Operating Expenses

Excluding other net charges and gains, operating expenses increased by 8% to $109.8 million for the second quarter of 2012, from $101.2 million for the second quarter of 2011. This reflects a $5.1 million (6%) increase in cash expenses and a $3.5 million (32%) increase in non-cash expenses, principally increased stock compensation expense.

SG&A expenses increased by $10.3 million to $60.6 million for the second quarter of 2012, from $50.3 million for the same period of 2011, primarily as a result of increased Tysabri sales and marketing expenses and higher legal and corporate costs, along with higher non-cash stock compensation expense, following the increase in share price since the first quarter of 2011.
