Narrative

State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-CEN, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.

On February 21, 2019, Eidos Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”, “our” or “we”) disclosed in a Current Report on Form 8-K that, on February 15, 2019, we dismissed PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (“PwC”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm following PwC’s notification to the Company that (a) information had come to PwC’s attention that required it and the Company to evaluate a potential independence rule violation resulting from PwC’s provision of certain non-audit services to affiliates of the Company during the audit periods for the years ended December 31, 2016 and December 31, 2017, and subsequently, and (b) PwC’s audit report on the financial statements as of and for the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016 should not be relied upon. We further disclosed that, on February 18, 2019, the Audit Committee (the “Committee”) of the Company’s Board of Directors engaged Ernst & Young LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm to audit the Company’s financial statements for its year ended December 31, 2018 and to re-audit the Company’s financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016 (the “Applicable Periods”).

On April 1, 2019, the Company disclosed in a Current Report on Form 8-K that, on March 29, 2019, during the course of its financial statement close process for the year ended December 31, 2018 and the re-audit of the Applicable Periods, the Committee, after discussion with management and the Company’s new independent registered public accountants, Ernst & Young LLP, determined that a restatement of the Company’s financial statements for the first three quarterly periods in the year ended December 31, 2018 is required in order to properly account for the Company’s Series Seed convertible preferred stock, convertible notes and Series B convertible preferred stock and the related tranche liabilities, embedded derivatives, and beneficial conversion features within those instruments.

The Company intends to include in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 (the “2018 Form 10-K”) restated financial information for the first three quarterly periods in the year ended December 31, 2018 in order to properly account for the Company’s Series Seed convertible preferred stock, convertible notes and Series B convertible preferred stock and the related tranche liabilities, embedded derivatives, and beneficial conversion features within those instruments. Accordingly, the condensed interim financial statements previously reported for these periods should no longer be relied upon. All such adjustments to the results for the affected interim periods during the year ended December 31, 2018 are non-cash adjustments and do not impact the amounts previously reported for the Company’s cash and cash equivalents, nor do they relate to the Company’s operating performance or financial condition.

In consideration of these adjustments, the Company expects to report in its 2018 Form 10-K a material weakness in internal controls related to the accounting for complex debt and equity transactions and ineffective disclosure controls. The Company is in the process of remediating the material weakness and improving its disclosure controls by hiring additional finance and accounting personnel and implementing systems to strengthen its internal technical accounting capabilities and disclosure controls processes and procedures.

Due to the timing and complexity of these matters, and the fact that the audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2018 cannot be finalized until after the restated financial statements are completed, the Company will not be able to file its 2018 Form 10-K by its due date (April 1, 2019) without unreasonable effort and expense. The Company undertakes the responsibility to file the 2018 Form 10-K no later than fifteen days after its prescribed due date.
