Richard Piazza in the press release. “We are thrilled to advance this transaction to signing and expect to complete the transaction in the first half of 2024, subject to the timing of our information statement and the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. We believe strongly that Telix is the right partner to advance Samarium-153-DOTMP through clinical trials and give this important technology the best chance to improve the lives of patients suffering from bone cancer. We are equally excited for our shareholders, as we believe this is a great outcome for their investments.”
