Highlight of Business Operations:We need large amounts of capital to support our research and development efforts. If we are unable to secure capital to fund our operations we will not be able to continue our discovery and development efforts and we might have to enter into strategic collaborations that could require us to share commercial rights to our medicines to a greater extent than we currently intend. Based on our current operating plans, milestone and royalty forecasts and spending assumptions, we believe that our cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities will be sufficient to meet our anticipated operating needs for at least the next twelve months. We are likely to require additional capital to fund operating needs thereafter. Although we have no current intention to do so, if we were to conduct additional studies to support the telavancin NP NDA, or if we were to build the sales and marketing, distribution and compliance infrastructure to commercialize VIBATIV® without a partner, our capital needs would increase substantially. We intend to continue development of our pipeline. A Phase 2b program is underway in our PµMA program and we initiated a Phase 2 study for MARIN in late 2011. We also intend to invest in other assets in our pipeline, including our Hepatitis C virus (HCV) and cardiovascular programs in late-stage discovery, and conduct a number of other non-clinical and earlier-stage clinical studies in other programs. Further, pursuant to the terms of the recent termination of our collaboration agreement with Astellas, we may purchase up to $11.0 million of VIBATIV® inventory during 2012. In addition, under our LABA collaboration with GSK, in the event that vilanterol (VI), which is the current lead LABA product candidate in RELOVAIR and LAMA/LABA ('719/VI) and which was discovered by GSK, is approved and launched in multiple regions of the world as both a single agent and a combination product or two different combination products, we will be obligated to pay GSK milestone payments that could total as much as $220.0 million and we would not be entitled to receive any further milestone payments from GSK. Future financing to meet our capital needs may not be available in sufficient amounts or on terms acceptable to us, if at all. Even if we are able to raise additional capital, such financing may result in significant dilution to existing security holders. If we are unable to raise additional capital in sufficient amounts or on terms acceptable to us, we may have to make reductions in our workforce and may be prevented from continuing our discovery and development efforts and exploiting other corporate opportunities. This could harm our business, prospects and financial condition and cause the price of our securities to fall.
We recognize revenue in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Subtopic ASC 605-25, "Revenue RecognitionMultiple-Element Arrangements." As of January 1, 2011, we adopted on a prospective basis the accounting updates to guidance ASC 605 "Revenue Recognition", subtopic ASC 605-25 "Revenue with Multiple Element Arrangements" and subtopic ASC 605-28 "Revenue Recognition-Milestone Method", which provides accounting guidance for revenue recognition for arrangements with multiple deliverables and guidance on defining the milestone and determining when the use of the milestone method of revenue recognition for research and development transactions is appropriate, respectively. The adoption of ASC 605-25 "Revenue with Multiple Element Arrangements" and the election of the milestone method under subtopic ASC 605-28 "Revenue Recognition-Milestone Method" did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements. However, these updates will result in different accounting treatment for future new collaboration arrangements and substantive milestones earned after the dates of adoption.
We have been reimbursed by GSK and Astellas for certain external development costs under their respective collaboration agreements. Such reimbursements have been reflected as a reduction of research and development expense and not as revenue.
Revenue increased to $24.5 million in 2011 compared to 2010. This increase was due primarily to an (i) increase in royalty revenue of $1.3 million from higher net sales of VIBATIV®, (ii) an increase in revenue related to our GSK MABA program of $1.1 million reflecting primarily the Additional MABA upfront license fee, and (iii) a decrease in expense of $0.3 million related to VIBATIV® inventory that was no longer realizable. These increases in 2011 were partially offset by (i) a decrease in revenue related to our GSK strategic alliance agreement of $0.8 million resulting from the deferred revenue being fully amortized in the third quarter of 2011, (ii) a decrease in net proceeds of $1.1 million in 2011, compared to 2010, related to the delivery of VIBATIV® to Astellas, and (iii) a decrease in revenue of $0.4 million in 2011, compared to 2010, resulting from a change in the estimated performance period related to our GSK LABA collaboration.
Cash provided by financing activities decreased in 2011, compared to 2010, due primarily to net proceeds of $129.2 million received from our private equity placement with GSK in November 2010, net proceeds of $93.5 million received from our public offering of common stock that closed in March 2010 and $2.7 million in Qualifying Therapeutic Discovery Project Grants received from the National Institute of Health in December 2010. This decrease was partially offset by proceeds of $13.6 million received from sales of our common stock to an affiliate of GSK throughout 2011, an increase in
