Table of Contents

(1) In December 2006, we entered into a credit and security agreement with Merrill Lynch Capital providing for the potential borrowing of up to $17.0 million. In March 2007, we drew down $10.0 million under the credit and security agreement, and as of that date, have paid non-refundable fees totaling approximately $113,000.
(2) Primarily represents costs incurred in connection with our credit and security agreement with Merrill Lynch Capital.
(3) License obligations do not include additional payments of up to $2.7 million due upon the occurrence of certain milestones related to regulatory or commercial events or potential payments of up to $5.7 million to Duke should we receive milestone payments from Cypress under our agreement with Cypress (up to $3.7 million excluding milestone payments unrelated to sleep apnea). We may also be required to pay royalties on any net sales of the licensed products. License payments may be increased based on the timing of various milestones and the extent to which the licensed technologies are pursued for other indications. These milestone payments and royalty payments under our license agreements are not included in the table above because we cannot, at this time, determine when or if the related milestones will be achieved or the events triggering the commencement of payment obligations will occur.
We also enter into agreements with third parties to manufacture our product candidates, conduct our clinical trials and perform data collection and analysis. Our payment obligations under these agreements depend upon the progress of our development programs. Therefore, we are unable at this time to estimate with certainty the future costs we will incur under these agreements.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In July 2006, FASB issued Interpretation, or FIN, No. 48, Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes — an interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109, or FIN 48. FIN 48 clarifies the recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. FIN 48 also provides guidance on recognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition. FIN 48 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2006. We will adopt this interpretation as required and are currently evaluating the requirements of FIN 48; however, we do not believe that its adoption will have a material effect on our financial statements.
In September 2006, the FASB issued FASB Statement No. 157, Fair Value Measurements, or SFAS 157, which defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value under generally accepted accounting principles, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. SFAS 157 applies to other accounting pronouncements that require or permit fair value measurements. The new guidance is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007, and for interim periods within those fiscal years. We are currently evaluating the requirements of SFAS 157; however, we do not believe that its adoption will have a material effect on our financial statements.
In September 2006, the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission issued Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 108, Considering the Effects of Prior Year Misstatements when Quantifying Misstatements in Current Year Financial Statements, or SAB 108. SAB 108 provides guidance on the consideration of the effects of prior year misstatements in quantifying current year misstatements for the purpose of determining whether the current year’s financial statements are materially misstated. SAB 108 is effective for our fiscal year beginning January 1, 2007, however, we do not believe that its adoption will have an effect on our financial statements.
