    DEAR FELLOW SHAREHOLDERS, In 2016, we reaffirmed our core strategy of growth through innovation and continued to advance our mission of consistently and repeatedly bringing important new medicines to patients in need. Turning science into important drugs is one of the most difficult activities Turning to our currently marketed medicines, we continue to bring EYLEA ® an organization can undertake. Despite thousands of biopharmaceutical (aflibercept) Injection, our market-leading therapy for the treatment of serious companies in the United States and billions in R&D spend, only 22 novel vision-threatening diseases, to more and more indicated patients. In 2016, drugs were approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in EYLEA global net sales were $5.2 billion, including $3.3 billion in U.S. net 2016. Of these, only eight were first in class, and even fewer targeted sales. We continue to work to improve outcomes in serious retinal diseases major diseases affecting millions of people. With this background, it is quite and have an ongoing Phase 3 trial with EYLEA in diabetic retinopathy, as well a testament to the Regeneron team that, by the end of 2017, we anticipate as a combination program evaluating EYLEA co-formulated with nesvacumab, having five new medicines approved since 2011, all of which are first- or an investigational ANG-2 antibody. second-in-class therapies. Praluent® (alirocumab) Injection, our therapy for uncontrolled LDL cholesterol, We laid important groundwork last year that has positioned us for a demonstrated gradual sales growth in 2016, reaching $116 million in global potentially transformational year in 2017, with two important new drug net sales. This growth was hampered by significant launches. Dupixent® (dupilumab) Injection was approved on March 28, access challenges and a desire from payers 2017, by the FDA and the launch is ongoing.

We continue to prioritize ongoing investment in technology and innovation, which we believe will position us to bring needed new medicines to patients for many years to come. One of these efforts is the Regeneron Genetics Center We continue to prioritize (RGC), which in just a little over three years after launch has sequenced more than 150,000 consented individuals. In March 2017, the RGC embarked on an ongoing investment in technology important collaboration in the United Kingdom with the goal of sequencing all and innovation, which we believe will the participants in the UK Biobank, the world’s most comprehensive position us to bring needed new medicines health resource, which includes samples and medical records from to patients for many years to come. 500,000 volunteer participants.

In 2016, a District Court jury ruled Praluent patient against us, upholding the validity of Amgen’s patents. In early 2017, the District Court granted a permanent injunction requested by Amgen, preventing the marketing, selling, or commercial manufacturing of Praluent in the United States. We have appealed both of these decisions to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, which hears all biopharmaceutical patent litigation appeals, and the court has stayed (suspended) the permanent injunction for Praluent that was granted by the District Court, pending appeal. This stay ensures that Praluent will continue to be available to patients during the ongoing appeal process. We strongly believe that the controlling law and facts support our position that Amgen’s asserted patent claims are invalid. We look forward to pursuing our appeal over the coming months. < < M ENMENU U > > 2016 ANNUAL REPORT 9

    DUPIXENT® (DUPILUMAB) INJECTION First-in-class monoclonal antibody that treats moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis (AD) by blocking IL-4 and IL-13, two key cytokines involved in allergic diseases. Dupixent has been approved in the United States and is under regulatory review in the European Union for the treatment of atopic dermatitis (AD). It is also being studied in other allergic conditions including asthma, nasal polyps, and eosinophilic esophagitis. “I so appreciate all In March of 2017, Dupixent was approved by the FDA for the treatment of moderate-to-severe AD in adults whose disease is not adequately controlled with topical prescription therapies or for whom those therapies are not advisable. Dupixent can be used with the researchers or without topical corticosteroids. With our collaborator Sanofi, we launched the product to the commercial market shortly following who worked on approval. We are excited to provide this first-in-class medicine to adult patients who, up until the approval of Dupixent, had no bringing Dupixent FDA-approved biologic therapies to treat their uncontrolled moderate-to-severe AD.

    IMMUNO-ONCOLOGY Our portfolio in this rapidly developing field grew in 2016, through both new product candidates and new indications for existing candidates, supported by our ongoing collaboration with Sanofi. Our growing clinical-stage immuno-oncology pipeline now includes three antibodies: a PD-1 inhibitor, a CD20xCD3 bi-specific antibody, and an antibody to LAG3. In 2016, we presented Phase 1 data from our PD-1 program, which helped us determine the therapeutic dose for our ongoing, potentially pivotal Phase 2 trial in cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma. This study is currently enrolling patients. In 2017, we plan to initiate a Phase 3 study in non-small cell lung cancer, as well as a potentially pivotal study in basal cell carcinoma. We also presented interim data from our CD20xCD3 bi-specific program in 2016. The CD20xCD3 antibody is currently in clinical trials both as a monotherapy and as a combination therapy with our PD-1 antibody. We are also conducting studies of REGN3767, our antibody to LAG3, both as a monotherapy and as a combination therapy with our PD-1 antibody. A number of additional immuno-oncology antibodies are expected to enter the clinic in 2017 and 2018, and we continue to pursue business development opportunities with novel immuno-oncology approaches that have potential to be combined with antibodies. < < M ENMENU U > > 2016 ANNUAL REPORT 16

