First Quarter 2015 Financial Results:

First quarter 2015 revenue decreased 11% to $61.2 million, compared with $69.2 million in the first quarter of 2014.

Operating loss for the first quarter of 2015 was $8.6 million, compared with an operating loss of $1.9 million in the first quarter of 2014. This result was primarily driven by a 19% increase in operating expenses to $41.4 million compared with $34.7 million in the prior year. Included in our operating expenses during the first quarter of 2015 and 2014 were charges of $2.4 million and $0.2 million (of which $1.2 million and zero were non-cash), respectively, consisting primarily of severance and stock-based compensation related to recent management transitions.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2015 was $11.8 million, or $0.21 per share, compared with net loss of $6.1 million, or $0.11 per share, in the first quarter of 2014.


For the year ending December 31, 2015, the Company is reaffirming its revenue guidance of $305 to $320 million. For the second quarter of 2015, the Company is expecting revenue to be in the range of $67 to $70 million.
