Hospital Administrators Welcome Letter

June 15, 2012

Dear Hospital Administrator:

Today, Biomet announced that it has finalized its purchase of DePuy Trauma. We are excited about the opportunity to serve you in caring for your patients. On June 16, at 12 am Eastern time, Biomet will assume responsibility for servicing your account. Until that time, DePuy will continue to service your account.

Biomet has worked diligently and cooperatively with DePuy in preparation for transitioning their trauma business to Biomet, and is committed to providing you with the same high level of quality, service, and product availability to which you have become accustomed. You will be able to receive the same products in a timely fashion and held to the highest quality standards. Biomet will also honor pricing that is currently in effect.

We have great respect for the success that DePuy has enjoyed, and it is our intention to build upon that success by delivering best-in-class service and investing in product innovation to meet unmet patient needs.

We believe that this transaction is a great fit for patients, our customers, and Biomet. The acquired products will become a part of Biomet’s unique product organization--Sports, Extremities, and Trauma (SET)--designed to meet the needs of hospitals and surgeons addressing extremity injuries and disorders, from fractures and soft tissue tears to joint replacement. The addition of the DePuy trauma line greatly expands our product offering, and provides you and your patients with the broadest line of technologies designed to treat upper and lower extremity injuries and disorders.

The Q&A document that accompanies this letter provides additional information about Biomet’s acquisition.

If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, we encourage you to share them with your local Biomet sales representative, or to contact Biomet at 1-800-348-9500. Additional information may also be found at the following website:

Thank you for your support. We look forward to serving you in your efforts to provide excellent patient care.
