This is the first of what we anticipate will be many approvals for GeoPharma. We continue to be enthusiastic about our drug pipeline which holds 12 ANDAs and other drug products in various stages of development and the approval process. It is our hope to receive additional approvals by the end of our fiscal year on other drugs, as well as a production approval of our dedicated 100,000 Sq. Ft.
