SUPPLEMENT TO PROXY STATEMENT
2022 ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS
To Be Held on June 16, 2022
Kala Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company,” “we,” or “our”) is filing this supplement on May 31, 2022 to update information contained in the Company’s Definitive Proxy Statement filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 29, 2022 (the “Proxy Statement”), and made available to the Company’s stockholders in connection with the solicitation of proxies on behalf of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) for its annual meeting of stockholders to be held on June 16, 2022, or any adjournment or postponement thereof (the “Annual Meeting”).
As described in the Proxy Statement, our Board believes that, taken as a whole, it should embody a diverse set of skills, experiences and backgrounds.
Our nominating and corporate governance committee had previously been working to identify and nominate diverse directors for election to the Board. However, that process was suspended while we engaged in a strategic process to sell our commercial assets, as the Board believed that recruiting new Board members was not appropriate while working towards a fundamental shift in the business.
Following the announcement on May 23, 2022 of our entry into a definitive agreement to sell our commercial products, EYSUVIS® and INVELTYS®, to Alcon Inc., our Board resumed its search for diverse director candidates, and the Board is committed to appointing at least one Board member who is racially and/or gender diverse within one year of the Annual Meeting.
