General and administrative (G&A) expenses were $17.6 million in the first quarter of 2011, compared with $15.1 million in the same period a year earlier. The net increase in G&A expenses is primarily attributed to costs related to preparation for the commercialization of Esbriet, including establishment of a European infrastructure and pre-launch marketing expenses, offset by a significant decrease in this quarter versus the same quarter last year in U.S. infrastructure and pre-launch marketing expense.
The net loss for the first quarter of 2011 was $32.1 million, or $0.57 per share, compared with a net loss of $34.1 million, or $0.66 per share, in the first quarter of 2010.
As of March 31, 2011, InterMune had cash, cash equivalents and available-for-sale securities of approximately $254.3 million.
