ROCK HILL, South Carolina - August 7, 2019 - 3D Systems Corporation (NYSE: DDD) announced today its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019.


For the second quarter of 2019, the company reported GAAP revenue of $157.3 million, compared to $176.6 million in the second quarter of the previous year. The company reported a GAAP loss of $0.21 per share in the second quarter of 2019 compared to a GAAP loss of $0.08 per share in the second quarter of 2018, and non-GAAP earnings of $0.00 per share in the second quarter of 2019 compared to $0.06 per share in the second quarter of 2018.

"We continue to see strength in customer demand for our core and new products and solutions, but as expected, year over year revenue growth was impacted by ordering patterns of a large enterprise customer, the delay in shipping Factory metals systems as we complete technical enhancements and weaker macro-economic conditions in some areas of our market," commented Vyomesh Joshi ("VJ"), president and chief executive officer, 3D Systems.

The company reported 46.4 percent higher printer unit sales, driven by sales of the Figure 4 platform. Printer revenue decreased 27.4 percent compared to the second quarter of the prior year driven by year over year timing of large enterprise customer orders and the softer macro industrial environment. Excluding the impact of the large enterprise customer's order patterns, healthcare solutions revenue increased 11.4 percent in the second quarter compared to the prior year. During the second quarter, materials revenue decreased 8.5 percent, on demand services decreased 12.4 percent and software decreased 0.5 percent compared to the second quarter of the prior year.

The company reported GAAP gross profit margin of 46.6 percent for the second quarter of 2019, a decrease of 220 basis points compared to the second quarter of 2018. Non-GAAP gross profit margin was 47.4 percent in the second quarter of 2019 compared to 48.9 percent in the second quarter of the prior year.

For the second quarter of 2019, GAAP operating expenses decreased 1.5 percent to $92.5 million compared to $93.9 million in the prior year period. GAAP SG&A expenses increased 0.7 percent to $71.7 million, including a $3.5 million dollar litigation settlement during the second quarter of 2019. GAAP R&D expenses decreased 8.4 percent from the second quarter of the prior year to $20.8 million. The company continues to execute its cost reduction plans, and as a result of these actions, non-GAAP operating expenses decreased 9.3 percent to $71.7 million compared to $79.0 million in the second quarter of 2018.

"I am pleased with the progress we are making on our cost structure, and we will continue to be laser focused on additional reduction opportunities in the second half of the year," continued Joshi.

The company generated $18.7 million of cash from operations during the quarter and had $150.4 million of unrestricted cash on hand at June 30, 2019. Cash generation during the second quarter was driven by improvements in working capital, including planned reductions of inventory.

"We remain confident in our broad portfolio of additive capabilities, workflow solutions and overall market opportunities; and we remain keenly focused on executing on our strategy, reducing costs and driving long-term profitable growth," concluded Joshi.
