General and administrative (G&A) expenses in the second quarter of 2013 were $3.4 million, compared to $2.2 million in the second quarter of 2012. G&A expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2013 were $6.5 million, compared to $4.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012. The increase in G&A expenses was primarily due to higher personnel-related expenses, professional services and rindopepimut-related commercial planning costs in 2013. During 2013, we have increased our headcount to 124 as we continue to add important positions in the areas of commercial development, marketing, regulatory, and manufacturing.
At June 30, 2013, Celldex reported cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $155.0 million, which the Company believes will be sufficient to meet estimated working capital requirements and fund planned program development through 2015. The decrease of $27.4 million from March 31, 2013 includes total principal and interest payments on our term loan of $10.5 million during the second quarter of 2013 and our second quarter net cash burn of approximately $16.9 million. In May 2013, we paid off our term loan, which would have otherwise matured in December 2014, for a savings of approximately $0.5 million in interest costs (net of prepayment fees).
As of June 30, 2013, Celldex had approximately 81.0 million shares outstanding.
