Dear Jazzicians,

I am writing in connection with our 2023 Annual General Meeting of Shareholders (AGM) approaching on 3 August because many of you are shareholders in addition to being employees of Jazz Pharmaceuticals.

Please take a moment now to ensure that your shares are represented at this important meeting. As a Jazz Pharmaceuticals shareholder, your vote is very important.

We have a number of important proposals being voted on at the AGM. Jazz Pharmaceuticals’ board of directors and management team recommend that you vote your shares “FOR” the election of each of the director nominees that have been nominated for re-election at the AGM and “FOR” each of the other proposals that have been submitted for a shareholder vote at the AGM. Please refer to our proxy statement and the additional proxy materials that have been filed with the SEC for more details regarding the nominees and proposals.

If you were a shareholder on the record date (7 June 2023), you should have received instructions in the mail or electronically from your bank or broker about how to vote your shares and more information is provided below about E*Trade notifications.

Only shareholders of record at the close of business on the record date may vote at the AGM.

We encourage you to vote your shares as soon as possible.

For E*Trade employee stock plan services, please call +1.800.838.0908 or +1.650.599.0125.

You may also reach out to me, Aislinn Doody or Julie Panigrahi for further assistance.

Thank you for your continued contributions to the growth and success of Jazz Pharmaceuticals and thank you in advance for voting promptly.
