On September 6, 2022, SpringWorks Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company” or “SpringWorks”) and GlaxoSmithKline Intellectual Property Development Limited (“GSK”) entered into an Amended and Restated Clinical Trial Collaboration and License Agreement (the “License Agreement”) for potential Phase 3 development and commercialization of nirogacestat, SpringWorks’ investigational oral gamma secretase inhibitor, in combination with Blenrep (belantamab mafodotin-blmf), GSK’s antibody-drug conjugate targeting B-cell maturation antigen (“BCMA”). The License Agreement amends and restates that certain Clinical Trial Collaboration and Supply Agreement between the Company and GlaxoSmithKline LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, effective June 25, 2019, as amended on October 22, 2021 (the “Original Agreement”). The Original Agreement was entered into to evaluate nirogacestat and belantamab mafodotin-blmf as a combination therapy for the treatment of relapsed refractory multiple myeloma as part of GSK’s adaptive Phase 1b/2 DREAMM-5 clinical trial.
The License Agreement, among other things, allocated to GSK additional development rights with respect to the Combination Regimen (as defined below) and provided for funding by GSK of such development activities as well as later stage development and commercial milestone payments to the Company.
Pursuant to the License Agreement, the Company granted GSK a non-exclusive license to patents and know-how controlled by the Company (1) to research and develop belantamab (or any cytotoxic antibody-drug conjugate derived therefrom controlled by GSK, including but not limited to belantamab mafodotin-blmf) (collectively, the “GSK BCMA Products”) and nirogacestat (“Nirogacestat”), either alone together as a combination therapy, or together with additional pharmaceutical agents (the “Combination Regimen”) and (2) to commercialize GSK BCMA Products as part of the applicable Combination Regimen in the Field worldwide. Field in the previous sentence refers to the prevention, treatment and prophylaxis of multiple myeloma and other BCMA-expressing malignancies and diseases. Nothing in the License Agreement requires the Company to convey any rights to intellectual property relevant to the use of Nirogacestat with any compound or substance other than as part of a Combination Regimen.
Pursuant to the License Agreement, GSK will make an equity investment of $75 million in the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, pursuant to a stock purchase agreement between the Company and an affiliate of GSK as described below. The Company will also be eligible to receive up to $550 million upon the occurrence of certain development and commercial milestone events as set forth in the License Agreement. The Company will retain full commercial rights to nirogacestat and will be responsible for global commercialization of nirogacestat.

Stock Purchase Agreement
Concurrently with the execution of the License Agreement, on September 6, 2022, the Company entered into a stock purchase agreement (the “Stock Purchase Agreement”) with an affiliate of GSK, Glaxo Group Limited (“GGL”), pursuant to which GGL has agreed to purchase from the Company 2,050,819 shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, in a private placement transaction for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $75 million or $36.57 per share. The purchase price per Share represented a 25% premium to the 30-day volume weighted average closing price for the Company’s common stock, calculated as of the day immediately prior to the execution date of the Stock Purchase Agreement. The purchase of the Shares is expected to close on or about September 9, 2022, subject to customary closing conditions.
Pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement, subject to certain exceptions, GGL may not sell the Shares without the Company’s approval for a certain period following the closing date of the transactions contemplated therein. In addition, the Stock Purchase Agreement contains a standstill provision and customary representations, warranties, and covenants of each of the Company and GGL.

All requisite action on the part of the Purchaser and its directors and stockholders, required by applicable Law for the authorization, execution and delivery by the Purchaser of this Agreement, and the performance of all of its obligations thereunder, including the subscription for and purchase of the Shares, has been taken. This Agreement has been duly executed and delivered by the Purchaser and upon the due execution and delivery thereof by the Company, will constitute a valid and legally binding obligation of the Purchaser, enforceable against the Purchaser in accordance with its terms (except as such enforceability may be limited by (i) applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other Laws of general application relating to or affecting enforcement of creditors’ rights and (ii) rules of Law governing specific performance, injunctive relief or other equitable remedies and limitations of public policy).
5.3 No Conflicts. The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement, and compliance with the provisions thereof, by the Purchaser do not and shall not: (a) violate any provision of applicable Law or any ruling, writ, injunction, order, permit, judgment or decree of any Governmental Authority, (b) constitute a breach of, or default under (or an event which, with notice or lapse of time or both, would become a default under) or conflict with, or give rise to any right of termination, cancellation or acceleration of, any agreement, arrangement or instrument, whether written or oral, by which the Purchaser or any of its assets, are bound, or (c) violate or conflict with any of the provisions of the Purchaser’s organizational documents (including any articles or memoranda of organization or association, charter, bylaws or similar documents), except as would not impair or adversely affect the ability of the Purchaser to consummate the Transaction and perform its obligations under this Agreement.
