Summary Comments on Results

Commenting on the results, President and CEO, Dr. Jeffrey Graves said, “I’m pleased that, despite its many challenges, including significant supply-chain pressures, heightened inflation, the ongoing pandemic and geopolitical tensions arising from the Russian invasion of Ukraine, we experienced continued strong demand for our products and services throughout the first quarter. Because we believe that this demand, driven by new production applications of additive technology will be sustained, we are continuing to invest heavily in new product development, along with improvements in our core infrastructure that are necessary to support sustained double-digit organic growth in the years ahead.”

Dr. Graves continued, “With our organization now fully centered on our two business units, Healthcare and Industrial Solutions, we are focused on offering the strongest and most complete portfolio of additive manufacturing technologies, brought together with the most knowledgeable and creative engineering teams, to solve the most valuable production application needs of our customers. The effectiveness of this approach, which differentiates us in our industry, was demonstrated in the first quarter with revenue growth in our core businesses of 10% when adjusted for divestitures. This growth was led by our Industrial Solutions business, which delivered over 15% revenue growth year-over-year when adjusted for divestitures, reflecting the increased adoption of additive solutions in production environments across the world’s manufacturing community. Additionally, we also experienced solid revenue growth within our Healthcare segment when adjusted for divestitures, albeit at a slower pace due to supply chain disruptions and the impact of a new product introduction.”

Dr. Graves summarized, “As we now move fully into 2022, there are clear challenges that all companies are facing, the duration of which is unknown. However, I am very encouraged by the resiliency of demand that we continue to see for new production applications of additive manufacturing, driven in part by these same challenges, in combination with the success customers are experiencing as they increasingly move toward full implementation in production-scale environments. With our industry-leading breadth of technology solutions and application expertise, I believe we are well positioned to meet our customers' needs and create value for all of our stakeholders."  

Summary of First Quarter Results

Revenue for the first quarter of 2022 decreased 9.0% to $133.0 million, solely as a result of businesses divested during 2021. Compared to the fourth quarter of 2021, company revenue decreased 11.9% due to seasonality in the business. When excluding revenue from divestitures, the business grew 10% over the same period last year. The strong divestiture-adjusted revenue growth is primarily attributed to increased product and service demand across both business segments. Industrial revenue decreased 6.6% to $68.7 million compared to the same period last year, however, when adjusted for divestitures, Industrial revenue increased 15.7% year-over-year. Healthcare revenue decreased 11.3% year-over-year to $64.3 million, compared to the same period last year. Adjusted for divestitures, Healthcare revenue increased 4.6% year-over-year.

GAAP and Non-GAAP gross profit margin(1) in the first quarter of 2022 was 40.4% and 40.6%, respectively, compared to 44.0% for both in the same period last year. Gross profit margin decreased due to year over year product mix changes primarily as a result of divestitures and supply chain pressures.

Operating expenses increased 16.4% to $77.0 million in the first quarter of 2022, compared to the same period a year ago, primarily due to expenses from acquisitions and increased investments in product development and core infrastructure to drive future growth. On a non-GAAP basis, operating expenses(1) were $57.8 million, a 13.0% increase from the first quarter of the prior year. The higher non-GAAP operating expenses reflect spending in targeted areas to support future growth, including expenses from acquired companies, research and development, and bad debt expense due to heightened geopolitical activity.

Updating 2022 Outlook

3D Systems is narrowing its full-year 2022 guidance. The company now expects revenue to be within a range of $580 million and $625 million. The company expects non-GAAP gross margins to be between 40% to 43%. Given the company's planned investment profile, the company now expects non-GAAP operating expenses to be between $235 million and $250 million. This 2022 guidance assumes no significant changes in macroeconomic events that could negatively impact our business, such as COVID-19, geopolitical events, or other factors that could impact either demand or disrupt our supply chain.

Financial Liquidity

At March 31, 2022, the company had cash and short-term investments on hand of $745.6 million. Cash and short-term investments have increased $613.2 million since March 31, 2021, driven primarily by net proceeds from divestitures of $366.7 million, $446.5 million of proceeds from the issuance of convertible notes, and cash generated from operations of $4.6 million, partially offset by capital expenditures and payments for 2021 acquisitions. On April 1, 2022, we completed the acquisitions of Kumovis GmbH ("Kumovis") and Titan Additive LLC ("Titan") for a combined all cash purchase price of $80 million, before customary closing adjustments. The purchase price was funded with cash on hand.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements made in this release that are not statements of historical or current facts are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the company to be materially different from historical results or from any future results or projections expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. In many cases, forward looking statements can be identified by terms such as “believes,” “belief,” “expects,” “may,” “will,” “estimates,” “intends,” “anticipates” or “plans” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. Forward-looking statements are based upon management’s beliefs, assumptions and current expectations and may include comments as to the company’s beliefs and expectations as to future events and trends affecting its business and are necessarily subject to uncertainties, many of which are outside the control of the company. The factors described under the headings “Forward-Looking Statements” and “Risk Factors” in the company’s periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as well as other factors, could cause actual results to differ materially from those reflected or predicted in forward-looking statements. Although management believes that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, forward-looking statements are not, and should not be relied upon as a guarantee of future performance or results, nor will they necessarily prove to be accurate indications of the times at which such performance or results will be achieved. The forward-looking statements included are made only as the date of the statement. 3D Systems undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements made by management or on its behalf, whether as a result of future developments, subsequent events or circumstances or otherwise, except as required by law.

