        This proxy statement is available for viewing, printing and downloading at http://ir.momentapharma.com/financial-information/annuals-and-proxies.

Momenta's Voting Securities

        Holders of record of our common stock at the close of business on Friday, December 21, 2018, will be entitled to notice of, and to vote at, the Special Meeting or any postponement, continuation or adjournment of the Special Meeting. On that date, [    ·    ] shares of our common stock were issued and outstanding. Each share of common stock entitles the holder thereof to one vote with respect to all matters submitted to stockholders at the Special Meeting. We have no other securities entitled to vote at the Special Meeting.

Voting Your Shares

        If you are the record holder of your shares, you may vote in one of four ways. You may vote by submitting your proxy over the Internet, by telephone, or by mail or you may vote in person at the Special Meeting. A 16 digit control number that is provided on the enclosed proxy card is needed for voting over the telephone or Internet.

        You may vote over the Internet.    If you have Internet access, you may vote your shares from any location in the world by following the "Vote by Internet" instructions set forth on the enclosed proxy card.

Table of Contents

        You may vote by telephone.    You may vote your shares by following the "Vote by Phone" instructions set forth on the enclosed proxy card.

        You may vote by mail.    You may vote by completing, dating and signing the proxy card that accompanies this proxy statement and promptly mailing it in the enclosed postage-prepaid envelope. You do not need to put a stamp on the enclosed envelope if you mail it in the United States.

        You may vote in person.    If you attend the Special Meeting, you may vote by delivering your completed proxy card in person or you may vote by completing a ballot. Ballots will be available at the meeting.

        If the shares you own are held in your bank or brokerage firm account in a fiduciary capacity (typically referred to as being held in "street name"), you can vote by following the directions provided to you by your bank or brokerage firm. If the shares you own are held in street name and you wish to vote in person at the Special Meeting, you must obtain a "legal proxy" from the organization that holds your shares. A legal proxy is a written document that will authorize you to vote your shares held in street name at the Special Meeting. Please contact the organization that holds your shares for instructions on how to obtain a legal proxy. You must bring a copy of the legal proxy to the Special Meeting and present it with your ballot in order for your vote to be counted.

Your Voting Instructions

        The shares represented by all valid proxies will be voted as specified in those proxies. If the shares you own are held in your name and you return a duly executed proxy without specifying how your shares are to be voted, they will be voted as follows in accordance with the recommendations of our board of directors:

        If the shares you own are held in street name, the bank or brokerage firm, as the record holder of your shares, is required to vote your shares in accordance with your instructions. You should direct your broker how to vote the shares held in your account. Under applicable stock exchange rules, if you do not instruct your broker on how to vote your shares, your broker will be able to vote your shares with respect to both proposals to be voted on at the Special Meeting. Therefore, we do not expect any broker "non-votes" at the Special Meeting unless a broker chooses not to vote on a matter for which it has discretionary authority to vote. A broker "non-vote" occurs when a broker submits a proxy form but declines to vote on a particular matter because the broker has not received voting instructions from the beneficial owner.

Revoking Your Proxy or Changing Your Vote

        Voting over the Internet or by telephone or execution of a proxy will not in any way affect a stockholder's right to attend the Special Meeting and vote in person. A proxy may be revoked before it is used to cast a vote. If the shares you own are held in your name, you can revoke a proxy by doing one of the following:

2


Table of Contents

        Any written notice of revocation or subsequent proxy should be sent to us at the following address: Momenta Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 301 Binney Street, Cambridge, MA 02142, Attention: Alejandra Carvajal, Secretary.

        If the shares you own are held in street name, you will need to follow the directions provided to you by your bank or brokerage firm to change your vote.

Votes Required

        The presence in person or representation by proxy of the holders of a majority of the shares of common stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote at the Special Meeting is necessary to establish a quorum for the transaction of business. If a quorum is not present, the Special Meeting will be adjourned until a quorum is obtained.

        The proposal regarding the amendment of the Company's Third Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of common stock from 100,000,000 to 200,000,000 requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the outstanding stock of the Company entitled to vote. The approval of an adjournment of the Special Meeting, if necessary, to solicit additional proxies if there are not sufficient votes at the time of the Special Meeting to approve Proposal 1 requires the approval of a majority in voting power of the votes cast affirmatively or negatively by the holders entitled to vote on the proposal. The votes will be counted, tabulated and certified by a representative of Broadridge Financial Solutions, the Company's inspector of elections for the Special Meeting.

Counting of Votes

        Abstentions are included in the shares present or represented at the Special Meeting for purposes of determining whether a quorum is present. With respect to the amendment of the Company's Third Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of common stock from 100,000,000 to 200,000,000, abstentions will have the same effect as votes against the proposal. With respect to the approval of an adjournment of the Special Meeting, if necessary, to solicit additional proxies if there are not sufficient votes at the time of the Special Meeting to approve Proposal 1, abstentions will not affect the voting results. We do not expect any broker non-votes at the Special Meeting.

