Highlight of Business Operations:

Revenues from our corporate collaboration and strategic partnering agreements were $4.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012, compared to $0.8 million in the corresponding period in 2011. The increase in collaboration agreement revenue was primarily due to our collaboration and license agreement with Shire, established in January 2012. Pursuant to the agreement, we received an upfront payment of $13.0 million, which is being amortized on a straight-line basis over the initial six-year research term. During the three months ended September 30, 2012, we recognized revenue of $0.5 million related to the upfront payment from Shire. We also recognized revenues of $2.7 million related to research services performed under the Shire agreement. In addition, royalty revenues from our agreement with Sigma increased in the three months ended September 30, 2012 compared to the same period in 2011. Research grant revenues were $0.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012, compared to $1.1 million in the corresponding period in 2011. Research grant revenues decreased primarily due to lower revenues related to the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) grant agreement.

Revenues from our corporate collaboration and strategic partnering agreements were $9.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared to $2.9 million in the corresponding period in 2011. The increase in collaboration agreement revenues was primarily attributable to our agreement with Shire, including $1.4 million in revenues from the amortization of the upfront license fee and $4.7 million related to research services performed under the agreement. In addition, collaboration agreement revenue increased during the nine months ended September 30, 2012 compared to the same period in 2011 due to the achievement of a commercial milestone under the agreement with Sigma. Research grant revenues were $3.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared to $2.7 million in the corresponding period in 2011. The increase in research grant revenues was primarily due to $0.8 million in revenues related to the two final milestones achieved in 2012, pursuant to the agreement with Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International, as well as $0.4 million in increased revenues from CHDI Foundation. This was partially offset by decreased revenues from the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF) and CIRM research grants of $0.8 million.

Net cash used in operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 was $8.3 million and $25.9 million, respectively. Net cash used in operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 primarily reflects the net loss for the period, partially offset by an increase in deferred revenues related to our collaboration agreement with Shire, as well as stock-based compensation and other non-cash expenses included in net loss. Net cash used in operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 primarily reflects the net loss for the period as well as a decrease in accounts payable and accrued liabilities, partially offset by stock-based compensation and other non-cash expenses included in net loss.
