NPS PHARMACEUTICALS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited)

(1) Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included herein have been prepared by NPS Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NPS) in accordance with the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The condensed consolidated financial statements are comprised of the financial statements of NPS and its subsidiaries collectively referred to as the Company. In management's opinion, the interim financial data presented includes all adjustments (consisting solely of normal recurring items) necessary for fair presentation. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated. Certain information required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles has been condensed or omitted in accordance with rules and regulations of the SEC. Operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for any future period or for the year ending December 31, 2011.

These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company's audited consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2010, included in NPS' 2010 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC.

The preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions relating to reporting of the assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities to prepare these condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform with the current year presentation.

Subsequent Events

The Company has evaluated all events and transactions since June 30, 2011. The Company did not have any material recognized subsequent events; however, the Company did have the following non-recognized subsequent event as summarized below:

In July 2011, the Company amended its current lease agreement to add an additional 32,000 square feet of office space in its previously leased facility located in Bedminster, New Jersey. The Company will pay average rent of approximately $66,000 per month for the additional space, plus certain other expenses. This amendment also extended the original term of the lease through August 2016 with an option to terminate early in August 2014.

(2) Income (Loss) Per Common Share

Basic net income (loss) per common share is the amount of income (loss) for the period divided by the weighted average shares of common stock outstanding during the reporting period. Diluted income (loss) per common share is the amount of income (loss) for the period plus interest expense on convertible debt divided by the sum of weighted average shares of common stock outstanding during the reporting period and weighted average shares that would have been outstanding assuming the issuance of common shares for all dilutive potential common shares.

Potential common shares of approximately 7.7 million and 10.0 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively and 11.8 million and 13.7 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively that could potentially dilute basic income per share in the future were not included in the computation of diluted income (loss) per share because to do so would have been anti-dilutive for the periods presented. Potential dilutive common shares related to convertible debt were approximately 3.9 million and 6.4 million common shares for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, and 9.2 million common shares for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010. Additionally, potential dilutive common shares related to stock options, restricted stock and restricted stock units were 3.8 million and 3.6 million common shares, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively and 2.6 million and 4.5 million common shares, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 respectively.

(3) Fair Value Measurement

In September 2009, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2010-06, "Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (Topic 820): Improving Disclosures about Fair Value Measurements." ASU 2010-06 amends certain disclosure requirements of Subtopic 820-10. This ASU provides additional disclosures for transfers in and out of Levels 1 and 2 and for activity in Level 3. This ASU also clarifies certain other existing disclosure requirements including level of desegregation and disclosures around inputs and valuation techniques. The Company adopted ASU 2010-06 on January 1, 2010. The new disclosures about purchases, sales, issuances, and settlements in the roll forward activity for Level 3 fair-value measurements were adopted by the Company on January 1, 2011 and did not have a material impact on the financial statements.

Summary of Assets Recorded at Fair Value

The Company's financial assets and liabilities are measured using inputs from the three levels of the fair value hierarchy. The three levels are as follows:

Level 1- Inputs are unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the Company has the ability to access at the measurement date.

Level 2- Inputs are other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly. Level 2 inputs include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability (i.e., interest rates, yield curves, etc.), and inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means (market corroborated inputs).

Level 3- Inputs are unobservable and reflect the Company's assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. The Company develops these inputs based on the best information available.

In accordance with the fair value hierarchy described above, the following table shows the fair value of the Company's financial assets (only marketable investment securities) that are required to be measured at fair value as of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010 (in thousands):

As of June 30, 2011:     Level 1     Level 2     Level 3     Total
                   
Marketable investment securities   $ 57,793    $ 6,915    $ -     $ 64,708 

 

As of December 31, 2010:     Level 1     Level 2     Level 3     Total
                   
Marketable investment securities   $ 41,102    $ 15,499    $ -     $ 56,601 

As of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, the fair values of the Company's Level 2 securities were $6.9 million and $15.5 million, respectively. These securities are certificates of deposit or commercial paper issued by domestic companies with an original maturity of greater than ninety days. These securities are currently rated A-1 or higher.

As of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, the Company did not have any investments in Level 3 securities.

There were no transfers of assets or liabilities between level 1 and level 2 during the three or six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010.

The following table summarizes the changes in fair value of the Company's Level 3 assets (in thousands):

          For the Three Months Ended     For the Six Months Ended
          June 30,     June 30,
          2011     2010     2011     2010
Beginning balance       $ -     $ 904    $ -     $ 8,586 
     Total gains (losses) (realized or unrealized)                            
          Included in earnings         -       146      -       3,816 
          Included in other comprehensive income         -       -       -       (2,781)
          Transfers in (out) of Level 3         -       -       -       -  
          Sales         -       (700)     -       (9,271)
     Ending balance       $ -     $ 350    $ -     $ 350 
     Losses included in earnings attributable to change                            
          in unrealized gains or losses (including other-                            
          than-temporary impairments) relating to                             
          assets still held at the reporting date       $ -     $ -     $ -     $ -  

The carrying amounts reflected in the condensed consolidated balance sheets for certain short-term financial instruments including accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued expenses, and other liabilities approximate fair value due to their short-term nature except that the estimated fair value and carrying value of the Brigham and Women's Hospital royalty liability using a discounted cash flow model is approximately $4.4 million and $7.6 million, respectively, at June 30, 2011 and $5.1 million and $8.6 million, respectively, at December 31, 2010.

