Inovio reported a first-quarter loss of $10 million, or 5 cents a share, compared to a loss of $6.6 million, or 4 cents a share, in the same period one year earlier. This was slightly wider than the consensus estimate of a loss of 4 cents a share.
Revenue totaled $2.4 million, up year over year from $1.5 million. This surpassed analysts' estimates of $1.41 million; however, this increase was due primarily to $1.4 million attributable to the company's agreement with Roche. This portion of revenue mostly consisted of development fees paid for work Inovio performed in the first quarter.
