Forward-Looking Statements

This Form 8-K and the exhibit attached hereto contain forward-looking statements of AVEO Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“AVEO” or the “Company”) that involve substantial risks and uncertainties. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, contained in this Form 8-K and the exhibit attached hereto, are forward-looking statements. The words “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “predict,” “project,” “target,” “potential,” “will,” “would,” “could,” “should,” “continue,” “contemplate,” or the negative of these terms or other similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. These forward-looking statements include, among others, statements about: the Company’s planned development, commercialization and manufacturing plans, timelines and strategies for tivozanib; the potential therapeutic advantages and benefits of tivozanib and the Company’s other product candidates; the timing and results of the Company’s ongoing and planned preclinical studies and clinical trials; the potential benefits of the Company’s strategic partnership agreements, its ability to achieve additional payments under these arrangements and its ability to enter into additional arrangements; the Company’s plans to leverage its Human Response Platform™ to inform clinical development; its intellectual property position and strategies; the expected RCC market and potential of tivozanib to obtain regulatory approval and enter this market; the Company’s projections with respect to its achievement of corporate milestones, including its anticipated plans for success in the oncology markets; and the Company having sufficient capital to fund its operations through 2013 and the Company’s estimates for its 2012 expected year-end cash balance and cost savings from its strategic restructuring.

Actual results or events could differ materially from the plans, intentions and expectations disclosed in the forward-looking statements that the Company makes due to a number of important factors, including risks and uncertainties inherent in pharmaceutical research and development, such as those related to: the Company’s ability to successfully develop, test and gain approval of its product candidates, including regulatory approval of tivozanib to treat advanced RCC; the Company’s ability to obtain, maintain and enforce intellectual property rights; competition; the Company’s dependence on its alliance partners and other third parties; the Company’s ability to obtain necessary financing; adverse economic conditions; and other risk factors discussed in the “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in its most recent Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and its other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements because they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that are, in some cases, beyond the Company’s control and that could materially affect actual results, performance or achievements. The forward-looking statements in this Form 8-K and the exhibit attached hereto represent the Company’s views as of the date of this Form 8-K. The Company anticipates that subsequent events and development will cause its views to change. However, while it may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, it has no current intention of doing so except to the extent required by applicable law. You should, therefore, not rely on these forward-looking statements as representing the Company’s views as of any date subsequent to the date of this Form 8-K.

Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

Although it has not finalized its full financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2012, the Company will announce during the 31st Annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference, which begins on January 7, 2013, that it expects to report that it had approximately $160,000,000 in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities as of December 31, 2012.

The audit of the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2012 is ongoing and could result in changes to the information set forth above. The Company anticipates making a public announcement of its results of operations for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2012 on or about February 20, 2013.

The information in this Item 2.02 shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
