  • R&D expenses increased to $37.6 million in 3Q13, compared to $36.7 million in 2Q13. The increase was primarily due to an $6.8 million increase in R&D expenses associated with higher R&D activities from quarter to quarter, partially offset by a $6.0 million increase in funding of R&D contracts from the government, which was $9.0 million in 3Q13, compared to $3.0 million in 2Q13.
  • General and administrative expenses decreased to $24.7 million in 3Q13, down 42.0% QoQ from $42.6 million in 2Q13, mainly due to a decrease of employee bonus accrual in 3Q13.
  • Other operating income was $8.2 million in 3Q13, compared to $33.1 million in 2Q13, and consisted mainly of the gain arising from the disposal of part of the Company-owned living quarters in Shanghai. This 75.3% decrease from 2Q13 was mainly due to a one-time gain recorded in 2Q13 arising from the disposal of the Company's total ownership interest in SMIC (Wuhan) Development Corporation.

  • The change of other gains or losses was mainly due to a decrease of revenue from our schools as a result of summer vacation.
