(1) The source of funds was working capital of the Redmile Affiliates (as defined in footnote (2) below).

 

(2) The aggregate amount of shares of common stock, $0.01 par value per share, of the Issuer (the “Common Stock”) that may be deemed beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons is comprised of the following: (i) 561,300 shares of Common Stock held by Redmile Capital Fund, L.P., (ii) 1,407,200 shares of Common Stock held by Redmile Capital Offshore Fund, Ltd., (iii) 99,200 shares of Common Stock held by Redmile Capital Offshore Fund (ERISA), Ltd., (iv) 230,800 shares of Common Stock held by Redmile Capital Offshore Fund II, Ltd., (v) 216,500 shares of Common Stock and 84,850 shares of the Issuer’s non-voting Common Stock (the “Non-Voting Common Stock”) held by Redmile Strategic Master Fund, LP, (vi) 1,513,225 shares of Non-Voting Common Stock held by Redmile Biopharma Investments II, L.P., (vii) 91,100 shares of Common Stock held by P Redmile Ltd., (viii) 293,455 shares of Non-Voting Common Stock held by RAF, L.P., (ix) 175,087 shares of Common Stock held by Map 20 Segregated Portfolio, a segregated portfolio of LMA SPC, and (x) 362,813 shares of Common Stock held by a separately managed account. Redmile Group, LLC is the investment manager/adviser to each of the private investment vehicles and separately managed accounts listed in items (i) through (x) (collectively, the “Redmile Affiliates”) and, in such capacity, exercises sole voting and investment power over all of the shares held by the Redmile Affiliates and may be deemed to be the beneficial owner of these shares. Jeremy C. Green serves as the managing member of Redmile Group, LLC and also may be deemed to be the beneficial owner of these shares. Redmile Group, LLC and Mr. Green each disclaim beneficial ownership of these shares, except to the extent of its or his pecuniary interest in such shares, if any. The Non-Voting Common Stock is initially convertible into shares of Common Stock on a one-for-one basis. Pursuant to the Issuer’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Certificate of Incorporation”), the Issuer may not effect any conversion of the Non-Voting Common Stock, and a holder of the Non-Voting Common Stock does not have the right to convert any portion of the Non-Voting Common Stock held by such holder, to the extent that, after giving effect to the attempted conversion set forth in a notice of conversion, such holder, together with such holder’s affiliates and any other person whose beneficial ownership of Common Stock would be aggregated with such holder’s for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and the applicable regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), including any “group” of which such holder is a member, would beneficially own a number of shares of Common Stock in excess of the Beneficial Ownership Limitation (the “Beneficial Ownership Blocker”). The “Beneficial Ownership Limitation” is 4.99% of the shares of Common Stock then issued and outstanding, which percentage may be changed at a holder’s election upon 61 days’ notice to the Issuer. Because the percentage of shares of Common Stock collectively held directly by the Redmile Affiliates currently exceeds 4.99%, the conversion of the Non-Voting Common Stock held by the Redmile Affiliates is currently limited in its entirety by the Beneficial Ownership Blocker and the Reporting Persons therefore cannot be deemed to have beneficial ownership over any of the shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Non-Voting Common Stock and such shares have not been included in the aggregate amount of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned as reported in the table above.

 

(3) Percent of class calculated based on: (a) 22,460,740 shares of Common Stock outstanding after the Issuer’s initial public offering, as disclosed in the Issuer’s final prospectus filed with the SEC pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, on September 18, 2019 (the “Final Prospectus”), plus (b) 1,640,625 shares of Common Stock issued in the Issuer’s initial public offering pursuant to the full exercise of the underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares.

Jeremy C. Green serves as the managing member of Redmile Group, LLC and also may be deemed to be the beneficial owner of these shares. Redmile Group, LLC and Mr. Green each disclaim beneficial ownership of these shares, except to the extent of its or his pecuniary interest in such shares, if any. The Non-Voting Common Stock is initially convertible into shares of Common Stock on a one-for-one basis. Pursuant to the Certificate of Incorporation, the Issuer may not effect any conversion of the Non-Voting Common Stock, and a holder of the Non-Voting Common Stock does not have the right to convert any portion of the Non-Voting Common Stock held by such holder, if the Beneficial Ownership Blocker applies. Because the percentage of shares of Common Stock collectively held directly by the Redmile Affiliates currently exceeds 4.99%, the conversion of the Non-Voting Common Stock held by the Redmile Affiliates is currently limited in its entirety by the Beneficial Ownership Blocker and the Reporting Persons therefore cannot be deemed to have beneficial ownership over any of the shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Non-Voting Common Stock and such shares have not been included in the aggregate amount of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned as reported in the table above.

