SUPPLEMENT TO PROXY STATEMENT
FOR ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS
To Be Held on May 29, 2020
May 8, 2020
Dear Fellow Stockholders:
We are very saddened to report that R. Douglas Norby, who served on the Board of Directors (the Board) for Krystal Biotech, Inc. (the Company) since 2017, recently passed away unexpectedly. Mr. Norby served as our lead independent director, Chairman of the Audit Committee and a member of the Compensation Committee and the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. The Companys Board of Directors and management wish to express their appreciation for Mr. Norbys service and contributions to the Company and its stockholders.
The Board has determined that at this time it will not appoint a replacement to fill the Class I seat that had been held by Mr. Norby, but has reduced the size of the Board from seven to six members, with the reduction occurring in Class I.
On April 16, 2020, the Board appointed Daniel S. Janney as lead independent director to fill the vacancy and to serve in such capacity until his successor is duly appointed and qualified. The Board also updated committee membership and appointed new chairs of committees as appropriate. Following the reassignment, the membership information for each of the Board committees is as follows:
Daniel S. Janney*
Dino A. Rossi**
Lead independent director.
Audit committee financial expert.
The table appearing on Page 19 of the 2020 Proxy Statement reporting the beneficial ownership of our common stock, par value $0.00001 per share (our Common Stock) by holders of more than 5% of our Common Stock and our directors and executive officers as of April 1, 2020, includes information regarding Mr. Norbys beneficial ownership of Common Stock. If the shares of Common Stock previously included as being beneficially owned by Mr. Norby as of April 1, 2020 were not included in the total shares of Common Stock owned by directors and executive officers as a group, the total number of shares of Common Stock would be reduced by 30,712 shares, and the total number of directors and executive officers as a group would be reduced to 11.
Neither the reduction in the size of the Board, nor the reassignment in committees, changes the nominees recommended by the Board of Directors for election of directors in Class III. The Board of Directors recommends a vote FOR nominees Krish S. Krishnan and Kirti Ganorkar and the other proposal set out in the Notice of Annual Meeting of Stockholders of the Company to be held May 29, 2020.
At the time the Proxy Statement was filed, 2019 bonus awards for Krish Krishnan, our chief executive officer, and Suma Krishnan, our chief operating officer, had not been determined. As a result, the Summary Compensation Table included on page 15 of the Proxy Statement does not reflect the 2019 bonus awards. On April 29, 2020 the Board approved a 2019 cash bonus of $254,153 for Mr. Krishnan and a 2019 cash bonus of $254,153 for Ms. Krishnan. With the addition of the bonus awards, Mr. Krishnans total compensation for 2019 was increased to $619,878, and Ms. Krishnans total compensation for 2019 was increased to $495,444.
Except as set forth in this Proxy Supplement, the information in the Proxy Statement remains unchanged.
/s/ Krish S. Krishnan
Krish S. Krishnan
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
