You are invited to attend the annual meeting of stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”) of Codexis, Inc. (“Codexis,” “we,” “us” or “our”) to be held on Wednesday, June 14, 2017, at 9:00 a.m., California time, at our executive offices at 400 Penobscot Drive, Redwood City, California.

At this year’s Annual Meeting, you will be asked to:

 

 

(i)

elect three Class I directors to hold office until the 2020 annual meeting of stockholders;

 

 

(ii)

ratify the selection of BDO USA, LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2017;

 

 

(iii)

vote, on a non-binding, advisory basis, on the compensation of our named executive officers;

 

 

(iv)

(v)

transact such other business as may properly come before the Annual Meeting.

The accompanying Notice of Annual Meeting and proxy statement describe these matters. We urge you to read this information carefully.

Your board of directors unanimously believes that election of its nominees for director, the ratification of the Audit Committee’s selection of our independent registered public accounting firm, approval of the compensation of our named executive officers on a non-binding, advisory basis and approval of holding a non-binding, advisory stockholder vote on compensation for our named executive officers once every three years are in the best interest of Codexis and its stockholders, and, accordingly, recommends a vote “FOR” election of its nominees for director, “FOR” the ratification of the selection of BDO USA, LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm, “FOR” the approval of the compensation of our named executive officers on a non-binding, advisory basis and in favor of the option of “EVERY THREE YEARS” for the non-binding, advisory vote on the frequency of the advisory vote on compensation for our named executive officers.

In addition to the business to be transacted as described above, management will speak on our developments of the past year and respond to comments and questions of general interest to stockholders.

It is important that your shares be represented and voted whether or not you plan to attend the Annual Meeting in person. Whether or not you expect to attend the Annual Meeting, please complete, sign, date and return the enclosed proxy card as promptly as possible in order to ensure your representation at the Annual Meeting.
