Key Points Here are the key things we look forward to gleaning from the quarterly call: What was the contribution from the large contracted payor signed up earlier? Were there any “pull-forward” sales? Were there any bulk purchases from any segment, including the VA? How did OpEx stack up in the quarter? How does Q4 growth reconcile with implied guidance in company commentary from the Q3-18 call? We have accordingly tweaked our FY19 and FY20 numbers. For the time being, we maintain our rating & PT. Once we have a better understanding of the stability of Q4 growth drivers, we will accordingly make changes.”
