ROSEN, A GLOBALLY RESPECTED LAW FIRM, Encourages AST SpaceMobile, Inc. Investors to Secure Counsel Before Important June 17 Deadline in Securities Class Action – ASTS

NEW YORK, June 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

WHY: Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, reminds purchasers of securities of AST SpaceMobile, Inc. (NASDAQ: ASTS) between November 14, 2023 and April 1, 2024, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”), of the important June 17, 2024 lead plaintiff deadline.

SO WHAT: If you purchased AST SpaceMobile securities during the Class Period you may be entitled to compensation without payment of any out of pocket fees or costs through a contingency fee arrangement.

WHAT TO DO NEXT: To join the AST SpaceMobile class action, go to https://rosenlegal.com/submit-form/?case_id=24272 or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email case@rosenlegal.com for information on the class action. A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than June 17, 2024. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.

WHY ROSEN LAW: We encourage investors to select qualified counsel with a track record of success in leadership roles. Often, firms issuing notices do not have comparable experience, resources or any meaningful peer recognition. Many of these firms do not actually litigate securities class actions, but are merely middlemen that refer clients or partner with law firms that actually litigate the cases. Be wise in selecting counsel. The Rosen Law Firm represents investors throughout the globe, concentrating its practice in securities class actions and shareholder derivative litigation. Rosen Law Firm has achieved the largest ever securities class action settlement against a Chinese Company. Rosen Law Firm was Ranked No. 1 by ISS Securities Class Action Services for number of securities class action settlements in 2017. The firm has been ranked in the top 4 each year since 2013 and has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for investors. In 2019 alone the firm secured over $438 million for investors. In 2020, founding partner Laurence Rosen was named by law360 as a Titan of Plaintiffs’ Bar. Many of the firm’s attorneys have been recognized by Lawdragon and Super Lawyers.

DETAILS OF THE CASE: According to the lawsuit, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) production of AST SpaceMobile’s five Block 1 BlueBird satellites had been negatively impacted by two suppliers of key subsystems; (2) as a result, AST SpaceMobile had not substantially completed the production of the Block 1 BlueBird satellites; (3) as a result, AST SpaceMobile’s five Block 1 BlueBird satellites were not on track to launch in the first quarter of 2024; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, defendants’ positive statements about AST SpaceMobile’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

To join the AST SpaceMobile class action, go to https://rosenlegal.com/submit-form/?case_id=24272 or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email case@rosenlegal.com for information on the class action.

No Class Has Been Certified. Until a class is certified, you are not represented by counsel unless you retain one. You may select counsel of your choice. You may also remain an absent class member and do nothing at this point. An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.

Charter Flights to Aqaba Resume with Arrival of Slovak Tourists


Aqaba: A plane from Slovakia arrived at the King Hussein International Airport in Aqaba, carrying 110 tourists, marking the beginning of a weekly flight route supported by the Jordan Tourism Board and organized by Hydro Waters, with Al-Jisr Tourism and Travel as the Jordanian agent.

Hamza Al-Haj Hassan, Deputy Chairman of the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority and Commissioner for Investment and Tourism stated that the resumption of charter flights to Aqaba is part of strategic plans and programs aimed at gradually promoting and attracting tourist groups in collaboration with the Jordan Tourism Board. He highlighted that tourist flights to Aqaba are ongoing through all land and airports.

In a press statement on Thursday, Al-Haj Hassan noted that visitor numbers during holidays and special occasions have exceeded expectations, thanks to the Authority’s implementation of artistic and entertainment events targeting local and international visitors and Aqaba residents.

He emphasized the significance of the
artistic, entertainment, and cultural events, along with the weekly heritage bazaars held at the Great Arab Revolt Square, organized by the Authority in partnership with various stakeholders. These events cater to diverse tastes, offering activities such as swimming, water sports, and visits to historical and heritage museums. The Bird Observatory in Aqaba is a key destination for groups of migratory birds. Land trips to the Wadi Rum region are also popular among tourists, who visit to watch sunsets, stargaze, and enjoy the unique pink sands.

Ahmed Karshian, representing the Director General of the Jordan Tourism Board, pointed out that these regular flights will pave the way for more international airlines to operate in Aqaba, stressing that the Authority has intensified efforts to promote tourism through charter flights, signaling a revival of tourism activity and recovery from the regional challenges faced in recent years.