Summary of Liabilities Recorded at Carrying Value

The fair and carrying value of our debt instruments are detailed as follows (in thousands):

          As of June 30, 2011     As of December 31, 2010
          Fair     Carrying     Fair     Carrying
          Value     Value     Value     Value
5.75% Convertible Notes       $ 28,624    $ 16,545    $ 72,974    $ 50,000 
8.0% Secured Notes - Class A         -       -       48,953      46,182 
15.5% Secured Notes - Class B         150,267      150,267      142,515      167,665 
     Total       $ 178,891    $ 166,812    $ 264,442    $ 263,847 

The fair values of the Company's convertible notes were estimated using the (i) terms of the convertible notes; (ii) rights, preferences, privileges, and restrictions of the underlying security; (iii) time until any restriction(s) are released; (iv) fundamental financial and other characteristics of the Company; (v) trading characteristics of the underlying security (exchange, volume, price, and volatility); and (vi) precedent sale transactions. The fair values of the Company's non-recourse notes were estimated using market observable inputs, including quoted prices and market indices. Within the hierarchy of fair value measurements, these are Level 2 fair values.

(4) Financial Instruments

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk are accounts receivable and marketable investment securities. The majority of the Company's accounts receivable are payable by large pharmaceutical companies and collateral is generally not required from these companies. Substantially all of the Company's revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010 were from four licensees of the Company. At June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, substantially all of the Company's accounts receivable balances were from four licensees. The Company's portfolio of marketable investment securities is subject to concentration limits set within the Company's investment policy that help to mitigate its credit exposure.

In February 2010, the Company sold certain auction rate securities (ARS) with the principal value of $23.5 million and cost basis of $4.6 million for $8.2 million. The Company recognized a gain of $0 and $3.6 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively, related to the sale of these ARS.

(a) Convertible Notes

In August 2007, the Company completed a private placement of $50.0 million in 5.75% Convertible Notes due August 7, 2014 (5.75% Convertible Notes). The Company received net proceeds from the 5.75% Convertible Notes of approximately $49.4 million, after deducting costs associated with the offering. The 5.75% Convertible Notes accrue interest at an annual rate of 5.75% payable quarterly in arrears on the first day of the succeeding calendar quarter commencing January 1, 2008. Accrued interest on the 5.75% Convertible Notes was $0 as of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010. The holders may convert all or a portion of the 5.75% Convertible Notes into common stock at any time, subject to certain limitations, on or before August 7, 2014. The 5.75% Convertible Notes are convertible into common stock at a conversion price of $5.44 per share (see below), subject to adjustments in certain events. The 5.75% Convertible Notes are unsecured debt obligations and rank equally in right of payment with all existing and future unsecured senior indebtedness. On or after August 7, 2012, the Company may redeem any or all of the 5.75% Convertible Notes at a redemption price of 100% of their principal amount, plus accrued and unpaid interest to the day preceding the redemption date. The 5.75% Convertible Notes provide for certain events of default, including payment defaults, breaches of covenants and certain events of bankruptcy, insolvency and reorganization. The 5.75% Convertible Notes also provide that if there shall occur a fundamental change, as defined, at any time prior to the maturity of the Note, then the holder shall have the right, at the Holder's option, to require the Company to redeem the notes, or any portion thereof plus accrued interest and liquidated damages, if any. If a change of control, as defined, occurs and if the holder converts notes in connection with any such transaction, the Company will pay a make whole premium by increasing the conversion rate applicable to the notes. If any event of default occurs and is continuing, the principal amount of the 5.75% Convertible Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, may be declared immediately due and payable. The Company has filed a registration statement with the SEC, which has been declared effective, covering the common stock issuable upon conversion of the 5.75% Convertible Notes. The Company incurred debt issuance costs of approximately $600,000, which have been deferred and which are being amortized over a seven-year period, unless earlier converted, in which case the unamortized costs are recorded in additional paid-in capital. The effective interest rate on the 5.75% Convertible Notes, including debt issuance costs, is 5.9%.

On January 31, 2011 and April 14, 2011, certain holders of the 5.75% Convertible Notes converted portions of the outstanding notes at a conversion price of $5.44 per share. The Company issued 529,282 and 5,620,445 shares on January 31, 2011 and April 14, 2011, respectively, pursuant to this conversion and retired $2.9 million and $30.6 million, respectively, of the outstanding 5.75% Convertible Notes. The Company has $16.5 million of the 5.75% Convertible Notes outstanding as of June 30, 2011.

Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company has filed a shelf registration statement with the SEC, covering resales of the common stock issuable upon conversion of the 5.75% Convertible Notes. The registration statement has been declared effective. The Company agreed to use its reasonable best efforts to keep the registration statement effective until the earlier of (i) the date as of which holders may sell all of the securities covered by the registration statement without restriction pursuant to Rule 144(k) promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933 or (ii) the date on which holders shall have sold all of the securities covered by the registration statement. If the Company fails to comply with these covenants or suspends use of the registration statement for periods of time that exceed what is permitted under the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company is required to pay liquidated damages in an amount equivalent to 1% per annum of (a) the principal amount of the notes outstanding, or (b) the conversion price of each underlying share of common stock that has been issued upon conversion of a note, in each case, until the Company is in compliance with these covenants. The Company believes the likelihood of such an event occurring is remote and, as such, the Company has not recorded a liability as of June 30, 2011.

(b) Non-recourse Debt

Sensipar and Mimpara-Secured Non-recourse Debt

In December 2004, the Company completed a private placement of $175.0 million in non-recourse 8.0% Notes due March 30, 2017 (Class A Notes). The Company received net proceeds from the issuance of the Class A Notes of approximately $169.3 million, after deducting costs associated with the offering. The Class A Notes accrued interest at an annual rate of 8.0%. Additionally, the only source for interest payments and principal repayment of the Class A Notes was royalty and milestone payments received from Amgen. As of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, the outstanding principal balance on the Class A Notes was $0 and $46.2 million, respectively. The Class A Notes were paid in full on March 30, 2011. In the event the Company received royalty and milestone payments under its agreement with Amgen above certain specified amounts for a given year, an annual redemption premium on principal repayment was owed. The redemption premium ranged from 0% to 41.5% of principal payments, depending on the annual net sales of cinacalcet HC1 by Amgen. As of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, the Company classified $0 and $46.2 million, respectively, of the Class A Notes as current based on royalty and milestone payments accrued during the three months ended June 30, 2011 and the year ended December 31, 2010, respectively, plus other available balances in the restricted cash reserve account less estimated redemption premiums. The Company accrued the estimated redemption premiums over the estimated life of the debt using the effective interest method. The estimated life was based on projections of royalties to be earned from cinacalcet HC1 sales. Accrued interest on the Class A Notes was approximately $0 and $8.1 million as of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, respectively, which includes the redemption premium. The Company incurred debt issuance costs of $5.7 million, which was also amortized using the effective interest method.

