This Amendment No. 4 (“Amendment No. 4”) amends the Schedule 13D initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on June 10, 2016, as amended (the “Schedule 13D”), and is filed by and on behalf of (i) ASP BB Holdings LLC (“Holdings”), (ii) ASP BB Investco LP (“Investco”), (iii) American Securities Partners VII, L.P. (“ASP VII”), (iv) American Securities Partners VII(B), L.P. (“ASP VII(B)”), (v) American Securities Partners VII(C), L.P. (“ASP VII(C)” and, with ASP VII and ASP VII(B), the “Sponsors,” the owners of limited partnership interests in Investco), (v) American Securities Associates VII, LLC, the general partner of each Sponsor (“GP”), and (vi) American Securities LLC, which provides investment advisory services to each Sponsor (the “Advisor”) (collectively, the “Reporting Persons”), with respect to the common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”), of Blue Bird Corporation (“Blue Bird” or the “Issuer”).  Unless otherwise indicated, all capitalized terms used and not defined herein have the respective meanings assigned to them in the Schedule 13D.

Item 4.
Purpose of Transaction.

Item 4 of the Schedule 13D is hereby supplemented as follows:

On October 18, 2018, the Issuer filed Amendment No. 4 to its Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO with the SEC announcing the final results of the Issuer’s tender offer to purchase up to $50 million in aggregate value of its Common Stock at a price of $28.00 per share and of its 7.625% Series A Convertible Cumulative Preferred Stock at a price of $241.69 per share (the “Tender Offer”).  Holdings tendered all of its shares of Common Stock it owned in the Tender Offer.  Because the Tender Offer was oversubscribed, the number of shares of Common Stock accepted for purchase by the Issuer from each tendering stockholder was prorated, at a proration factor of 8.08209%.  The shares of Common Stock accepted for purchase by the Issuer included 969,850 shares of Common Stock tendered by Holdings, and Holdings received aggregate proceeds of $27,155,800 in consideration thereof.

Item 5.
Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

Item 5(a)-(c) of Schedule 13D are supplemented as follows:

(a) and (b)  The responses of the Reporting Persons to rows (7) through (13) of the cover pages of this Amendment No. 4, as of October 22, 2018, are incorporated herein by reference.  As of October 22, 2018, Holdings was the direct record owner of, and had the power to vote and to dispose or direct the disposition of, 11,030,150 shares of Common Stock, representing 43.24% of the issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock (based on 25,508,525 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of October 18, 2018, which information was provided by the Issuer after taking into account the shares of Common Stock accepted by the Issuer in the Tender Offer).  As a result of their relationship to Holdings, Investco, the Sponsors, GP and Advisor also may be deemed to be beneficial owners of such shares.  None of the Scheduled Persons own any shares of Common Stock as of October 22, 2018.

(c)  Except as described in Item 4 of this Amendment No. 4, no other transactions with respect to the shares of Common Stock were effected during the past sixty days by any of the Reporting Persons or by any of the Scheduled Persons.