Presentation of Information in this Press Release

3D Systems reports its financial results in accordance with GAAP. Management also reviews and reports certain non-GAAP measures, including: non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP Gross profit, non-GAAP Gross profit margin, non-GAAP Operating expenses, non-GAAP Operating (loss)/income, non-GAAP Interest and other income/(expense), net, non-GAAP Net income (loss), non-GAAP Basic and Diluted Income (Loss) per Share, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA Margin. These non-GAAP measures exclude certain special items that management does not view as part of 3D Systems’ underlying results as they may be highly variable, may be unusual or infrequent, are difficult to predict and can distort underlying business trends and results. Management believes that the non-GAAP measures provide useful additional insight into underlying business trends and results and provide a more meaningful comparison of period-over-period results. Additionally, management uses the non-GAAP measures for planning, forecasting and evaluating business and financial performance, including allocating resources and evaluating results relative to employee compensation targets. 3D Systems’ non-GAAP measures are not calculated in accordance with or as required by GAAP and may not be calculated the same as similarly titled measures used by other companies. These non-GAAP measures should thus be considered as supplemental in nature and not considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.

To calculate the non-GAAP measures, 3D Systems excludes the impact of the following items:

  • amortization of intangible assets, a non-cash expense, as 3D Systems’ intangible assets were primarily acquired in connection with business combinations;
  • costs incurred in connection with acquisitions and divestitures, such as legal, consulting and advisory fees;
  • stock-based compensation expenses, a non-cash expense;
  • restructuring charges (cost optimization plans), impairment charges, including goodwill, divestiture gains or losses, and severance charges pertaining to senior level employees;
  • certain compensation expense related to the 2021 Volumetric acquisition; and
  • revenue from divestitures included in comparable periods necessary to calculate revenue growth excluding the impact of divestitures

Amortization of intangibles, acquisition and divestiture related costs are excluded from non-GAAP measures as the timing and magnitude of business combination transactions are not predictable, can vary significantly from period to period and the purchase price allocated to amortizable intangible assets and the related amortization period are unique to each acquisition. Amortization of intangible assets will recur in future periods until such intangible assets have been fully amortized. While intangible assets contribute to the Company’s revenue generation, the amortization of intangible assets does not directly relate to the sale of the Company’s products or services. Additionally, intangible asset amortization expense typically fluctuates based on the size and timing of the Company’s acquisition activity. Accordingly, the Company believes excluding the amortization of intangible assets enhances the Company’s and investors’ ability to compare the Company’s past financial performance with its current performance and to analyze underlying business performance and trends. Although stock-based compensation is a key incentive offered to certain of our employees, we continue to evaluate our business performance excluding stock-based compensation; therefore, it is excluded from non-GAAP measures. Stock-based compensation expenses will recur in future periods. Restructuring charges (cost optimization plans), impairment charges, including goodwill, divestiture gains or losses, and severance charges pertaining to senior level employees, are excluded from non-GAAP measures as the frequency and magnitude of these activities may vary widely from period to period. Additionally, impairment charges, including goodwill, are non-cash. Furthermore, 3D Systems excludes contingent consideration recorded as compensation expense related to the 2021 Volumetric acquisition from non-GAAP measures as management evaluates financial performance excluding this expense, which is viewed by management as similar to acquisition consideration.

The matters discussed above are tax effected, as applicable, in calculating non-GAAP net income and basic and diluted earnings per share.

Non-GAAP revenue as defined in this earnings release is as reported revenue less revenue from businesses divested in 2021.

Adjusted EBITDA, defined as net income, plus income tax (provision)/benefit, interest and other income/(expense), net, stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangibles, depreciation expense and other non-recurring and/or non-cash items all as described above, is used by management to evaluate performance and helps measure financial performance period-over-period.

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures is provided in the accompanying schedules.

3D Systems does not provide forward-looking guidance for certain measures on a GAAP basis. The company is unable to provide a quantitative reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP gross margins and non-GAAP operating expenses to the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP measures without unreasonable effort because certain items, including legal, acquisition expenses, stock-compensation expense, intangible amortization expense, restructuring expenses, and goodwill impairment, are difficult to predict and estimate. These items are inherently uncertain and depend on various factors, many of which are beyond the company’s control, and as such, any associated estimate and its impact on GAAP performance could vary materially.
