“Although the overall market environment remains challenging, we made significant progress in improving our operating efficiency during the first quarter, which is demonstrated by the favorable trends we observed in operating expenses and cash generation during the period,” said David Reis, chief executive officer of Stratasys. ”We believe the recent refinements to our operating structure will make us more productive and better position us for future growth.”
Recent Business Highlights:
- Announced the versatile Stratasys J750 3D printer featuring full-color and multi-material capabilities, allowing customers to streamline workflow processes and speed product delivery cycles by eliminating time-consuming painting and assembly processes that are normally required to create true-to-life prototypes.
- Continued operational improvement initiatives, including the planned transition of MakerBot desktop 3D printer production to Jabil, a leading global contract manufacturer.
- Launched the new Thingiverse Developer Program that expands the platform’s functionality by allowing developers to create apps in three different categories: print services, model customization and tools and utilities.
- Announced agreement between Stratasys Direct Manufacturing (SDM) and Somos, a leading stereolithography materials provider, through which both parties will seek to accelerate materials development and provide SDM customers with a wider range of advanced material options.
- Announced agreement with New York-based Jacobs Institute to create new Center of Excellence with the goal of advancing the use of 3D printing for a variety of medical applications.
“As we transform our business, we are focused on investing for the future, which includes developing new technologies and innovative new products. The recent launch of the Stratasys J750, which offers unmatched color and multi-material printing capabilities, is a great example of that commitment,” continued Reis. “We are also excited about additional products we plan to launch in 2016. These products will support our long-term strategy to develop a comprehensive solutions-based business that targets new applications across key vertical markets. While our near-term visibility remains low, we believe our strategy and improved operating structure will position us for future success in our dynamic industry.”
Stratasys provided the following information regarding the company’s projected revenue and net income for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2016:
- Revenue guidance of $700 to $730 million.
- Non-GAAP net income of $9 to $23 million, or $0.17 to $0.43 per diluted share.
- GAAP net loss of $84.0 to $67.0 million, or ($1.60) to ($1.28) per diluted share.
Stratasys provided the following additional information regarding the company’s potential performance and strategic plans for 2016:
- Gross margins to improve modestly to a range of 54% to 55%.
- Operating margins of 3% to 5%.
- Tax expense of $10 to $11 million, which includes the negative impact of the planned accounting treatment for tax valuation allowance.
- Capital expenditures are projected at $60 to $70 million, with approximately $45 million designated for completing the company’s new facility in Israel.
The company believes that it can achieve an improvement in its operating structure in 2016 that will translate into improved operating profit compared to the prior year. Given the expected ongoing negative impact on net income of the planned accounting treatment for valuation of deferred tax assets, the company believes operating profit growth will be the best measure of performance in 2016.
Non-GAAP earnings guidance excludes $59.0 million of projected amortization of intangible assets; $25.0 to $27.0 million of share-based compensation expense; $7.0 million in merger and acquisition related expense; $4.0 to $5.0 million in reorganization and other related costs; and includes $5.0 million in tax expenses related to non-GAAP adjustments.
Appropriate reconciliations between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures are provided in a table at the end of this press release. The table provides itemized detail of the non-GAAP financial measures.
