Sarepta Therapeutics (NASDAQ: SRPT) reported Q3 EPS of ($0.95), $0.37 better than the analyst estimate of ($1.32).

“We are thrilled that the first patient has been infused with EXONDYS 51. We are pleased with the early stages of the launch and that multiple insurance carriers are providing coverage for patients to have access to EXONDYS 51. We plan on providing a corporate update at the 35th Annual JP Morgan Healthcare Conference, after EXONDYS 51 has been available for a full quarter,” said Edward Kaye, Sarepta’s chief executive officer.

“We believe our recent financing puts us in a strong financial position to execute on both our internal and external clinical development programs and global manufacturing development plans. We continue to evaluate the sale of the priority review voucher as a potential source of non-dilutive financing to help support these efforts and advance potential therapies for patients with DMD,” said Sandy Mahatme, Sarepta’s chief financial officer.
