Vipin K. Garg, Ph.D., president and CEO of Altimmune, said this about the ALT stock earnings report.
“2019 was a productive year for the Company with the acquisition of ALT-801, a supplemental award for the development of NasoShield from BARDA, and the advancement of ALT-702 as a preclinical program. However, we all find ourselves in a very different world in 2020 with the COVID-19 global pandemic causing substantial disruption to many of our lives.”
The Altimmune earnings report doesn’t include its outlook for fiscal 2020, but that’s not much of a surprise at this point. Many companies are withholding their guidance in light of the coronavirus from China.
