Opioid addiction treatment maker Indivior surged after it upped its full-year revenue guidance and said adjusted pre-tax income is set to beat its previous expectations, thanks in part to better-than-expected revenues from its Sublocade treatment.

For the year to the end of December 2020, the company now expects total net revenue of between $645 and $650m, up from previous guidance of $595 to $620m.
