If you read the kickstarter page, they explain the financial situation and details. To quote what they said:

"We put everything we had into Defense Grid; we wanted the game to be able to reach a lot of people, and looking back we probably sold the game at too low a price. It paid for itís cost, but not enough for us to make DG2 on our own. "

This is a real shame. I liked Defense Grid a lot, but it seems like a lot of companies, even outside of the video games industry, are constantly on the verge of collapse simply because they didn't spend five minutes with anybody with ANY sort of economics background to determine their pricing scheme, regardless of how good their actual product is. (Iron Lore!)

Luckily for these guys, they are going to make a metric shitload through this Kickstarter. I can't even think of anybody I know who plays games who DIDN'T eventually get Defense Grid at some point in one of the various sales.

I'll probably contribute to this Kickstarter if I don't get utterly bled dry by these Steam sales.