 

(3) Percent of class calculated based on: (a) 22,460,740 shares of Common Stock outstanding after the Issuer’s initial public offering, as disclosed in the Final Prospectus, plus (b) 1,640,625 shares of Common Stock issued in the Issuer’s initial public offering pursuant to the full exercise of the underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares.

During the last five years, none of the Reporting Persons has been convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors).

 

ITEM 3.Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

 

The source of funds was working capital of the entities for which Redmile Group, LLC is the investment manager/adviser listed in items (i) through (x) of Item 5(a) below. The stock option to purchase shares of Common Stock was granted to Michael S. Lee in connection with his service on the Issuer’s Board of Directors pursuant to the Issuer’s non-employee director compensation policy.

 

The shares of non-voting Common Stock (“Non-Voting Common Stock”) held by certain of the Redmile Affiliates (as defined in Item 5(a) below) were issued immediately prior to the Issuer’s initial public offering (the “IPO”) upon the conversion of the Issuer’s Series C Preferred Stock, $0.01 par value per share (the “Series C Preferred Stock”). On June 27, 2019, the Issuer entered into a Series C Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Series C Purchase Agreement”) for a Series C financing (the “Series C Financing”) with a group of institutional investors, including certain of the Redmile Affiliates. Pursuant to the Series C Purchase Agreement, such Redmile Affiliates purchased an aggregate of 12,500,000 shares of Series C Preferred Stock at a price of $2.00 per share. The source of funds was working capital of such Redmile Affiliates. On August 30, 2019, the Issuer effected a 6.6084-for-1 reverse stock split of the Issuer’s Common Stock, Non-Voting Common Stock and convertible preferred stock. Upon completion of the reverse stock split, such Redmile Affiliates held an aggregate of 1,891,530 shares of Series C Preferred Stock. In accordance with the terms of the Issuer’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, such Redmile Affiliates had the option to convert the Series C Preferred Stock into either shares of the Issuer’s voting Common Stock or Non-Voting Common Stock in any proportion at such Redmile Affiliates’ sole discretion prior to the closing of a firm-commitment underwritten public offering pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), covering the offer and sale of the Issuer’s Common Stock. The Redmile Affiliates elected to have all of the Series C Preferred Stock converted into shares of the Issuer’s Non-Voting Common Stock, and the Series C Preferred Stock converted into shares of the Issuer’s Non-Voting Common Stock upon the closing of the Issuer’s IPO on September 20, 2019 on a 1-for-1 basis.

ITEM 4.Purpose of Transaction.

 

The Reporting Persons acquired the Common Stock covered by this Schedule 13D for investment purposes, in the ordinary course of business.

 

The Reporting Persons will routinely monitor a wide variety of investment considerations, including, without limitation, current and anticipated future trading prices for the Common Stock, the Issuer’s operations, assets, prospects, business development, markets and capitalization, the Issuer’s management and personnel, Issuer-related competitive and strategic matters, general economic, financial market and industry conditions, as well as other investment considerations. The Reporting Persons expect to discuss their investment in the Issuer and the foregoing investment considerations with the Issuer’s Board of Directors (“Board of Directors”), management, other investors, industry analysts and others. These considerations, these discussions and other factors may result in the Reporting Persons’ consideration of various alternatives with respect to their investment, including possible changes in the present Board of Directors and/or management of the Issuer or other alternatives to increase stockholder value. The Reporting Persons may also enter into confidentiality or similar agreements with the Issuer and, subject to such an agreement or otherwise, exchange information with the Issuer. In addition, the Reporting Persons may acquire additional Issuer securities in the public markets, in privately negotiated transactions or otherwise (including through the conversion of shares of the Non-Voting Common Stock that may be deemed to be beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons) or may determine to sell, trade or otherwise dispose of all or some holdings in the Issuer in the public markets, in privately negotiated transactions or otherwise, or take any other lawful action they deem to be in their best interests.

