About Avadel Pharmaceuticals plc

Who We Are: Avadel Pharmaceuticals plc (Nasdaq: AVDL) is a biopharmaceutical company focused on transforming medicines to transform lives. Our approach includes applying innovative solutions to the development of medications that address the challenges patients face with current treatment options. Oxybate therapy is currently the standard of care for the treatment of excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) and cataplexy in patients living with narcolepsy. However, currently approved oxybate products are immediate release formulations requiring two nightly doses - one dose at bedtime and the second dose 2.5-4 hours later, in the middle of the night. Our current lead drug candidate, LumryzTM (sodium oxybate) extended release for oral suspension (formerly known as FT218), applies our proprietary drug delivery technology to allow for a single bedtime dose, eliminating the need to have a forced awakening during the middle of the night and giving patients the chance for an uninterrupted nights sleep. An extended-release medication sounds like a simple innovation, but it is what has been lacking for 20 years and we believe this will be transformative for people with narcolepsy. For more information, please visit www.avadel.com or check out narcolespydisrupts.com.

What We Do: LumryzTM has been granted Orphan Drug Designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of narcolepsy. The designation was granted on the plausible hypothesis that LumryzTM may be clinically superior to a formulation of sodium oxybate already approved by the FDA for the same indication.

The FDA granted a tentative approval to LumryzTM on July 18, 2022. Tentative approval indicates that LumryzTM has met all required quality, safety, and efficacy standards necessary for approval in the U.S. FDAs final approval decision for LumryzTM is pending expiration or other disposition of a patent listed in FDAs Orange Book that expires on June 17, 2023. Avadels market research suggests that Lumryz has the potential to command a meaningful share of the multi-billion-dollar narcolepsy treatment market.

We are currently taking steps to accelerate the final approval of LumryzTM earlier than the expiry of the patent in June 2023, however, in either case, we are gearing up for our full launch now. We cant wait to bring an innovative new treatment option to the narcolepsy community.

How We Work: At Avadel, patients are the reason we exist, and our employees are our greatest competitive advantage our secret sauce. The way we work is as important as the results we achieve. Our employees work together as ONE team and live our Values, which is what makes working at Avadel so special and why we will win for patients. Our ONE Team approach fosters a culture based on being relentless for patients, having confidence with humility, being courageous, taking insights to impact, and togetherness. In everything we do, we live the Avadel Values so we can be our best for our patients, our community and each other.

We are seeking team members who have a passion for making a meaningful impact in the lives of patients.