In August 2007, the Company completed a private placement of $100.0 million in non-recourse 15.5% Notes due March 30, 2017 (Class B Notes). The Company received net proceeds from the issuance of the Class B Notes of approximately $97.0 million, after deducting costs associated with the offering. The Class B Notes accrue interest at an annual rate of 15.5% payable quarterly in arrears on March 30, June 30, September 30 and December 30 of each year. The Class B Notes are secured by certain royalty and related rights of the Company under its agreement with Amgen for Sensipar and Mimpara (cinacalcet HC1). Additionally, the only source for interest payments and principal repayment of the Class B Notes is royalty and milestone payments received from Amgen and only after the Class A Notes were paid in full. Prior to repayment in full of the Class A Notes, interest on the Class B Notes was paid in kind through the issuance of notes (the PIK Notes) which were part of the same class and have the same terms and rights as the Class B Notes, except that interest on the PIK Notes begin to accrue from the date that such PIK Notes are issued. As of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, the Company classified $16.8 million and $9.3 million, respectively, of the Class B Notes as current based on royalty payments accrued as of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, respectively. The Class B Notes are non-recourse to NPS Pharmaceuticals, Inc. The Company may repurchase, in whole but not in part, the Class B Notes at a calculated Redemption Price based on the timing of repurchase and the source of proceeds for the repurchase. The Redemption Price varies between 100.0% and 107.75% depending on these variables. The outstanding principal balances on the Class B Notes, were $150.3 million and $167.7 million, which included PIK Notes which have been issued, as of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, respectively. The Company incurred debt issuance costs of $3.6 million, which are being amortized using the effective interest method. The effective interest rate on the Class B Notes, including debt issuance costs, is approximately 16.0%.

Under the Company's agreements for the Class B Notes, the Company would potentially be liable for its breaches or defaults, if any.

Preotact-Secured Non-recourse Debt

In July 2007, the Company entered into an agreement with DRI Capital, or DRI, formerly Drug Royalty L.P.3, in which the Company sold to DRI its right to receive future royalty payments arising from sales of Preotact under its license agreement with Nycomed. Under the agreement, DRI paid the Company an up-front purchase price of $50.0 million. If and when DRI receives two and a half times the amount paid to the Company, the agreement will terminate and the remainder of the royalties, if any, will revert back to the Company. In connection with the Company's July 2007 agreement with DRI, the Company granted DRI a security interest in its license agreement with Nycomed for Preotact and certain of its patents and other intellectual property underlying that agreement. In the event of a default by NPS under the agreement with DRI, DRI would be entitled to enforce its security interest against NPS and the property described above. The Company has determined that it should classify the initial up-front purchase price as debt which should be amortized using the effective interest method over the estimated life of approximately 14 years. The liability recorded related to the DRI transaction was $49.3 million as of June 30, 2011 and $50.0 million as of December 31,

12


2010, and accrued interest under the DRI agreement was $924,000 and $1.7 million as of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, respectively. As of June 30, 2011, $33.8 million has been paid to DRI. The repayment of the remaining $49.3 million is secured solely by future royalty payments arising from sales of Preotact by Nycomed. The effective interest rate under the agreement, including debt issuance costs, is approximately 15.0%.

REGPARA-Secured Non-recourse Debt

In February 2010, the Company entered into an agreement with an affiliate of DRI, in which the Company sold to DRI its right to receive future royalty payments arising from sales of REGPARA® (cinacalcet HC1) under its license agreement with Kyowa Hakko Kirin. Under the agreement, DRI paid the Company an up-front purchase price of $38.4 million. If and when DRI receives two and a half times the amount paid to the Company, the agreement will terminate and the remainder of the royalties, if any, will revert back to the Company. In connection with the Company's March 2010 agreement with DRI, the Company granted DRI a security interest in its license agreement with Kyowa Hakko Kirin for REGPARA and certain of its patents and other intellectual property underlying that agreement. In the event of a default by NPS under the agreement with DRI, DRI would be entitled to enforce its security interest against NPS and the property described above. The Company has determined that it should classify the initial up-front purchase price as debt which should be amortized using the effective interest method over the estimated life of approximately 11 years. In accordance with the agreement, on March 1, 2010, DRI received the $2.1 million royalty owed to NPS for REGPARA sales during the six months ended December 31, 2009, which reduced the liability recorded for the DRI transaction to $36.3 million, which remains the liability as of June 30, 2011. Accrued interest under the DRI agreement was $3.6 million and $3.2 million as of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, respectively. Through June 30, 2011, $7.9 million has been paid to DRI. The repayment of the remaining $36.3 million is secured solely by future royalty payments arising from sales of REGPARA by Kyowa Hakko Kirin. The effective interest rate under the agreement, including issuance costs, is approximately 18.4%.

(7) Income Taxes

The Company accounts for penalties or interest related to uncertain tax positions as part of its provision for income taxes. Due to the Company's net operating loss carryforwards, any adjustment related to a liability would not be expected to result in a cash tax liability. Accordingly, the Company has not accrued for penalties or interest for the U.S. (both federal and state) as of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010. Assuming the continued existence of a full valuation allowance on the Company's net deferred tax assets, future recognition of any of the Company's unrecognized tax benefits would not impact the effective tax rate.

The Company files income tax returns in various jurisdictions with varying statutes of limitations. The statute of limitations for income tax audits in the U.S. will commence upon utilization of net operating losses and will expire three years from the filing of the tax return.

