CEO Comments - Nikolaj Sørensen, President and CEO

Making progress

"The primary value drivers for Orexo are our ability to maintain our solid financial position, based on strong profit contributions from ZUBSOLV®, establishing a new profitable business segment in digital therapeutics and develop new pharmaceuticals. I am pleased to report we have made good progress in all of these areas in the first quarter. To maintain a strong financial base is essential for Orexo and we have had a strong focus on cost efficiency in the quarter. This prudent financial management has led to a positive EBITDA of SEK 2.8 million for the quarter and good financial results compared to last year."
