Dr Christian Behrenbruch, Group Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director commented on the result:
"This year Telix has demonstrated it can effectively identify, develop and commercialise assets. This included the delivery of a complex Phase III trial and scale-up of the business to support the highly successful launch of our first commercial product, Illuccix. These achievements, along with a continued focus on expenditure control, have seen us finish 2022 in a strong financial position with a healthy cash balance and a growing revenue stream. Our commitment to financial stewardship is enabling us to invest our earnings to fund the late-stage programs in our pipeline, while transitioning to cash flow positive. Ultimately this will deliver further benefits to patients and shareholders.
"Along with the launch of Illuccix, the positive readout of our Phase III ZIRCON study of our kidney cancer imaging agent, TLX250-CDx was a major highlight of 2022. We look forward to building on this strong foundation in 2023 as we prepare regulatory filings for two imaging agents for kidney and brain cancer and continue to advance the late-stage therapy programs in prostate, kidney and brain cancer."
