Consists of 1,892,009 additional shares issuable under the 2020 Stock Option and Incentive Plan (the “2020 Plan”), which represents the automatic annual increase to the number of shares available for issuance under the 2020 Plan effective as of January 1, 2021. Shares available for issuance under the 2020 Plan were previously registered on registration statement on Form S-8 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 23, 2020 (File No. 333-239369).

(3)

Estimated solely for the purpose of calculating the registration fee pursuant to Rules 457(c) and 457(h) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

The price of $22.04 per share, which is 85% of the average of the high and low sale prices of the Common Stock of the Registrant as quoted on the Nasdaq Global Market on March 26, 2021, is set forth solely for purposes of calculating the registration fee pursuant to Rules 457(c) and (h) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and has been used as these shares are without a fixed price. Pursuant to the 2020 ESPP, the purchase price of the shares of Common Stock reserved for issuance thereunder will be 85% of the fair market value of a share of Common Stock on the first trading day of the offering period or on the exercise date, whichever is less.

Re:

Securities Being Registered under Registration Statement on Form S-8

We have acted as counsel to you in connection with your filing of a Registration Statement on Form S-8 (the “Registration Statement”) pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), on or about the date hereof relating to an aggregate of 2,364,496 shares (the “Shares”) of Common Stock, $0.001 par value per share (“Common Stock”), of Forma Therapeutics Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), that may be issued pursuant to the Company’s 2020 Stock Option and Incentive Plan and 2020 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (collectively, the “Plans”).

We have reviewed such documents and made such examination of law as we have deemed appropriate to give the opinions set forth below. We have relied, without independent verification, on certificates of public officials and, as to matters of fact material to the opinion set forth below, on certificates of officers of the Company.

The opinion set forth below is limited to the Delaware General Corporation Law.

For purposes of the opinion set forth below, we have assumed that no event occurs that causes the number of authorized shares of Common Stock available for issuance by the Company to be less than the number of then unissued Shares.

Based on the foregoing, we are of the opinion that the Shares have been duly authorized and, upon issuance and delivery against payment therefor in accordance with the terms of the Plans, will be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable.

We hereby consent to the inclusion of this opinion as Exhibit 5.1 to the Registration Statement. In giving our consent, we do not admit that we are in the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Securities Act or the rules and regulations thereunder.

 

Very truly yours,
/s/ Goodwin Procter LLP
GOODWIN PROCTER LLP

Exhibit 23.1
