Announcements in Conjunction With Theratechnologies Annual Meeting

MONTREAL, CANADA--(Marketwired - May 20, 2015) - Theratechnologies Inc. (TSX:TH) today held its annual meeting of shareholders, chaired by Dawn Svoronos, chair of the board of Theratechnologies.

During the meeting, management reviewed last year's financial and corporate highlights. It also discussed the Company's perspectives for the future.
