Correction: Veloxis Pharmaceuticals Announces Financial Results for the First Three Months of 2018
Correction: In the company release titled “Veloxis Pharmaceuticals Announces Financial Results for the First Three Months of 2018” issued 14-May-2018, the Outlook for 2018 section should read “Veloxis maintains its 2018 outlook of revenues to be in the range of USD 32 — 40 million and operating loss before accounting for stock compensation in the range of USD 6 — 12 million.” The original release erroneously stated that operating loss before accounting for stock compensation would be in the range of USD 4 — 10 million.