    RARE DISEASES We are expanding our research into rare diseases, where serious unmet medical needs provide the opportunity to deliver on our mission of turning science into life-changing medicine. Our most clinically advanced rare disease antibody, evinacumab, an antibody to Angptl-3, is in clinical development for the treatment of homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH), which is the most severe form of hypercholesterolemia. Patients with this disease are at a significantly higher risk of serious cardiac events, including heart attack and stroke. In the first half of 2016, we presented positive interim data from a Phase 2 proof-of-concept study of evinacumab in patients with HoFH. We also entered REGN2477, our antibody to Activin A, into clinical development for the treatment of fibroplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP). FOP is a progressive, severely disabling, and ultimately fatal disease in which muscles, ligaments, tendons, and other connective tissues are transformed into bone. We entered the drug into a Phase 1 study in healthy volunteers in 2016, and expect to move into a Phase 2 trial in 2017. We also initiated a Phase 1 study of REGN2477 in combination with REGN1033, our antibody to GDF8, in 2016. REGN2477 has been granted orphan drug designation status by the FDA. In pre-clinical development we have a number of indications and programs identified, including transthyretin-related amyloidosis (TTR), juvenile X-Linked retinoschisis, and a C5 complement inhibitor for the treatment of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH). We are working to advance these programs further in 2017. < < M ENMENU U > > 2016 ANNUAL REPORT 17

    RAPID RESPONSE + INFECTIOUS DISEASE Regeneron’s rapid response capabilities leverage our core VelociSuite ® technologies to significantly compress the time required for discovery and pre-clinical validation of potential treatments for emerging infectious diseases. In 2016, work continued on our antibodies to the Ebola virus (REGN3470-3471-3479), where we began a Phase 1 study in healthy volunteers in the first half of 2016, and the antibody was granted orphan designation status by the FDA. This program is in development with the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. In pre-clinical development, we also have antibodies to Middle Eastern respiratory virus (MERS) and the Zika virus. < < M ENMENU U > > 2016 ANNUAL REPORT 18

    REGENERON GENETICS CENTER The Regeneron Genetics Center (RGC) is one of the world’s largest genetic sequencing initiatives, providing important insights into target identification and clinical development. The Regeneron Genetics Center (RGC) is a leader in human genetics research. Our RGC scientists have sequenced more than 150,000 consented individuals, entered into more than 30 academic collaborations, and have continuously supported our clinical development efforts. We expect these efforts to help us discover new targets, indications and biomarkers that could better predict drug response, and help de-risk the process of bringing new medicines into the clinic. We ended 2016 with two simultaneous publications in Science, one of which provided the first overall description of the Geisinger-Regeneron Genetics Center (RGC) collaboration known as DiscovEHR, and the other demonstrated the underdiagnosis and undertreatment of familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) through pairing genetic variants causing FH with their de-identified medical histories. In March 2017, we announced a major new RGC initiative with UK Biobank and GSK, in which we will be sequencing 500,000 individuals in the UK Biobank’s health resource. We expect new and important publications and continued RGC progress in 2017. < < M ENMENU U > > 2016 ANNUAL REPORT 19

    SUPPORTING PATIENT COMMUNITIES Regeneron is committed to supporting patients with serious diseases and ensuring that patients are able to access the medicines they need. BRINGING ATTENTION TO A DEBILITATING DISEASE OUR MEDICINES: The Understand AD national initiative aims to increase awareness and understanding of atopic dermatitis (AD), in ENSURING ACCESS partnership with the National Eczema Association (NEA) and the Dermatology Nurses’ Association (DNA). The most common form of eczema, AD is a chronic inflammatory disease with symptoms often appearing as a rash AND EDUCATION on the skin. The initiative offers a glimpse into the daily struggle of life with AD and connects people to helpful resources such as the NEA. EDUCATION & AWARENESS FOR CHOLESTEROL MANAGEMENT In 2016, Regeneron and Sanofi committed to support the American Heart Association’s cholesterol education program, Check.Change.Control.Cholesterol, which aims to drive millions of Americans to better cholesterol management. The three-year program will engage patients, caregivers and healthcare practitioners, and provide valuable educational resources to communities across the country. PARTNERING TO FIGHT A RARE DISEASE Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) is an exceedingly rare disease in which bone forms in the muscle and connective tissue. Over time, people living with FOP gradually lose the ability to move and even breathe as their rib cage loses flexibility. When Regeneron discovered that the protein Activin-A played a role in triggering FOP, we made it a priority to reach out to the small but strong FOP community to understand their daily struggles and treatment expectations. Since then, organizations such as the International Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva Association (IFOPA) and the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD) have been integral to informing the development of our investigational candidate REGN2477 and to helping us keep patient needs front and center in our efforts. We’ve also given back to the FOP community with grants and by sharing our genetically modified FOP mouse model with other scientists to advance basic and translational research. Through these mutually supportive relationships, we have come together with the FOP community to fight this devastating disease. < < M ENMENU U > > 2016 ANNUAL REPORT 26
