Financial Outlook for 2016

Based upon development plans and the Company’s awarded government contracts, BioCryst continues to expect its 2016 net operating cash use to be in the range of $55 to $75 million, and has revised its 2016 operating expenses to be in the range of $68 to $80 million, which reflects a reduction from the previous forecasted range of $78 to $98 million. BioCryst’s operating expense range excludes equity-based compensation expense due to the difficulty in reliably projecting this expense, as it is impacted by the volatility and price of the Company’s stock, as well as the vesting of the Company’s outstanding performance-based stock options.