(8) Commitments and Contingencies

The Company has agreed to indemnify, under certain circumstances, certain manufacturers and service providers from and against any and all losses, claims, damages or liabilities arising from services provided by such manufacturers and service providers or from any use, including clinical trials, or sale by the Company or any Company agent of any product supplied by the manufacturers. The Company has entered into long-term agreements with various third-party contract manufacturers for the production and packaging of the active pharmaceutical ingredient and drug product. Under the terms of these various contracts, the Company may be required to purchase certain minimum quantities of product each year.

(9) Legal Proceedings

Sensipar® (cinacalcet HCl) Patent Infringement Litigation

On June 16, 2008, the Company reported the receipt of Paragraph IV Certification Notice Letters ("Notice Letters") related to Abbreviated New Drug Applications (ANDA) submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") by Barr Laboratories Inc. ("Barr") and Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc. ("Teva U.S.") requesting approval to market and sell generic versions of Sensipar (cinacalcet HCl). The Notice Letters alleged that the U.S. Patent Numbers 6,011,068 ("the `068 patent"), 6,031,003 ("the `003 patent"), 6,313,146 ("the `146 patent"), and 6,211,244 ("the `244 patent") covering Sensipar are invalid, unenforceable and/or will not be infringed by the manufacture, use or sale of the product described in the ANDAs.

13


Under the Company's licensing agreement with Amgen, Amgen is responsible for all development and commercial activities involving Sensipar, as well as enforcing applicable patent rights, in the licensed territories. The `068 patent, the `003 patent and the `146 patent are co-owned by the Company and The Brigham and Women's Hospital, which licensed its rights to the Company. The Company has licensed rights to these patents and the `244 patent to Amgen. On July 25, 2008, The Brigham and Women's Hospital, Amgen and the Company ("the Plaintiffs") filed a patent infringement action in United States District Court, District of Delaware (the "Delaware District Court"), No. 1:08cv00464 HB, against Barr, Teva U.S. and Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd ("Teva Israel" and collectively with Teva U.S., "Teva") relating to each of the patents referenced above. On January 7, 2011, the Delaware District Court ruled in favor of the Plaintiffs. The Delaware District Court's order enjoined Teva and Barr from the commercial manufacture, use, import, offer for sale, or sale of their generic cinacalcet hydrochloride until the expiration of the `068 patent, the `003 patent and the `244 patent. The `068 patent is the last of these patents to expire, which, by virtue of patent term extension, will be on March 8, 2018. On February 4, 2011, Teva and Barr filed a notice of appeal with the Delaware District Court. On April 12, 2011, the Company received a letter from Teva's legal counsel indicating that Teva intended to voluntarily dismiss the appeal. On April 20, 2011, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit entered an order dismissing the appeal. This case is now closed.

On May 20, 2009, Teva filed a lawsuit in federal court in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Amgen alleging that certain processes used by Amgen to manufacture Sensipar (cinacalcet HCl) infringe Teva's U.S. Patent No. 7,449,603. Teva was seeking declaratory relief and damages in an unspecified amount. Pursuant to the Company's license agreement with Amgen, so long as a patent infringement proceeding by a third party against Amgen continues for the manufacture, use or sale of cinacalcet HCl in any country, Amgen may reserve up to fifty percent of the royalties otherwise payable to the Company with respect to cinacalcet HCl sales in the country in question until the proceeding is concluded. On July 15, 2011, the Court entered an order dismissing Teva's claims with prejudice. This matter is now closed, and there is no longer a basis for Amgen to reserve cinacalcet HCl royalties payable to the Company with respect to this matter.

(10) Stock Options

During the year ended December 31, 2010, the Company's Board of Directors awarded a total of 1,130,700 performance condition options to certain of the Company's employees. Vesting of these options is subject to the Company achieving certain performance criteria established at the grant date and the individuals fulfilling a service condition (continued employment). As of June 30, 2011, the performance criteria of 95,000 of these options had been satisfied because the Company's Phase 3 pivotal study of GATTEX (teduglutide) had met the primary efficacy endpoint of reducing parenteral nutrition dependence in adult subjects with short bowel syndrome. These 95,000 options will vest and become exercisable based on the following vesting schedule: 25% on each of the first four anniversaries of the date of grant, which was February 20, 2010. The Company recognized $11,000 and $77,000 of compensation expense during the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, related to these options.

The Company utilized the Black-Scholes option pricing model to determine the grant date fair value of these awards. As of June 30, 2011, except for the 95,000 options discussed above, the Company does not believe that the achievement of the remaining performance criteria is probable and therefore, has not recognized any compensation expense related to these options during the three and six months ended June 30, 2011. Compensation expense will be recognized only once the performance condition is probable of being achieved and then only the cumulative amount related to the service condition that has been fulfilled.

(11) Capital Stock

In April 2011, the Company completed a public sale of 12,650,000 shares of its common stock at a per share price of $9.00. Net proceeds to the Company from the sale totaled approximately $106.8 million, after deducting expenses and the commission in connection with the offering paid by the Company.

In May 2011, the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment of the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of the Company (the "Certificate of Amendment") with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware. The Certificate of Amendment amended the Company's Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation by increasing the number of authorized shares of the Company's common stock from 105,000,000 to 175,000,000 shares.

(12) Recent Accounting Pronouncements

From time to time, new accounting pronouncements are issued by the FASB or other standard setting bodies that are adopted by the Company as of the specified effective date. Unless otherwise discussed, the Company believes that the impact of recently issued standards that are not yet effective will not have a material impact on its financial position, results of operations or disclosures upon adoption.

