WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eagle Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: EGRX) (“Eagle”) announced today that, due to public health and safety concerns related to the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic, recommendations and orders from federal, state and local authorities, and to support the health and well-being of its stockholders, employees and others, Eagle is changing its 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”) to a virtual-only format that will be held via live audio webcast.

The previously announced date and time of the Annual Meeting, Tuesday, June 23, 2020, at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time, as disclosed in the previously distributed Notice of the Annual Meeting and Definitive Proxy Statement, has not changed. Online access to the Annual Meeting will begin at approximately 9:45 a.m. Eastern Time. Stockholders will not be able to attend the Annual Meeting in person.

Eagle stockholders of record as of April 27, 2020 (the “Record Date”) can register to attend the Annual Meeting by accessing the meeting center at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/EGRX and entering the 16-digit control number on the proxy card or Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials previously received.
