|About: Regulus Therapeutics (RGLS)|By:, SA News Editor

Regulus Therapeutics (RGLS +8.6%) moves up despite posting a mixed Q2, improving on last year but still coming up short versus consensus on a per share basis.

Net loss per share was negatively impacted by its initial public offering and concurrent common stock issuances in October 2012.

R&D expenses also rose, largely due to the expansion of R&D personnel and an increase in IND-enabling activities for RG-101 in the first half of 2013.

Revenues rose to $4.76M from $3.3M, topping estimates looking for $3.41M.
