First and foremost, I would like to express my sincere appreciation for your continued commitment and investment in Endo International plc. I recognize this has been a challenging year and I personally thank you for your patience as we seek to drive success through a sharpened focus on organic growth, while improving the lives of our valued patients.
I assumed the role of President and CEO in September 2016 when we were faced with a number of difficult challenges that affected the Specialty Pharmaceuticals and Generics industries. To overcome these challenges, we took a disciplined approach by first conducting a comprehensive strategic review and then taking several definitive actions to refocus the Company on our core businesses and assets – thereby transitioning the Company from one that grew primarily through acquisitions to one that, today, is focusing primarily on organic growth. With the Par integration complete, we are now unified, and positioned for success through a culture focused on smart product selection, operational execution, and continuous improvement. We are committed to meet the challenges of today’s healthcare environment and remain excited about our future.
