Third Quarter Financial Results Summary

Peak recognized $45,923 of gross royalty revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2012 compared to $2,326 in the comparable period of 2011. Net royalties (after deducting amortization of other assets, which is a non-cash expense) amounted to $26,788, compared to $2,326 in the prior year period. The royalty flows for the period stem from Peak's agreement with LongKey-Hong Kong Ltd. (LongKey).

Expenses for the three-month period ended September 30, 2012 amounted to $742,329 compared to $360,502 in the comparable period of 2011.

The third quarter expenses included R&D expenditures of $166,760 compared to $111,155 in the comparable period of 2011. These costs are before deducting investment tax credits, which are accounted for on an annual basis only.
