On March 21, 2018, our Board of Directors (the “Board”) approved an increase to the size of the Board from seven to eight directors and appointed Tom Erdmann to the Board to fill the resulting vacancy, effective immediately. In connection with his appointment as a director, Mr. Erdmann will enter into our standard form of indemnification agreement. We are not aware of any transaction involving Senomyx, Inc. and Mr. Erdmann requiring disclosure under Item 404(a)of Regulation S-K. In connection with his appointment as a director, Mr. Erdmann received an automatic stock option grant to purchase 30,000 shares of our common stock to our 2013 Equity Incentive Plan. The stock option has an exercise price per share of $1.02, which was the fair market value of our common stock on the date of grant, and vests in equal monthly installments over a three-year period following the date of grant.

On March 22, 2018, we issued a press release announcing Mr. Erdmann’s election to the Board. A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 hereto.
