Robyn Karnauskas – Deutsche Bank Securities, Inc.

Good afternoon, thanks for joining us this afternoon. Next, we have Avanir. And speaking for Avanir, we have Keith Katkin, the President and CEO. For those of you listening on the webcast, if you have questions, we’d like to ask them anonymously, you can go to our website [viorn.com/hz] and ask questions anonymously we will read them here.

With that, I will turn it over to Keith.

Keith A. Katkin

Thanks, Robyn. And good afternoon everyone. Thank you for joining us for the Avanir corporate presentation. I would like to start with the forward-looking statements, as I will be making statements that are forward-looking in nature. I’d encourage everyone to visit our publically available documents on the SEC website or on the Avanir website as well.

So Avanir is a specialty biopharmaceutical company focused on CNS therapies. And our lead product is NUEDEXTA, as the first and only FDA approved therapy for the treatment of pseudobulbar affect. Pseudobulbar affect is a very large market with a high unmet medical need, and I go into a little more detail on PBA later in the presentation.

And importantly from a mechanistic perspective, NUEDEXTA is an NMDA receptor antagonist and a sigma-1 agonist, a very well known and well understood mechanism of action, which we believe supports the potential use of NUEDEXTA in a number of other additional indications.