 

On July 2, 2019, the Issuer’s Board of Directors appointed Michael S. Lee, a managing director of Redmile, to serve as a director of the Issuer. Immediately prior to the Issuer’s IPO, which was completed on September 20, 2019, Mr. Lee was appointed a Class III director to serve until the Issuer’s 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders or until his successor has been duly elected and qualified, or until his earlier death, resignation or removal. In connection with Mr. Lee’s appointment to the Issuer’s Board of Directors, Mr. Lee and the Issuer entered into an Indemnification Agreement with the Issuer. On 27, 2019, Mr. Lee and the Issuer entered into an Indemnification Agreement in the same form as the Issuer’s standard form of indemnification agreement with its other directors.

 

In addition, Mr. Lee is entitled to cash and equity compensation pursuant to the Issuer’s Outside Director Compensation Policy (the “Policy”). Pursuant to the Policy, Mr. Lee is entitled to receive an annual cash retainer of $20,000 to be paid quarterly, in arrears. If Mr. Lee serves on any committees of the Issuer’s Board of Directors, he will be entitled to receive additional cash compensation. Under the Policy, non-employee directors receive $5,000 annually for serving on the audit committee ($10,000 annually for the chairperson), $5,000 annually for serving on the compensation committee ($10,000 annually for the chairperson), $5,000 annually for serving on the nominating and corporate governance committee ($10,000 annually for the chairperson) and $5,000 annually for serving on the research and clinical development committee ($10,000 annually for the chairperson). A non-employee director also receives $20,000 annually for serving as the chairperson of the Issuer’s Board of Directors.

 

On September 17, 2019, Mr. Lee received an option to purchase 12,100 shares of the Issuer’s common stock at an exercise price of $16.00 per share. 1/3rd of the shares subject to the option will vest on September 17, 2020 and 1/36th of the shares subject to the option will vest on each monthly anniversary thereafter, subject to Mr. Lee’s continued service on the Board of Directors of the Issuer through each vesting date. Pursuant to the Policy, Mr. Lee will also be entitled to receive an option to purchase 6,050 shares of the Issuer’s common stock automatically at the same time the Issuer makes annual equity awards to the Issuer’s executive officers, which option will vest in equal monthly installments during the twelve months following the date of the Issuer’s first annual meeting of stockholders following the date of grant, and will vest in full on the earlier of the twelve-month anniversary of the date of the Issuer’s first annual meeting of stockholders following the date of grant and the date of the Issuer’s second regularly scheduled annual meeting of stockholders that next follows the date of grant, subject to Mr. Lee’s continued service on the Board of Directors of the Issuer through each applicable vesting date.

 

 -7- 

 

Pursuant to the policies of Redmile, any stock options or other equity awards granted to Mr. Lee in connection with his service on the Issuer’s Board of Directors will be held by him as a nominee on behalf, and for the sole benefit, of Redmile and Mr. Lee will assign all economic, pecuniary and voting rights in respect of any such equity awards to Redmile. Mr. Lee disclaims beneficial ownership of such securities, and the filing of this Schedule 13D shall not be deemed an admission that Mr. Lee is the beneficial owner of such securities for any purpose. The Reporting Persons disclaim beneficial ownership of all such securities except to the extent of their pecuniary interest therein, and this Schedule 13D shall not be deemed an admission that the Reporting Persons are the beneficial owner of such securities any purpose.

 

Pursuant to the policies of Redmile, all cash compensation that Mr. Lee receives in connection with his service on the Issuer’s Board of Directors will be paid by the Issuer directly to Redmile.

 

Except as set forth in this Item 4, no Reporting Person has any present plans or proposals that relate to or would result in: (a) the acquisition by any person of additional securities of the Issuer, or the disposition of securities of the Issuer; (b) an extraordinary corporate transaction, such as a merger, reorganization or liquidation, involving the Issuer or any of its subsidiaries; (c) a sale or transfer of a material amount of assets of the Issuer or of any of its subsidiaries; (d) any change in the present board of directors or management of the Issuer, including any plans or proposals to change the number or term of such directors or to fill any existing vacancies on such board; (e) any material change in the present capitalization or dividend policy of the Issuer; (f) any other material change in the Issuer’s business or corporate structure; (g) changes in the Issuer’s charter, by-laws or instruments corresponding thereto or other actions that may impede the acquisition of control of the Issuer by any person; (h) causing a class of securities of the Issuer to be delisted from a national securities exchange or to cease to be authorized to be quoted in an inter-dealer quotation system of a registered national securities association; (i) a class of equity securities of the Issuer becoming eligible for termination of registration pursuant to Section 12(g)(4) of the Exchange Act; or (j) any action similar to any of those enumerated in subparagraphs (a)-(i) above. There is no assurance that the Reporting Persons will develop any plans or proposals with respect to any of these matters. However, the Reporting Persons reserve the right to formulate plans or proposals which would relate to or result in the transactions described in subparagraphs (a) through (j) of this Item 4.