5.4 No Governmental Authority or Third Party Consents. No consent, approval, authorization or other order of any Governmental Authority or other Third Party is required to be obtained by the Purchaser in connection with the authorization, execution and delivery of this Agreement, or with the subscription for and purchase of the Shares.
5.5 Purchase Entirely for Own Account. The Shares shall be acquired for investment for the Purchaser’s own account, not as a nominee or agent, and not with a view to the resale or distribution of any part thereof, and the Purchaser has no present intention of selling, granting any participation or otherwise distributing the Shares. The Purchaser does not have and will not have as of the Closing any contract, undertaking, agreement or arrangement with any Person to sell, transfer or grant participation to a Person any of the Shares.
5.6 Disclosure of Information. The Purchaser has received all the information from the Company and its management that the Purchaser considers necessary or appropriate for deciding whether to purchase the Shares hereunder. The Purchaser further represents that it has had an opportunity to ask questions and receive answers from the Company regarding the Company, its financial condition, results of operations and prospects and the terms and conditions of the offering of the Shares sufficient to enable it to evaluate its investment.
5.7 Investment Experience and Accredited Purchaser Status. The Purchaser is an “accredited investor” (as defined in Regulation D under the Securities Act). The Purchaser has such knowledge and experience in financial or business matters that it is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the investment in the Shares to be purchased hereunder.
5.8 Acquiring Person. As of the date of this Agreement and immediately prior to the Closing, neither the Purchaser nor any of its Affiliates beneficially owns, or will beneficially own (as determined pursuant to Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act without regard for the number of days in which a Person has the right to acquire such beneficial ownership, and without regard to Purchaser’s rights under this Agreement), any securities of the Company, except for securities that were purchased directly from the Company or that may be owned by employee benefit plans of the Purchaser or its Affiliates in the ordinary course of business.
5.9 Restricted Securities. The Purchaser understands that the Shares, when issued, will be “restricted securities” under the federal securities Laws inasmuch as they are being acquired from the Company in a transaction not involving a public offering and that under such Laws the Shares may be resold without registration under the Securities Act only in certain limited circumstances. The Purchaser represents that it is familiar with Rule 144 of the Securities Act, as presently in effect.
5.10 Legends. The Purchaser understands that any certificates or book-entries representing the Shares shall bear the following legends:
“These securities have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933. They may not be sold, offered for sale, pledged or hypothecated in the absence of a registration statement in effect with respect to the securities under the Securities Act or an opinion of counsel (which counsel shall be reasonably satisfactory to SpringWorks Therapeutics, Inc.) that such registration is not required or unless sold pursuant to Rule 144 of the Securities Act.”; and any legend required by applicable state securities Laws.
5.11 Financial Assurances. As of the date hereof and as of the Closing Date, the Purchaser has and will have access to cash in an amount sufficient to pay to the Company the Aggregate Purchase Price.

6.1 Representations and Warranties. The representations and warranties made by the Company in Section 4 hereof shall be true and correct as of the date of this Agreement and as of the Closing Date as though made on and as of such Closing Date, except to the extent such representations and warranties are specifically made as of a particular date, in which case such representations and warranties shall be true and correct as of such date; provided, however, that for purposes of this Section 6.1, all such representations and warranties of the Company (other than Sections 4.1(a), 4.2, 4.3, 4.4, 4.5(a), 4.6(d), 4.8, 4.10 of this Agreement) shall be deemed to be true and correct for purposes of this Section 6.1 unless the failure or failures of such representations and warranties to be so true and correct, without regard to any “material,” “materiality” or “Material Adverse Effect” qualifiers set forth therein, individually or in the aggregate, has had or would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.
6.2 Covenants. All covenants and agreements contained in this Agreement to be performed or complied with by the Company on or prior to the Closing Date shall have been performed or complied with in all material respects.

8.2 No Prohibition. (a) No provision of any applicable Law and no judgment, injunction (preliminary or permanent), order or decree that prohibits, makes illegal or enjoins the consummation of the Transaction shall be in effect; and (b) the Common Stock shall be eligible for listing on the Nasdaq Global Select Market.

