Response Genetics, Inc. Announces First Quarter Financial Results

Excluding cost of revenue, total operating expenses for the first quarter were $4.4 million, compared to $3.5 million for the same period last year. The increase in total operating expenses of $0.9 million was due to an increase in general and administrative expenses of $0.5 million and research and development expenses of $0.4 million.

The increase in general and administrative expenses was a result of an increase of $0.2 million in stock based compensation expense, $0.1 million in bad debt expense, $0.1 million in consulting expense, $0.1 million of equipment/maintenance expense and $0.1 million in legal fees, offset by a decrease in business tax of $0.1 million.

The increase in research and development expenses was due to an increase in personnel expenses and associated laboratory supplies and reagents related to increased research and development activity.
