7,229Total revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 decreased 20% to $13.8 million from $17.2 million in the prior year, primarily due to license revenue recorded in 2012 from DSM and Novus International. Combined product and contract manufacturing revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 increased 6% to $12.4 million from $11.7 million in the prior year.
Product revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 decreased 13% to $10.2 million from $11.7 million in the prior year, primarily attributed to a decline in grain processing revenue due to the timing of orders from a major customer, as well as adverse business conditions impacting the corn ethanol industry. The Company also reported lower revenue from its grain processing and oilseed processing product lines as a result of the sale of its Veretase® alpha-amylase and Purifine® PLC enzymes to DSM in March 2012.
