Explanatory Note:

 

This Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13D (“Amendment No. 1”) amends and supplements the Schedule 13D initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on September 18, 2017 (the “Statement”). This Amendment No. 1 is filed on behalf of entities Longitude Venture Partners III, L.P. (“Longitude Venture III”), and Longitude Venture III’s sole general partner Longitude Capital Partners III, LLC (“Longitude Capital III”, and each of Longitude Capital III and Longitude Venture III, a “Reporting Entity”), and individuals David Hirsch, Patrick G. Enright and Juliet Tammenoms Bakker (each a “Reporting Individual,” and each Reporting Entity or Reporting Individual, a “Reporting Person”), relating to beneficial ownership of the common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), of Molecular Templates, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer”). The Reporting Persons are filing this Amendment No. 1 to report changes in their beneficial ownership since the filing of the Statement. Except as set forth below, this Amendment No. 1 does not supplement, restate or amend any of the other information disclosed in the Statement as previously filed. Capitalized terms not defined in this Amendment No. 1 have the meanings ascribed to them in the Statement as previously filed.

 

Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

 

Item 3 is amended by adding the following to the end thereof:

 

On September 21, 2018, Longitude Venture III purchased 365,000 shares of Common Stock from the Issuer as part of the Issuer’s underwritten public offering of its Common Stock (the “Offering”), for a purchase price of $5.50 per share and an aggregate purchase price of $2,007,500. All such shares were purchased by Longitude Venture III using investment funds provided to Longitude Venture III by its limited partner investors.

 

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.

 

Item 4 is amended by adding the following to the end thereof:

 

The information set forth in Item 3 of Amendment No. 1 is incorporated herein by reference.

 

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

 

Items 5(a), (b) and (c) are amended and restated in full to read as follows:

 

(a)       According to the Issuer’s prospectus supplement dated September 20, 2018 and filed with the Commission on September 24, 2018 (the “Prospectus Supplement”), immediately after giving effect to the Offering, there were 36,495,198 outstanding shares of Common Stock.

 

Longitude Venture III is the record holder of 3,261,535 shares of Common Stock and Warrants to purchase up to 1,448,267 shares of Common Stock, which represents beneficial ownership of an aggregate of 4,709,802 shares of Common Stock and approximately 12.4% of the Common Stock.

 

Longitude Capital III, as the general partner of Longitude Venture III, has the power to vote and dispose of securities held by Longitude Venture III and may be deemed to beneficially own the securities held of record by Longitude Venture III.

 

The Reporting Individuals are members of Longitude Capital III and Mr. Enright and Ms. Bakker are the managing members of Longitude Capital III. The Reporting Individuals share the decision-making power of Longitude Capital III with respect to the voting and disposition of the Issuer’s securities beneficially owned by Longitude Capital III. As a result, each of Dr. Hirsch, Mr. Enright and Ms. Bakker may be deemed to beneficially own the securities held of record by Longitude Venture III. In addition, the Reporting Individuals beneficially own 12,500 shares of Common Stock subject to stock options granted to Dr. Hirsch in his capacity as a director of the Issuer that are exercisable as of September 21, 2018 or within 60 days thereafter. As a result, each of the Reporting Individuals beneficially owns an aggregate of 4,722,302 shares of Common Stock and approximately 12.4% of the Common Stock.

 

(b)       Each of the Reporting Persons has shared power to vote and dispose of an aggregate of 4,709,802 shares of Common Stock, consisting of 3,261,535 shares of Common Stock and Warrants to purchase up to 1,448,267 shares of Common Stock. In addition, each of the Reporting Individuals has shared power to vote and dispose of an additional 12,500 shares of Common Stock subject to stock options granted to Dr. Hirsch in his capacity as a director of the Issuer that are exercisable as of September 21, 2018 or within 60 days thereafter, resulting in an aggregate of 4,722,302 shares of Common Stock.

(c)       Except as reported in this Statement, none of the Reporting Persons has effected any transactions in the Issuer’s securities within the past 60 days.
