On January 10, 2020, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of Mirum Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”) approved the 2019 bonus awards for the Company’s named executive officers. The named executive officers’ other compensation for 2019 was previously reported by the Company in the Summary Compensation Table included in the Company’s prospectus, dated January 8, 2020 (the “Prospectus”), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b)(4) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, relating to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-235825). As of the date of the Prospectus, bonuses for the named executive officers had not been determined and, therefore, were omitted from the Summary Compensation Table.

Mr. Grey served as the Company’s Chief Executive Officer until March 2019 and as the Company’s Executive Chairman until December 2019.


Amounts for 2019 represent bonuses awarded on January 10, 2020 in recognition of 2019 performance.


Amounts shown in this column do not reflect dollar amounts actually received by the Company’s named executive officers.
