*

Estimated solely for purposes of calculating the filing fee pursuant to Rule 0-11(d) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). The Transaction Value was calculated by adding (i) the product of (A) 73,596,658 outstanding shares (“Shares”) of common stock of GenMark Diagnostics, Inc. (“GenMark”), and (B) $24.05 (the “Offer Price”); (ii) the product of (A) 693,995 Shares subject to issuance pursuant to outstanding GenMark stock options and (B) $12.71, which is the difference between the $24.05 per share tender offer price and $11.34, the average weighted exercise price of such options (all of which are “in-the-money”); (iii) the product of (A) outstanding restricted stock units in respect of 3,439,519 Shares subject to such restricted stock units (with any applicable performance conditions deemed to be achieved at maximum performance) and (B) the Offer Price; and (iv) the product of (A) 52,009 Shares which are estimated to be subject to outstanding purchase rights under the Company’s employee stock purchase price and (B) the Offer Price. The foregoing figures have been provided by GenMark to the offerors as of March 19, 2021, the most recent practicable date.

**

The amount of the filing fee is calculated in accordance with Rule 0-11 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Fee Rate Advisory #1 for Fiscal Year 2021, issued August 26, 2020, by multiplying the transaction valuation by 0.0001091.