In June 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-05, Presentation of Comprehensive Income ("ASU 2011- 05"), an amendment to Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") Topic 220, Comprehensive Income. The update gives companies the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. The amendments in the update do not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income or when an item of other comprehensive income must be reclassified to net income. The ASU is effective for the Company for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011. The Company does not expect the impact of adopting this ASU to be material to the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In May 2011, the FASB issued FASB ASU 2011-04, Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs ("ASU 2011-04"), an amendment to FASB ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurement. The update revises the application of the valuation premise of highest and best use of an asset, the application of premiums and discounts for fair value determination, as well as the required disclosures for transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 fair value measures and the highest and best use of nonfinancial assets. The update provides additional disclosures regarding Level 3 fair value measurements and clarifies certain other existing disclosure requirements. The ASU is effective for the Company for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011. The Company does not expect the impact of adopting this ASU to be material to the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In December, 2010, the FASB issued ASU 2010-28, "Intangibles-Goodwill and Other (Topic 350) When to Perform Step 2 of the Goodwill Impairment Test for Reporting Units with Zero or Negative Carrying Amounts". The objective of this ASU is to address diversity in practice in the application of goodwill impairment testing by entities with reporting units with zero or negative carrying amounts, eliminating an entity's ability to assert that a reporting unit is not required to perform Step 2 because the carrying amount of the reporting unit is zero or negative despite the existence of qualitative factors that indicate the goodwill is more likely than not impaired. The Company adopted this ASU on January 1, 2011. The adoption of this ASU did not have a material impact on the Company's financial position or results of operations.

In April 2010, the FASB issued ASU 2010-17, Revenue Recognition - Milestone Method (Topic 605): Milestone Method of Revenue Recognition ("ASU 2010-17"). ASU 2010-17 provides guidance on applying the milestone method to milestone payments for achieving specified performance measures when those payments are related to uncertain future events. Under the ASU, entities can make an accounting policy election to recognize arrangement consideration received for achieving specified performance measures during the period in which the milestones are achieved, provided certain criteria are met for the milestones to be considered substantive. The Company made an accounting policy election to recognize arrangement consideration received for achieving specified performance measures during the period in which the milestones are achieved, and adopted this ASU on January 1, 2011 on a prospective basis. The adoption of this ASU did not have a material impact on the Company's financial position or results of operations.

In October 2009, the FASB issued ASU 2009-13, Multiple-Deliverable Revenue Arrangements, ("ASU 2009- 13"). ASU 2009-13, amends existing revenue recognition accounting pronouncements that are currently within the scope of ASC Subtopic 605-25 (previously included within EITF Issue No. 00-21, Revenue Arrangements with Multiple Deliverables). ASU 2009-13 provides accounting principles and application guidance on how the arrangement should be separated, and the consideration allocated. This guidance changes how to determine the fair value of undelivered products and services for separate revenue recognition. Allocation of consideration is now based upon management's estimate of the selling price for an undelivered item when there is no other means to determine the fair value of that undelivered item. The Company adopted this ASU on January 1, 2011 prospectively for revenue arrangements entered into or materially modified on or after January 1, 2011. The adoption of this ASU did not have a material impact on the Company's financial position or results of operations.

Overview

We are a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of orphan products for patients with rare gastrointestinal and endocrine disorders. Our lead clinical programs involve two proprietary therapeutic proteins to restore or replace biological function: (a) teduglutide, our analog of GLP-2, a peptide involved in the regeneration and repair of the intestinal lining, that is in Phase 3 clinical development as GATTEX® (planned brand name) for short bowel syndrome ("SBS") and (b) NPSP558, our recombinant full-length human parathyroid hormone (rhPTH (1-84)) that is in Phase 3 clinical development as a hormone replacement therapy for hypoparathyroidism, a rare hormone deficiency disorder in which patients are physiologically unable to regulate the levels of calcium and phosphates in their blood due to insufficient levels of endogenous parathyroid hormone ("PTH").

While SBS and hypoparathyroidism are relatively rare disorders, we believe these indications represent substantial commercial opportunities to us due to the significant unmet need and lack of effective therapies, as well as the serious complications and chronic nature of both disorders.

We have incurred cumulative losses from inception through June 30, 2011 of approximately $969.5 million. We expect to continue to incur significant operating losses over at least the next several years as we continue our current and anticipated development projects. Activities that will increase our future operating losses include current and future clinical trials with teduglutide and NPSP558; activities to obtain FDA approval to market teduglutide and NPSP558 in the U.S.; and manufacturing and commercial-readiness costs for teduglutide and NPSP558 in the U.S.

Revenues. Substantially all our revenues are from royalties, license fees, milestone payments and product sales from our licensees and collaborators. These revenues fluctuate from quarter to quarter. Our revenues were $27.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 compared to $24.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2010. We recognized revenue under our research and license agreements during the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, as follows (amounts in thousands):

      Three Months Ended
      June 30,
      2011     2010
Royalties:            
     Sensipar and Mimpara (cinacalcet HC1)   $ 22,604    $ 20,290 
     Preotact (parathyroid hormone (PTH 1-84))     2,258      2,054

The increase in royalty revenue earned from Amgen's sales of Sensipar and Mimpara (cinacalcet HCl) for the three months ended June 30, 2011 was primarily due to increased demand. Amgen pays royalties on sales of Sensipar and Mimpara directly to a wholly owned subsidiary of NPS and the royalties are used to repay non-recourse debt issued in August 2007; therefore, we do not receive any such royalty payments.

For the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, our revenues related to our agreement with Nycomed for Preotact were $2.3 million and $2.1 million in royalty revenue, respectively. The increase was primarily due to changes in foreign exchange that favorably impacted royalty revenue earned from Nycomed's sales of Preotact in the three months ended June 30, 2011. The increase was partially offset by decreased demand and reductions in the reimbursement rates of Preotact in certain European countries. In July 2007, we sold our rights to receive certain future royalty payments from Nycomed's sale of Preotact in Europe to DRI Capital ("DRI"), therefore we do not receive any such royalty payments.

During the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, we recognized royalty revenue of $1.9 million and $1.3 million, respectively, from Kyowa Hakko Kirin for sales of REGPARA. In February 2010, we sold our rights to receive certain future royalty payments from Kyowa Hakko Kirin's sale of REGPARA to an affiliate of DRI. The agreement provides DRI with the right to receive payments related to sales of REGPARA occurring on or after July 1, 2009.

