19 May 2021 – Notice to Register for 2021 AGM

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

Notice to Register for 2021 AGM

Brighton, United Kingdom – 19 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, as announced on 4 May 2021, will hold its 2021 Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) at the offices of finnCap Ltd, Destiny Pharma’s Nominated Advisor and Joint Broker, at 11.00am BST on 3 June 2021. Destiny Pharma will operate an audio dial-in facility to allow Shareholders to listen to the business of the meeting.

As previously announced in the Posting of Annual Report and Notice of AGM, 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.

Immediately following the AGM at 11:00am BST, Destiny Pharma will host a live webcast presentation followed by Q&A.

Shareholders will not get an opportunity to vote or ask questions or any other participation during the call but are encouraged to pre-submit any questions for Directors of the Company in advance of the AGM to agm2021@destinypharma.com by no later than 17:00pm BST on 2 June, 2021. Please include the Shareholder’s name and Shareholder Reference Number (which can be found on the share certificate or proxy form) in your email.

A full recording of the 2021 AGM will be made available on the Company’s website at www.destinypharma.com
