Revenue increased by $1,884,000 or 35% to $7,319,000 for the 3 months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to total revenue of $5,435,000 for the 3 months ended June 30, 2010 and increased $506,000 or 7% sequentially as compared to $6,813,000 for the 3 months ended March 31, 2011. Revenue has now grown sequentially for the last 5 quarters. 2Q revenue was the highest quarterly revenue amount, and revenue increased across all of our product lines as compared to the second quarter of 2010. The company's cash, cash equivalents and investments at June 30, 2011, totaled $10,402,000, a decrease of $1,054,000 from the balance of $11,456,000 at March 31, 2011. The decrease reflects the payments of approximately $650,000 related to the resignation of our former CEO. Increase in cost of license revenue for the 3 months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to the 3 months ended June 30, 2010, is due to increase in direct third-party costs of $774,000, which is primarily comprised of royalties from the sale of third party products of $499,000 as well as $244,000 in closing fees for the browsing product line. Prior to the monetization of the browser user base, hosting fees had been classified as a research and development expense, which was its primary function at that time. Cost of services increased primarily due to the additional personnel added with the iWay acquisition.
Operating expenses increased $1,607,000 to $5,177,000 for the 3 months ended June 30, 2011, from $3,570,000 for the 3 months ended June 30, 2010. Marketing and selling expenses increased $132,000 primarily due to additional costs, including personnel associated with the acquisition of the iWay product line. Research and development expenses increased $449,000, primarily due to increases in personnel and benefit cost of $551,000. G&A expense increased $1,026,000, including $695,000 associated with the resignation of our former CEO, $150,000 in professional services relating to the company's exploration of its strategic alternatives, and $278,000 related to the establishment of an office in Israel in June 2010. These increases were approximately offset by decrease in stock compensation expense of $152,000 from the forfeiture of stock options held by the former CEO.GAAP loss. Our loss from operations increased $640,000 to $1,354,000 for the 3 months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to $714,000 for the 3 months ended June 30, 2010. Our net loss increased $566,000 to $1,251,000 or $0.12 per share for the 3 months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to $685,000 or $0.07 per share for the 3 months ended June 30, 2010. Non-GAAP loss. Our non-GAAP results exclude stock-based compensation expense, the amortization of intangible assets primarily acquired from Press-Sense Ltd., acquisition cost of those assets from Press-Sense Ltd. and the cost of the resignation agreement with our former CEO. Our non-GAAP loss from operations increased $329,000 to $423,000 for the 3 months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to $94,000 for the 3 months ended June 30, 2010. Our non-GAAP net loss increased $255,000 to $320,000 or $0.03 per share for the 3 months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to $65,000 or $0.01 per share for the 3 months ended June 30, 2010.
