On April 30, 2019, BioSpecifics Technology Corp. (the "Company") filed its Proxy Statement and Proxy Card with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). The Company is filing this amendment to its Proxy Statement to update the address to which Stockholders may mail their completed Proxy Cards. Stockholders of record of the Company's common stock as of the close of business on April 15, 2019 (the "Record Date") may vote by mail by completing and returning their Proxy Cards to:
MACKENZIE PARTNERS, INC.
P.O. Box 618

In anticipation of our 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the "2019 Annual Meeting"), we filed our Proxy Statement and Proxy Card on April 30, 2019 with the SEC. As described in the Proxy Statement, the purposes of the 2019 Annual Meeting are to seek Stockholder approval of the following three proposals:
If you were a record holder of shares of common stock on the Record Date, then you are entitled to vote on the above proposals as follows:
By Mail. Complete and mail your Proxy Card in the postage prepaid envelope you receive, and return the Proxy Card to MacKenzie Partners, Inc., Proxy Tabulation, P.O. Box 618, New York, New York 10138-1151. Complete instructions are included on the Proxy Card. Your proxy will be voted in accordance with your instructions. If you sign and return the Proxy Card, but do not specify how you want your shares voted, they will be voted "FOR" the nominee for the second class of directors, "FOR" ratification of the independent registered public accounting firm, and "FOR" approval of the 2019 Plan and will be voted according to the discretion of the proxy holder named in the Proxy Card upon any other business that may properly be brought before the meeting and at all adjournments and postponements thereof.
In Person at the Meeting. If you attend the 2019 Annual Meeting, be sure to bring a form of personal picture identification with you. You may deliver your completed Proxy Card in person, or you may vote by completing a ballot, which will be available at the meeting.

If your shares of common stock are held in "street name" through a bank, broker or other institution, then that bank, broker or other institution is considered the holder of record of your shares, and you should refer to information forwarded to you by such holder of record for your voting options. You may vote as follows:
By Internet or By Telephone. You will receive instructions from your broker or other nominee if you are permitted to vote by internet or telephone.
By Mail. You will receive instructions from your broker or other nominee explaining how to vote your shares.
In Person at the Meeting. If you attend the 2019 Annual Meeting, in addition to picture identification, you should: (1) bring an account statement or a letter from the record holder indicating that you owned the shares as of the Record Date, and (2) contact the broker or other nominee who holds your shares to obtain a broker's Proxy Card and bring it with you to the meeting. Directions to the 2019 Annual Meeting may be obtained by visiting https://www.morganlewis.com/locations/new-york and clicking on "Directions" beneath the address 101 Park Ave., New York, NY 101780060 United States.
