Dan Abdun-Nabi



Thank you, Bob. Good afternoon, everyone and thank you for joining our call today. For my prepared comments I will review our financial performance for the first quarter of 2012. Then I will address our 2012 forecast, including revenue expectations for the second quarter and finally, I will provide a brief business update.

To begin, let me review our financial results for Q1 2012. Total revenues were approximately $50 million, which is within the $40 million to $50 million range that we provided during our March conference call. In addition, for the quarter we realized a net loss of $6.8 million, or $0.19 per share. This loss includes a one-time, non-cash charge of $9.6 million related to Pfizer's decision to cease further development of SBI-087.
