This Amendment No. 3 (this “Amendment”) amends and supplements the Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on February 22, 2019 (the “February Schedule 13D”), as previously amended on December 11, 2019 (“Amendment No. 1”) and June 1, 2020 (“Amendment No. 2,” and together the February Schedule 13D and Amendment No. 1, the “Original Schedule 13D”) by the Reporting Persons relating to the shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”) of Harpoon Therapeutics, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer”).

Information reported in the Original Schedule 13D remains in effect except to the extent that it is amended, restated or superseded by information contained in this Amendment. Capitalized terms used but not defined in this Amendment have the respective meanings set forth in the Original Schedule 13D.

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction

Item 4 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended to add the following paragraph:

This Amendment No. 3 is being filed to update the aggregate percentage of Common Stock of the Issuer owned by the Reporting Person primarily due to changes caused by the issuance of additional Common Stock by the Issuer since the date of Amendment No. 2. Such transaction resulted in a decrease of over one percent (1%) in the aggregate percentage ownership reported by the Reporting Persons in the Schedule 13D.

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer

Item 5 of the Original Schedule 13D is hereby amended by amending and replacing in their entirety the first paragraph of Item 5 and Item 5(c) as follows:

The information reported below is based on 32,031,307 shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock outstanding as of January 11, 2021, as disclosed in, and derived from the Issuer’s (i) final prospectus dated January 6, 2021, filed with the Commission on January 7, 2021 (the “Prospectus”) and (ii) Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the Commission on January 11, 2021 (the “Form 8-K,” and collectively with the Prospectus, the “January Offering Documents”). This Amendment No. 3 is being filed to update the aggregate percentage of Common Stock of the Issuer owned by the Reporting Persons primarily due to changes caused by the issuance of additional Common Stock by the Issuer since the date of Amendment No. 2. Such transaction resulted in a decrease of over one percent (1%) in the aggregate percentage ownership reported by the Reporting Persons in the Schedule 13D.

(c) On December 11, 2020, the Reporting Persons acquired 14,961 shares of Common Stock in open market transactions at a price of $12.65 per share.

Except as set forth above, the Reporting Persons have not effected any transaction in the Common Stock of the Issuer during the past 60 days.
