that bit. a just of help So understand kind little me

Douglas VanOort

address if to mind that over you it turn Brian. just don’t will Shovlin Rob I to

Robert Shovlin

Yes, Rob. hi, this is

the commercial So weeks we six pretty quickly organization close. of integrated within our

sales NEO legacy so So the redrawn are each the new the of now sales Genoptix themselves boundaries, have legacy client. and are legacy these Genoptix reps have introducing and organization, clients, reps we reps that when for now we NeoGenomics to territory one

newly So changes will getting and to time with new and need the clients on items, as any need to integration acclimated integration. their our based clients we on then they their spend we move with structured forward educate territory

existing base their those not clients, territories. distractions aggressively what are there managing they are of So would we selling in the where some new but call

Sharon Virag

probably would I to add that.

example bringing think you for together are becoming example, the including going If that one have it, on are moving for are billing. systems to we system, they about we and to

sure participating customers billing there want over the connection Genoptix up to in just moving are these system those to can is make distraction, they So sales customers. system be from that we with that are happen, our to billing for is folks happen with one has to those has and example that their also education resetting there those

Douglas VanOort

I losing will thing correct, customers. of it’s about said one you Brian, you talked just kind

is XX of the high a customers rate don’t we customers and very expect this. lose retention of Our to as in result

Brian Weinstein

understand future about little give to continue. the those the expect think that in and were the that. XX% some up specific can think about that the more a totally clarification. bit me G&A we do sales somewhere investments talked of and you Thanks. investments quarter, of of Thinking made, and on Thanks you made, growth have you it you have No, you have I marketing should investments some types a for

Douglas VanOort

to that pace investment number investments our You have in FDA FDA making example, the added we that added are say expect submission The globally. year-over-year increase. we a facilities comply would of but Assay of continue, the We process to at included I not should investments process. with people

advanced and has so a are menu we we lot say great that investing the up-to-date investing area growth. China, sure that science. scientifically make well. that of have test our so in know in Europe, are for most as in is in in that and are we things I IT, technologically Generally happening we our people out there exploring added facilities menu and to facilities You there in Singapore, been of we technology intend would is investment

and made to see expect growth of have being some are growth in All some XXXX. we these that to related are activities of visibility these because we

pretty made So have looks like we number I normally good that a about think the it's we feel investments it though the higher than even little bit would be.

Brian Weinstein

Okay. And one I in sneak here. if last could question for me, more

kind just of of sure pacing forward, know be quarters business Thanks. we you side given that here. quarterly kind out the difficult that about pacing, the that or side, call on haven’t just - might that or for going this as to on details. as heard don’t about think make to the we I any all the we of want think legacy either of really would comps things Genoptix Just

Douglas VanOort

in don’t NeoGenomics. there that mirror quarterly What far if filings, seasonality volume is a you Genoptix in so the the are volume that think Brian had seeing can stabilization stabilized. previously revenue look the about see The I declined usual is we - is past, you Yes. the SEC of at anything Genoptix. XXXX of at legacy now pacing and that would the

there So I you alert would no that unusual to. trends are

Sharon Virag

right, I the those Yes, happens start our there related the will kick business already synergies little backend. excited we will immediately will a one when versus payers those over know just and of this in. Revenue to is are to compression, to unfold come so quickly that that plan and bad about really the synergies are we a thing trend it, think towards so great overtime overtime, is think news seeing to have in bit Genoptix really deal about be a we on was we will you them expect moving that contracted interested

a see synergies. meet they two early compression those we bit but as possible, trending will the for start that you little tracks, earlier as will so of different than So that on hope are

Brian Weinstein

guys Very Great. much. so you Thank helpful.

Douglas VanOort

Thank you Brian.

Operator

Raymond Please sir. ahead the question go with Hsu of line Our comes James. next from John
