Net other expense was $0.2 million for the second quarter of 2008 compared to net other income of $0.3 million for the second quarter of 2007, and net other expense was $0.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008 compared to net other income of $0.5 million. The difference resulted from lower investment income, owing to lower investment balances, and accrued interest on the convertible notes. The Company has no exposure to auction rate securities.
At June 30, 2008, Genta had cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities totaling $16.3 million compared with $7.8 million at December 31, 2007. During the first six months of 2008, cash used in operating activities was $14.4 million compared with $16.8 million for the same period in 2007, primarily as a result of the timing of payments in the two respective periods. The Company estimates that its average net cash outflow will be $2.0 to $2.5 million per month for the remainder of 2008.
