RICHMOND, Va., Mar 28, 2003 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Insmed, Incorporated (NASDAQ/NMS: INSM), a biopharmaceutical company engaged in the development of drug candidates for the treatment of metabolic diseases and endocrine disorders with unmet medical needs, today announced that it has retained Investor Relations International (IRI) to expand the Company's strategic investor relations program.
"We are pleased to have Investor Relations International working with us to increase the investment community's interest in Insmed Incorporated," said Dr. Geoffrey Allan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Insmed Incorporated. "This is an exciting time for our company and we believe with the help of Investor Relations International we will be able to more broadly and effectively communicate our story to the investment community."
Haris Tajyar, Managing Partner of Investor Relations International, said, "We are looking forward to communicating Insmed's investment story to beyond its existing shareholder base and the biotech investment community.
