ROCK HILL, South Carolina - August 7, 2018 - 3D Systems Corporation (NYSE: DDD) announced today its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.


For the second quarter of 2018, the company reported 11 percent revenue growth to $176.6 million compared to $159.5 million in the second quarter of the previous year. The company reported a GAAP loss of $0.08 per share in the second quarter of 2018 and 2017, and non-GAAP earnings of $0.06 per share in the second quarter of 2018 compared to non-GAAP earnings of $0.08 per share in the second quarter of 2017.


"We are pleased with our results for the second quarter, which were driven by strong revenue growth, including growth in both printer revenue and units as we continue to improve execution and are seeing the early returns on our investments in both innovation and go-to-market," commented Vyomesh Joshi (VJ) chief executive officer, 3D Systems.


The company reported 41 percent higher printer revenue on 37 percent higher printer unit sales, 26 percent growth in healthcare solutions, and growth in materials and on demand manufacturing.


The company reported GAAP gross profit margin of 48.8 percent for the second quarter of 2018 compared to 50.6 percent in the second quarter of the prior year. The impact of mix of sales and investment in services and on demand manufacturing offset cost improvements from ongoing supply chain cost reduction initiatives.


For the second quarter of 2018, GAAP operating expenses were $93.9 million compared to $87.5 million in the prior year period. SG&A expenses increased 13 percent to $71.2 million, which included continued investment in go-to-market, IT transformation and higher legal fees. R&D expenses decreased 7 percent from the second quarter of the prior year to $22.7 million as the company began to ship the previously announced new products. The company expects to continue to roll out new products as planned throughout 2018.


”We are very pleased with the progress we are seeing in the first half of 2018 from both our investments and the hard work by our employees,” commented John McMullen, executive vice president and chief financial officer. “We continue to make the investments we believe are critical for success while at the same time improving our cost structure over the long term.”


During the quarter, the company generated $10.7 million of cash in operations and ended the quarter with $119.3 million of unrestricted cash on hand.


“In addition to our performance in the second quarter, we are also very pleased to be partnering with Georg Fischer, a highly regarded leader in machining solutions, to create new integrated solutions and expand our global network and market opportunity. With our product rollouts in 2018, we believe our portfolio is second to none in regards to breadth and competitiveness, and we continue to be keenly focused on execution and operational efficiency to drive long-term growth and profitability,” concluded Joshi.
