Item 5.03.

Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

On June 14, 2022, Calithera Biosciences, Inc. filed a Certificate of Amendment to the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of Calithera Biosciences, Inc., or the Amendment, to effect a one-for-twenty (1:20) reverse stock split of our outstanding common stock, effective as of June 14, 2022, or the Reverse Stock Split. A series of alternate amendments to effect the Reverse Stock Split was approved by our stockholders at our Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on June 1, 2022, and the specific one-for-twenty (1:20) ratio was subsequently approved by our Board of Directors on June 8, 2022.

The Amendment provides that at the effective time of the Reverse Stock Split, every twenty shares of our issued and outstanding common stock will be automatically converted into one issued and outstanding share of common stock, without any change in par value per share. The Reverse Stock Split will affect all shares of our common stock outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the Reverse Stock Split, as well as the number of shares of common stock available for issuance under our equity incentive plans and employee stock purchase plan. In addition, the Reverse Stock Split will effect a reduction in the number of shares of common stock issuable upon the conversion of shares of our Series A convertible preferred stock and upon the exercise of stock options or warrants outstanding immediately prior to the effectiveness of the Reverse Stock Split. No fractional shares will be issued because of the Reverse Stock Split. Stockholders who would otherwise be entitled to receive a fractional share will receive a cash payment in lieu thereof.

Our common stock is scheduled to begin trading on the Nasdaq Global Select Market on a split-adjusted basis when the market opens on June 15, 2022. The new CUSIP number for our common stock following the Reverse Stock Split is 13089P 507.

The foregoing description is qualified in its entirety by the Amendment, which is attached as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

“The Company is authorized to issue two classes of stock to be designated, respectively, “Common Stock” and “Preferred Stock.” The total number of shares which the Company is authorized to issue is two hundred ten million (210,000,000) shares.

No fractional shares shall be issued and, in lieu thereof, any holder of less than one share of Common Stock shall, upon surrender after the Effective Time of a certificate, which formerly represented shares of Common Stock that were issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, be entitled to receive cash for such holder’s fractional share based upon the closing sales price of the Company’s Common Stock as reported on the Nasdaq Global Select Market on the date this Certificate of Amendment to the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of the Company is filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware.”

FOURTH: This Certificate of Amendment to the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation was submitted to the stockholders of the Company and was duly adopted and approved in accordance with the provisions of Section 242 of the General Corporate Law of the State of Delaware at the annual meeting of the stockholders of the Company.
