On April 14, 2022, in consultation with the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Voyager Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”), Mark Levin and Steven Paul, M.D. each requested not to be nominated for re-election to the Board when his current term expires at the Company’s 2022 annual meeting of stockholders.

The Committee has engaged a search firm to identify candidates to fill the anticipated vacancies to be created by the departures of Mr. Levin and Dr. Paul following the Company’s 2022 annual meeting.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
