    Easy to understand: They have tiered royaltys (Promacta/Kyprolis) which are booked one qtr after sales. So Q1 has higher royalties because for example Promacta royalties from Q4 are higher - cause sales from the year in total are higher. Q2 has low royalty rate for Promacta, cause new year starts with lowest royalty rate/0 revenue.
