Nine Months Ended September 30, 2007 Operating Results
The net loss for the first nine months of 2007 was $16.8 million, or $0.19 per share, compared to $24.3 million, or $0.34 per share, for the same period a year ago. Included in the loss for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2006 was a charge of $10.4 million of in-process research and development expense recorded in connection with the acquisition of SD Pharmaceuticals and eight of its product candidates.
R&D expenses were $12.0 million for the first nine months of 2007, compared to $8.9 million for the same period a year ago. The increase in R&D expenses for 2007 was primarily related to a $1.4 million increase in expenses related to research-related manufacturing and quality assurance activities for our product candidates, a $214,000 increase in external preclinical study fees and expenses mostly related to ANX-201 and a $1.3 million increase in personnel and related costs.
SG&A expenses were $6.8 million for the first nine months of 2007, compared to $5.5 million for the same period a year ago. The increase in SG&A expenses for 2007 was substantially due to a $1.1 million increase in SG&A personnel and related costs and a $251,000 increase in legal fees primarily related to patent applications.
Revenue of $500,000 in the first nine months of 2007 represented a license fee earned from licensing ANX-211, compared to no revenue for the comparable period in 2006.
