“In fiscal 2009, we remain committed to the turn-around of our pharmaceutical supply chain business, as we continue to strengthen our medical supply chain business, invest in an innovative pipeline of clinical products and ensure we have strong regulatory compliance programs in place across the company. We will also continue to optimize our portfolio to strengthen the core business.”
