While delivering strong financial results, we continue to invest inour emerging late stage R&D pipeline.Our ADHD portfolio is performing very well in a growing global market and wesee further growth going forward. The positive opinion received from theEuropean regulators for ELVANSE is a significant milestone and we're nowpreparing for country launches in some of the largest markets in Europe. Allour rare disease treatments continue to grow and we saw particularly strongperformance from FIRAZYR in its first full year in the US market. We advancedour plans for developing our Regenerative Medicine business with theacquisition of VASCUGEL and the approval of DERMAGRAFT in Canada.Our late stage R&D pipeline now holds the prospect of future growth from LDX(the active ingredient in VYVANSE) in major depressive disorder, binge eatingdisorder and negative symptoms of schizophrenia. Our intrathecal programs arealso progressing well as we plan the next clinical trials for Hunter CNS andSanfilippo A and continue to enrol MLD patients into the ongoing Phase 1/2trial. A phase 2b study of SPD602, our iron chelating product, is underway andheadline results are expected later this year.We've completed a number of in-licensing deals and acquisitions in 2012,bringing us new technology platforms in rare diseases, hematology and a rangeof early stage and exciting differentiated treatments.We've put in place our leadership succession plan. Dr. Flemming Ørnskov joinedus at the beginning of January and is familiarising himself with the businessbefore he assumes the role of CEO at the end of April. His considerablepharmaceutical and international experience will benefit Shire going forward.Today we announce that Sylvie Gregoire, President of our HGT business, hasdecided to leave Shire at the end of March, after five years. We're gratefulfor her significant contributions to the growth of Shire through establishingHGT as a leader in rare diseases.Shire is in great shape, with the current business performing well, a promisingpipeline of new growth opportunities, and the strategy in place to deliver anexciting future. As we look forward to the year ahead, we expect our financialresults to show further growth in line with current consensus earningsexpectations for 2013(1)."
