POSTING OF ANNUAL REPORT AND NOTICE OF AGM
DUBLIN, Ireland, and Boston MA, June 30, 2020, Amryt Pharma (AIM: AMYT, Euronext Growth: AYP), a global, commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to developing and commercializing novel therapeutics to treat patients suffering from serious and life-threatening rare diseases, announces that copies of the 2019 Annual Report have been sent to shareholders along with the Notice of Annual General Meeting (“AGM”). Copies are also available from the Company's website, www.amrytpharma.com. AGM Arrangements - The Company’s AGM will be held at the Company’s headquarters at 90 Harcourt Street, Dublin 2, Ireland at 12.30 p.m. on Wednesday, 29 July 2020.
The Company continues to closely monitor the evolving situation in respect of COVID-19. The health and welfare of our Shareholders and colleagues is our priority in making arrangements for this year’s AGM. Given the UK and Irish Governments’ ongoing guidance on social distancing and prohibition on non-essential travel and public gatherings relating to the COVID-19 pandemic which will significantly impact the ability of Shareholders to attend the AGM, and in the interests of maintaining the health, safety and welfare of our Shareholders and colleagues, as well as the public in general, this year’s AGM must follow a different format and Shareholders will not, unfortunately, be able to attend the AGM in person.
The AGM will still take place at the time, date and venue stated above but will only be attended by the minimum number of persons legally required to attend in order for the meeting to be quorate. The Directors have decided to hold the AGM at the Company’s headquarters in Dublin, Ireland, to enable Ray Stafford (Non-executive Chairman), Joseph Wiley (Chief Executive Officer) and Rory Nealon (Chief Financial Officer and Company Secretary) to be present and provide for a quorum. Any other Shareholder who attempts to attend in person will currently be refused entry. Therefore, the Board strongly encourages Shareholders to vote on all resolutions being proposed at the AGM by lodging a completed Form of Proxy or submitting an electronic filing via the share portal service or a proxy instruction via the CREST proxy voting service, and appointing the Chairman of the AGM as their proxy to cast their votes as directed. We will continue to monitor developments, including the latest UK and Irish Government’s measures relating to COVID-19, and in the event that our AGM arrangements have to change, the Company will issue an announcement via a regulatory information service and on our website at www.amrytpharma/investors/regulatorynews.

business of the meeting. If you wish to listen live to the AGM proceedings, you will be able to do so by
