EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

On April 15, 2021, Affimed N.V. (the “Company”) filed its Annual Report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 (the “Original Form 20-F”). This Amendment No. 1 (the “Amendment”) amends the Original Form 20-F solely to correct the consent of our independent accounting firm, KPMG AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft (the “Auditor”). The auditor consent included in the Original Form 20-F inadvertently omitted the incorporation by reference into the Company’s Form F-3 (File No. 333-227933). A new auditor consent with the relevant corrections is filed as Exhibit 15.1 hereto.

 

This Amendment with respect to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form F-3 (File No. 333-227933) speaks as of the filing date of the Original Form 20-F and does not reflect any other events occurring after the filing of the Original Form 20-F. No revisions are being made to the Company’s financial statements or any other disclosure contained in the Original Form 20-F. This Amendment does not otherwise update any exhibits as originally filed or previously amended.

 

In addition, as required by Rule 12b-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), new certifications by the Company’s principal executive officer and principal financial officer are filed herewith as exhibits to this Amendment pursuant to Rule 13a-14(a) of the Exchange Act and Section 1350 of Chapter 63 of Title 18 of the United States Code (18 U.S.C. 1350).
