drug firm Amryt Pharma, which is focused on finding treatments for rare conditions, has reported revenue of $113.1m (€101m) for the nine months to 30 September, up from $94.5m (€84.6m) in the same period last year.

The performance was helped by the company's acquisition of Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, a former subsidiary of Novelion Therapeutics.

At 31 October the group had cash on hand of $61.2m, according to a trading update from the company.

Dr Joe Wiley, CEO of Amryt Pharma, said: "The first nine months of 2019 have been momentous and transformational for Amryt."
