TARRYTOWN, N.Y., June 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: REGN) today announced a change in the format and location of its 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders. In light of the continued public health concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, and to protect the health of our shareholders, employees and other attendees, the Annual Meeting will be held solely by remote communication, in a "virtual-only" format. Shareholders will no longer have the option to attend the Annual Meeting in person. The meeting will still be held on June 12, 2020 at 10:30 a.m., Eastern Time, at the previously announced date and time.

Regeneron has designed the format of the Annual Meeting to ensure that shareholders are afforded similar opportunities to participate as they would at an in-person meeting, using online tools to ensure shareholder access and participation.
As described in the proxy materials for the Annual Meeting, shareholders are entitled to attend and vote at the Annual Meeting if they held Regeneron shares as of the close of business on April 14, 2020, the record date designated by Regeneron's Board of Directors for the Annual Meeting.
