manufacturing which requires prolonged periods of cell culturing, mRNA drug substance production is a cell-free process that involves linearization of plasmid DNA(pDNA), mixing it with enzymes and nucleotides to allow for its transcription into mRNA, and mRNA capping, etc.※ Samsung Biologics will add mRNA vaccine DS production capability to its existing facility by the first half of 2022. Manufacturing Process mRNA production begins with in-vitro transcription, where the linearized pDNA is synthesized to form mRNA in a reactor. Then, the mRNA is purified in steps involving chromatography and ultrafiltration(UF)/diafiltration(DF) to prepare for the formulation stage. Finally, the purified mRNA is encapsulated into Lipid Nanoparticles (LNP) through precise pump mixing technology to prevent degradation and to allow for in vivo delivery. Storage Because a mRNA is susceptible to degradation upon changing temperatures, it is subject to strict storage conditions. Samsung Biologics is able to meet such challenges though its upright and walk-in storage systems with temperature as low as -70°C as needed How a mRNA vaccine is made DNA Enzymes + Buffers + Nucleotides = mRNA mRNA+LNP Drug product Why Samsung Biologics?

On a separated basis, Samsung Biologics recorded KRW 637B (+ 27% YoY) in revenue and KRW 254B (+48% YoY) in operating profit. We continued to achieve solid YoY revenue growth over 14 consecutive quarters since the COVID outbreak in 2020 and are proud to announce that our business is progressing well in line with the annual revenue guidance of 15-20% growth for 2023, demonstrating our top-notch management execution, successful business performance, and our competitive advantage as a world class CDMO. I am also pleased to share that thanks to our robust sales activities, 13 of the top 20 global pharmas are now Samsung Biologics' clients, resulting in Plants 1, 2, and 3 all running at full capacity and Plant 4's 240kL capacity being fully operational since June 1. Our total cumulative CMO contracts now surpass USD 10B, and we continue to expand partnerships with global pharmas leveraging our CDO capabilities and platforms. Also, our subsidiary Samsung Bioepis has been contributing to top-line growth with the launch of EPYSQLITM (SB12), a biosimilar of Soliris, in the EU market after obtaining the final approval from European Commission, and a biosimilar of Humira named HADLIMATM (SB5), in the US in July. Full operation of Plant 4 dubbed the 'SUPER PLANT', and acceleration of Plant 5's construction timeline by 5 months We began operation of the 60KL portion of Plant 4 last October and unlocked the remaining 180KL portion this June (240KL in total). Our total capacity of 604kL across Bio Campus I is now fully available to support clients at multiple scales and on schedule as we had planned from the very beginning. Our sales activities targeted for P4 have led us to the execution of supply contracts for 16 products with 10 clients, and on-going contract negotiations with 30 clients for 46 products. Based on robust demand from clients, we announced in March the construction of Plant 5 which will be operationally ready by April 2025, about 24 months from groundbreaking and 5 months earlier than the original plan. Succe
manufacturing facilities announced (Jan.) • Strategic investment in Araris Biotech via Life Science Fund Bioepis • Launching of Lucentis biosimilar (SB11) in GER, UK, CA (Mar.) • Positive CHMP Opinion received for Soliris biosimilar (SB12) • Upcoming US launching of Humira Biosimilar (SB5) (Compertitive edge gained by high & low-concentration, prefilled syringe and auto-injector, etc.) Samsung Biologics announced our first quarter financial results, and we are pleased to report quarterly financial performance with consolidated revenue of 720.9 billion won up by 41% YoY and an operating profit of 191.7 billion won up by 9% YoY. Since the beginning of the COVID19 pandemic, sales have increased year on year for 13 consecutive quarters, spurred by significant growth in the CMO business. Based on these solid financial results, we are revising our guidance for our annual revenue growth rate from 10-15%, which we announced this January, to 15%-20% for year 2023. Samsung Biologics has been operating its existing Plants 1 through 3 at full capacity while maximizing operational efficiency and maintaining steady and stable manufacturing output. As a result, we secured CMO contracts with global big pharmas including GSK, Pfizer, and Eli Lilly, to name a few, totaling roughly KRW 500 billion, bringing the total accumulated CMO contract amount to approximately USD 9.9 billion (KRW 13 trillion). We have also been able to enter into a partnership with a large pharmaceutical company in our CDO business and continued to build on our solid track record. Samsung Bioepis, a wholly owned subsidiary of ours since April 2022, has also contributed to our swift top-line growth by broadening revenue streams from the expansion of Lucentis biosimilar (SB11) sales in the United States, and other newly launched markets such as Germany, UK and Canada. Simultaneously, in line with the company's three-dimensional growth strategy, Samsung Biologics continues to augment our differentiated "Super Gap" CDMO competitive edge through expansions in our capacity, geographic presence, and business portfolio. Capacity Expansion | Announcement of investment in Bio Campus II, with the construction of Plant 5 Plant 4 construction has been fully on track, with its 60,000L portion going operational in October last year, and the remaining 180,000L to go live in June of this year. We have already sealed a number of large-scale manufacturing contracts with Plant 4, signing 9 clients on 12 products, and are actively negotiating with 29 additional clients on 44 products. The robust demand seen for outsourced biopharmaceutical manufacturing convinced us that the time has come to proac- tively make this investment as part of our expansion strategy in order to further expand our global CMO market