Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition

Adjustment to Previously Reported Total Costs and Expenses

The following information under this Item 2.02 of Form 8-K is being furnished and not "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section. The information in this Item 2.02 shall not be incorporated by reference in any filing under the Exchange Act or the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.

On February 6, 2014, we issued a press release reporting our financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013 and furnished such press release in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 6, 2014.

On February 10, 2014, the compensation committee of our board of directors approved bonus awards for the 2013 performance period under our Executive Bonus Plan. In addition, the committee approved an increase in the aggregate bonus pool under our Employee Bonus Plan, which covers non-management and non-commissioned employees. On February 11, 2014, the non-employee members of our board of directors approved the determinations of the compensation committee with respect to our chief executive officer.

As permitted under the plans and described in greater detail under Item 5.02 below, our compensation committee exercised its permitted discretion to approve bonuses in amounts greater than the bonus targets previously established and recorded for the year ended December 31, 2013. As a result of the compensation committee's final award decisions, our total costs and expenses, as reflected in the financial statements we will file in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 will increase by $703,654, including a $123,626 increase in cost of product revenue, as compared with the total costs and expenses included in the statement of operations for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013 that were included in our February 6, 2014 press release. This change results in a net loss of $4.6 million and $16.5 million and loss per share of $0.18 and $0.65 for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013, respectively, as compared with a net loss of $3.9 million and $15.8 million, and loss per share of $0.15 and $0.62 respectively, as reported in the February 6, 2014 press release.

As previously disclosed, our compensation committee retains discretion under the Executive Bonus Plan to increase, reduce, or eliminate awards.
