Post the close of the quarter, Ocular Technologies, a company which we had recently acquired, announced positive results for Seciera Phase-3 trials demonstrating a rapid onset of action at 12 weeks of treatment for dry eye disease. We also made an announcement for acquiring Odomzo, a branded oncology product indicated for the treatment of adult patients with locally advanced basal cell carcinoma, a type of skin cancer. Odomzo is approved in 30 markets including the US, Europe and Australia.”
