Morgan Securities LLC and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, as representatives of the several underwriters named in Schedule I thereto (the “Underwriters”), relating to the underwritten offering of 5,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, no par value per share (the “Common Stock”). In addition, the Company granted the Underwriters an option to purchase, at the public offering price less any underwriting discounts and commissions, an additional 750,000 shares of Common Stock, exercisable for 30 days from the date of the Underwriting Agreement (the “Option to Purchase Additional Shares”). On June 2, 2020, the Underwriters exercised the Option to Purchase Additional Shares in full to purchase 750,000 shares of Common Stock (the “Additional Shares”) at a price of $13.16 per share. The issuance and sale of the Additional Shares is expected to take place on or about June 5, 2020, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333- 238052)

Ladies and Gentlemen:

We have acted as counsel to TransMedics Group, Inc., a Massachusetts corporation (the “Company”), in connection with the issuance and sale of 750,000 shares of the common stock, no par value per share (the “Additional Shares”), of the Company pursuant to the above-referenced registration statement (the “Registration Statement”) filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Additional Shares are being sold pursuant to an underwriting agreement, dated May 26, 2020 (the “Underwriting Agreement”), among the Company and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, as representatives of the underwriters named therein, and pursuant to the exercise in full by the underwriters of their option to purchase up to an additional 750,000 shares of common stock on the terms specified in the Underwriting Agreement.

In connection with this opinion letter, we have examined such certificates, documents and records and have made such investigation of fact and such examination of law as we have deemed appropriate in order to enable us to render the opinions set forth herein. In conducting such investigation, we have relied, without independent verification, upon certificates of officers of the Company, public officials and other appropriate persons.

The opinions expressed below are limited to the Massachusetts Business Corporation Act.

Based upon and subject to the foregoing, we are of the opinion that the Additional Shares have been duly authorized and, when issued and delivered pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement against payment of the consideration set forth therein, will be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable.

We hereby consent to your filing this opinion as an exhibit to the Registration Statement and to the use of our name therein and in the related prospectus under the caption “Legal Matters.” In giving such consent, we do not thereby 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 of the Commission thereunder.

Very truly yours,

/s/ Ropes & Gray LLP
