(1)
For purposes of computing the ratio of earnings to fixed charges, earnings consist of our net loss from continuing operations for the period plus fixed charges. We had no capitalized interest during any period. Fixed charges consist of interest expense and an estimate of the interest portion of rental expense. The ratio of earnings to fixed charges was less than one-to-one for each of the periods presented.

(2)
Earnings were insufficient to cover fixed charges by $2.2 million in 2013, $16.4 million in 2014, $38.5 million in 2015 and $83.0 million in 2016.


USE OF PROCEEDS

We will set forth in the applicable prospectus supplement or free writing prospectus our intended use for the net proceeds received from the sale of any securities sold pursuant to the prospectus supplement or free writing prospectus. Pending these uses, we intend to invest the net proceeds in short- and intermediate-term, interest-bearing obligations, investment-grade instruments, certificates of deposit or direct or guaranteed obligations of the U.S. government.
