Conversion Rights

At any time and from time to time at

sum of the Accrued Value plus an amount equal to all accrued or declared and unpaid dividends on the Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock that have not previously been added to the Accrued Value by (ii) the Conversion Price in effect at the
time of such conversion.

The Issuer has the right to require each holder of Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock to convert such Redeemable Convertible
Preferred Stock into Common Stock (a Mandatory Conversion) at any time following the earlier of (i) the second anniversary of the closing of the Private Placement or (ii) the occurrence of both of the following: (a) (1)
the time that the Issuer first administers, after the issue date, a dose of a pharmaceutical product candidate (which such product candidate shall be one of the following candidates or a variation thereof:
DCR-PHXC, DCR-PCSK9 or the Issuers undisclosed rare disease program currently in pre-clinical development (each, a
Product Candidate)) to a human being pursuant to an investigational new drug application (an IND) filed by the Issuer with the United States Food and Drug Administration; or (2) after the Issuer has first administered,
after the issue date, a dose of a Product Candidate to a human being pursuant to a clinical trial authorization with the Medicine and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency in the European Union and an IND relating to such Product Candidate has

Accrued Value means, with respect to each share of Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock, the

have not previously been added to such Accrued Value.

Conversion Price means an initial price of $3.19 per share, subject to proportionate

Conversion Blocker

The conversion of shares of Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock into shares of Common Stock, whether by means of a Voluntary Conversion or a Mandatory

shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such conversion that is specified by the holder in a written notice to the Issuer, such percentage not to exceed 19.99%.

Following the date of a Mandatory Conversion, any shares of Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock that are not converted as a result of the Conversion
Blockers or applicable regulatory restrictions will continue to be entitled to all of the rights of the holders of Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock except that they will no longer be entitled to cumulative dividends, priority distribution of
assets upon consummation of a change of control or a liquidation event and certain special voting provisions.

As of the date hereof, the Reporting
Persons have not elected to be subject to a Voluntary Blocker.

Voting Rights

Holders of Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock are entitled to vote together with shares of Common Stock (based on one vote per each share of Common Stock
into which the shares of Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock are convertible on the applicable record date, subject to the Conversion Blockers) on any matter on which the holders of Common Stock are entitled to vote.

In addition, for so long as any shares of Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock remain outstanding, without the approval of holders of a majority of the

of the Accrued Value plus an amount equal to all accrued or declared and unpaid dividends on the Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock that have not previously been added to the Accrued Value, or (ii) the amount that such shares would have
been entitled to receive if they had converted into common stock immediately prior to such event.

liquidation, dissolution or winding up.

Board Representation

Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Issuer agreed to increase the size of its board of directors (the Board) to nine members and
to take all steps necessary to appoint Dr. Koppel to the resulting vacancy. Accordingly, on March 28, 2017, the Board voted to increase the size of the Board from eight to nine directors and appointed Dr. Koppel as a director of the
Issuer, effective immediately following and contingent upon, the closing of the Private Placement.

Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, to
the extent Dr. Koppel is not reelected to the Board at any time and, so long as the Reporting Persons own at least 25% of the Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock (or underlying Common Stock) owned by them at the closing of the Private
Placement, the Reporting Persons have the right to designate a board observer.

In their capacity as significant stockholders of the Issuer, the Reporting

their investment in the Issuer. Depending upon the factors discussed below and subject to applicable law, the Reporting Persons may from time to time acquire additional securities of the Issuer, convert their shares of Redeemable Convertible
Preferred Stock into shares of Common Stock or sell or otherwise dispose of some or all of their securities of the Issuer. Any transactions that the Reporting Persons may pursue may be made at any time and from time to time without prior notice and
