Furthermore, I would personally like to thank all of our shareholders for their patience in this process. We realize this delay may have eroded shareholder confidence, however, based on the extensive review by FINRA, we are optimistic that their approval may be given soon, at which time we will inform shareholders immediately. I would like to thank our shareholders on behalf of Immune and myself for standing behind us as we continue to work in your interests with a commitment to improving shareholder value and bringing lifesaving drugs to the market."
