year ended June 30, 2016. We had net income of approximately $9.4 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2015 and a net loss of approximately $85.3 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2014.
For the nine months ended March 31, 2017, our net cash used in operations was approximately $56.7 million. We have historically funded our operations from upfront fees and license and milestone payments received under our drug collaborations and license agreements, the sale of equity securities, and debt provided by convertible debt and other credit facilities.
We entered into a Sales Agreement with Cantor Fitzgerald & Co., or Cantor, dated March 27, 2013, which has subsequently been amended to permit the sale by Cantor, acting as our sales agent, of up to $75.0 million in additional shares of our common stock from time to time in an at-the-market offering. All sales of shares have been and will continue to be made pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 filed with the SEC. We pay Cantor a commission of approximately 2% of the aggregate gross proceeds we receive from all sales of our common stock under the Sales Agreement. The amended Sales Agreement continues indefinitely until either party terminates the Sales Agreement, which may be done on 10 days' prior written notice. We received net proceeds of approximately $19.6 million and $2.9 million on sales under the Sales Agreement during the nine months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively, and totaling $142.6 million from September 2013 to December 31, 2016. As of March 31, 2017, there is approximately $52.4 million available for future issuance under the Sales Agreement.
We accrued a liability of approximately $5.8 million at both September 30, 2016 and June 30, 2016 for estimated fiscal year 2016 annual employee bonuses. Under our annual performance bonus program, employees may receive a bonus payable in cash or in shares of our common stock if we meet certain financial, discovery, development and partnering goals during a fiscal year. Annual employee bonuses are typically paid in the second quarter of the next fiscal year. In October 2016, we paid approximately $5.8 million in cash bonuses to our employees under this performance bonus plan.
On September 2, 2016, we entered into a Note Purchase Agreement with Redmile from which we received net proceeds of $9.8 million, as further discussed in Note 4 - Debt to our unaudited condensed financial statements included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
On October 3, 2016, we closed an underwritten public offering of 21.2 million shares of our common stock, which included 2.8 million shares of common stock issued upon the exercise in full of the option to purchase additional shares granted to the underwriters in the offering, at a public offering price of $6.25 per share. The total net proceeds from the offering were $124.2 million, after underwriting discounts and commissions and offering expenses. Management believes that our cash, cash equivalents, marketable securities and accounts receivable as of March 31, 2017 will enable us to continue to fund operations in the normal course of business for at least the next 12 months. Until we can generate sufficient levels of cash from operations, which we do not expect to achieve in the next two years, and because sufficient funds may not be available to us when needed from existing collaborations, we expect that we will be required to continue to fund our operations in part through the sale of debt or equity securities, through licensing select programs, or partial economic rights that include upfront, royalty and/or milestone payments.
Our ability to successfully raise sufficient funds through the sale of debt or equity securities or from debt financing from lenders when needed is subject to many risks and uncertainties. Even if we are successful, future funding from equity issuances would result in dilution to our existing stockholders and any future debt or debt securities may contain covenants that limit our operations or ability to enter into certain transactions. We also may not successfully consummate new collaboration or license agreements that provide for upfront fees or milestone payments, or we may not earn milestone payments under such agreements when anticipated, or at all. Our ability to realize milestone or royalty payments under existing agreements and to enter into new arrangements that generate additional revenue through upfront fees and milestone or royalty payments is subject to a number of risks, many of which are beyond our control.
Our assessment of our future need for funding and our ability to continue to fund our operations is a forward-looking statement that is based on assumptions that may prove to be wrong and that involves substantial risks and uncertainties. Our actual future capital requirements could vary as a result of a number of factors. Please refer to our risk factors under the heading "Item 1A. Risk Factors" under Part II of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and under Part I of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2016, and in other reports we file with the SEC.
