In May 2008, we entered an agreement to terminate the lease for our former corporate facility for consideration of $4.1 million which was recognized as a reduction to operating expense in September 2008. Under the terms of the agreement, we received $1.0 million upon execution of the agreement and the remaining $3.1 million in September 2008, at the time we vacated the premises. We incurred costs of $116,867 related to relocation to our new facility and the lease buyout which were recognized in operating expense in September 2008.
Other income decreased 98%, or $41,608 to $948 for the three months ended September 30, 2009, compared to $42,556 for the comparable period in 2008, and decreased 96%, or $186,746 to $8,548 for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, compared to $195,294 of net income for the same period in 2008. These decreases were due to a decrease in interest income due to lower cash balances.
Net loss increased $2.5 million to $1.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2009, compared to $890,371 of net income for the same period in 2008, and the net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, increased 57%, or $1.8 million to $5.1 million, compared with a net loss of $3.2 million for the same period in 2008. The increased net loss reflects the net impact of the non-recurring $4.0 million income recognized in the prior year for the facility lease buyout.
We had approximately $1.9 million in cash and cash equivalents, and $473,711 in restricted cash as of September 30, 2009. Based on our current operating plan, we anticipate that our existing cash and cash equivalents, together with expected royalties from third parties, will be sufficient to fund our operations through February 2010, unless
