(1)Pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated April 12, 2022, between GlaxoSmithKline plc (“GSK”), Orikum Acquisition Inc. (“Merger Sub”) and Sierra Oncology, Inc. (the “Issuer”) (the “Merger Agreement”), Merger Sub merged with and into the Issuer on July 1, 2022, with the Issuer surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of GSK (the “Merger”). At the effective time of the Merger, each outstanding share of common stock of the Issuer automatically and without any required action on the part of the Reporting Person, was converted into the right to receive $55.00 in cash, without interest. Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, the Issuer’s outstanding Series A Warrants (the “Series A Warrants”) were treated in accordance with their respective terms such that, at the effective time of the Merger, the outstanding Series A Warrants were cancelled and thereafter represent only the right to receive an amount in cash, without interest, equal to the Black Scholes Value (as defined in the Series A Warrants), which as calculated under the terms of the Series A Warrants equaled $45.98 per share of common stock underlying such warrants.
