Company shareholders as of the record date can vote, even if they have subsequently sold their shares. Shareholders can vote their shares by proxy in advance of the AGM by using one of the options detailed on the proxy card enclosed with the original Proxy Statement and as described above.  Shareholders who have previously submitted their proxy or otherwise voted and who do not want to change their vote need not take any action.

We advise shareholders to monitor the Company’s website, http://ir.iterumtx.com, regularly as circumstances may change at short notice.

Departure of Director

On June 8, 2021, Dr. Shahzad Malik, a director of the Company, notified the Company of his resignation from the Board of the Company, effective immediately.  Dr. Malik also served as a member of the Company’s compensation and nominating and governance committees.   Dr. Malik’s resignation was not the result of any dispute or disagreement with the Company or the Company’s Board on any matter relating to the operations, policies or practices of the Company. Following Dr. Malik’s resignation, the Board approved a decrease in the size of the Board from eight to seven directors and as a result, there is not currently a vacancy on the Board.

 

 

 

By order of the Board of Directors
