Resignation of Jon Faiz Kayyem as Director

As previously disclosed, on April 5, 2011, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of GenMark Diagnostics, Inc. (the “Company”) appointed Hany Massarany as a member of the Board, effective May 1, 2011. As a result of Mr. Massarany’s appointment to the Board, a majority of the Board is no longer comprised of independent directors as defined under Nasdaq listing requirements. In order to maintain the Company’s compliance with Nasdaq independence requirements, Jon Faiz Kayyem (“Dr. Kayyem”) has resigned as a member of the Board, effective May 13, 2011. The Company is conducting a search for an additional Board member who will satisfy Nasdaq independence requirements and currently intends to reappoint Dr. Kayyem to the Board following appointment of a new independent director. Dr. Kayyem will continue in his role as Chief Scientific Officer of the Company.
