Devon, PA, October 4, 2023 — Zynerba Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: ZYNE), the leader in innovative pharmaceutically-produced transdermal cannabinoid therapies for orphan neuropsychiatric disorders, today reminds all stockholders, including individual stockholders, to promptly tender their shares into the tender offer (the “Offer”) by Harmony Biosciences Holdings, Inc. (“Harmony”) and its wholly owned subsidiary, Xylophone Acquisition Corp. (“Purchaser”), to purchase all outstanding shares of Zynerba common stock. The Zynerba Board of Directors unanimously recommends that Zynerba stockholders tender their shares pursuant to the Offer.
Key Information to Know
- Zynerba stockholders must tender their shares by 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on Tuesday, October 10, 2023. Please note that if you hold shares of Zynerba common stock through a broker or other nominee, they may have a processing cutoff that is prior to the tender deadline (e.g., October 5th or 6th), so it is important that you act now if you want to tender your shares.
How to Tender Your Shares:
- If you hold shares of Zynerba common stock through a broker, dealer, commercial bank, trust company or other nominee, you must instruct such broker or other nominee to tender your shares. Please contact your broker or other nominee promptly to allow sufficient time to tender. Do not wait until the tender deadline to tender your shares as they may not be counted. Please note that, in some cases, your broker’s or other nominee’s processing cutoff date may have changed since the Offer deadline was first announced, so take prompt action today to ensure your shares are properly tendered prior to any applicable processing cutoff.

Why You Should Tender Your Shares:
- Every share tendered by stockholders is important.
- If less than a majority of the outstanding shares of Zynerba common stock are tendered, the Offer will not be completed and Zynerba will not be acquired by Harmony.
- If Zynerba is not acquired by Harmony, there are significant risks associated with Zynerba’s ability to raise the required capital to continue as a standalone company and remain listed on the Nasdaq stock market.
If the Offer is completed, stockholders will receive an up-front purchase price of $1.1059 per share plus one non-tradeable contingent value right (“CVR”) per share representing the right to receive up to an additional approximately $2.5444 per share in cash, without interest and less any applicable tax withholding, upon the achievement of certain clinical and commercial milestones related to Zygel. If all such milestones are achieved, the total consideration payable to stockholders is up to $3.6503 per share in cash when combined with the up-front purchase price.
