EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

Rubius Therapeutics, Inc. is filing this Amendment No. 1 to its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2020 (“Amendment No. 1”) as an exhibit-only filing solely to re-file Exhibits 31.1 and 31.2 to include a portion of the text required in paragraph 4 of the Section 302 certifications (specifically, a portion of the introductory language of paragraph 4), which was inadvertently omitted from the Section 302 certifications included with the original Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 10, 2020. Because no financial statements have been included in this Amendment No. 1, paragraph 3 of the Section 302 certifications has been omitted.

 

This Amendment No. 1 does not reflect events occurring after the filing of the original Form 10-Q and, other than the re-filing of the referenced certifications, does not modify or update the disclosures in the original Form 10-Q in any way. Accordingly, this Amendment No. 1 should be read in conjunction with the original Form 10-Q and our other filings made with the SEC subsequent to the filing of the original Form 10-Q.
