Thank you, Ann Marie and good morning and thank you for joining us. I'd like to extend a particular welcome this morning to our listeners and (inaudible) the United States. Kamada Limited achieved (inaudible) quarter is a highlights including our successful IPO on the NASDAQ, as well as the expansion of our U.S. strategic distribution agreement with Baxter.
Our U.S. IPO significantly strengthened our balance sheet and gives us the platform for (inaudible) Kamada's levels. It provides us the capital to expand and accelerate our pharmaceutical development programs and puts us in a stronger position in any potential licensing or partnership discussions or negotiations.
We also achieved 17% revenue growth and strong EBITDA of over $4 million, magnificent progress, advancing our clinical trials, fortifying our patent portfolio and receive GMP compliance certification for Israel.
But before I go in to greater detail on the business, let me turn over to Gil Efron who will provide you with more financial detail on the global. So Gil remarks, I will provide a brief business update. And we then will we call for you for questions. Gil please?
Thank you, David and good morning everyone. As reported in our press release, we made solid progress in the second quarter. We are pleased with this performance and look forward to delivering ongoing topline growth and profitability while continuing to make prudent investments in our clinical development pipeline and manufacturing processes.
Let's turn to review of our results. Total revenue for the second quarter 2013 increased 17% to $16.1 million, with proprietary product revenue mainly attributed to the $4.5 million funds achieved under the agreement with Baxter, partially offset by expected declines from the distributed product.
Revenue from Proprietary Products segment increased 70% to $11.9 million and revenue from the distributed product declined 37% to $4.2 million compared to the same quarter last year. For the first half of 2013, proprietary products revenue was $20 million up slightly from $19.2 million for the same period in 2012.
Revenue in the Distribution segment declined 37% to $8.8 million. As previously reported due to the timing of orders from Baxter we expect a [steady] product revenue to be much lower in the second half of the year, which is reflected in the [guidance] we provided in April for $54 million revenues from our Proprietary Products segment for the entire year of 2013.
Given today’s financial report this implies that the $4 million in the second half of 2013 which we believe would be [worked] to the fourth quarter. Turning to the rest of the P&L, R&D expenses in the second quarter of 2013 of $2.6 million up were largely in line with the $2.7 million in the second quarter of 2012.
And were down from $3.7 million in the first quarter of this year as accepted. (inaudible) 2013 R&D expenses were $6.3 million compared to $6.2 million a year ago. SG&A expenses in the second quarter of 2013 was $3.2 million increased from $1.6 million in the prior year and included a one-time management compensation payment of $1.4 million associated with the successful US IPO.
SG&A for the first half of 2013 increased to $12.9 million from $4 million in 2012. Gross profit for the second quarter of 2013 rose to $7.4 million from $3.3 million a year ago while gross margin expanded to 46% from 24% in the second quarter of 2012. Gross margin expansion is due to milestone revenues under the technology transfer agreement with Baxter.
