Financial Results for the Third Quarter 2016
 
Cash Position: Cash, cash equivalents, investment securities, and interest receivable were $109.5 million as of March 31, 2017.
 
R&D Expenses: Research and development (R&D) expense was $22.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to $11.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016. Included in research and development expense for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, was $5.3 million and $4.3 million, respectively, of manufacturing and CMC expenses for Phase 3 clinical trials and potential commercialization. The increase in R&D expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2017, is primarily due to the ongoing clinical development programs and related manufacturing costs for TG-1101 and TGR-1202.  
 
G&A Expenses: General and administrative (G&A) expense was $5.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 as compared to $2.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The period-over-period increase in G&A expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2017 relates primarily to non-cash compensation expenses related to equity incentive grants recognized during 2017. Other G&A expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2017 remained relatively flat compared to the first quarter of 2016, and we expect G&A expenses to remain relatively constant through the remainder of 2017.  
 
Net Loss: Net loss was $27.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to a net loss of $13.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016.
 
Financial Guidance: The Company believes its cash, cash equivalents, investment securities, and interest receivable of $109.5 million as of March 31, 2017 will be sufficient to fund the Company’s planned operations through 2018.
