(NEWSER) – Corporate-speak at its best: "We wish to thank Martin for helping us build Turing Pharmaceuticals into the dynamic research focused company it is today, and wish him the best in his future endeavors."

So reads a statement from Turing Pharmaceuticals Friday. Martin, of course, is Martin Shkreli, whose name now usually comes with words like "infamous," "notorious," or "reviled pharma bro." And his "future endeavors" include fending off charges of securities fraud filed against him on Thursday.

The 32-year-old resigned on Friday as CEO of Turing, the company he made Internet-famous by jacking up the price of a life-saving drug by 5,000%, reports USA Today.
