The major use of cash for operating activities for the six month period ended June 30, 2013 was to fund our clinical development programs and associated administrative costs. Cash used in investing activities during the six month period ended June 30, 2013 was approximately $531,000 primarily for capitalized patent and patent application costs for Androxal® and Proellex®.

Financial Results

Net loss for the three month period ended June 30, 2013, was ($7.2) million or ($0.38) per share as compared to a net loss of ($3.1) million or ($0.21) per share for the same period in 2012.

The increase in loss for both the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012 was primarily due to an increase in expenses related to the clinical development of Androxal®, an increase in salary expense due to increased headcount and increased costs associated with our patent portfolio.

Clinical development expenses related to Androxal® increased by $3.1 million and $7.6 million for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2013, respectively, as compared to the same periods in the prior year due to the ongoing Phase 3 studies in men with secondary hypogonadism, including two pivotal studies being conducted under an SPA, a six month open label safety study and a one year DEXA study. Clinical development expenses related to Proellex® decreased by $189,000 and $216,000 for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2013, respectively, due to the completion of the Phase 2 vaginal administration study for uterine fibroids. Payroll and benefits expenses increased by $514,000 and $864,000 for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2013, respectively, as compared to the same periods in the prior year due to increased headcount in R&D employees. Operating and occupancy expenses increased by $478,000 and $493,000 for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2013, respectively, as compared to the same periods in the prior year due to an increase in costs associated with our patent portfolio, increased travel and professional services.

The increase in G&A expenses for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2013 as compared to the same periods in the prior year is primarily due to an increase in professional services and travel expenses.
