during the past 60 days.
After reasonable inquiry and to the best of my knowledge and belief, I certify that the information set forth in this statement is true, complete and correct.
