The increase in 2007 revenues, net income and cash flow compared to 2006 is primarily attributable to the effect of the previously announced grant of a paid up license for Kinetin and Zeatin to Valeant Pharmaceuticals Inc. in March 2007 which contributed $24,750,000 to skincare revenues in the first quarter of 2007.
The decrease in 2007 fourth quarter revenues and net income compared to fourth quarter 2006 is primarily attributable to the elimination of Kinetin and Zeatin royalties after March 2007.
