    In connection with the financial report, Lundbeck’s interim CEO and CFO, Anders Götzsche said:
    I am really pleased with the performance. Lundbeck continues the solid financial performance and we are still on track to deliver the best ever results. We have furthermore moved new and innovative projects into clinical development. However, sales in the second half of 2018 will be somewhat lower than realized in the first half of the year as we expect increased generic erosion and destocking.”
