MOBERG DERMA BECOMES MOBERG PHARMA
Moberg Derma AB (OMX: MOB) announced today that the Swedish Companies Registration Office has granted the company's application for a name change to Moberg Pharma AB (publ), in accordance with the decision of the AGM on 23 April 2013.
The rationale for the name change is that the business, through the acquisition of Alterna LLC (renamed Moberg Pharma North America LLC), encompasses more than only skin conditions. However, skin conditions and topical drug delivery will remain core areas of the company.
"The name change is a natural step in the company's development. Today, our activities cover other areas than skin conditions and as we continue to build a different kind of pharmaceutical company, we expect to operate in additional therapeutic areas," said Peter Wolpert, CEO of Moberg Pharma.
Updated contact details and website address are provided below. The company's shares will continue to trade under the ticker symbol MOB on the NASDAQ OMX Nordic Exchange Stockholm.
