|BUSINESS AND ORGANIZATION||BUSINESS AND ORGANIZATION
We are a diversified healthcare company that seeks to establish industry-leading positions in large and rapidly growing medical markets. Our diagnostics business includes BioReference Laboratories, Inc. (“BioReference”), one of the nation’s largest full service laboratories with a core genetic testing business and an almost 300-person sales and marketing team to drive growth and leverage new products, including the 4Kscore test. Our pharmaceutical business features Rayaldee, a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) approved treatment for secondary hyperparathyroidism (“SHPT”) in adults with stage 3 or 4 chronic kidney disease (“CKD”) and vitamin D insufficiency (launched in November 2016) and a pipeline of products in various stages of development. Our leading product in development is Somatrogon (hGH-CTP), a once-weekly human growth hormone for which we have partnered with Pfizer, Inc. (“Pfizer”) and successfully completed a phase 3 study in August 2019, and for which the FDA has accepted the initial Biologics License Application (“BLA”) for filing and we have submitted a New Drug Application (an “NDA”) with the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare in Japan. We are incorporated in Delaware, and our principal executive offices are located in leased offices in Miami, Florida.
Through BioReference, we provide laboratory testing services, primarily to customers in the larger metropolitan areas in New York, New Jersey, Florida, Texas, Maryland, California, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Washington, DC, Illinois and Massachusetts, as well as to customers in a number of other states. We offer a comprehensive test menu of clinical diagnostics for blood, urine and tissue analysis. This includes hematology, clinical chemistry, immunoassay, infectious diseases, serology, hormones, and toxicology assays, as well as Pap smear, anatomic pathology (biopsies) and other types of tissue analysis. We market our laboratory testing services directly to physicians, geneticists, hospitals, clinics, correctional and other health facilities.
We operate established pharmaceutical platforms in Ireland, Chile, Spain, and Mexico, which are generating revenue and from which we expect to generate positive cash flow and facilitate future market entry for our products currently in development. In addition, we have a development and commercial supply pharmaceutical company and a global supply chain operation and holding company in Ireland. We own a specialty active pharmaceutical ingredients (“APIs”) manufacturer in Israel, which we expect will facilitate the development of our pipeline of molecules and compounds for our proprietary molecular diagnostic and therapeutic products.
Our research and development activities are primarily performed at facilities in Woburn, MA, Waterford, Ireland, Kiryat Gat, Israel, and Barcelona, Spain.
