Voting Period Extended 6 Days to Solicit Additional Votes
Meeting Will Take Place on Thursday, April 27, 2017
WE NEED YOUR VOTE!
We recently sent you proxy materials concerning the Special Meeting of Stockholders of Mast Therapeutics, Inc. to vote on the proposed merger with Savara Inc.
According to our latest records, your vote for this meeting
HAS NOT YET BEEN RECEIVED
To date all of the proposals have received strong
support, with over 95% of the votes received voting in favor of the merger, but we need additional votes to achieve a quorum and approval of the other proposals required for the merger to go forward. Mast has more than 30,000 stockholders and many
of them hold relatively small positions, making it critical for stockholders with smaller positions to vote.