(a) mutual written consent of the Company and the Purchaser;
(b) either the Company or the Purchaser, upon written notice to the other, if any of the mutual conditions to the Closing set forth in Section 8 shall have become incapable of fulfillment by the Termination Date and shall not have been waived in writing by the other party; provided, however, that the right to terminate this Agreement under this Section 9.1(b) shall not be available to any party whose failure to fulfill any obligation under this Agreement has been the cause of, or resulted in, the failure to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby prior to the Termination Date;
(c) the Company, upon written notice to the Purchaser, so long as the Company is not then in breach of its representations, warranties, covenants or agreements under this Agreement such that any of the conditions set forth in Section 7.1 or 7.2, as applicable, could not be satisfied by the Termination Date, (i) upon a breach of any covenant or agreement on the part of the Purchaser set forth in this Agreement, or (ii) if any representation or warranty of the Purchaser shall have been or become untrue, in each case such that any of the conditions set forth in Section 7.1 or 7.2, as applicable, could not be satisfied by the Termination Date;
(d) the Purchaser, upon written notice to the Company, so long as the Purchaser is not then in breach of its representations, warranties, covenants or agreements under this Agreement such that any of the conditions set forth in Section 6.1 or 6.2, as applicable, could not be satisfied by the Termination Date, (i) upon a breach of any covenant or agreement on the part of the Company set forth in this Agreement, or (ii) if any representation or warranty of the Company shall have been or become untrue, in each case such that any of the conditions set forth in Section 6.1 or 6.2, as applicable, could not be satisfied by the Termination Date.
9.2 Effect of Termination. In the event of the termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 9.1 hereof, (a) this Agreement (except for this Section 9.2 and Section 11 hereof (other than Section 11.13), and any definitions set forth in this Agreement and used in such sections) shall forthwith become void and have no effect, without any liability on the part of any party hereto or its Affiliates, and (b) all filings, applications and other submissions made pursuant to this Agreement, to the extent practicable, shall be withdrawn from the agency or other Person to which they were made or appropriately amended to reflect the termination of the transactions contemplated hereby; provided, however, that nothing contained in this Section 9.2 shall relieve any party from liability for fraud or any intentional or willful breach of this Agreement.
10. Additional Covenants and Agreements.
10.1 Standstill. (a) Purchaser hereby acknowledges that, unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Company, for a period of twelve (12) months from the date hereof (the “Standstill Period”), neither the Purchaser nor any of its Affiliates who are provided with Confidential Information (as defined in that Mutual Confidential Disclosure Agreement by and between the parties effective as of June 24, 2021), will, directly or indirectly, (i) propose any merger, consolidation, business combination, tender or exchange offer, purchase of the Company’ assets or businesses, or similar transactions involving the Company, or any recapitalization, restructuring, liquidation or other extraordinary transaction with respect to the Company; (ii) propose or seek, whether alone or in concert with others, any “solicitation” (as such term is used in the rules of the SEC) of proxies or consents to vote any securities (including a Derivative) of the Company; (iii) nominate any person as a director of the Company; (iv) propose any matter to be voted upon by the stockholders of the Company; (v) acquire or propose or seek to acquire beneficial ownership of any securities (including in derivative form) of the Company; (vi) directly or indirectly, form, join or in any way participate in a third party “group” (as such term is used in the rules of the SEC) (or discuss with any Third Party the potential formation of a group) with respect to any securities (including in derivative form) of the Company; or (vii) request that the Company (or any of its officers, directors or representatives), directly or through any representative, to amend or waive any provision of this Section 10.1 (including this sentence) (the restrictions set forth in foregoing clauses (i) through (vii), the “Standstill Restrictions”); provided, however, that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section, prior to the expiration or termination of the Standstill Period, Purchaser and its affiliates (x) may request (but only privately to the Board or the Chief Executive Officer of the Company and not publicly or otherwise in a manner that could reasonably be expected to require public disclosure of such request by either the Company or Purchaser) an amendment or waiver of, consent under or agreement not to enforce, the Standstill Restrictions and (y) may make confidential proposals or offers to the Company or the Board with respect to a potential transaction between the Company and Purchaser provided that such proposals or offers are not made in a manner that could reasonably be expected to require public disclosure of such request by either the Company or Purchaser; provided, further, that the restrictions set forth in this Section shall terminate (A) immediately upon the public announcement by the Company that it has entered into a definitive agreement with a Third Party for a transaction involving the acquisition (by way of merger, tender offer or otherwise) of more than 50% of the outstanding capital stock of the Company or 50% or more of the assets (on a consolidated basis) of the Company or (B) if any Third Party commences a tender or exchange offer that, if consummated, would result in 50% or more of the outstanding capital stock of the Company being owned by such person or group and the Board accepts (or recommends that its stockholders accept) such offer or fails to recommend within ten (10) Business Days from the date of commencement of such offer that its stockholders reject such offer.
