This Amendment No. 1 (the “Amendment”) amends and supplements the Schedule 13D filed by the Reporting Persons on November 14, 2016 (the “Original Schedule 13D” and, as amended and supplemented by this Amendment, the “Schedule 13D”), with respect to the common stock (“Common Stock”) of Albireo Pharma, Inc. (the “Issuer”). Capitalized terms used in this Amendment and not otherwise defined shall have the same meanings ascribed to them in the Original Schedule 13D.

Item 2. Identity and Background.

This Amendment amends and restates the second paragraph of Item 2 of the Original Schedule 13D in its entirety as set forth below:

“Group Advisors is the sole member of TPG Group Holdings (SBS) Advisors, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, which is the general partner of TPG Group Holdings (SBS), L.P., a Delaware limited partnership, which is the sole member of TPG Holdings I-A, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, which is the general partner of TPG Holdings I, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership, which is the sole member of TPG Biotechnology GenPar II Advisors, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, which is the general partner of TPG Biotechnology GenPar II L.P., a Delaware limited partnership, which is the general partner of each of (i) TPG Biotechnology Partners II, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“TPG Biotech II”), which directly holds 414,448 shares of Common Stock, and (ii) TPG Biotech II Reinvest AIV, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“TPG Biotech II Reinvest” and, together with TPG Biotech II, the “TPG Funds”), which directly holds 151,933 shares of Common Stock. Because of Group Advisors’ relationship to the TPG Funds, Group Advisors may be deemed to beneficially own the shares of Common Stock held by the TPG Funds.”

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.

This Amendment amends and supplements Item 4 of the Original Schedule 13D by adding the following after the paragraph titled “Board of Directors”:

October 2019 Sale

On October 28, 2019, the TPG Funds sold an aggregate of 150,000 shares of Common Stock at a price per share (net of commission) of $17.86 (the “October 2019 Sale”).”

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

This Amendment amends and restates the second and third paragraphs of Item 5 of the Original Schedule 13D in their entirety as set forth below:

“(a)-(b) The following sentence assumes that there is a total of 12,685,326 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of August 1, 2019, as reported in the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed by the Issuer with the Commission on August 8, 2019.

Pursuant to Rule 13d-3 under the Act, the Reporting Persons may be deemed to beneficially own 566,381 shares of Common Stock, which constitutes approximately 4.5% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock.”

This Amendment amends and restates the sixth paragraph of Item 5 of the Original Schedule 13D in its entirety as set forth below:

“(e) As a result of the October 2019 Sale, on October 28, 2019 the Reporting Persons ceased to be the beneficial owner of more than five percent of the shares of Common Stock.”
