Endocyte, Inc's CEO Discusses Second Quarter Results - Earnings Call Transcript

These things often have some tough starts as you go along but they have just been outstanding to work with on all fronts.

Of course, we've also announced that we've named David Meek as our Commercial Head. He's key to the interaction with Merck. We interviewed a number of candidates. We couldn't be happier with landing David. He is kind of the ideal person for this position. He has significant oncology experience.

He's spent the last three or four years in Europe with Novartis and so he'll have great insight into the first launch, which will be in the EU. He's had multiple global marketing and senior leadership sales positions and he was just very – I mean, we're very lucky to get someone of his caliber to come to Endocyte. We look forward to introducing him to – in the future of calls.

This is consistent with our plan to continue to build the right capabilities on the board as we transition from development into commercial phase of the company and accelerate our pipeline.

So those are the updates and key milestones. I'll let Mike go over the financials and then we'll take questions.

And more importantly I think you'll see how that collaboration really puts us in a very strong position from a financial standpoint.
