Third quarter 2018 sales and marketing expenses was $7.9 million compared to $6.2 million in the second quarter of 2018, and $2.1 million in third quarter 2017. The increase in sales and marketing expenses was primarily driven by an increase in compensation expense associated with adding additional sales personnel to support the U.S. launch and to continue expanding the distribution of Eversense in Europe.

Third quarter 2018 research and development expenses decreased $0.9 million compared to the second quarter of 2018 to $7.4 million and decreased $2.4 million compared to third quarter 2017. The decrease in research and development expenses compared to the second quarter of 2018 was primarily driven by decreases in regulatory work in support of the FDA approval.

Third quarter 2018 general and administrative expenses were $5.1 million, a decrease of $0.3 million compared to the second quarter of 2018 and an increase of $1.2 million compared to the third quarter of 2017. The decrease in general and administration expenses compared to the second quarter of 2018 was primarily driven by the timing of spending associated with supporting operational growth.

Net loss was $31.9 million, or $0.18 per share, in the third quarter of 2018, compared to $17.4 million, or $0.13 per share, in the third quarter of 2017. This compares to a second quarter 2018 net loss of $32.5 million, or $0.23 per share. This decrease in net loss compared to the second quarter of 2018 was driven primarily by a change in the fair value of the derivative liability.. Excluding the change in fair value of the derivative liability, third quarter 2018 net loss would have been $24.4 million, or $0.14 per share. Third quarter 2018 net loss per share was based on 176.3 million weighted average shares outstanding, compared to 128.9 million weighted average shares outstanding in the third quarter of 2017.

As of September 30, 2018, cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities were $163.0 million and outstanding indebtedness was $70.2 million.
