Fredrik Tiberg, President and CEO:
“Camurus had an excellent third quarter with continued high sales growth in Europe and Australia, launch of Brixadi™ in the US, and positive interim results from a long-term Phase 3 study of CAM2029 for the treatment of acromegaly. Our US licensing partner Braeburn initiated the launch of Brixadi for the treatment of opioid use disorder which resulted in both a significant milestone payment and the first royalty revenue for Camurus. Topline revenue growth during the quarter was close to 60 percent and as a result of the positive development, we raised the financial guidance for the full year 2023.”
