Kevin Gorman – President and CEO
Thank you very much and thank you to Citibank of giving us the opportunity to present here today. Before I get started, I put up our safe harbor statement here and I direct you to our recent SEC filings, our 10-K, we'll be making forward-looking statements throughout this presentation and that would show you a detailed level of the risk factors for the company.
2012 is going to be a very event driven year for us. We're going to have four Phase II clinical trials reading out, three of them are going to be in our two lead programs. There's going to be a Phase II reading out at the end of the year and our uterine fibroids program and then in about three weeks we anticipate releasing the results of our Phase II clinical trial in VMAT2 in schizophrenic patients. That's a two week long study. We'll then be starting up two Phase IIB studies this year in our VMAT2. We'll then be starting up two Phase II b studies this in our VMAT2 program large Phase IIB I one schizophrenic patients that will start up mid-year and we'll also read out at year end a second Phase II will be starting up in Tardive Dyskinesia but this time in bipolar and depressed patients, that will read out in approximately Q1 of next year. And then next year we will then have our Phase II meeting with the FDA and start our Phase III program in Tardive Dyskinesia.
