•NDA was submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in September 2020 for the continuous treatment of "on-off" episodes in adults with Parkinson's disease (PD) whose motor control is unsatisfactory with oral levodopa and at least one other noninvasive PD therapy.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses in the third quarter of 2020 were $54.7 million, compared to $39.3 million in the same quarter last year.
