Upon the merger between Gemphire Therapeutics and NeuroBo Pharmaceuticals at year-end 2019, the formerly private NeuroBo was considered the accounting acquirer. In accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, the historical financial statements of private company, NeuroBo, are considered the financial statements of the combined company, with the merger accounted for as an acquisition of the Gemcabene family of related assets on December 30, 2019.

The approximately $0.3 million decrease in the second quarter of 2020 was primarily due to the overall reduction of clinical trial activity given the March 2020 decision to postpone Phase 3 clinical trials of NB-01. R&D expenses during the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 included stock-based compensation of $4,000 and $16,000, respectively.
- General and Administrative Expenses were $1.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020, compared with $0.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019. The increase of $0.8 million was primarily due to the ramp up costs associated with operating and reporting as a public company and to post-Merger support costs in the second quarter of 2020. Stock-based compensation costs during the three-month periods ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 were $0.2 million and $63,000, respectively.
