  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "Numbers out of the Way. Yes, 2Q17 revenue growth was impacted several factors: implementation of updated rates and commercial private payers (20% of the market) and sampling by a competitor. Yes, unfortunately these headwinds will remain in place for the rest of the year, coupled with the impact of the hurricanes (TX and FL represents 7% of overall sales). Accordingly, we have lowered our 2017 revenue estimate from $167 million to $158 million.