(b) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the restrictions set forth in this Section shall not apply to (i) any passive investment in any securities of the Company by or behalf of any pension, employee benefit plan or trust of Purchaser or any of its Affiliates, including without limitation any investment in any diversified index, mutual or pension fund managed by an independent advisor, which fund in-turn holds, directly or indirectly, securities of the Company, or (ii) securities of the Company held, directly or indirectly, by a person acquired by Purchaser or any of its Affiliates after the date hereof; provided that in each case with respect to the foregoing clauses (i) and (ii) such investment or acquisition was not designed to circumvent the Standstill Restrictions.

During the period commencing on the Closing Date and ending on the twelve (12) month anniversary of the Closing Date (the “Lock-Up Period”), without the prior approval of the Board of Directors of the Company, the Purchaser shall not (i) offer, pledge, sell, contract to sell, sell any option or contract to purchase, purchase any option or contract to sell, grant any option, right or warrant for the sale of, or otherwise dispose of or transfer any of the Shares (together with (a) any shares of Common Stock issued in respect thereof as a result of any stock split, stock dividend, share exchange, merger, consolidation or similar recapitalization and (b) any shares of Common Stock issued as (or issuable upon the exercise of any warrant, right or other security that is issued as) a dividend or other distribution with respect to, or in exchange or in replacement of, the Shares) (the “Lock-Up Securities”), including, without limitation, any “short sale” or similar arrangement, or (ii) enter into any swap or any other agreement or any transaction that transfers, in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, the economic consequence of ownership of the Shares, whether any such swap or transaction is to be settled by delivery of securities, in cash or otherwise; provided, however, that the foregoing shall not prohibit the Purchaser or its Affiliates from transferring Lock-Up Securities to an Affiliate of the Purchaser if such transferee Affiliate executes an agreement with the Company to be bound by the restrictions set forth in Sections 10.1 and 10.2. Notwithstanding any other provision herein, this Section 10.2 shall not prohibit or restrict any disposition of Lock-Up Securities by the Purchaser in connection with (1) a bona fide tender offer by a Person other than the Purchaser involving a Change of Control of the Company (as defined below), which has not been rejected by the Company’s Board of Directors, (2) an issuer tender offer by the Company, or (3) the Company’s public announcement of a definitive agreement to consummate an Acquisition Transaction. For the purposes of this Agreement, a “Change of Control” means the transfer, in one transaction or a series of related transactions, as a result of which any Person or group of Persons, other than the Company, becomes the beneficial owner (as defined in Rules 13d-3 and 13d-5 of the Exchange Act) of more than 50% of total voting power of the voting securities of the Company.

10.5 Effect of Waiver of Condition to Closing. In the event that, as of the Closing, the Purchaser waives the condition regarding a Material Adverse Effect set forth in Section 6.3 of this Agreement, the Purchaser shall be deemed to have waived any right of recourse against the Company for, and agreed not to sue the Company in respect of, any and all events or inaccuracies in any representations or warranties of the Company (a) that, as of the Closing, have caused or would reasonably be expected to cause such Material Adverse Effect and (b) of which the Purchaser had notice in writing from the Company immediately prior to the Closing.
11.1 Governing Law; Submission to Jurisdiction.

No waiver shall be effective unless made in writing with specific reference to the relevant provision(s) of this Agreement and signed by a duly authorized representative of the party granting the waiver.
11.3 Notices. All notices, instructions and other communications hereunder or in connection herewith shall be in writing, shall be sent to the address of the relevant party set forth on Exhibit B attached hereto, or at such other address as such party may designate by ten days’ advance written notice to the other party, and shall be deemed effectively given: (i) upon personal delivery to the party to be notified; (ii) when sent by confirmed e-mail if sent during normal business hours of the recipient, and if not during normal business hours of the recipient, then on the next Business Day; (iii) five calendar days after having been sent by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid; or (iv) one Business Day after deposit with a nationally recognized overnight courier, specifying next day delivery, with written verification of receipt. Either party may change its address by giving notice to the other party in the manner provided above.
11.4 Entire Agreement. This Agreement and the License Agreement contain the entire agreement among the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and thereof and supersede all prior and contemporaneous arrangements or understandings, whether written or oral, with respect hereto and thereto.
11.5 Amendments. No provision in this Agreement shall be supplemented, deleted or amended except in a writing executed by an authorized representative of each of the Purchaser and the Company.
11.6 Headings; Nouns and Pronouns; Section References. Headings in this Agreement are for convenience of reference only and shall not be considered in construing this Agreement. Whenever the context may require, any pronouns used herein shall include the corresponding masculine, feminine or neuter forms, and the singular form of names and pronouns shall include the plural and vice-versa. References in this Agreement to a section or subsection shall be deemed to refer to a section or subsection of this Agreement unless otherwise expressly stated.
