  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "GNMK’s 2Q18 revenue beat while its EPS missed consensus. Management reiterated its 2018 revenue and ePlex placement guidance. GNMK placed 39 ePlex systems in 2Q18, up from 32 in 1Q18 and above our estimate of 35. Increased utilization drove consumables revenue growth and GNMK’s gross margin improved from 1Q18. We believe the 2Q18 results are further evidence that the ePlex launch is gaining momentum. We continue to expect increased utilization of a growing ePlex installed base to continue to drive strong revenue growth (and eventually, improved gross margins) and we reiterate our Buy rating."
