- Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $20.3 million, or $0.27 per common share, as compared to a net loss of $14.6 million, or $0.24 per common share, for the year ended December 31, 2011.
- Cash used in 2012 was $15.9 million as compared to $12.1 million for 2011. Cash use in 2012 included $14.7 million for operations and $1.2 million invested in patents and other long-lived assets.
- The Company generated $18.9 million in cash in 2012 from the sale of equity securities including the exercise of outstanding warrants and options.
- Cash and available for sale securities as of December 31, 2012 was $8.3 million.
The increase in net loss, for both the quarterly and annual periods, is the result of increased professional fees and increased non-cash share-based compensation expense. On an annual basis, professional fees increased approximately $2.8 million and share-based compensation expense increased approximately $2.1 million when compared to fiscal 2011. The increase in professional fees is primarily the result of increased legal fees and expenses related to our patent infringement litigation against Qualcomm.