During the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, we recognized royalty revenue of $494,000 and $287,000, respectively, from Ortho-McNeil Pharmaceutical, Inc. for sales of Nucynta.

Cost of Royalties. We recorded cost of royalties of $500,000 and $0 during the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. The cost of royalties during the three months ended June 30, 2011 is due to the achievement of a threshold for cumulative sales of Preotact which resulted in us owing a $500,000 milestone during the second quarter of 2011.

Research and Development. Our research and development expenses are primarily comprised of the fees paid and costs reimbursed to outside professionals to conduct research, preclinical and clinical trials, and to manufacture drug compounds and related supplies prior to FDA approval, as well as personnel-related costs for our employees related to development activities. For the three months ended June 30, 2011, our research and development expenses increased to $17.1 million from $15.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010. The increase in research and development expenses primarily related to a $2.8 million increase in outside services principally due to higher levels of activity in our ongoing clinical studies and a $804,000 increase in personnel and related costs primarily due to the advancement of our registration programs for teduglutide and NPSP558. These costs were partially offset by a reduction of $2.9 million due to the timing of production runs of commercial-scale batches for the three months ended June 30, 2011.

18


General and Administrative. Our general and administrative expenses consist primarily of professional fees, the costs of our management and administrative staff and administrative expenses. Our general and administrative expenses increased to $5.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 from $4.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010. The increase in general and administrative expenses primarily related to a $545,000 increase in market research and a $687,000 increase in outside legal costs and other administrative costs for the three months ended June 30, 2011.

Interest Income. Interest income increased to $109,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 from $89,000 from the comparative period in 2010, primarily due to higher average cash, cash equivalent and marketable investment securities balances in 2011 compared with 2010.

Interest Expense. Our interest expense for the three months ended June 30, 2011 decreased to $10.3 million compared to $11.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010. Our long-term royalty forecasts for Sensipar and Mimpara, Preotact and REGPARA are used in conjunction with the calculation of interest expense related to our non-recourse debt. Interest expense decreased primarily due to (i) the final principal payment of $46.2 million on March 30, 2011 on the Class A Bonds ($1.1 million) and (ii) a reduction in principal outstanding due to the conversion of $30.6 million of our 5.75% convertible notes ($425,000). These decreases in interest expense were partially offset by increases in interest expense due to (i) an increased balance on the notes Class B Notes due to the issuance of paid-in-kind notes for interest accrued during 2010 ($328,000) and (ii) a higher effective interest rate due to an increase in the forecast of Preotact royalties on non-recourse debt associated with our Preotact royalties ($223,000).

Total milestones and license fees     5,025      2,025 
             
Total revenues   $ 50,786    $ 44,317 

The increase in royalty revenue earned from Amgen's sales of Sensipar and Mimpara (cinacalcet HCl) for the six months ended June 30, 2011 was primarily due to demand. The $2.0 million milestone revenue earned from Amgen for Sensipar and Mimpara during the six months ended June 30, 2010 was for their initiation of a Phase 3 study of Sensipar in primary hyperparathyroidism in March 2010.

For the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, our revenues related to our agreement with Nycomed for Preotact were $4.5 million and $4.4 million in royalty revenue, respectively. The increase was primarily due to changes in foreign exchange that favorably impacted royalty revenue earned from Nycomed's sales of Preotact in the six months ended June 30, 2011. The increase was partially offset by decreased demand and reductions in the reimbursement rates of Preotact in certain European countries.

For the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, our revenues related to our agreement with Nycomed for teduglutide were $5.0 million and $0 in milestone and license fees, respectively. The $5.0 million milestone revenue earned during the six months ended June 30, 2011, was for Nycomed's submission of a Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for clearance to market teduglutide (Revestive®) as a once-daily subcutaneous treatment for short bowel syndrome (SBS).

During the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, we recognized royalty revenue of $3.5 million and $2.5 million, respectively, from Kyowa Hakko Kirin for sales of REGPARA. In February 2010, we sold our rights to receive certain future royalty payments from Kyowa Hakko Kirin's sale of REGPARA to an affiliate of DRI. The agreement provides DRI with the right to receive payments related to sales of REGPARA occurring on or after July 1, 2009.

During the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, we recognized royalty revenue of $943,000 and $509,000, respectively, from Ortho for sales of Nucynta, which was launched in the second quarter of 2009.

Cost of Royalties. We recorded cost of royalties of $500,000 and $0 during the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. The cost of royalties during the six months ended June 30, 2011 is due to the achievement of a threshold for cumulative sales of Preotact which resulted in us owing a $500,000 milestone during the second quarter of 2011.

Cost of License Fees. Our cost of license fees primarily relate to fees owed to third parties for the licensing of teduglutide to Nycomed. We recorded cost of license fees of $2.5 million and $6,000 during the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.

20


Research and Development. Our research and development expenses are primarily comprised of the fees paid and costs reimbursed to outside professionals to conduct research, preclinical and clinical trials, and to manufacture drug compounds and related supplies prior to FDA approval, as well as personnel-related costs for our employees who are dedicated to development activities. For the six months ended June 30, 2011, our research and development expenses increased to $32.0 million from $25.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010. The increase in research and development expenses primarily related to a $5.7 million increase in outside services principally due to higher levels of activity in our ongoing clinical studies and a $1.7 million increase in personnel and related costs primarily due to the advancement of our registration programs for teduglutide and NPSP558. These costs were partially offset by a reduction of $1.3 million due to the timing of production runs of commercial-scale batches for the six months ended June 30, 2011.

General and Administrative. Our general and administrative expenses consist primarily of professional fees, the costs of our management and administrative staff and administrative expenses. Our general and administrative expenses increased to $10.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 from $8.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010. The increase in general and administrative expenses primarily related to a $1.1 million increase in market research and a $596,000 increase in other outside administrative costs for the six months ended June 30, 2011.

Interest Income. Interest income decreased to $190,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 from $239,000 from the comparative period in 2010, primarily due to lower interest rates on our investments.

