107 Days ago

ROCK HILL, S.C., Feb. 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 3D Systems Corporation (NYSE: DDD) announced today its financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2018.

For the fourth quarter of 2018, the company reported two percent revenue growth to $180.7 million compared to $177.3 million in the fourth quarter of the previous year with 17 percent higher printer revenue on 113 percent increase in printer unit sales, 16 percent growth in healthcare solutions and three percent growth in software. The company reported a GAAP loss of $0.04 per share in the fourth quarter of 2018, including a $4.9 million tax benefit related to the release of reserves resulting from the expiration of open tax periods, compared to a GAAP loss of $0.08 per share in the fourth quarter of 2017. The company reported non-GAAP earnings of $0.10 per share in the fourth quarter of 2018, including the tax benefit, compared to non-GAAP earnings of $0.05 per share in the fourth quarter of 2017.

For the full year 2018, revenue increased six percent to $687.7 million compared to $646.1 million in 2017, driven by 25 percent printer revenue growth on a 76 percent increase in printer unit sales, one percent growth in materials, five percent growth in software, two percent growth in on demand manufacturing and 20 percent growth in healthcare solutions. The company reported a GAAP loss of $0.41 per share for the full year 2018 compared to a loss of $0.59 per share in the prior year, and reported non-GAAP earnings of $0.15 per share for the full year 2018 compared to a non-GAAP loss of $0.02 per share in the prior year.

"We are pleased with our continued strong growth in printer revenue and units across platforms, in both plastics and metals, as well as continued growth in healthcare and software solutions. We are also pleased with the significant portfolio enhancements we made throughout 2018, our improved execution and the cost structure opportunities available to us as we enter 2019," commented Vyomesh Joshi (VJ) president and chief executive officer, 3D Systems.

The company reported GAAP gross profit margin of 45.7 percent during the fourth quarter compared to 48.2 percent in the fourth quarter of 2017. For the full year, gross profit margin remained flat compared to the prior year, with GAAP gross profit margin of 47.2 percent. Supply chain efficiencies and cost improvements were offset by the impact of sales mix, costs to launch and ramp new products and lower on demand manufacturing gross profit margins.

For the fourth quarter of 2018, GAAP and non-GAAP operating expenses decreased two percent compared to the prior year. GAAP operating expenses were $89.6 million compared to $91.2 million in the fourth quarter of the prior year. The company made significant investments in new product development and launches, IT infrastructure, go-to-market and operational improvements, particularly in the first half of the year, while cost reduction actions began to show results in the second half of 2018. For the full year, the company reported a two percent increase in GAAP operating expenses and a four percent increase in non-GAAP operating expenses compared to the prior year.

"With multiple 2018 product launches now behind us, we are shifting our investment focus to materials innovations and software growth opportunities,” commented John McMullen, executive vice president and chief financial officer. “We are very focused on reducing our cost structure and driving cash generation during 2019.”

The company generated $7.7 million of cash from operations in the fourth quarter and generated $4.8 million of cash from operations during fiscal year 2018. The company, ended the year with $110.0 million of unrestricted cash on hand, including $25 million of proceeds from the company's revolving credit facility.

“We have made significant progress in our turn around and transformation work for the company. Our improved operational foundation, execution and unmatched portfolio focused on production solutions, position the company very well to drive continued and increasingly profitable growth in 2019 and beyond,” concluded Joshi.
