For the six months ended June 30, 2013, Intercept reported a net loss of $23.7 million, or $1.41 per share, compared to a net loss of $9.3 million, or $2.78 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2012. The $14.4 million increase in net loss was primarily due to the increase in the non-cash charge related to the periodic revaluation of warrant liability of $10.2 million and the increase in non-cash stock compensation of $2.7 million.
Licensing revenue decreased by $707,000 to $811,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2013, compared to $1.5 million for the corresponding period of the prior year, because the up-front payment related to the Servier collaboration was fully amortized as of the third quarter of 2012, and therefore no amortized revenue related to this upfront payment was recognized in 2013.
Research and development expenses increased to $10.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013, from $8.1 million for the corresponding period of the prior year, primarily as a result of increased activities in Intercept's development program for its product candidate, obeticholic acid (OCA).
