INCORPORATION BY REFERENCE

This report on Form 6-K shall be deemed to be incorporated by reference into the registration statements on Form S-8 (Registration Numbers 333-228576, 333-203040, 333-210810, 333-211512, 333-213412, 333-214843, 333-216883, 333-254101, and 333-261550) and Form F-3 (Registration Numbers 333-209336, 333-211511, 333-216882, 333-223134, 333-225284, and 333-256571) of Ascendis Pharma A/S (the “Company”) (including any prospectuses forming a part of such registration statements) and to be a part thereof from the date on which this report is filed, to the extent not superseded by documents or reports subsequently filed or furnished.

On May 23, 2022, the Company announced that results from its associate VISEN Pharmaceuticals’ Phase 3 trial of once-weekly TransCon hGH in children with growth hormone deficiency in China demonstrated results that were consistent with the Company’s earlier multi-national Phase 3 trial. VISEN Pharmaceuticals’ Phase 3 trial achieved its primary endpoint, with pediatric growth hormone deficiency patients treated with once-weekly TransCon hGH demonstrating greater annualized height velocity at 52-weeks (p=0.0010) compared to patients treated with daily growth hormone. In both the Company’s and Visen Pharmaceuticals’ Phase 3 trials, TransCon hGH data demonstrated statistical non-inferiority and superiority on the primary endpoint with comparable safety and tolerability to daily growth hormone.
