Breaking down the balance sheet of Nuvo Research (TSX:NRI)

Canadian Stock News Cantech

Mississauga’s Nuvo Research, which has developed an osteoarthritis pain-killing cream that is absorbed through the skin, saw its revenues leap on a milestone payment. Upon receiving FDA approval, Nuvo received $15-million payment from its marketing partner, Covidien. Ultimately the Company received $27.3-million in a single quarter when licensing payments were added to the mix. Nuvo management has taken the approval to market of Pennsaid, the commercial name of the treatment, as a opportunity to diversify; last December they shuffled management around to put more resources behind the development of its autoimmune drug platform.
