Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

We estimate that our cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were approximately $89.0 million as of December 31, 2017. This amount is preliminary and is subject to completion of financial closing procedures. As a result, this amount may differ from the amount that will be reflected in our financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2017. Based on our current plans, we estimate that the total cash used in 2018 to fund our operations, capital expenditures and debt amortization will not exceed $50.0 million.

The information in this report is being furnished and shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liability of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.

Forward-Looking Statements

This report contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Any statements in this report regarding our business that are not historical facts may be considered “forward-looking statements,” including, but not limited to, statements regarding our cash burn rate. Forward-looking statements are typically, but not always, identified by the use of words such as “may,” “would,” “believe,” “intend,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” and other similar terminology. Forward-looking statements are based on current expectations of management and upon what management believes to be reasonable assumptions based on information currently available to it, and are subject to risks and uncertainties. Such risks and uncertainties may cause actual results to differ materially from the expectations set forth in the forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, changes in plans, expenses or uses of our capital resources and unexpected events impacting our cash burn rate, as well as other risks detailed in our recent filings on Forms 10-K and 10-Q with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect new information, events or circumstances, or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.
