LONDON, ONTARIO – April 27, 2020 – Sernova Corp. (TSX-V:SVA)(OTCQB:SEOVF)(FSE:PSH) announced today, with its continued COVID-19 vigilance, social gathering size restrictions in effect imposed by public health authorities and the now anticipated near term relaxation of certain COVID-19 public health-related restrictions, the Annual General Meeting (AGM) and CEO teleconference call originally scheduled for Thursday, April 30, 2020, has been adjourned to May 29, 2020, at 9:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. (Pacific Time), respectively. All other aspects of the AGM remain the same as published in the AGM materials, filed on www.sedar.com and available on www.sernova.com/investor/agm.
“Sernova has historically encouraged its shareholders to attend our AGM in person. Given the current restrictions imposed by the Canadian and provincial governments to reduce the spread of COVID-19, including restrictions on social gatherings, and travel, and feedback from our shareholders desiring to attend, we have decided to adjourn the AGM for 30 days to ensure the safety of everyone who may want to attend the meeting and to continue doing our part to help “flatten the curve.” We continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation actively and update our company policies accordingly to make proactive adjustments, and we appreciate our shareholders’ support while we safely continue our operations,” stated Dr. Philip Toleikis, President and CEO of Sernova.

ABOUT SERNOVA’S CELL POUCH SYSTEM
The Cell Pouch™, as part of the Cell Pouch System, is a novel, proprietary, scalable, implantable macro- encapsulation device solution designed for the long-term survival and function of therapeutic cells. The device upon implantation is designed to incorporate with tissue, forming highly vascularized tissue chambers for the transplantation and function of therapeutic cells, which then release proteins and hormones as required to treat disease. The Cell Pouch, along with therapeutic cells, has been shown to provide long-term safety and efficacy in small and large animal models of diabetes and has been proven to provide a biologically compatible environment for insulin-producing cells in humans.
