In their recent press release one number that I was deeply interested in was the growth in the number of physicians ordering Cologaurd tests for the first time.

"Nearly 9,000 healthcare providers ordered their first Cologuard test during the first quarter, and 110,000 (rounded) have ordered since the test was launched."

With an 87% yoy growth in the number of tests on a 9% growth in the base of physicians who are utilizing the test it looks like this is becoming a solid choice for colon cancer screening.

Cost of sales grew by %35, while R & D kept pace with the overall growth by increasing by %87. G and A were up %77 and Sales and Marketing spending %37. The only number that grew that I view as a disappointment was the overall loss per share staying around (.33) on more shares. Still, I have no expectation that EXAS will be profitable for several more years as the number of tests performed continues to increase.
