Net cash provided by operating activities decreased by 60% to $72.0 million for the three months to June 30, 2009 (2008: $180.4 million). The cash inflow from operating activities was lower in Q2 2009 than the same period in 2008 as lower sales receipts, higher cash tax payments and cash payments on forward exchange contracts in 2009 were only partially offset by lower operating expense payments during the quarter.
Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash at June 30, 2009 totaled $299.1 million (December 31, 2008: $247.4 million), an increase of $51.7 million. Cash inflows from operating activities, cash received on the disposal of Shire's minority investment in Virochem Pharma Inc. and Jerini's Peptides business have been partially offset by cash outflows to acquire EQUASYM, investment in property, plant and equipment at the HGT campus in Lexington and the dividend payment.
