Shares of Reata Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Registrant”) may be issued under the Reata Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Second Amended and Restated Long Term Incentive Plan, as amended from time to time (the “Plan”) up to the maximum number reserved thereunder.  Awards may be granted under the Plan with respect to either Class A common stock or Class B common stock of the Registrant (each counting equally against the aggregate total reserved).  On June 12, 2019, the shareholders of the Registrant approved the Plan, increasing the total shares of Class A common stock or Class B common stock that may be issued under the Plan to 6,804,443 (the “Restatement”). This Form S-8 Registration Statement (the “Registration Statement”) registers an additional 2,607,487 shares of each of Class A common stock and Class B common stock in connection with the Restatement, which includes shares intended to account for the gross counting method used to count the registration of shares on Form S-8 and the net share counting provisions of the Plan. For purposes of clarity, no more than an additional 2,607,487 shares of any class will be issued under the Plan with respect to new awards pursuant to this Registration Statement.  Additionally, pursuant to Rule 416(a) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), there are also being registered such additional shares of Class A common stock and Class B common Stock of the Registrant as may become issuable pursuant to the adjustment provisions of the Plan.

(2)

Estimated solely for purposes of calculating the registration fee in accordance with Rule 457(h) under the Securities Act. The price for the Class A common stock and Class B common stock being registered hereby is based on a price of $87.84 per share of Class A common stock, which is the average of the high and low trading prices for a share of Class A common stock of the Registrant as reported on the NASDAQ Global Market on June 6, 2019.

(3)

Pursuant to General Instruction E to Form S-8, a registration fee is only being paid with respect to the registration of an additional 2,607,487 aggregate shares of either Class A common stock or Class B common stock under the Plan.

EXPLANATORY NOTE

The Registrant is filing this Registration Statement pursuant to General Instruction E of Form S-8 to register the offer and sale of an aggregate of an additional 2,607,487 shares of Class A and Class B common stock that may be issued under the Plan. These additional shares of common stock have become reserved for issuance as a result of the Restatement, which was approved by the Registrant’s shareholders on June 12, 2019.

The contents of the Registrant’s registration statements on Form S-8 relating to the Plan, which were filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on May 27, 2016 (File No. 333-211682), March 3, 2017 (File No. 333-216412), March 2, 2018 (File No. 333-223407) and February 28, 2019 (File No. 333-229954), are incorporated by reference into this Registration Statement, as permitted by General Instruction E of Form S-8.
