Eidos forward-looking statements This presentation contains forward-looking statements about Eidos Therapeutics, Inc. (“we,” “Eidos,” or the “Company”). All statements other than statements of historical facts contained in this presentation are forward-looking statements, including the statements about the potential therapeutic and clinical benefits of acoramidis (AG10), its potential to become a best-in-class treatment for ATTR-CM, future clinical milestones of acoramidis, including the completion of enrollment in and the availability of potential top-line data from the ATTRibute-CM trial, the initiation of the planned Phase 3 ATTRibute-PN trial, the timing of these events, the indications we intend to pursue, our clinical or other business strategies and our financial position, including our cash runway. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and assumptions, including, but not limited to: our limited operating history and historical losses, our liquidity to fund the development of acoramidis through current and future milestones, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on our clinical development plans and business operations, our ability to raise additional funding to complete the development of acoramidis, our dependence on the success of acoramidis, our ability to enroll patients in the ATTRibute-CM trial and other planned clinical trials of acoramidis, results from our clinical trials and pre-clinical studies and those of third parties working in the same area as our product candidate, our ability to advance acoramidis in clinical development in accordance with our plans, and our dependence on third parties in connection with our manufacturing, clinical trials and pre-clinical studies. In light of these and other risks, uncertainties and assumptions, the forward-looking events and circumstances discussed in this presentation may not occur and actual results could differ materially and adversely from those anticipated or implied in the forward-looking statements. These and other potential risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ from the results predicted are more fully detailed in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, and our other periodic filings with the SEC. It is not possible for our management to predict all risks, nor can we assess the impact of all factors on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements we may make. Except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements for any reason after the date of this presentation to conform these statements to actual results or to changes in our expectations.

Transthyretin (TTR) amyloidosis (ATTR) is a systemic disease with multiple manifestations Source: Grogan, M et al. JACC 2016, 68:1014-20; Planté-Bordeneuve, V. and Said, G. Lancet Neurol 2011, 10:1086-97 Systemic disease with high burden Central nervous system Ocular Gastrointestinal Nephropathy Carpal tunnel ATTR wild-type cardiomyopathy (ATTRwt-CM) Deposition of wild-type TTR amyloid in the heart, leading to predominantly diastolic heart failure Likely affects 400K+ worldwide, majority undiagnosed Late onset (age 50+), progressive and fatal (median survival of 3-5 years) ATTR mutant CM (ATTRm-CM) Deposition of mutant (e.g., V122I) TTR amyloid in heart Likely affects 40K+ worldwide, majority undiagnosed Late onset (age 50+), progressive and fatal (median survival of 3-5 years) ATTR polyneuropathy (ATTR-PN) Affects ~10K worldwide, primarily in EU and Japan Exclusively caused by mutant TTR (e.g., V30M) Onset between ages of 30 and 50, progressive and fatal (median survival of 5-10 years)

Slide 8

Acoramidis is designed to treat TTR amyloidosis at its source Native TTR circulates in blood as a tetramer Dissociation into monomers initiates pathogenesis Monomers aggregate, causing disease Acoramidis stabilizes TTR tetramers, preventing dissociation and halting disease progression Disease mechanism Therapeutic hypothesis ~130 known destabilizing mutations Protective T119M mutation

Slide 9

Higher dose of TTR stabilizer (tafamidis) demonstrated greater clinical benefit in ATTR-ACT + long-term extension Phase 3 ATTR-ACT study tested two doses of tafamidis (20 mg & 80 mg) vs. placebo In an analysis of ATTR-ACT combined with long-term extension (LTE), benefit of tafamidis 80 mg vs. 20 mg was evident on all-cause mortality1 At baseline, ATTR-ACT participants treated with 80 mg of tafamidis were older and had more severe evidence of disease than those treated with 20 mg of tafamidis1 Participants receiving 80 mg of tafamidis (vs. 20 mg) exhibited greater TTR stabilization2 1 Damy, T., ESC Heart Failure Association Discoveries 2020. “The Tafamidis in Transthyretin Cardiomyopathy Clinical Trial.” 2 FDA CDER Clinical Pharmacology and Biopharmaceutics, Clinical Review (Vyndaqel/Vyndamax), 2019; Fourfold increase in tafamidis dose did not lead to a fourfold increase in TTR stabilization due to non-linear pharmacokinetics Increased levels of TTR stabilization may translate to improved clinical outcomes in ATTR-CM TTR stabilization2 All-cause mortality1

Slide 10

Clinical benefit was correlated with extent of TTR stabilization or knockdown in ATTR-PN clinical studies % peak stabilization/knockdown ~45% ~75% ~75% ~85% * Statistically significant improvement on primary endpoint Note: Direct cross-study comparisons may suggest misleading similarities or differences. The values shown are directional and do not report robust comparative analysis. These data are based on cross-trial comparisons and not based on any head-to-head clinical trials. As a result, the values shown may not be directly comparable, are “directional” and do not report robust comparative analyses.

PNAS 2002, 99:16427-16432 Relative TTR tetramer stability kdiss, WT / kdiss, mutant Disease severity Carriers protected against ATTR Low ATTR penetrance, late onset with slow progression Carriers exhibit increased ATTR penetrance, earlier onset, and more rapid progression than WT Carriers nearly 100% likely to develop ATTR, highly pathogenic form of disease Greater TTR destabilization correlates with earlier disease onset, increased disease severity ATTR-protective mutations stabilize TTR tetramer, preventing dissociation
