Highlight of Business Operations:

Net loss for the three months ended December 31, 2009 was $6.8 million, or $0.07 per common share basic and diluted, as compared to net income of $112.7 million, or $1.18 per common share basic and diluted, for the three months ended December 31, 2008. Net loss for the nine months ended December 31, 2009 was $25.7 million or $0.27 per common share basic and diluted, as compared to net income of $144.1 million, or $1.51 per common share basic and $1.49 per common share diluted, for the nine months ended December 31, 2008. Net loss for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2009 includes $3.6 million and $15.9 million, respectively, in charges associated with the relocation of our corporate headquarters from Cambridge, Massachusetts to Waltham, Massachusetts.

Effective December 1, 2008 (the Termination Date), we ended our collaboration with Cephalon and assumed full responsibility for the marketing and sale of VIVITROL in the U.S., and assumed title to certain VIVITROL inventory which we had previously sold to Cephalon prior to the termination. In the three months ended December 31, 2008, we reduced VIVITROL manufacturing revenues by $0.8 million to reverse the previous sale of this inventory to Cephalon. VIVITROL manufacturing revenues for the nine months ended December 31, 2008 consisted of $2.8 million of billings to Cephalon for failed product batches, $0.7 million of net shipments of VIVITROL to Cephalon and $0.3 million related to manufacturing profit on VIVITROL, which equaled a 10% markup on VIVITROL cost of goods manufactured, all of which occurred prior to the termination of the VIVITROL collaboration.

Substantially all of our royalty revenues for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2009 and 2008 were related to sales of RISPERDAL CONSTA. Under our license agreements with Janssen, we record royalty revenues equal to 2.5% of Janssens net sales of RISPERDAL CONSTA in the period that the product is sold by Janssen. RISPERDAL CONSTA royalty revenues for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2009 were based on RISPERDAL CONSTA sales of $398.7 million and $1,099.1 million, respectively. Royalty revenues for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2008 were based on RISPERDAL CONSTA sales of $318.8 million and $999.5 million, respectively. During the three and nine months ended December 31, 2009, 67% and 64% of RISPERDAL CONSTA sales occurred in foreign countries, respectively, as compared to 63% and 64% during the three and nine months ended December 31, 2008, respectively.
