Recent Key Activities:
* In the third quarter of 2020, the Company delivered approximately 134,000
courses of oral TPOXX® to the SNS.  SIGA has recognized $41.4 million of
revenue in connection with this delivery, of which $4.1 million relates to
amounts previously received in connection with raw material procurement and
which were recorded as deferred revenue.

* In October 2020, the Company delivered approximately 112,000 courses of oral
TPOXX® to the SNS.  This delivery will be reflected in the financial results
for the fourth quarter 2020.

* In October 2020, the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) issued an
advanced contract award notice (ACAN), indicating that the PHAC intends to
purchase up to 33,300 courses of oral TPOXX® within five years as specified
in the ACAN, with 3,700 courses to be delivered by March 31, 2021; a
cumulative total of 18,500 courses to be delivered by March 31, 2023; and an
additional 14,800 courses to be delivered after March 31, 2023, subject to
option exercise. This ACAN follows, but is separate and incremental to, the
issuance in April 2020 of a contract by the Canadian Department of National
Defence (CDND) for the delivery of up to 15,325 courses of oral TPOXX®.
Share Repurchase Activity

During the third quarter of 2020, SIGA repurchased approximately 0.9 million
shares of its common stock, for approximately $5.6 million.  As of September
30, the Company has cumulatively repurchased this year approximately 3.7
million shares of its common stock for approximately $21.8 million. 

Product Delivery Update in Connection with the 19C BARDA Contract

Pursuant to options already exercised under the 19C BARDA Contract, SIGA
delivered approximately 251,000 courses of oral TPOXX® to the SNS over the
first nine months of 2020.  In October, an additional approximate 112,000
courses of oral TPOXX® were delivered to the SNS.  As such, total deliveries
of oral TPOXX® under the 19C BARDA Contract are expected to total
approximately 363,000 courses for the calendar year 2020, resulting in annual
revenues of approximately $113 million.  The 19C BARDA Contract has up to an
additional $414 million of procurement-related options remaining for potential
future exercise by BARDA.  Amounts noted in this paragraph do not include any
actual or potential product deliveries in connection with international

COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant societal and economic
disruption.  Such disruption, and the associated risks and costs, are
expected to continue for an indeterminate period of time.  Given the
uncertain future course of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the uncertain scale and
scope of its future impact, the Company is continually reviewing business and
financial risks related to the pandemic and is continually seeking
coordination with its government partners with respect to the performance of
current and future government contracts.  Additionally, the Company is
continually coordinating with service providers and vendors, in particular
contract manufacturing organizations that constitute our supply chain, to
review actions and risks caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic has not adversely affected the liquidity position of the
Company, nor is it currently expected to have a material adverse effect on the
financial condition or annual financial results of the Company, although the
Company cannot provide assurances as to the ultimate impact of the pandemic
upon the macro environment or the Company’s industry.

About Smallpox(1)

Smallpox is a contagious, disfiguring and often deadly disease that has
affected humans for thousands of years. Naturally occurring smallpox was
eradicated worldwide by 1980, the result of an unprecedented global
immunization campaign. Samples of smallpox virus have been kept for research
purposes. This has led to concerns that smallpox could someday be used as a
biological warfare agent. A vaccine can prevent smallpox, but the risk of the
current vaccine's side effects is too high to justify routine vaccination for
people at low risk of exposure to the smallpox virus.
