Q3 2017 Financial Results
Revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 were $3.3 million, a decrease of 10% over the same quarter last year, mainly driven by a decrease in succinic acid volume, slightly offset by an increase in average selling price.
Cost of goods sold increased from $5 million to $6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2016, driven primarily by an increase in production volume and an increase in royalties.
General and administrative expenses increased by $0.6 million to $2.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017, as compared to $1.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016. This is mainly due to recruiting fees associated with the hiring of a new CEO and an increase in legal fees. Excluding these and other non-recurring charges, general and administrative expenses were flat compared to last year.
