 Posting of Annual Report and Accounts and Notice of Annual General Meeting



Southampton, UK - 3 June 2020: Synairgen plc (LSE: SNG), the respiratory drug discovery and development company, announces that the Annual Report and Financial Statements for the year ended 31 December 2019 and Notice of Annual General Meeting was posted to shareholders today and are available on the Company's website at www.synairgen.com.



Annual General Meeting

In line with the UK Government's latest guidelines on COVID-19, Synairgen will host its AGM as a closed meeting at The Blueprint Design Company Limited, Martins Barn, Birdham Road, Chichester, West Sussex PO20 7BX at 9.00 a.m. on 29 June 2020. The health and safety of the Company's shareholders as well as its employees is of paramount importance and, as a result, it will not be possible for shareholders to attend the meeting in person. Any shareholders attempting to attend the AGM will be refused entry.


The Annual General Meeting Notice was posted to shareholders today and is available on the Company's website at www.synairgen.com. The AGM will be convened with the minimum necessary quorum of two shareholders. The outcome of the resolutions will be determined by shareholder vote based on the proxy votes received. Shareholders are therefore strongly encouraged to vote by proxy on the resolutions contained in the AGM notice. Given the restrictions on attendance, shareholders are also strongly encouraged to appoint the "Chairman of the Meeting" as their proxy rather than another person who will not be permitted to attend the meeting. To ensure votes are counted at the AGM, completed proxy forms should either be completed electronically (using either Link Asset Services' Signal Shares share portal service at www.signalshares.com or if you hold shares in uncertificated form (i.e. in CREST) by completing a CREST Proxy Instruction) or be posted to: Link Asset Services, PXS 1, 34 Beckenham Road, Beckenham, Kent BR3 4ZF and must be received by 9.00 a.m. on 25 June 2020 in order to be valid. This is particularly important given that COVID-19 has caused delays to the collection and delivery of postal services.


The results of the AGM will be announced to the London Stock Exchange and placed on the Company's website, in the usual way, as soon as practicable after the conclusion of the AGM.


The Board would like to take this opportunity to thank all shareholders for their continued support and understanding in these exceptional circumstances and wish them well during this time.
