Interim report for Q3 2018

Following a very strong second quarter, the third quarter was a bit calmer, which is natural. Total revenues were somewhat higher than last year primarily due to increased license revenues from our largest partner BD, while BIP sales were lower. It is therefore reassuring that, so far this year, BIP sales have risen by as much as 80 percent. Even though the third quarter was not as strong as the second, developments so far this year are very positive.
