Destiny Pharma plc
(“Destiny Pharma” or “the Company”)

Posting of Annual Report and Accounts, and Notice of AGM

Brighton, United Kingdom – 4 May 2021 – Destiny Pharma plc (AIM: DEST) a clinical stage innovative biotechnology company focused on the development of novel medicines that can prevent life-threatening infections, announces that the following documents are now available on the Company’s website at www.destinypharma.com

·  Annual Report and Accounts of the Company for the year ended 31 December 2020
·  Notice of the 2021 Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) which is to be held at 11.00am BST on 3 June, 2021

Printed copies of both documents will be posted to shareholders today.

Whilst in normal circumstances the Board values the opportunity to engage with shareholders in person at its AGM, on this occasion the Board feels it is appropriate to advise shareholders against travelling to attend the AGM in person and, instead, to submit proxy votes as early as possible because, as matters currently stand, shareholders will not be granted access to the AGM.   Shareholders are strongly advised to appoint the Chairman of the AGM as their proxy. If the situation changes then shareholders will be notified via the Company’s website at www.destinypharma.com and via RNS announcement.
