AGM Statement and Result of AGM
By @ 14:08 :: 178 Views :: 2016

 

24 June 2016

 

At the AGM held earlier today it was announced that revenues from the core biomarker services activities remained buoyant in the first half with a strong order book, including repeat business, and a developing pipeline. TMT revenue growth has continued into 2016 and TMT was highly visible at the recent meeting of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry. The growing recognition of tau as a therapeutic target in Alzheimer’s disease should increase interest in new treatments which could favourably affect our compounds targeting CK1d in the tau pathway. We are confident that the business remains on track in 2016 to deliver a significant increase in revenues.
