Subject: Important Message from Karim Mikhail

Dear Colleagues,

I know there have been a lot of communications about the proxy contest over the past few weeks both from me personally and in the public domain.

As I said from the outset, this aggressive public back and forth is typical in a contested election. However, you may have seen that Sarissa has continued to print factually inaccurate information at the expense of our Company. I can’t speak for why Sarissa is making these false statements, but I can speak to the facts about Amarin and what steps we are taking to hold Sarissa accountable. We have publicly corrected every misstatement in the strongest terms possible and have alerted the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) about Sarissa’s falsehoods and wrongdoings.

When this proxy contest ends, regardless of the outcome, we all must continue to stay focused on our important work of getting VASCEPA/VAZKEPA into the hands of our patients who need it — I know you all are up to the task! The last 18 months at Amarin have been transformative and exceeded my expectations for where we would be. A significant transformation like this is not easy and it doesn’t happen overnight. We have reimagined the Company from our people to our strategy to our investments, and I could not be prouder of what we have achieved together.

It’s not just me who recognizes our hard work and what we have achieved. Our Board of Directors stands firmly behind our team and has the utmost confidence in Amarin’s future. Our success in stabilizing our U.S. business, the positive pricing and reimbursement discussions we are having every day in Europe, and our regulatory efforts across International reaffirm our unique product and the importance of Amarin’s mission. We must not let up on our critical work and continue driving forward toward successful outcomes, because this will make a difference for patients.

On behalf of the entire Board, thank you for all of your hard work and your continued commitment to Amarin.


Karim Mikhail

President & Chief Executive Officer
