Item 8.01 Other Events.

On January 21, 2020, Horizon Therapeutics plc announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved TEPEZZATM (teprotumumab-trbw) for the treatment of Thyroid Eye Disease (TED). TEPEZZA is the first and only FDA-approved medicine for the treatment of TED, a serious, progressive and vision-threatening rare autoimmune disease that is associated with proptosis (eye bulging), diplopia (double vision), blurred vision, pain, inflammation and facial disfigurement. TEPEZZA is a fully human monoclonal antibody (mAb) and a targeted inhibitor of the insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor (IGF-1R) that is administered to patients once every three weeks for a total of eight infusions.

Horizon expects TEPEZZA to be available in the United States in the coming weeks.

On January 21, 2020, Horizon issued a press release announcing the FDA approval of TEPEZZA for the treatment of TED. A copy of this press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
