Group of Cytodyn Stockholders Nominates Five Highly Qualified Director Candidates to Replace Board Responsible for Mismanagement and Value Destruction

July 1, 2021 GMT

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 1, 2021--

A group of long-time stockholders (the “Nominating Stockholders”) of CytoDyn Inc. (“CYDY or the “Company) (OTC: CYDY) today announced that it has sent a notice to CYDY nominating five highly experienced director candidates – Thomas Errico, MD, Bruce Patterson, MD, Paul Rosenbaum, Peter Staats, MD and Melissa Yaeger – to serve on the Company’s Board of Directors.

In the letter to stockholders, the Committee highlights the numerous ill-advised actions taken by CYDY’s current leadership, which has overseen many value-destructive failures involving the Company’s Leronlimab drug, while manipulating its corporate machinery to further entrench the Board and disenfranchise investors. The letter emphasizes that if elected, the nominees would recruit a new management team to replace the current one that is responsible for these failures, and take the steps necessary to earn FDA approval for Leronlimab and enhance long-term value for all stockholders.


The full text of the Nominating Stockholders’ letter to CYDY stockholders can be accessed at: www.advancingll.com/letter.

The Nominating Stockholders have launched a website at www.advancingll.com that includes information about the nominees and the group’s platform. It will be continuously updated with additional information.
