The net decrease in cash and short-term investments of $2.7 million was principally due to cash spent for operations and cash paid for principal and interest totaling $12.1 million related to the retirement of $17.0 million of convertible debt, which were partially offset by net proceeds from the sale of common stock to Cadila of $10.7 million and proceeds from the sale of stock under the ATM program of $14.0 million. Novavax believes that based on the balance of cash and short-term investments at June 30, 2009, along with the proceeds from its transaction with ROVI of $3.0 million and the proceeds of $8.0 million received from additional sales of stock under the ATM program in July 2009, it has sufficient funds to execute its current business plan for at least the next twelve months. Novavax may pursue additional funding through the potential sale of equity securities, other non-dilutive financing, or additional partnering agreements, as opportunities arise.
