CEO statement
Camurus continued to deliver strong results in the fourth quarter of 2020. Net sales increased by 201%, and product sales by 243% compared to Q4 2019. The expansion of the Buvidal market continued with price and reimbursement approvals in Spain, regulatory approval in Switzerland, regulatory approval applications in Kuwait, the UAE and Saudi Arabia, while at the end of the quarter, the anticipated approval of Brixadi in the US was delayed when Braeburn received a Complete Response Letter from the FDA. Our product development for other chronic conditions intensified, with Phase 3 programs for CAM2029 in acromegaly and neuroendocrine tumors advancing according to plan, and the initiation of treatment of patients in new clinical studies of CAM2029 and CAM2043.
