To the Stockholders of Leap Therapeutics, Inc.:

 

This supplement updates the Definitive Proxy Statement, dated February 10, 2020, previously furnished to stockholders of Leap Therapeutics, Inc., a Delaware corporation, in connection with the Special Meeting of Stockholders of Leap Therapeutics, Inc. to be held on March 5, 2020 (the “Special Meeting”). Unless the context otherwise requires, references herein to “we”, “our” or the “Company” refer to Leap Therapeutics, Inc.

 

Explanatory Note

 

This supplement is being filed solely to correct a typo on the proxy card which (i) mislabeled Proposal No. 2, the Approval of Private Placement Issuance Proposal, as Proposal No. “3” on the proxy card and (ii) mislabeled Proposal No. 3, the Authorization to Adjourn the Special Meeting Proposal, as Proposal No. “2” on the proxy card. Accordingly we are furnishing you with a new proxy card for purposes of casting your vote on the proposals to be voted on at the Special Meeting.

 

Why am I receiving these materials?

 

The Company is sending these materials to its stockholders to correct the typo on the proxy card outlined above. Only stockholders of record at the close of business on January 17, 2020 are entitled to notice of, and to vote at, the Special Meeting, including any postponement thereof with respect to the Proposals.
