Explanatory Note

 

This Amendment No. 1 to the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO (this “Amendment”) amends and supplements the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC’) on August 10, 2023 (the “Schedule TO”), by HOOKIPA Pharma Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), in connection with its offer to exchange Eligible Options for New Options pursuant to the Offer to Exchange Eligible Options for New Options, dated August 10, 2023 (the “Exchange Offer”).

 

This Amendment is being filed solely to amend “Item 4-Terms of the Transaction” to reflect and report the final results of the Exchange Offer under the caption “Material Terms.” Except as otherwise noted below, no changes have been made to the Schedule TO. This Amendment should be read in conjunction with the Schedule TO and the Exchange Offer. All capitalized terms used herein have the same meanings as given in the Exchange Offer.
