EXPLANATORY NOTE

This Amendment No. 3 (“Amendment No. 3”) relates to the shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Common Stock”), of Madrigal Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer”). This Amendment No. 3 amends and supplements the statement on Schedule 13D filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission on July 29, 2016 (as amended to date, the “Statement”). All capitalized terms used and not expressly defined herein have the respective meanings ascribed to such terms in the Statement.

 

Item 2.

Identity and Background.

Item 2 of the Statement is amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

This statement is being filed by the following persons (each a “Reporting Person” and, collectively, the “Reporting Persons”):

Fred B. Craves, Ph.D. (“Dr. Craves”),

Bay City Capital LLC (“BCC”),

Bay City Capital Management IV LLC (“Management IV”),

Bay City Capital Fund IV, L.P. (“Fund IV”), and

Dr. Craves, the Managing Director and sole member of BCC, is a director of the Issuer. The principal business of BCC is to serve as an advisor to life science investors, principally those investment funds sponsored by it or its owners, and to serve as a member and/or the manager of the general partners of such funds.

The principal business of Management IV is to serve as the general partner of Fund IV, Co-Investment IV and other pooled investment vehicles formed to invest in parallel with Fund IV and Co-Investment IV.

During the past five years, none of the Reporting Persons (i) has been convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors), or (ii) was a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction as a result of which such person 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

Item 3 of the Statement is amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

On July 22, 2016, the Issuer, formerly known as “Synta Pharmaceuticals Corp.” completed its business combination with Madrigal Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Madrigal”), in accordance with the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization, dated as of April 13, 2016 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among the Issuer, Saffron Merger Sub, Inc. (“Merger Sub”) and Madrigal, pursuant to which Merger Sub merged with and into Madrigal, with Madrigal surviving as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Issuer (the “Merger”). Also on July 22, 2016, in connection with, and prior to completion of, the Merger, the Issuer effected a 1-for-35 reverse stock split of its common stock (the “Reverse Stock Split”) and, following the Merger, changed its name to “Madrigal Pharmaceuticals, Inc.”

Prior to the consummation of the Merger, Fund IV and Co-Investment IV held convertible promissory notes of Madrigal which, immediately prior to the consummation of the Merger, converted into an aggregate of


35,526,713 shares of common stock of Madrigal Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (as a private company). Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger, Fund IV and Co-Investment IV acquired an aggregate of 5,657,854 shares of Common Stock in exchange for each share of common stock of Madrigal Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (as a private company) held by the Reporting Persons immediately prior to the Merger, taking into account the Reverse Stock Split. Also in connection with the Merger, Dr. Craves received 296,067 shares of shares of Common Stock in exchange for shares of Madrigal Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (as a private company).

Dr. Craves purchased 2,000 shares of Common Stock in open market transactions on November 19, 2018 for aggregate consideration of $249,387.00. Additionally, Dr. Craves has received options to purchase 50,000 shares of Common Stock from the Issuer as compensation for his service as a director of the Issuer.

Item 4 of the Statement is amended and supplemented by inserting the following information:

On May 27, 2020, Fund IV, Co-Investment IV and BCC made in-kind transfers, without the payment of any consideration, of 360,561 shares, 6,772 shares and 44,903 shares, respectively, of Common Stock to their partners and employees.
