First, uneven sales execution resulted in an imbalance between capturing fourth-quarter revenue and developing our Q1 2022 funnel of opportunities. Second, we believe this was compounded by the impact of changes made to re-align our expanded commercial team early in the year," said Brad Gray, President and CEO of NanoString."
