URGENT—YOUR IMMEDIATE ATTENTION IS REQUESTED
Dear Fellow Shareholder,
I am writing to remind you that the Special Meeting of Conatus
Pharmaceuticals Inc. (“Conatus”) to approve the merger with
Histogen Inc. and related matters is scheduled for May 7,
2020, a little more than two weeks away.
Your vote is important, regardless of the number of shares you own.
Please take a moment to vote your shares via the Internet,
telephone OR sign, date and return the enclosed form of proxy, at
your earliest convenience. Please note that voting by telephone or
on the Internet will require that you have your proxy control
number available. That number is printed on the enclosed form of
proxy, or in an email if you elected to receive proxy materials
electronically. Voting promptly will help reduce solicitation costs
and eliminate the need for follow-up phone calls or mailings.
Your Board of Directors urges you to vote “FOR” all
Failure to return your form of proxy or a vote via the Internet or
telephone may result in there not being a quorum present, thus
preventing the meeting from occurring. Please take the time to vote
If you have any questions or require assistance in voting your
shares, please call Conatus’ proxy solicitor, Laurel Hill Advisory
Group, LLC (“Laurel Hill”), at 1-888-742-1305.
