Financial Results:

Total revenues for the three-month period ended December 31, 2016 amounted to $1.9 million, representing an increase of $400,000, or 27%, compared to $1.5 million for the three-month period ended December 31, 2015. Total revenues for the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2016 amounted to $5.2 million, representing an increase of $100,000, or 2%, compared to $5.1 million for the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2015. The increase for the three-month period ended December 31, 2016 compared to the last year's corresponding period is mainly attributable to upfront payments received in Q4 2016. The increase for both the three-month periods ended December 31, 2016 compared to the previous year's corresponding periods was mainly attributable to upfront payments received throughout 2016. The mix of revenue components in 2016 continued to shift from royalties and milestones to deferred revenues from the monetization of Forfivo and upfront payments from multiple agreements signed in the period.

Operating costs and expenses were $6.2 million for the full year 2016, versus $3.71 million for the corresponding 12-month period of 2015.

For the twelve-month period of 2016, the Company had an operating loss of $981,000, compared to operating income of $1.4 million for the comparable period of 2015.
