CEO Comments in brief: Creating a stable financial platform

"I am pleased to report a significant improvement in our financial results with an EBITDA increasing SEK 57 million and amounted to SEK 16 million (-41). In addition to less non-repeating activities, it is driven by efficiency improvements and cost control. Improving our financial results was a cornerstone of successfully refinancing our corporate bond in the quarter, and we gained strong interest from investors with close to 100 percent oversubscription. Our R&D projects continue to show progress, although OX124 is likely to require a longer review than the original PDUFA date in July based on recent request for additional documentation. Our ambition remains to launch the product in late 2024 or early 2025."