PROPOSAL ONE—

APPROVAL OF AN AMENDMENT OF THE COMPANY'S
THIRD AMENDED AND RESTATED CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION
TO AUTHORIZE ADDITIONAL SHARES

        Our Third Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the "Certificate of Incorporation") currently authorizes the issuance of 100,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the "Common Stock"). On December 13, 2018, our board of directors adopted a resolution to amend the Certificate of Incorporation, subject to stockholder approval, by increasing the number of authorized shares of our Common Stock to 200,000,000 shares (the "Share Increase Amendment"). The additional 100,000,000 shares of Common Stock authorized for issuance pursuant to the proposed Share Increase Amendment would be part of the existing class of Common Stock and, if and when issued, would have the same rights and privileges as the shares of Common Stock presently issued and outstanding. The holders of Common Stock are not entitled to preemptive rights or cumulative voting.

        The Share Increase Amendment will not affect the number of authorized shares of preferred stock of the Company, par value $0.01 per share (the "Preferred Stock"), which is 5,000,000 shares. Currently, there are no shares of Preferred Stock issued and outstanding.

        The following table illustrates the effect the proposed Share Increase Amendment would have on the number of shares of Common Stock available for issuance, if approved by our stockholders:

 
  As of
December 14, 2018
  Upon
Effectiveness of
Amendment
 

TOTAL AUTHORIZED SHARES OF COMMON STOCK

    100,000,000     200,000,000  

Outstanding shares of Common Stock

    98,471,521     98,471,521  

Shares of Common Stock authorized for future issuance under the Company's incentive plans

    6,168,873     6,168,873  

Shares of Common Stock authorized for future issuance under the Company's employee stock purchase plan

    1,497,040     1,497,040  

Shares of Common Stock subject to outstanding equity awards under the Company's incentive plans

    7,314,085     7,314,085  

Shares of Common Stock subject to outstanding options under the Company's employee stock purchase plan

    24,607     24,607  

TOTAL OUTSTANDING SHARES OF COMMON STOCK, SHARES OF COMMON STOCK SUBJECT TO OUTSTANDING EQUITY AWARDS AND OPTIONS, AND SHARES OF COMMON STOCK AUTHORIZED FOR FUTURE ISSUANCE UNDER THE COMPANY'S INCENTIVE AND EMPLOYEE STOCK PURCHASE PLANS

    113,476,126     113,476,126  

SHARES OF COMMON STOCK AVAILABLE FOR ISSUANCE

    (13,476,126 )   86,523,874  

        As indicated in the table above, only 1.5% of our authorized shares are not outstanding, and we do not have sufficient authorized shares available to settle all of our currently outstanding equity awards or to grant new equity awards under our incentive compensation plans up to the full number of shares available under the plans. Therefore, our board of directors believes it is in the best interests of the Company and our stockholders to increase our authorized shares of Common Stock in order to have additional shares available for use as our board of directors deems appropriate or necessary, including having shares available to settle our outstanding equity awards and to grant new equity awards using shares authorized under our incentive plans. As such, the primary purpose of the Share Increase Amendment is to provide the Company with greater flexibility with respect to managing its Common Stock in connection with such corporate purposes as may, from time to time, be considered

4


Table of Contents

advisable by our board of directors. These corporate purposes could include, without limitation, financing activities, public or private offerings, stock dividends or splits, conversions of convertible securities, issuance of options and other equity awards pursuant to our employee benefit plans, establishing a strategic relationship with a corporate partner and acquisition transactions. Having an increased number of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock would allow us to take prompt action with respect to corporate opportunities that develop, without the delay and expense of convening a special meeting of stockholders for the purpose of approving an increase in our capitalization. Our board of directors will determine whether, when and on what terms the issuance of shares of Common Stock may be warranted in connection with any of the foregoing purposes.

        Other than shares that will be reserved for issuance under our existing incentive plans and employee stock purchase plan, we do not currently have any other arrangements, agreements or understandings that would require the issuance of additional shares of Common Stock. Because our directors and executive officers have outstanding equity awards under our incentive plans, and may be granted additional equity awards under these plans, they may be deemed to have an indirect interest in the Share Increase Amendment, because absent the amendment, the Company would not have sufficient authorized shares to settle or grant such awards.

        The Share Increase Amendment will not have any immediate effect on the rights of existing stockholders. However, our board of directors will have the authority to issue authorized Common Stock without requiring future stockholder approval of such issuances, except as may be required by applicable law or rules of the Nasdaq Stock Market. Future issuances of Common Stock or securities convertible into or exchangeable for Common Stock could have a dilutive effect on our earnings per share, book value per share and the voting power and interest of current stockholders.

        Our board has not proposed the Share Increase Amendment with the intention of discouraging tender offers or takeover attempts of the Company. However, the availability of additional authorized shares for issuance could, under certain circumstances, discourage or make more difficult efforts to obtain control of our company. This proposal is not being presented with the intent that it be used to prevent or discourage any acquisition attempt, but nothing would prevent our board from taking any appropriate actions not inconsistent with its fiduciary duties. We do not have a poison pill plan and have not made any non-shareholder approved repricings of our equity awards.

