Our profit margin was impacted during the period as a result of significant re-investment in the Canadian pharmaceutical business, including product development and new product launches, as we lay the foundations for future growth. We continue to invest and make progress on a number of long-term growth initiatives, including the recent launches of Tibella® and FeraMAX® Pd Therapeutic 150, as well as the upcoming launches of Combogesic® and a new women’s health product in-licensed last month. This product launch schedule is ambitious and we look forward to reporting on the continued progress of these exciting initiatives which will significantly expand our Canadian pharmaceutical business.”The CEO’s presentation on the Q3 2020 Results is available at the following link: www.biosyent.com/q3-20/.The Company’s Interim Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 will be posted on www.sedar.com on November 26, 2020.PDF Available: http://ml.globenewswire.com/Resource/Download/9598ab25-7b2e-4a7a-a348-4116961fc0c1PDF Available: http://ml.globenewswire.com/Resource/Download/fb1ea3c3-51c4-4e42-81af-b4318bbc5f88For a direct market quote for the TSX Venture Exchange and other Company financial information, please visit www.tmxmoney.com.
