 This statement on Schedule 13D/A (the "Schedule 13D/A") relates to the Ordinary Shares, par value £0.01 per share (the "Ordinary Shares") and the American Depositary Shares, each representing five Ordinary Shares (the “ADSs” and together with the Ordinary Shares, the “Shares”), of Summit Therapeutics PLC, a foreign private issuer incorporated in England and Wales whose principal executive office is located at 136A Eastern Avenue, Milton Park, Abingdon, Oxfordshire OX14 4SB, United Kingdom (the "Issuer").

   
ITEM 2. IDENTITY AND BACKGROUND.

 

(a-c, f) This Schedule 13D/A is being filed on behalf of: (i) Lansdowne Partners (UK) LLP, an English limited liability partnership ("Lansdowne") and (ii) Lansdowne Developed Markets Master Fund Limited, a Cayman Islands exempted company (the "Fund" and together with Lansdowne, the “Reporting Persons”). The Fund is a privately offered investment fund that holds the Shares reported in this Schedule 13D/A. Lansdowne is the investment adviser to the Fund and as a result is the beneficial owner of the Shares reported in this Schedule 13D/A.

The principal business address of Lansdowne is 15 Davies Street, London W1K 3AG, England and the principal business address of the Fund is c/o BNP Paribas Fund Administration Services, 2 Grand Canal Plaza, Grand Canal Street, Dublin 2, Ireland.

 

(d)       None of the Reporting Persons, individually or collectively, has, during the last five years, been convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors).

(e)       None of the Reporting Persons has, during the last five years, been a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction and as a result of such proceeding was or is subject to a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, Federal or state securities laws or finding any violation with respect to such laws.

   
ITEM 3. SOURCE AND AMOUNT OF FUNDS OR OTHER CONSIDERATION.

 

The funds for the purchase of the Shares beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons came from the working capital of the Fund. The total cost for the Ordinary Shares beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons is £15,778,040 and the total cost for the ADSs beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons is $17,206,992. No borrowed funds were used to purchase the Shares, other than any borrowed funds used for working capital purposes (including certain leverage arrangements) in the ordinary course of business.

   
ITEM 4. PURPOSE OF TRANSACTION.

 

The Reporting Persons hold the securities described in Item 5 of this statement for investment purposes only.

The Reporting Persons have no plan or proposal which relates to, or would result in, any of the actions enumerated in Item 4 of the instructions to Schedule 13D/A.

 

 

ITEM 5. INTEREST IN SECURITIES OF THE ISSUER.

 

(a - e) Regarding aggregate beneficial ownership, see Row 11 of the cover page of each Reporting Person. Regarding percentage beneficial ownership, see Row 13 of the cover page of each Reporting Person. Regarding sole power to vote shares, see Row 7 of the cover page of each Reporting Person. Regarding shared power to vote shares, see Row 8 of the cover page of each Reporting Person. Regarding sole power to dispose of shares, see Row 9 of the cover page of each Reporting Person. Regarding shared power to dispose of shares, see Row 10 of the cover page of each Reporting Person.

There have been no transactions by the Reporting Persons in the Shares during the past sixty days. This Schedule 13D/A is being filed to reflect a change in the Reporting Person’s ownership of the Shares due to a change in the number of the Issuer’s Shares outstanding.
