"We look forward to updating our shareholders about the recent progress made by our Company as well as answering questions regarding the very strong data presented at the ASCO conference this past weekend," said Mr. Hobbs. "While we believe the recent decline in the value of our shares is unfortunate and an overreaction, the fundamental outlook for our company remains strong. We believe we have excellent clinical data, significant market opportunity and a strong balance sheet with enough cash to execute our current business plan for at least the next 12 months. In addition, we continue to pursue negotiations with potential partners for international marketing rights for the Delcath PHP system."
