Forward-Looking Statements

This presentation has been prepared by Dicerna Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("we," "us," "our," "Dicerna," or the "Company") and includes forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in such statements. Examples of forward-looking statements include, among others, statements we make regarding: (i) the therapeutic and commercial potential of nedosiran as well as those of RG6346, belcesiran (formerly DCR-A1AT),DCR-AUD and our GalXC™ and GalXC Plus™ RNAi technology; (ii) our research and development plans and timelines for nedosiran as well as those for RG6346, belcesiran, DCR-AUD, GalXC and GalXC-Plus; (iii) our regulatory pathways, plans and timelines for nedosiran as well as those for RG6346, belcesiran, DCR-AUD, GalXC and GalXC-Plus; (iv) the Company's strategy, business plans and focus; (v) the Company's expectations about our cash, cash equivalents and held-to-maturity investments; (vi) the potential of Dicerna's technology and drug candidates, including our pipeline expansion efforts and expectations; and (vii) the Company's collaborations with Novo Nordisk A/S; Roche; Eli Lilly and Company; Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc.; Boehringer Ingelheim International GmbH; and Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc. The process by which an early-stage investigational therapy such as nedosiran and an early-stage platform such as GalXC could potentially lead to an approved product is long and subject to significant risks. Applicable risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, those risks identified under the heading "Risk Factors" included in the Company's most recent Form 10-K filing and in subsequent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. These risks and uncertainties include, among others, the potential for additional or future data to alter initial, interim and preliminary results of clinical trials; positive data from preclinical studies and earlier clinical trials may not be predictive of results from subsequent preclinical studies and clinical trials; the results of clinical trials may produce negative, inconclusive or uncompetitive results; possible safety, efficacy concerns could emerge as new data are generated in R&D and/or clinical trials; the impact to, and potential for delays in, the current and future conduct of the business of the Company, its clinical programs and operations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic; the cost, timing and results of preclinical studies and clinical trials and other development activities; the likelihood of Dicerna's clinical programs being executed within timelines provided; our reliance on the Company's contract research and manufacturing organizations; the unpredictability of timely enrollment of subjects and patients to advance Dicerna's clinical trials; the unpredictability of the duration and results of the regulatory review of Investigational New Drug (IND) applications and Clinical Trial Applications (CTAs) necessary to continue to advance and progress the Company's clinical programs and the regulatory review of submissions relevant to regulatory agencies for marketing approvals, including New Drug Applications (NDAs); market acceptance for approved products and innovative therapeutic treatments; competition; the possible impairment of, inability to obtain and costs of obtaining needed intellectual property rights; that the Company may not realize the intended benefits of its collaborations; general business, financial and accounting risks; and the risks and potential outcomes from litigation.
