Amendment Description SCYNEXIS, Inc. (“SCYNEXIS,” “the Company,” “we,” or “our”) filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 (the “Form 10-K”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 29, 2022. The Company is filing this Amendment No. 1 on Form 10-K/A (the “Form 10-K/A”) for the purpose of including in Part III the information that was to be incorporated by reference from its definitive proxy statement for the 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. This Form 10-K/A amends and restates in their entirety Items 10 through 14 of Part III of the Form 10-K. In addition, the reference on the cover of the Form 10-K to the incorporation by reference of the Company’s definitive proxy statement into Part III of the Form 10-K is hereby amended to delete that reference. In addition, Item 15 of Part IV of the Form 10-K is amended and restated in its entirety to file new certifications by our principal executive officer and principal financial officer as required by Rule 12b-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and to file our amended non-employee director compensation policy. Except as expressly noted in this Form 10-K/A, this Form 10-K/A does not reflect events occurring after the original filing of the Form 10-K or modify or update in any way any of the other disclosures contained in the Form 10-K including, without limitation, the consolidated financial statements. Accordingly, this Form 10-K/A should be read in conjunction with the Form 10-K and the Company’s other filings with the SEC.
