Thanks to the successful capital increase and the renewed financial commitment of our main shareholder dievini, not only is the clinical development work with HDP-101 secured until mid-2021, but we can also nominate the next development candidates from our portfolio and advance the preclinical work. On behalf of the Management Board, I would like to thank the shareholders of Heidelberg Pharma AG for their trust in our company and their long-standing support."
