After the end of Q3, we concluded a financing transaction that secured our financial condition on the eve of our completion of two pivotal Phase 3 trials. We raised $7.56 million of gross proceeds from the sale of Common Shares, Pre-funded Warrants and Warrants in a registered direct offering on November 1, 2016. Also between September 14, 2016 and October 14, 2016, we raised about $2.3 million of gross proceeds from the sale of 580,912 Common Shares following our ATM program. Since October 14, 2016, our ATM program has not been utilized. Therefore, we believe we have the funds necessary to complete our two pivotal clinical trials, to report top-line results on both and to file a New Drug Application for Macrilen™ in the first half of 2017, if the results of the trial warrant doing so. While we will need to raise additional funds before we are able to bring a product to market, we expect that reporting favorable top-line results from one or both of our clinical trials will permit us to do so on favorable terms.”
