Since succeeding Matt Emmens as Chief Executive Officer ('CEO') in June, I have been particularly keen on staying true to those aspects of our culture that brought us to our present state as one of the most effective biopharmaceutical companies in the world: the willingness to take measured risks; the courage to challenge one another; and the unyielding commitment to the patients, physicians, and communities we serve. We spent the time, in 2008, to look around and to project forward-to set the targets that will enable us to emerge, by 2015, as one of the most valuable specialty biopharmaceutical companies in the world. We committed to the underlying thesis that now forms the core of our corporate brand -that we strive to be as brave as the people we help.
