Tim Sawyer

Thank you, Daniel. Good morning, everybody. I'm Tim Sawyer, President and CEO of Teligent, and I'm joined this morning by our Chief Financial Officer, Damian Finio.

First and most importantly, I'm happy to report that Teligent employees around the world and particularly those in Buena, New Jersey, are still safe and sound. Although, we've had a handful of employees test positive for COVID-19, they were not exposed to the virus on company premises. And because of safety procedures, we put in place at the onset of the pandemic, none of our facilities were impacted nor their colleagues infected. Each of these employees have been thankfully managing their symptoms at home. We continue to remain open at all Company locations and will be as long as permitted by local authorities and conditions remain safe for our employees to continue manufacturing pharmaceutical products for the patients that need them. All non-production, quality or R&D employees continue to work from home in accordance with state and local guidelines.

As a consequence of COVID-19, dermatology visits are still down versus pre-pandemic levels. But as states and municipalities continue to reopen, we began to see an uptick in second quarter patient demand. Current estimates show the market has returned to approximately 80% of pre-pandemic levels at least for now. We remain cautiously optimistic, as we have all learned that this situation can change very rapidly.