leadership. In this regard, we have decided to invest 1.98 trillion won ($1.51 billion) in the construction of our fifth facility in Bio Campus II, which will be located on a 96,000-square-meter plot. This new Plant 5, with a capacity of 180,000L, will break ground in the first half of this year and expected to complete construction and commence operations in September 2025. Plant 5 will maximize Samsung Biologics' operational efficiency by adopting the company's standardized facility design, allowing the company to leverage existing capabilities, expertise, and know-how acquired through experience at Plants 1 through 4, while introducing advanced digitalization and automation technologies. With Plant 5 construction, Samsung Biologics will further accelerate our capacity growth and leadership with Bio Campus II. Geographic Expansion | Regional sales office opening in New Jersey, USA In keeping with the company's ambitions for global expansion, Samsung Biologics has been strengthening our footprint in the United States by establishing a presence in major cit
manufacturing facilities at 604KL. With all three plants operating at full capacity, Samsung Biologics recognized the need for additional capacity development and proactively purchased a plot of land 30% larger than the existing Bio Campus I to lay the groundwork for a large-scale bio complex for future growth. Plant 4 began partial operations in Oct. 2022, and we have secured 11 large-scale manufacturing contracts with 8 global biopharmaceutical companies and are actively negotiating an additional 34 contracts with 26 global major pharmaceutical companies. Based on such strong demand on the horizon, we decided to build our fifth facility even before Plant 4 was fully operational in order to meet our clients' needs in a timely manner. Plant 5 will be the first plant to be housed in Bio Campus II, with a capacity of 180KL, identical to Plant 4's phase 2 large scale design. Bio Campus II - conceptual rendering Plant 5 Construction Plan • Location: Bio Campus II in Songdo, Incheon (Approx. 35.7 million square meters) • Capacity: 180KL (Approx. 9.5 million square meters) • Construction Period (Target): Groundbreaking in Mar. 2023; CGMP ready by Sep. 2025 Expected CAPEX: Approx. KRW 1.98 trillion (incl. production support and utility facilities) With Plant 5, we will integrate simplified and standardized design and processes of our existing plants to save construction time and cost, in addition to optimizing operations. Simultaneously, we aim to introduce even greater competitive advantage and service perfection by incorporating cutting-edge technologies including automated equipment and systems and energy efficiency, while leveraging our deep expertise and know-how gained from the operation of our Bio Campus I plants 1, 2, 3, and 4. Using Plant 5 as a starting point, Samsung Biologics will invest approximately KRW 7 trillion in the development of Bio Campus II, which will include the construction of three additional large-scale mAb manufacturing facilities as well as an Open Innovation center to promote and foster innovative biotechnologies. Furthermore, we will continue to implement various inorganic strategies and pursue portfolio and geographic expansion in order to keep our commitment to being a top-tier biopharmaceutical company. As always, your continuous faith and support in us is greatly appreciated. Sincerely, March 17, 2023 President & CEO John Rim

manufacturing organization (CDMO), today hosted its inaugural Suppliers ESG Day, both at its Songdo headquarters and online, to share environmental, social, and governance (ESG) strategies and drive collective action to decarbonize. The company invited supplier companies and external ESG specialists to discuss ESG-related requirements and recommendations as well as share successful case studies. “Since a majority of healthcare emissions are created in the manufacturing supply chains, it is critical for us to work together at every level to become greener and more circular,” said John Rim, CEO and President of Samsung Biologics. “By connecting our suppliers with resources to help them assess their performance and opportunities to go beyond carbon emissions reductions, we are building a more transparent and responsible value chain.” Samsung Biologics has been conducting ESG assessments with its suppliers to minimize potential social and ethical risks, build a stable network, and establish green strategies towards decarbonization. Earlier this year, the company and members of the Sustainable Markets Initiative’s Health Systems Task Force—a public-private partnership launched at COP26 to accelerate the decarbonization of health systems—called on suppliers to commit to joint, minimum climate and sustainability targets, which aim to address emissions across the value chain and reduce the complexity of multiple asks. The company today also released its second report aligned to the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). The report serves the company’s commitment to providing transparency on its approach to managing climate-related risks and opportunities across the business. “We are pleased to share our progress towards our emissions reduction targets and the responsible business practices we are implementing to mitigate climate change risks,” said Rim. “We will continue to amplify our efforts to achieve our carbon ambition, while continuing to support our clients to deliver therapies to millions of patients worldwide.” Highlights from the 2023 report include:· Establishing new milestones to achieve net zero by 2050 and engaging suppliers to reduce their direct emissions · Prioritizing Samsung Biologics’ sustainable leadership as an active member of the Sustainable Markets Initiative and champion for the Supply Chains Working Group; First CDMO to receive the SMI’s Terra Carta Seal· Joining the Sustainable Aviation Buyers Alliance to help reduce emissions through investment in Sustainable Aviation Fuel The full text of the report is available here.
