Result of Special Meeting and Cancellation from AIM

The Directors of TyraTech (AIM: TYRU and TYR), a life sciences company focused on nature-derived insect and parasite control products, announce that at the Special Meeting of the Company's shareholders held on 31 October 2018, the resolutions as set out in the Proxy Statement dated 9 October 2018 were duly passed.

Details of the proxy voting results on the resolution proposed at the Special Meeting were as follows:

To approve and adopt the Agreement and Plan of Merger, by and among the Company, American Vanguard Corporation (''AVD''), and

AVD Acquisition Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of AVD (''Merger Sub''), as it may

be amended from time to time (the ''Merger'').







To approve the cancellation of admission of the Company's Common Stock to trading on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange (''AIM'') conditional upon completion of the Merger and authorize the Board to take all actions which they consider reasonable or necessary to effect such cancellation.












Of shareholders entitled to vote at the Special Meeting other than American Vanguard Corporation, 55.0% of those entitled to vote and 99.9% of those present at the meeting in person or by proxy voted in favour of the Merger.

As a result, the Merger is expected to close on Thursday 8 November 2018. It is therefore expected that trading in the Company's Common Stock on AIM will cease at the close of business on Thursday 8 November 2018, with cancellation of such trading taking effect from 7.00 a.m. on Friday 9 November 2018.  The last day of dealings in the Common Stock prior to their cancellation from AIM and the last day for registration of transfers of Common Stock will be the effective time of the Merger, expected to be Thursday 8 November 2018. No transfers of Common Stock will be registered after that time and date.