Interest Expense. Our interest expense decreased to $20.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 from $24.5 million for the comparable period in 2010. Our long-term royalty forecasts for Sensipar and Mimpara, Preotact and REGPARA are used in conjunction with the calculation of interest expense related to our non-recourse debt. The decrease in interest expense is due primarily to (i) the final payment of the Class A Notes of $46.2 million on March 30, 2011 ($5.5 million), (ii) a lower effective interest rate due to a decrease in the forecast of Preotact royalties on non-recourse debt associated with our Preotact royalties ($674,000) and (iii) a reduction in principal outstanding due to the conversion of $33.5 million of our 5.75% convertible notes ($453,000). These reductions were partially offset by increased interest expense on the (i) Class B Notes ($1.3 million) due to an increased balance on the notes due to the issuance of paid-in-kind notes for interest accrued and (ii) non-recourse debt associated with the sale of certain of our REGPARA royalty rights in February 2010 ($1.4 million).

Gain on Sale of Marketable Investment Securities. We recorded a gain on sale of marketable investment securities of $0 and $3.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, related primarily to the sale of certain auction rate securities.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

The following table summarizes selected financial data (amounts in thousands):

          June 30,         December 31,
      2011     2010
Cash, cash equivalents, and marketable investment securities   $ 202,366    $ 133,771 
Total assets     253,272      228,905 
Current debt     17,175      55,843 
Non-current debt     235,207      294,256 
Stockholders' deficit   $ (27,317)   $ (155,275)

Currently, we are not a self-sustaining business and certain economic, operational and strategic factors may require us to secure additional funds. If we are unable to obtain sufficient funding at any time in the future, we may not be able to develop or commercialize our products, take advantage of business opportunities or respond to competitive pressures. Our current and anticipated operations require substantial capital. We expect that our existing capital resources including interest earned thereon will be sufficient to fund our current and planned operations through at least the next twelve months; however, our actual needs will depend on numerous factors, including the progress and scope of our internally funded development and commercialization activities; our ability to comply with the terms of our research funding agreements; our ability to maintain existing collaborations; our decision to seek additional collaborators; the success of our collaborators in developing and marketing products under their respective collaborations with us; our success in producing clinical and commercial supplies of our product candidates on a timely basis sufficient to meet the needs of our clinical trials and commercial launch; the costs we incur in obtaining and enforcing patent and other proprietary rights or gaining the freedom to operate under the patents of others; and our success in acquiring and integrating complementary products, technologies or businesses. Our clinical trials may be modified or terminated for

21


several reasons including the risk that our product candidates will demonstrate safety concerns; the risk that regulatory authorities may not approve our product candidates for further development or may require additional or expanded clinical trials to be performed; and the risk that our manufacturers may not be able to supply sufficient quantities of our drug candidates to support our clinical trials or commercial launch, which could lead to a disruption or cessation of the clinical trials or commercial activities. We may also be required to conduct unanticipated preclinical or clinical trials to obtain regulatory approval of our product candidates, teduglutide and NPSP558. If any of the events that pose these risks comes to fruition, our actual capital needs may substantially exceed our anticipated capital needs and we may have to substantially modify or terminate current and planned clinical trials or postpone conducting future clinical trials. As a result, our business may be materially harmed, our stock price may be adversely affected, and our ability to raise additional capital may be impaired.

We will need to raise additional funds to support our long-term research, product development, and commercialization programs. We regularly consider various fund raising alternatives, including, for example, partnering of existing programs, monetizing of potential revenue streams, debt or equity financing and merger and acquisition alternatives. We may also seek additional funding through strategic alliances, collaborations, or license agreements and other financing mechanisms. There can be no assurance that additional financing will be available on acceptable terms, if at all. If adequate funds are not available, we may be required to delay, reduce the scope of, or eliminate one or more of our research and development programs, or to obtain funds through arrangements with licensees or others that may require us to relinquish rights to certain of our technologies or product candidates that we may otherwise seek to develop or commercialize on our own.

We require cash to fund our operating expenses, to make capital expenditures, acquisitions and investments and to service our debt. We have financed operations since inception primarily through payments received under collaborative research and license agreements, the private and public issuance and sale of equity securities, and the issuance and sale of non-recourse debt, convertible debt and lease financing. Through June 30, 2011, we have recognized $574.0 million of cumulative revenues from payments for research support, license fees, product sales, milestone and royalty payments, $774.3 million from the sale of equity securities for cash and $593.6 million from the sale of non-recourse debt and convertible debt for cash.

Our principal sources of liquidity are cash, cash equivalents, and marketable investment securities, which totaled $202.4 million at June 30, 2011. The primary objectives for our marketable investment security portfolio are liquidity and safety of principal. Investments are intended to achieve the highest rate of return to us, consistent with these two objectives. Our investment policy limits investments to certain types of instruments issued by institutions with investment grade credit ratings and places restrictions on maturities and concentration by type and issuer.

In January 2011 and April 2011, certain holders of the 5.75% Convertible Notes converted portions of the outstanding notes at a conversion price of $5.44 per share. We issued 529,282 and 5,620,445 shares pursuant to this conversion and retired $2.9 million and $30.6 million, respectively, of the outstanding 5.75% Convertible Notes. We have $16.5 million of the 5.75% Convertible Notes outstanding as of June 30, 2011.

In April 2011, we sold 12,650,000 shares of our common stock at a price of $9.00 per share in an underwritten public offering. Net proceeds, after underwriting discounts and offering expenses, were approximately $106.8 million.

The following table summarizes our cash flow activity for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010 (amounts in thousands):

      Six Months Ended
      June 30,
      2011     2010
Net cash used in operating activities   $ (24,299)   $ (10,197)
Net cash used in investing activities   $ (9,792)   $ (6,917)
Net cash provided by financing activities   $ 94,582    $ 68,085 

Net cash used in operating activities was $24.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared to net cash used in operating activities of $10.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010. The increase in net cash used in 2011 was primarily related to the increased spending in research and development due to the advancement of our registration programs for teduglutide and NPSP558.

