Highlight of Business Operations:

Under the strategic alliance agreements, we have responsibility and decision-making authority for the performance of early discovery projects and the development of all product candidates on a worldwide basis. There are no joint steering or similar committees for the alliance. Mundipharma is obligated to pay 100% of our contractually budgeted amounts for research and development expenses incurred by us for early discovery projects and product candidates included in the alliance until the later of December 31, 2013 and the commencement of the first Phase 3 clinical trial of such product candidate, which we refer to as the transition date. The contractually budgeted amount for the period between November 19, 2008 and December 31, 2009 was $50 million and the contractually budgeted amounts for the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2011 are $65 million and $85 million, respectively. After the transition date for each product candidate other than those arising out of the FAAH project, we will share with Mundipharma all research and development costs for such product candidate equally. We are recording revenue for reimbursed research and development services we perform for Mundipharma and Purdue. We recorded $15.3 million and $8.7 million in such revenue in the three months ended March 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively.

In connection with the entry into the strategic alliance agreements, we also entered into a securities purchase agreement and line of credit agreement with Purdue and its independent associated company, Purdue Pharma L.P., or PPLP. In March 2009, Purdue assigned its interest under the line of credit agreement to PPLP. Under the securities purchase agreement we issued and sold in a first equity closing in November 2008 an aggregate of four million shares of our common stock at a purchase price of $11.25 per share, for an aggregate purchase price of $45 million. Of such shares, two million shares of our common stock were purchased by each purchaser. In January 2009, we conducted a second equity closing where we issued and sold an aggregate of two million shares of our common stock, and warrants to purchase up to an aggregate of six million shares of our common stock, for an aggregate purchase price of $30 million. Of the second closing securities, an equal number were purchased by each purchaser.

In 2008, we recorded $23.8 million as deferred revenue associated with the grant of licenses to Mundipharma and Purdue. This amount represented the excess of the amount paid by Purdue and PPLP for our common stock ($11.25 per share) over the closing market price on the day before the first equity closing ($5.29 per share). In 2008, we considered our obligation, absent material adverse changes, to issue Purdue and PPLP the second closing securities to be a forward contract with immaterial intrinsic value, which was recorded in stockholders equity. This forward contract closed in January 2009 upon the issuance of the second closing securities. In January 2009, we recorded $18.2 million as deferred revenue associated with the grant of licenses to Mundipharma and Purdue, representing the excess of the $30 million paid by Purdue and PPLP for the second closing securities over the fair market value of these securities ($5.29 per share for the common stock and approximately $1.3 million for the warrants) as of the day before the first equity closing. All deferred revenue related to the strategic alliance with Mundipharma and Purdue will be recognized as revenue ratably over 14 years, which is our estimated period of performance under the arrangement. We will periodically review this estimate and make adjustments as facts and circumstances dictate. We recognized $0.7 million in such revenue in each of the periods ended March 31, 2010 and 2009.

The extension of the line of credit at an interest rate below our incremental borrowing rate represented the transfer of additional value to us in the arrangement. As such, we recorded the fair value of the line of credit of $17.3 million as a loan commitment asset on our balance sheet in 2008. We began amortizing this asset to interest expense over the life of the loan arrangement, or 10 years, on April 1, 2009. We recorded approximately $0.4 million of related amortization expense in the period ended March 31, 2010. Because Purdue and its associated companies became related parties as a result of their equity ownership, we recorded the offset to this asset as additional paid-in capital in 2008. As of March 31, 2010, no amounts have been borrowed under this line of credit.

MedImmune/AZ. In August 2006, we entered into a product development and commercialization agreement with MedImmune/AZ, to jointly develop and commercialize cancer drugs targeting Hsp90 and the Hedgehog pathway. Under the terms of this agreement, we shared equally with MedImmune/AZ all development costs, as well as potential profits and losses, from any future marketed products. In November 2007, we regained from MedImmune/AZ worldwide development and commercialization rights under our Hedgehog pathway program on a royalty-free basis. In December 2008, we regained from MedImmune/AZ worldwide development and commercialization rights under our Hsp90 chaperone inhibitor program. In January 2009, we reached an agreement with MedImmune/AZ to settle the residual funding obligation remaining for 2009 through lump-sum payments totaling $12.5 million, which were recorded as income from residual funding after reacquisition of Hsp90 program (a component of other income) in the three months ended March 31, 2009. We received $6.2 million in cash from MedImmune/AZ in the three months ended March 31, 2009 and recorded an unbilled receivable for remaining amounts due from MedImmune/AZ, which was subsequently received in the following quarter.

Our revenue during the three months ended March 31, 2010 consisted of approximately $15.3 million for reimbursed research and development services and $0.7 million from the amortization of the deferred revenue associated with the grant of licenses under our strategic alliance agreements with Mundipharma and Purdue. Our revenue during the three months ended March 31, 2009 consisted of approximately $8.7 million for reimbursed research and development services and $0.7 million from the amortization of the deferred revenue associated with the grant of licenses under our strategic alliances with Mundipharma and Purdue. The increase in reimbursed research and development services revenue is a result of increased internal effort and greater external expenses on our FAAH inhibitor, Hedgehog pathway inhibitor and early discovery programs.
