Additional Notice to US Investors This announcement is not a substitute for the Revised Offer Document and the Revised Acceptance Documents or any other document that Royalty Pharma has filed and may file with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") (including the Original Offer Document) in connection with the Offer. ELAN STOCKHOLDERS ARE URGED TO READ ANY SUCH DOCUMENTS FILED WITH THE SEC CAREFULLY IN THEIR ENTIRETY BECAUSE THEY CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE INCREASED OFFER. Any such documents will be available free of charge through the website maintained by the SEC at www.sec.gov or by directing a request to any of the persons listed above. The Offer is and will be made in the United States pursuant to the US Exchange Act subject to certain exemptive relief which has been granted in respect of the Offer by the SEC and otherwise in accordance with the requirements of the Irish Takeover Rules. Accordingly, the Offer will be subject to disclosure and other procedural requirements, including with respect to withdrawal rights, offer timetable, settlement procedures and timing of payments that may be different from those typically applicable under U.S. domestic tender offer procedures and law.

It may not be possible to sue Elan or its officers or directors in a non-US court for violations of US securities laws. In addition, US holders of Elan Stock should be aware that, if Royalty Pharma elects to proceed pursuant to a scheme of arrangement (as described in the Revised Offer Document), the federal securities laws of the United States may not be applicable.
