NOTE 8 — ACCRUED SEVERANCE BENEFITS
In December 2015, the Company adopted a plan to reduce its operating expenses, following its decision to discontinue joint development of evofosfamide under its former collaboration with Merck KGaA. The plan included a reduction of approximately 40 full-time employees in both research and development and to a lesser extent general and administrative areas of the Company. As a result of the staffing reduction, the Company incurred expenses related to severance benefits of approximately $2.5 million during the quarter ended December 31, 2015, which included approximately $0.2 million of noncash stock compensation expense related to the extension of post-termination exercise period for the outstanding vested stock options for the affected employees. The payout of the accrued expenses related to severance benefits at December 31, 2015 was completed during the first quarter of 2016.
The entire disclosure for restructuring and related activities. Description of restructuring activities such as exit and disposal activities, include facts and circumstances leading to the plan, the expected plan completion date, the major types of costs associated with the plan activities, total expected costs, the accrual balance at the end of the period, and the periods over which the remaining accrual will be settled.