        If our stockholders approve this proposal, then the first sentence of Article FOURTH of our Certificate of Incorporation will be deleted and replaced in its entirety to read as follows:

Effect of Approval of Proposed Amendment

        If the Share Increase Amendment is approved by stockholders, all other sections of the Certificate of Incorporation would be maintained in their current form. The Share Increase Amendment would become effective upon the filing of a Certificate of Amendment to our Certificate of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, which the Company would do promptly after the Special Meeting. In the event that the Share Increase Amendment is not approved by our stockholders at the Special Meeting, the current Certificate of Incorporation would remain in effect in its entirety. Our board of directors reserves the right, notwithstanding stockholder approval of the Share Increase Amendment and without further action by our stockholders, not to proceed with the Share Increase Amendment at any time before it becomes effective.

Table of Contents

Dissenters' Rights of Appraisal

        Under Delaware law, stockholders are not entitled to appraisal rights with respect to the Share Increase Amendment, and we will not independently provide our stockholders with any such right.

Board Recommendation

        The board of directors recommends a vote FOR the approval of the amendment of the Company's Third Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of common stock of the Company from 100,000,000 to 200,000,000.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Stockholder Proposals

        Stockholders who intend to have a proposal considered for inclusion in our proxy materials for presentation at our 2019 annual meeting of stockholders pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act must submit the proposal to us at our principal executive offices, 301 Binney Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02142. Any proposal submitted pursuant to Rule 14a-8 must be received by us no later than January 2, 2019. We suggest that proponents submit their Rule 14a-8 proposals by certified mail, return receipt requested, addressed to our Secretary, Alejandra Carvajal, Esq.

        In addition, our by-laws establish an advance notice procedure with regard to director nominations and other proposals by stockholders that are not intended to be included in our proxy materials, but that a stockholder instead wishes to present directly at an annual meeting. To be properly brought before the 2019 annual meeting of stockholders, a notice of the nomination or the matter the stockholder wishes to present at the meeting must be in writing and received by our Secretary at our principal offices not later than March 22, 2019 and not before February 20, 2019. However, if the 2019 annual meeting of stockholders is advanced by more than 20 days, or delayed by more than 60 days, from June 20, 2019, notice must be received no earlier than the 120th day prior to such annual meeting and not later than the close of business on the later of (1) the 90th day prior to such annual meeting and (2) the 10th day following the date on which notice of the date of such annual meeting was mailed or public disclosure of the date of such annual meeting was made, whichever occurs first. Our by-laws also specify requirements relating to the content of the notice that stockholders must provide in order for a director nomination or other proposal to be properly presented at the 2019 annual meeting of stockholders. SEC rules permit management to vote proxies in its discretion in certain cases if the stockholder does not comply with this deadline, or, if this deadline does not apply, a deadline of the close of business on March 18, 2019, and in certain other cases notwithstanding the stockholder's compliance with these deadlines.

Householding of Proxy Materials

        The SEC has adopted rules that permit companies and intermediaries (such as banks and brokers) to satisfy the delivery requirements for proxy statements with respect to two or more stockholders sharing the same address by delivering a single proxy statement addressed to those stockholders. This process, which is commonly referred to as "householding," potentially means extra convenience for stockholders and cost savings for companies.

        A number of banks and brokers with account holders who are our stockholders will be householding our proxy materials. A single proxy statement will be delivered to multiple stockholders sharing an address unless contrary instructions have been received from the affected stockholders. Once you have received notice from your bank or broker that it will be householding communications to your address, householding will continue until you are notified otherwise or until you revoke your consent. If, at any time, you no longer wish to participate in householding and would prefer to receive a separate proxy statement, please notify your bank or broker, direct your written request to Momenta Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 301 Binney Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02142, Attention: Alejandra Carvajal, Secretary, or contact Momenta Pharmaceuticals, Inc. by telephone at (617) 491-9700 or by facsimile at (617) 621-0431. In addition, we will promptly deliver, upon written or oral request to the address or telephone number above, a separate copy of our proxy statement to a stockholder at a shared address to which a single copy of the proxy statement was delivered. Stockholders who currently receive multiple copies of the proxy statement at their address and would like to request householding of their communications should contact their bank or broker.

General

        The accompanying proxy is solicited by and on behalf of our board of directors, whose notice of meeting is attached to this proxy statement, and the entire cost of such solicitation will be borne by us.

        In addition to the use of the mails, proxies may be solicited by personal interview, telephone and email by directors, officers and other employees of Momenta who will not be specially compensated for these services. We will also request that brokers, nominees, custodians and other fiduciaries forward soliciting materials to the beneficial owners of shares held of record by such brokers, nominees, custodians and other fiduciaries. We will reimburse such persons for their reasonable expenses in connection therewith.

        We have also engaged D.F. King to assist in the solicitation of proxies and provide related advice and informational support for a services fee and the reimbursement of customary disbursements that are not expected to exceed $[    ·    ] in the aggregate.
