Financial Results for the Transition Period from September 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012
Research and development expenses for the four month transition period ended December 31, 2012, and the four month period ended December 31, 2011 were approximately $9.0 million, and $6.3 million (unaudited), respectively. The increase in research and development expenses for the four months ended December 31, 2012 compared to the four months ended December 31, 2011 relates primarily to increased product manufacture of RP103 for the potential treatment of cystinosis, Huntington's disease and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, additional cystinosis extension and other supporting study expenses, and employee compensation, offset by a reduction in Phase 3 cystinosis clinical trial expenses.
General and administrative expenses for the four month transition period ended December 31, 2012, and the four month period ended December 31, 2011 were approximately $9.0 million, and $3.2 million (unaudited), respectively. The increase in general and administrative expenses for the four months ended December 31, 2012 compared to the four months ended December 31, 2011 relates primarily to increased expenses for pre-commercial operations requirements for RP103 for the potential treatment of cystinosis, employee compensation, stock-compensation for employees and directors, legal fees and investor relations costs.
