Explanatory Note.

Ligand Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (the “Company”) hereby files this Amendment No. 1 to its Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on October 10, 2018 (the “Original Form 8-K”), to amend Item 9.01 therein as provided herein.

At the time of filing of the Original Form 8-K disclosing the acquisition (the “Acquisition”) by the Company of all the issued and to be issued share capital of Vernalis plc (“Vernalis”), the Company indicated that it would file the financial statements and pro forma financial information required by Item 9.01(a) and 9.01(b), respectively, of Form 8-K within 71 calendar days after the date that the Original Form 8-K was required to be filed.

The Company has reviewed the Acquisition since the Original Form 8-K was filed, and the Company has determined that the Acquisition does not constitute a significant acquisition requiring the inclusion of the financial statements and pro forma financial information contemplated by Item 9.01 of Form 8-K. Accordingly, the Company hereby amends the Original Form 8-K to remove in its entirety Item 9.01 from the Original Form 8-K.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
