Statement on Schedule 13D

This Amendment No. 3 (“Amendment No. 3”) amends and supplements the statement on Schedule 13D initially filed on September 22, 2014, as amended on February 17, 2015, as further amended on May 27, 2015 (the “Original Schedule 13D”) on behalf of SGR Sagittarius Holding AG, AGUTH Holding GmbH and Dr. h.c. Klaus Tschira relating to the beneficial ownership of common shares, par value €0.01 per share (the “Common Shares”) of Affimed N.V. (formerly Affimed Therapeutics B.V.), a Dutch public company with limited liability (naamloze vennootschap) (the “Issuer”). Dr. h.c. Klaus Tschira has since passed away, and accordingly, is no longer a reporting person on this Amendment No. 3. Harald Tschira and Udo Tschira are the heirs to Dr. h.c. Klaus Tschira and are filing this Amendment No. 3 together with SGR Sagittarius Holding AG and AGUTH Holding GmbH (collectively, “the Reporting Persons”). Except as set forth below, this Amendment No. 3 does not supplement, restate or amend any of the other information disclosed in the Original Schedule 13D. Capitalized terms not defined in this Amendment No. 3 have the meanings ascribed to them in the Original Schedule 13D.

From August 21, 2015 to September 23, 2015 the Reporting Persons sold an aggregate of 169,949 Common Shares at share prices ranging from $8.00 - $10.25 as set forth in Item 5(c) below.

From June 23, 2015 to August 12, 2015, the Reporting Persons sold and transferred an aggregate of 68,904 Common Shares for the benefit of certain Beneficiaries, pursuant to the terms of the Carve-Out Agreements described in Item 6 and as set forth in Item 5(c) below.

In connection with a private placement of securities by the Issuer, the Reporting Persons entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement, dated as of October 14, 2015 (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”), pursuant to which, among other things, the Reporting Persons purchased, on the terms and conditions contained therein, 3,325,236 Common Shares at $6.55 per Common Share (the “Share Issuance”). As a result of the Share Issuance, the Issuer’s total number of outstanding Common Shares increased to 33,259,404 and the Reporting Persons’ ownership increased to 26.99%. As a result of the Share Issuance, the percentage of outstanding Common Shares that the Reporting Persons may be deemed to beneficially own increased by more than one percent of the Issuer’s Common Shares outstanding after completion of the Share Issuance.

 

ITEM 3. SOURCE AND AMOUNT OF FUND OR OTHER CONSIDERATION

Item 3 is amended by the addition of the following:

“On October 14, 2015, SGR purchased 3,325,236 Common Shares at $6.55 per share in a private placement, paying $21,780,296 in the aggregate.”

 

ITEM 5. INTEREST IN SECURITIES OF THE ISSUER.

Items 5(a) and (b) of the Original Schedule 13D are hereby amended and restated in their entirety as follows:

(a,b) Regarding aggregate beneficial ownership, see Row 11 of the cover page of each Reporting Person. Regarding percentage beneficial ownership, see Row 13 of the cover page of each Reporting Person. Regarding sole power to vote shares, see Row 7 of the cover page of each Reporting Person. Regarding shared power to vote shares, see Row 8 of the cover page of each Reporting Person. Regarding sole power to dispose of shares, see Row 9 of the cover page of each Reporting Person. Regarding shared power to dispose of shares, see Row 10 of the cover page of each Reporting Person. The percentage listed in Row 13 for each Reporting Person was calculated based upon 33,259,404 Common Shares outstanding immediately after the Share Issuance.
