Delivery will be delayed to the first and second quarters of 2018 without incurring any additional costs. Additionally, the payment terms for the remainder of the contract were adjusted to shift $43.3m of milestone draws from the remainder of 2016 and 2017 into 2018.

The company posted second quarter revenues of $53.7m, down 30% from the first quarter of 2016.
