Explanatory Note


On April 28, 2021, Asensus Surgical, Inc. (the “Company”) updated the proxy available to stockholders who elect to vote electronically to include an alternative that allows the stockholder to vote for or against all director nominees as a group, in addition to the alternative to vote for each nominee separately. This update was made available to make the electronic voting option easier for stockholders to encourage completion of the proxy in advance of the virtual Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on June 3, 2021 beginning at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time. No other changes were made to the proxy. None of the proposed items submitted for stockholder vote have been changed.


The updated electronic proxy is included as additional definitive proxy material for the upcoming Annual Meeting of Stockholders.
