This presentation had been largely prepared prior to last week's announcement that animal health company, Zoetis had made a portfolio decision not to continue with the pursuit of Anatara's lead animal health asset, Detach(R). To that end, while a new slide has been incorporated to reflect the current state of affairs with Detach(R), this presentation does not reflect the new commercialisation strategy for Detach(R), which Anatara's Board and Management team is closely reviewing over the coming weeks.
CEO, Steve Lydeamore commented, "We have been working hard this year to communicate with investors as transparently as possible regarding our progress. Continuing with our planned presentations in Perth and the Gold Coast this month is in keeping with our desire to communicate openly.
While the Board does not have all the answers regarding the future of the Detach(R) program at this stage, we are focused on determining the next steps in a timely manner and will communicate those as soon as practical in the coming weeks. In the meantime, we look forward to engaging with investors to discuss what we currently know and discuss the work we're doing in the area of human gastrointestinal health through our dietary supplement program."
