FC consensus estimates are for $32 MM and a loss of ($0.23). As a reminder, SQNM announced preliminary 4Q12 top-line results on 1/6/13 which were $4 MM above consensus. 4Q12 volumes appeared to accelerate solidly in November & December with >60,000 MaterniT21 tests accessioned in 2012 and the year-end annual runrate north or 120,000. The 4Q12 number of tests accessioned was roughly 3k above our original estimate, which was particularly impressive given the holiday season.”
