G&A expenses totaled $8.7 million, compared to $7.1 million for the same period in 2010 and increased in 2011 as BMTI expanded its sales, marketing and customer service capabilities in preparation for bringing the product candidates into commercialization.

Guidance: BMTI continues to incur expenses in connection with its ongoing clinical trials and its preparation for an anticipated US commercial launch of Augment, in view of the uncertainty regarding the timing of the FDA approval of Augment, BMTI is re-evaluating all development and commercialization plans, and anticipates that it will seek to curtail expenses until greater clarity is obtained from the FDA regarding an approval pathway for Augment.

Such efforts may result in delaying further increases in staffing, delaying certain development programs, and postponing certain activities relating to the build-out of its warehouse, distribution and manufacturing facility. Based on current operating plans, sales and marketing costs associated with the launch of Augment Bone Graft, forecasted timing and costs of clinical trials and other product development programs, BMTI anticipates its 2011 year-end balance of cash, cash equivalents and investments to range from $55M to $62M and anticipates its net cash use will be between $32M and $39M. Net loss for the year ending 12/31/11 is forecasted to be in the range of $32M to $39M.

As of 6/30/11, BMTI had approximately $16.5M of cash and cash equivalents and $58.3M of investments in US government sponsored enterprise ("GSE") securities, corporate bonds, municipal bonds and commercial paper. Total assets were $91M. These investments have maturity dates ranging from 7/11 through 12/12 with coupon rates ranging from 0.091% to 6.375%.
