Fourth Quarter 2019 Financial Results
Revenue was $75.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019, a 49% increase from $50.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018. 

Gross margin was 78% for the fourth quarter of 2019, as compared to 71% for the corresponding prior year period. The increase in gross margin was driven primarily by lower accrued royalties related to ongoing litigation.  

Operating expenses were $66.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, as compared to $110.6 million for the corresponding prior year period, a decrease of 40%. The prior year period included $40.1 million of in-process R&D as well as an incremental $30.4 million in accrued contingent liabilities.

Operating loss was $8.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, as compared to $75.0 million for the corresponding prior year period. This includes $5.1 million of stock-based compensation for the fourth quarter of 2019, as compared to $1.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2018.

Net loss was $7.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, as compared to $75.5 million for the corresponding prior year period.

Full Year 2019 Financial Results
Revenue was $245.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2019, a 68% increase from $146.3 million for 2018. 

Gross margin was 75% for full year 2019, as compared to 80% for 2018. The decrease in gross margin was driven primarily by higher accrued royalties related to ongoing litigation which impacted cost of revenue for the full year of 2019, whereas these accruals only impacted cost of revenue in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Operating expenses were $215.4 million for full year 2019, as compared to $228.4 million for 2018, a decrease of 6%. Operating expenses in 2018 included $62.4 million of in-process R&D as well as an incremental $29.1 million in accrued contingent liabilities.

Operating loss was $30.6 million for full year 2019, as compared to $110.8 million for 2018. This includes $13.3 million of stock-based compensation for full year 2019, as compared to $2.7 million for full year 2018.

Net loss was $31.3 million for full year 2019, as compared to $112.5 million for 2018.

Cash and cash equivalents were $424.2 million as of December 31, 2019.
