- Cost of Sales (excluding product rights amortization): Cost of sales was $1.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and $1.1 million for the same period in 2017. Cost of sales for SPRIX Nasal Spray, OXAYDO and ARYMO ER for the three months ended June 30, 2018 reflects the average cost of inventory shipped to wholesalers and specialty pharmaceutical companies during the period. Cost of sales for SPRIX Nasal Spray and OXAYDO for the three months ended June 30, 2017 reflects the average cost of inventory produced and dispensed to patients in the period.

- G&A Expenses: General and administrative expenses were $6.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 compared to $12.5 million for the same period in 2017. The decrease in the period is due to $4.5 million related to ARYMO ER post-marketing study fees incurred in the three months ended June 30, 2017 and a decrease in salary and stock-based compensation expense of $1.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 due to reduced headcount.

- R&D Expenses: Research and development expenses were $1.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 compared to $4.6 million for the same period in 2017.

- Change in Fair Value of Warrant Liability and Derivative Liability: During the three months ended June 30, 2018, Egalet recognized a change in the fair value of its derivative liabilities of $3.2 million. The change in fair value of the derivative liability is due primarily to the changes in the value of Egalet's common stock during the three months ended June 30, 2018.
- Interest Expense: Interest expense for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $3.8 million compared to interest expense of $4.7 million for the same period in 2017.
