GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE ANNUAL MEETING
Why Did You Send Me this Proxy Statement?
We sent you this Proxy Statement and the enclosed proxy card because the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Amicus Therapeutics, Inc. (sometimes referred to as “we,” “us,” “our,” “Amicus” or the “Company”) is soliciting your proxy to vote at the 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”) and any adjournments of the meeting to be held in a virtual-only format online via webcast on Thursday, June 9, 2022 at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time. This Proxy Statement, along with the accompanying Notice of Annual Meeting of Stockholders, summarizes the purposes of the meeting and the information you need to know to vote at the Annual Meeting. You are invited to attend the Annual Meeting to vote on the proposals described in this Proxy Statement. You do not need to attend the Annual Meeting to vote your shares. Instead you may simply complete, date, sign and return the enclosed proxy card, or follow the instructions on the enclosed proxy card to submit your proxy by telephone or on the Internet.
We intend to mail this Proxy Statement, our 2021 Annual Report to Stockholders (including our Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal year 2021), the attached Notice of Annual Meeting and the enclosed proxy card to all stockholders entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting on or about April 26, 2022.

Who Can Vote?
Only stockholders of record at the close of business on April 14, 2022 are entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting. On this record date, there were 280,152,758 shares of our common stock (“Common Stock”) outstanding and entitled to vote. Each share of Common Stock is entitled to one vote. The Common Stock is our only outstanding class of voting stock.
Stockholder of Record: Shares Registered in Your Name
If, on April 14, 2022, your shares were registered directly in your name with our transfer agent, American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, then you are a stockholder of record. As a stockholder of record, you may vote at the Annual Meeting or vote by proxy. Whether or not you attend the Annual Meeting, we urge you to fill out and return the enclosed proxy card or follow the instructions on the proxy card or Notice of Internet Availability to submit your vote by telephone or Internet to ensure your vote is counted.
Beneficial Owner: Shares Registered in the Name of a Broker or Bank
If, on April 14, 2022, your shares were held, not in your name, but rather in an account at a brokerage firm, bank, dealer, or other similar organization, then you are the beneficial owner of shares held in “street name” and these proxy materials are being forwarded to you by that organization. The organization holding your account is considered the stockholder of record for purposes of voting at the Annual Meeting. As a beneficial owner, you have the right to direct your broker or other agent on how to vote the shares in your account. A number of brokers and banks enable beneficial owners to give voting instructions via telephone or the Internet. Please refer to the voting instructions provided by your bank or broker.
You are also invited to attend the Annual Meeting. However, since you are not the stockholder of record, please contact your broker, bank or other nominee for a 16-digit control number that will be required to gain access to the meeting. You will be able to vote your shares electronically during the Annual Meeting by following the instructions available on the meeting website.
