WOCBP must not be breastfeeding, not plan to become pregnant during the study, and must use birth control
Must have confirmation of 8% liver fat content by MRI-PDFF during the Screening period
Histologic confirmation of NASH: must have had prior liver biopsy within 180 days before randomization (randomization is within 24 hours of Baseline [Day1]) with fibrosis stage F2-F3 and a NAS of 4

Exclusion Criteria

History of harmful alcohol intake for a period of more than 3 consecutive months within 1 year prior to Screening in the judgement of the Investigator
Active substance abuse
Gain or loss of >5% of body weight in the 6 months prior to Baseline (Day 1) or >10% of body weight in the 12 months prior to Screening
Type 1 diabetes mellitus by history
Positive severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test within 30 days before Baseline, history of hospitalization for coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19), or history of use of oxygen due to COVID-19. Note that previous COVID-19 infection alone is not exclusionary and vaccination against SARS-CoV-2 is allowed, but must be documented
Uncontrolled T2DM, defined as HbA1c 9% at Screening (subjects with HbA1c 9% may be rescreened on 1 occasion only at the Investigator's discretion)
Presence of cirrhosis on liver histology (stage 4 fibrosis), according to the judgement of the central reader, and/or cross sectional
Use of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonists, unless on a stable daily dose for at least 6 months prior to the Screening visit date, or on a complex oral anti-diabetic (OAD) regimen (3 or more OADs), unless on a stable dose for at least 6 months prior to the Screening visit date
Subjects with active or quiescent chronic liver disease of etiologies other than NASH (eg, viral or autoimmune hepatitis, primary sclerosing cholangitis, primary biliary cholangitis, and 'autoimmune hepatitis-overlap' syndromes, hemochromatosis, Wilson's disease, alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency, alcohol-related liver disease, drug-induced liver disease, and/or infiltrative conditions [eg, sarcoidosis])
Current or historic clinically evident hepatic decompensation event (eg, ascites formation, variceal hemorrhage, hepatic encephalopathy)
Any subject who has sustained a clinically evident cardiovascular, cerebrovascular, and/or peripheral vascular event during the 12 months prior to anticipated Baseline (Day 1) visit date is not eligible for study participation