11.7 Severability. If, under applicable Laws, any provision hereof is invalid or unenforceable, or otherwise directly or indirectly affects the validity of any other material provision(s) of this Agreement in any jurisdiction (“Modified Clause”), then, it is mutually agreed that this Agreement shall endure and that the Modified Clause shall be enforced in such jurisdiction to the maximum extent permitted under applicable Laws in such jurisdiction; provided that the parties shall consult and use all reasonable efforts to agree upon, and hereby consent to, any valid and enforceable modification of this Agreement as may be necessary to avoid any unjust enrichment of either party and to match the intent of this Agreement as closely as possible, including the economic benefits and rights contemplated herein.
11.8 Assignment. Except for an assignment by the Purchaser of this Agreement or any rights hereunder to an Affiliate (which assignment will not relieve the Purchaser of any obligation hereunder), neither this Agreement nor any of the rights or obligations hereunder may be assigned by either the Purchaser or the Company without (a) the prior written consent of the Company in the case of any assignment by the Purchaser or (b) the prior written consent of the Purchaser in the case of an assignment by the Company.
11.9 Successors and Assigns. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
11.10 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original but which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.
11.11 Third Party Beneficiaries. None of the provisions of this Agreement shall be for the benefit of or enforceable by any Third Party, including any creditor of any party hereto, except that each Affiliate of the Purchaser is an express third party beneficiary entitled to enforce this agreement directly against the Company. No Third Party shall obtain any right under any provision of this Agreement or shall by reason of any such provision make any claim in respect of any debt, liability or obligation (or otherwise) against any party hereto.
11.12 No Strict Construction. This Agreement has been prepared jointly and will not be construed against either party.
11.13 Survival of Warranties. The representations and warranties of the Company and the Purchaser contained in this Agreement shall survive the Closing for eighteen (18) months, except for (a) the representations and warranties set forth in Sections 4.1, 4.2, 4.4, 4.5(a), 4.6(d), 4.8, 4.12, 4.13, 4.14, 5.1, 5.2, 5.3(c), 5.5, 5.7, 5.8, 5.9 and 5.10, which shall survive forever and (b) the representation and warranty of the Purchaser in Section 5.11, which shall not survive the Closing. The parties hereby acknowledge and agree that the rights of the parties hereunder are special, unique and of extraordinary character, and that if any party refuses or otherwise fails to act, or to cause its Affiliates to act, in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, such refusal or failure would result in irreparable injury to the Company or the Purchaser as the case may be, the exact amount of which would be difficult to ascertain or estimate and the remedies at law for which would not be reasonable or adequate compensation. Accordingly, if any party refuses or otherwise fails to act, or to cause its Affiliates to act, in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, then, in addition to any other remedy which may be available to any damaged party at law or in equity, such damaged party will be entitled to seek specific performance and injunctive relief, without posting bond or other security, and without the necessity of proving actual or threatened damages, which remedy such damaged party will be entitled to seek in any court of competent jurisdiction.
11.14 Remedies. The rights, powers and remedies of the parties under this Agreement are cumulative and not exclusive of any other right, power or remedy which such parties may have under any other agreement or Law. No single or partial assertion or exercise of any right, power or remedy of a party hereunder shall preclude any other or further assertion or exercise thereof.
11.15 Expenses. Each party shall pay its own fees and expenses in connection with the preparation, negotiation, execution and delivery of the Transaction Agreements.
11.16 Public Announcement The parties agree that the initial press release by the Company, and the SEC filing on Form 8-K by the Company, each disclosing the execution and delivery of the Transaction Agreements and the transactions contemplated thereby, shall be in the form attached to the License Agreement and the form attached hereto as Exhibit C, respectively (collectively, the “Agreed Disclosures”). Each of the parties agrees that, other than the Agreed Disclosures or as permitted by the immediately succeeding sentence, and except as may be required by law, rule, regulation or the requirements of any self-regulatory organization or stock exchange listing requirements (in which case the party required to make the filing, disclosure, communication, release or announcement shall allow the other party reasonable time to comment thereon in advance of such statement, release, filing, disclosure, communication or announcement and will consider in good faith any comments provided by such party), each of the parties hereto will not make any public statement, press release or other public filing, disclosure, communication, release, or announcement with respect to this Agreement and any of the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Agreements; provided, that nothing herein shall limit or prevent a party from making any statements, press releases or other filings, disclosures, communications, releases or announcements to the extent reasonably related to such party exercising or enforcing any of its rights under this Agreement.