22


Net cash used in investing activities was $9.8 million and $6.9 million during the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. The net cash used in investing activities was primarily the result of investing excess cash that was not currently required to fund operations. Capital expenditures for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010 were $1.0 million and $166,000, respectively.

Net cash provided by financing activities was $94.6 million and $68.1 million during the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. Cash provided by financing activities during the six months ended June 30, 2011 primarily consisted of the $106.9 million received from the public sale of common shares in April 2011 and approximately $1.1 million received from the exercise of employee stock options and the sale of shares for the employee stock purchase plan. The decrease in our restricted cash balance of $50.8 million was due to making principal and cash sweep premium payments on our Class A Notes and our Class B Notes net of increases from cash received for royalty payments. These were offset by making principal and cash sweep premium payments on our Class A Notes and Class B Notes and DRI Preotact-secured Non-recourse debt totaling $64.3 million. Cash provided by financing activities during the six months ended June 30, 2010 primarily consisted of the $53.2 million received from the public sale of common shares in April 2010 and the $38.4 million received from the sale of REGPARA royalty rights to DRI Capital. The decrease in our restricted cash balance of $26.7 million was due to making principal and cash sweep premium payments on our Class A Notes net of increases from cash received for royalty payments. These were offset by principal payments of $50.7 million on our Class A Notes, DRI REGPARA Notes and capital lease obligation.

We could receive future milestone payments from all our agreements of up to $213.1 million in the aggregate if each of our current licensees accomplishes the specified research and/or development milestones provided in the respective agreements. In addition, all of the agreements require the licensees to make royalty payments to us if they sell products covered by the terms of our license agreements; however, we do not control the subject matter, timing or resources applied by our licensees to their development programs. Thus, potential receipt of milestone and royalty payments from these licensees is largely beyond our control. Each of these agreements may be terminated before its scheduled expiration date by the respective licensee either for any reason or under certain conditions.

Depending on the commercial success of certain of our products, we may be required to pay license fees or royalties. For example, we are required to make royalty payments to certain licensors on teduglutide net sales and cinacalcet HCl royalty revenues. We expect to enter into additional sponsored research and license agreements in the future.

We have entered into long-term agreements with certain manufacturers and suppliers that require us to make contractual payment to these organizations. We expect to enter into collaborative research, contract research, manufacturing, and supplier agreements in the future, which may require up-front payments and long-term commitments of cash.

Item 3.

Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

Interest Rate Risk. Our interest rate risk exposure results from our investment portfolio, our convertible notes, and our non-recourse notes. Our primary objectives in managing our investment portfolio are to preserve principal, maintain proper liquidity to meet operating needs and maximize yields. The securities we hold in our investment portfolio are subject to interest rate risk. At any time, significant changes in interest rates can affect the fair value of the investment portfolio and its interest earnings. After a review of our marketable investment securities, we believe that in the event of a hypothetical ten percent increase in interest rates, the resulting decrease in fair market value of our marketable investment securities would be insignificant to the consolidated financial statements. Currently, we do not hedge these interest rate exposures. We have established policies and procedures to manage exposure to fluctuations in interest rates. We place our investments with high quality issuers and limit the amount of credit exposure to any one issuer and do not use derivative financial instruments in our investment portfolio. We invest in highly liquid, investment-grade securities and money market funds of various issues, types and maturities. These securities are

classified as available for sale and, consequently, are recorded on the balance sheet at fair value with unrealized gains or losses reported as accumulated other comprehensive income as a separate component in stockholders' deficit, unless a loss is considered other than temporary, in which case the loss is recognized in earnings.

Our 5.75% Convertible Notes due 2014 and our 15.5% non-recourse Class B Notes due 2017, each have a fixed interest rate. As of June 30, 2011, our Convertible Notes and Class B Notes had $16.5 million and $150.3 million, respectively, in aggregate principal amount outstanding. The fair value of the Convertible Notes is affected by changes in the interest rates and by changes in the price of our common stock. The fair value of the Class B Notes are affected by changes in interest rates and by historical and projected rates of royalty revenues from cinacalcet HCl sales.

Foreign Currency Risk. We have significant clinical and commercial-scale manufacturing agreements which are denominated in Euros and Canadian Dollars. As a result, our financial results could be affected by factors such as a change in the foreign currency exchange rate between the U.S. dollar and the Canadian dollar or Euro, or by weak economic conditions in Canada or Europe. When the U.S. dollar strengthens against the Canadian dollar or Euros, the cost of expenses in Canada or Europe decreases. When the U.S. dollar weakens against the Canadian dollar or Euro, the cost of expenses in Canada or Europe increases. The monetary assets and liabilities in our foreign subsidiary which are impacted by the foreign currency fluctuations are cash, accounts payable, and certain accrued liabilities. A hypothetical ten percent increase or decrease in the exchange rate between the U.S. dollar and the Canadian dollar or Euro from the March 31, 2011 rate would cause the fair value of such monetary assets and liabilities in our foreign subsidiary to change by an insignificant amount. We are not currently engaged in any foreign currency hedging activities.

Item 4.

Controls and Procedures.

We maintain "disclosure controls and procedures" within the meaning of Rule 13a-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act. Our disclosure controls and procedures, or Disclosure Controls, are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports we file under the Exchange Act, such as this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's rules and forms. Our Disclosure Controls are also designed to ensure that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating our Disclosure Controls, management recognized that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating and implementing possible controls and procedures.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures. As of June 30, 2011, we evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company's disclosure controls and procedures, which was done under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer. Immediately following the Signatures section of the Quarterly report on Form 10-Q are certifications of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, which are required in accordance with Rule 13a-14 of the Exchange Act. This Controls and Procedures section includes the information concerning the controls evaluation referred to in the certifications and it should be read in conjunction with the certifications for a more complete understanding of the topics presented. Based on the controls evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that as of the date of their evaluation, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective to accomplish their intended purpose.

Change in Internal Control over Financial Reporting. There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during our most recent fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
