Roger Hawley

Thank you Catherine, and thanks to everyone for joining us today for our second quarter 2012 conference call. The Zogenix team has been very active and we’re also very excited about our future. We’ve made solid progress in each of our product programs and in financing our operations to build the value of the company. We’ve reached several significant product-related milestones that enhance the long-term outlook for our business.

First, we entered into an exclusive co-promotion agreement for SUMAVEL with Mallinckrodt, the consumer division of Covidien. Second, we received confirmation from the FDA that they have accepted our NDA for review of our lead product candidate, Zohydro ER with a PDUFA date of March 1, 2013. Third, we’ve initiated our Relday Phase 1 Safety and PK study, and fourth, we’re launching our new DosePro technology co-marketing campaign with Battelle.

We also recently raised net proceeds of $65.5 million in an equity offering that gives us the resources to first repay our term debt and also to continue driving the growth of SUMAVEL DosePro with neurologists, headache specialists, and high prescribing physicians through our Zogenix sales team of 95 representatives and we’ll be supporting the re-launch with our new partner, Mallinckrodt.
