Item 2.01

Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

Following the expiration of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended, on December 20, 2021, Mirum Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”) completed the sale (the “Asset Sale”) to Janssen Biotech, Inc. (“Buyer”), an affiliate of Johnson & Johnson, of its Rare Pediatric Disease Priority Review Voucher (“PRV”). The Company was awarded the PRV by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on September 29, 2021 in connection with the approval of LIVMARLI (maralixibat) oral solution for the treatment of cholestatic pruritus in patients with Alagille syndrome (ALGS) one year of age and older. The Asset Sale was pursuant to the terms of an Asset Purchase Agreement, dated November 16, 2021 (the “Agreement”), the material terms of which were previously disclosed by the Company in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 19, 2021 (the “Prior 8-K”). Pursuant to the Agreement, Buyer paid the Company $110.0 million upon the closing of the Asset Sale.

The foregoing description of the material terms of the Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Agreement, a copy of which was filed as Exhibit 10.1 to the Prior 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
