The transaction valuation was calculated as the sum of (i) 48,151,481 outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Shares”), of Forty Seven, Inc. (“Forty Seven”) multiplied by $95.50, (ii) 1,341,064 Shares issuable pursuant to outstanding stock options that have vested (or are anticipated to vest prior to the completion of the transaction) multiplied by $95.50, and (iii) 2,924,066 Shares issuable pursuant to outstanding unvested stock options multiplied by $76.21 (which is $95.50 minus the weighted average exercise price for such options of $19.29 per share). The calculation of the filing fee is based on information provided by Forty Seven as of February 29, 2020.

**      The filing fee was calculated in accordance with Rule 0-11 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Fee Rate Advisory No. 1 for Fiscal Year 2020, issued August 23, 2019, by multiplying the transaction value by 0.0001298.

This Amendment No. 2 (this “Amendment”) amends and supplements the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO filed by Toro Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Purchaser”), and Gilead Sciences, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Parent”), with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on March 10, 2020 (together with any subsequent amendments and supplements thereto, the “Schedule TO”). The Schedule TO relates to the offer by Purchaser to purchase all outstanding shares of common stock, $0.0001 par value per share (the “Shares”), of Forty Seven, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Forty Seven”), at a price of $95.50 per Share, net to the holder in cash, without interest and subject to any withholding of taxes, upon the terms and subject to the conditions described in the Offer to Purchase dated March 10, 2020 (together with any amendments or supplements thereto, the “Offer to Purchase”) and in the accompanying Letter of Transmittal (together with any amendments or supplements thereto and with the Offer to Purchase, the “Offer”), which are annexed to and filed with the Schedule TO as Exhibits (a)(1)(A) and (a)(1)(B), respectively. Purchaser is a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent. This Amendment is being filed on behalf of Parent and Purchaser. Unless otherwise indicated, references to sections in the Schedule TO are references to sections of the Offer to Purchase.


Amendments to the Offer to Purchase:


Items 1 through 11.


The information set forth in the Offer to Purchase under “The Tender Offer—Section 15—Certain Legal Matters; Regulatory Approvals” and Items 1 through 11 of the Schedule TO, to the extent such Items incorporate by reference the information contained in the Offer to Purchase, are hereby amended and supplemented by replacing in its entirety the paragraph entitled “Legal Proceedings Related to the Tender Offer” on page 57 of the Offer to Purchase with the following:


Legal Proceedings Related to the Tender Offer.


On March 16 and 17, 2020, complaints were filed by purported stockholders of Forty Seven regarding the Merger. The first complaint, filed on an individual basis by the plaintiff, is captioned Stephen Bushanksy v. Forty Seven, Inc., et al., Case No. 3:20-cv-01853 (N.D. Cal. filed Mar. 16, 2020). The second complaint, filed as a putative class action, is captioned Joseph Post v. Forty Seven, Inc., et al., No. 1:20-cv-00377 (D. Del. filed Mar. 17, 2020) (collectively, the “Complaints”). The Complaints name as defendants Forty Seven and each member of the Forty Seven Board. The Post complaint additionally names as defendants Parent and Purchaser. The Complaints allege violations of Section 14(e) of the Exchange Act against all defendants, and assert violations of Section 20(a) of the Exchange Act against the individual defendants. The Post complaint additionally alleges a violation of Section 14(d) of the Exchange Act against all defendants and a violation of Section 20(a) of the Exchange Act against Parent and Purchaser. The plaintiffs contend that the Schedule 14D-9 omitted or misrepresented material information regarding the Merger. The Complaints seek (i) injunctive relief preventing the consummation of the Transactions; (ii) rescissory damages or rescission in the event the Transactions are consummated; and (iii) an award of plaintiff’s expenses and attorneys’ fees. The Post complaint additionally seeks dissemination of a recommendation statement that discloses certain information requested by that plaintiff. Parent and Purchaser believe the claims asserted in the Complaints are without merit.


Additional lawsuits may be filed against Forty Seven, the Forty Seven Board, Parent and/or Purchaser in connection with the Transactions, the Schedule TO and the Schedule 14D-9.”





After due inquiry and to the best of my knowledge and belief, I certify that the information set forth in this statement is true, complete and correct.
