Teprotumumab MEANINGFUL GROWTH OPPORTUNITY IN AN AREA OF SIGNIFICANT UNMET NEED
Teprotumumab Exemplifies Our Pipeline Strategy Building a Pipeline for Sustainable Long-Term Growth Teprotumumab meets ALL pipeline candidate criteria and has potential to be first FDA-approved therapy for thyroid eye disease PIPELINE CANDIDATE CRITERIA TEPROTUMUMAB Teprotumumab is an investigational candidate and its safety and efficacy have not been established. High unmet need with preference for rare diseases Compelling clinical trial data or proof of concept Key regulatory designations Durable Intellectual Property No FDA-approved therapies exist for thyroid eye disease Standard of care proven ineffective; safety concerns Surgery is invasive, complex and often ineffective Impressive Phase 2 results published in The New England Journal of Medicine Phase 3 trial underway; enrollment completed ahead of schedule U.S. Orphan, Fast-Track and Breakthrough Therapy 12-year biologic exclusivity
Thyroid Eye Disease (TED) Debilitating autoimmune inflammatory disease of the eye Associated with Graves’ Disease, but TED is a separate and distinct disease Impacts more women than men; typically happens mid-life; smoking worsens severity Orbital Inflammation & Swelling Corneal Ulceration Corneal Ulceration Proptosis Begins as treatable active TED and progresses to inactive TED Inflammation behind the eye causes proptosis (bulging of the eyes) Over time turns fibrotic, causing permanent structural damage Proptosis causes multiple conditions such as diplopia (double vision), strabismus (misalignment), compressed optic nerve (can be sight threatening), ulcerations, pain; can be disfiguring and emotionally debilitating
Patients Living with TED Have Significant Challenges Living a Normal Life “My social life has basically been non-existent since the bulging started.” “You would think, ‘Oh, not being able to close your eye, that's not a big deal,’ but it was a big deal. It was so easy to irritate. I had to wear sunglasses to sleep; it felt like I was in a stupor.” “TED has robbed me of a normal life and my looks. I don’t know how much more I can take.” “My colleagues know about the condition but it’s difficult talking to an acquaintance about it, or someone I just met…it can be kind of embarrassing.” Source: Horizon Pharma market research and patient interviews. Proptosis Corneal Ulceration Diplopia (Double Vision) Requires Night Protection
Do not reverse underlying alterations of orbital tissue Do not reverse proptosis or diplopia Significant side effects Current Treatment Approach: Steroids An Unmet Need Exists Active TED: Current Approaches are Suboptimal Pathogenic Mechanisms of Disease Not Targeted No disease modifying medication available Many U.S. physicians “watch and wait” for active phase to end Significant need for a treatment that can prevent the progression of the disease and the need for multiple corrective surgeries
Inactive TED: Surgery Becomes Only Option Surgery becomes only option(1) Complex with mixed results Often requires multiple surgeries per eye because accumulation of fibrotic tissue complicates operations Tens of thousands of dollars per surgery While corrective for some, can result in permanent eye misalignment, double vision, lazy eye or blindness Exposing Orbit Removing Bone Removing Tissue and Fat (1) Surgical treatment can include decompression surgery, eyelid surgery and corrective vision surgery. Once TED becomes inactive, long-term damage is done
Fully human monoclonal antibody inhibitor of IGF-1R Blocks IGF-1R and turns off signaling complex at the source of the disease Intended to reduce inflammation and prevent excessive cell growth behind the eye Mechanism of Action of Teprotumumab for TED The body attacks its own orbital cells which overexpress IGF-1R The IGF-1R and TSHR are linked and form a signaling complex This leads to severe inflammation and expansion of tissue, muscle and fat cells behind the eye Causes proptosis (bulging of the eyes) and optic nerve compression TED Pathology Teprotumumab Mechanism of Action(1) (1) Smith TJ and Hedegus L. N Engl J Med 2016;375:1552-65. IGF-1R: Insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor. TSHR: Thyroid stimulating hormone receptor. Teprotumumab is an investigational candidate and its safety and efficacy have not been established.
Breakthrough Pivotal Phase 2 Trial Results Demonstrated Proptosis Improvement Source: Smith TJ, et al. N Engl J Med 2017;376:1748-61. (1) Primary endpoint is a composite endpoint defined as a ≥2 point reduction in CAS and a ≥2 mm reduction in proptosis. (2) Smith TJ, et al. N Engl J Med 2017;376:1748-61. Clinical Activity Score (CAS): A 7-point scale that measures change in orbital inflammation and pain. Thyroid-associated opthalmopathy is also known as thyroid eye disease.

KRYSTEXXA Flagship Medicine with Significant Growth Potential
KRYSTEXXA is the Only Medicine Approved for Uncontrolled Gout(1); Rapidly Reverses Disease Progression(2) Before and After 5 Months of KRYSTEXXA KRYSTEXXA of patients had complete response defined as reduced serum uric acid(2)(3) 42% of KRYSTEXXA patients had complete resolution of tophi(4) 45% (1) Uncontrolled gout is defined as chronic gout that is refractory to conventional therapies. Addressable U.S. population of 100,000. (2) Sundy JS, Baraf HSB, Yood RA, et al.

RECONCILIATIONS OF GAAP to Non-gaap measures
Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures EBITDA, or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and adjusted EBITDA are used and provided by Horizon Pharma as non-GAAP financial measures. Horizon Pharma provides certain other financial measures such as non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, non-GAAP gross profit and gross profit ratio, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP tax rate, non-GAAP operating cash flow and net debt, each of which include adjustments to GAAP figures. These non-GAAP measures are intended to provide additional information on Horizon Pharma’s performance, operations, expenses, profitability and cash flows. Adjustments to Horizon Pharma's GAAP figures as well as EBITDA exclude acquisition and/or divestiture-related expenses, charges related to the discontinuation of ACTIMMUNE development for Friedreich’s ataxia, gain from divestiture, gain from sale of assets, an upfront fee for a license of a patent, litigation settlements, loss on debt extinguishment, costs of debt refinancing, drug manufacturing harmonization costs, restructuring and realignment costs, as well as non-cash items such as share-based compensation, depreciation and amortization, royalty accretion, non-cash interest expense, long-lived asset impairment charges, impacts of contingent royalty liability remeasurements and other non-cash adjustments. Certain other special items or substantive events may also be included in the non-GAAP adjustments periodically when their magnitude is significant within the periods incurred. Horizon maintains an established non-GAAP cost policy that guides the determination of what costs will be excluded in non-GAAP measures. Horizon Pharma believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP figures, can enhance an overall understanding of Horizon Pharma's financial and operating performance. The non-GAAP financial measures are included with the intent of providing investors with a more complete understanding of the Company’s historical and expected 2018 financial results and trends and to facilitate comparisons between periods and with respect to projected information. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are among the indicators Horizon Pharma's management uses for planning and forecasting purposes and measuring the Company's performance. For example, adjusted EBITDA is used by Horizon Pharma as one measure of management performance under certain incentive compensation arrangements. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Horizon Pharma has not provided a reconciliation of its full-year 2018 adjusted EBITDA outlook to an expected net income (loss) outlook because certain items such as acquisition/divestiture-related expenses and share-based compensation that are a component of net income (loss) cannot be reasonably projected due to the significant impact of changes in Horizon Pharma's stock price, the variability associated with the size or timing of acquisitions/divestitures and other factors. These components of net income (loss) could significantly impact Horizon Pharma’s actual net income (loss).