 

ITEM 5.Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

 

(a) The aggregate amount of shares of Common Stock that may be deemed beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons is comprised of the following: (i) 561,300 shares of Common Stock held by Redmile Capital Fund, L.P., (ii) 1,407,200 shares of Common Stock held by Redmile Capital Offshore Fund, Ltd., (iii) 99,200 shares of Common Stock held by Redmile Capital Offshore Fund (ERISA), Ltd., (iv) 230,800 shares of Common Stock held by Redmile Capital Offshore Fund II, Ltd., (v) 216,500 shares of Common Stock and 84,850 shares of Non-Voting Common Stock held by Redmile Strategic Master Fund, LP, (vi) 1,513,225 shares of Non-Voting Common Stock held by Redmile Biopharma Investments II, L.P., (vii) 91,100 shares of Common Stock held by P Redmile Ltd., (viii) 293,455 shares of Non-Voting Common Stock held by RAF, L.P., (ix) 175,087 shares of Common Stock held by Map 20 Segregated Portfolio, a segregated portfolio of LMA SPC, and (x) 362,813 shares of Common Stock held by a separately managed account. Redmile Group, LLC is the investment manager/adviser to each of the private investment vehicles and separately managed accounts listed in items (i) through (x) (collectively, the “Redmile Affiliates”) and, in such capacity, exercises sole voting and investment power over all of the shares held by the Redmile Affiliates and may be deemed to be the beneficial owner of these shares. Jeremy C. Green serves as the managing member of Redmile Group, LLC and also may be deemed to be the beneficial owner of these shares. Redmile Group, LLC and Mr. Green each disclaim beneficial ownership of these shares, except to the extent of its or his pecuniary interest in such shares, if any. The Non-Voting Common Stock is initially convertible into shares of Common Stock on a one-for-one basis. Pursuant to the Issuer’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Certificate of Incorporation”), the Issuer may not effect any conversion of the Non-Voting Common Stock, and a holder of the Non-Voting Common Stock does not have the right to convert any portion of the Non-Voting Common Stock held by such holder, to the extent that, after giving effect to the attempted conversion set forth in a notice of conversion, such holder, together with such holder’s affiliates and any other person whose beneficial ownership of Common Stock would be aggregated with such holder’s for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act, and the applicable regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), including any “group” of which such holder is a member, would beneficially own a number of shares of Common Stock in excess of the Beneficial Ownership Limitation (the “Beneficial Ownership Blocker”). The “Beneficial Ownership Limitation” is 4.99% of the shares of Common Stock then issued and outstanding, which percentage may be changed at a holder’s election upon 61 days’ notice to the Issuer. Because the percentage of shares of Common Stock collectively held directly by the Redmile Affiliates currently exceeds 4.99%, the conversion of the Non-Voting Common Stock held by the Redmile Affiliates is currently limited in its entirety by the Beneficial Ownership Blocker and the Reporting Persons therefore cannot be deemed to have beneficial ownership over any of the shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Non-Voting Common Stock and such shares have not been included in the aggregate amount of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned as reported in Item 5(b) below.

 

 -8- 

 

For purposes of this Schedule 13D, the percent of class was calculated based on: (a) 22,460,740 shares of Common Stock outstanding after the Issuer’s IPO, as disclosed in the Issuer’s final prospectus filed with the SEC pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act on September 18, 2019 (the “Final Prospectus”), plus (b) 1,640,625 shares of Common Stock issued in the Issuer’s initial public offering pursuant to the full exercise of the underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares.

Pursuant to the Investor Rights Agreement, the Issuer agreed to prepare and file a registration statement with the SEC to register for resale (i) the shares of Common Stock issued or issuable to the holders of Series A Preferred Stock, Series B Preferred Stock or Series C Preferred Stock, (ii) the shares of Common Stock issued or issuable upon conversion of shares of Series A Preferred Stock, Series B Preferred Stock or Series C Preferred Stock of the Issuer, (iii) the stock issued with respect to or in any exchange for or in replacement of stock included in (ii) above, and (iv) stock issued in respect of the stock referred to in (ii) and (ii) above as a result of a stock split, stock dividend or the like (collectively, the “Registrable Securities”) in certain situations, as provided below.
