voxeljet AG Reports Financial Results for the Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2014

11/13/2014

FRIEDBERG, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--voxeljet AG (NYSE:VJET) (the “Company”, or “voxeljet”), a leading provider of high-speed, large-format 3D printers and on-demand parts services to industrial and commercial customers, today announced consolidated financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2014 for its group, which consists of voxeljet AG and Voxeljet of America Inc. voxeljet AG holds 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of Voxeljet of America Inc.

Highlights – Third Quarter 2014

  • Revenues increased 6.8% to kEUR 3,756 from kEUR 3,517
  • Systems revenues increased 23.3% to kEUR 2,264 from kEUR 1,836
  • Services revenues decreased 11.2% to kEUR 1,492 from kEUR 1,681
  • An operating disruption of one printer in our German service center resulted in less available capacity
  • Shipped record box volumes for sand parts and generated record revenues for sales of plastic parts
  • Revised full year 2014 revenue guidance to a range of between kEUR 15,000 and kEUR 16,000, from kEUR 18,000

Dr. Ingo Ederer, Chief Executive Officer of voxeljet, commented, “In Systems, we shipped four printers in the quarter but only received final customer acceptance, which is required for revenue recognition, on three of these printers. This is purely a timing issue. We expect to receive the final acceptance report for the fourth printer in the fourth quarter. Customer interest and quoting activity remains strong, and the outlook for printer sales is positive based on our backlog. We continue to make progress on our growth initiatives, however our results were adversely affected by the temporary operating disruption of one VX4000 printer in our German service center due to technical issues. This resulted in less available capacity during the quarter. This printer did not operate for most of the third quarter and returned to service in late September. We have been operating at normal capacity ever since. Even with our capacity reduced in the third quarter, we shipped record box volumes for sand parts, and generated record revenues for plastic parts. We received a record volume of orders for both on-demand sand and plastics parts, highlighting the growing acceptance of 3D printing for production. We believe this validates our strategic positioning within the industry.”

Dr. Ederer continued, “We are revising our revenue guidance for the year ending December 31, 2014 to a range of between kEUR 15,000 and kEUR 16,000, from the previous guidance in excess of kEUR 18,000. This reflects the operating disruption we experienced in Services in the third quarter, as well as the later-than-anticipated opening of our Canton, Michigan facility, which is now expected to start on-demand parts production in the first quarter of 2015. In addition, delays in the initial delivery of certain of our new 3D printer models, including the VX2000, for which we have received orders, will result in the sale of fewer printers in 2014 than we had previously anticipated. We now expect that these printers will be delivered in 2015. The guidance includes contribution from the acquisition of Propshop (Model Makers) Limited on October 1, 2014. This has been a transition year for voxeljet, as we are investing and positioning the business for the future. I am very pleased with our progress and the milestones we have achieved. Our long term outlook for revenue growth of approximately 50% annually is unchanged.”

Third Quarter 2014 Results

Revenues for the third quarter of 2014 increased by 6.8% to kEUR 3,756 compared to kEUR 3,517 in the third quarter of 2013.

Revenues from our Systems segment, which focuses on the development, production and sale of 3D printers, increased 23.3% to kEUR 2,264 in the third quarter of 2014 from kEUR 1,836 in last year’s third quarter. The Company delivered four printers (three new and one used) in the third quarter of 2014 but only received final customer acceptance, which is required for revenue recognition, on three of these printers (all of which were new). This compared to three new machines in last year’s third quarter. Revenue for the fourth printer delivered in the third quarter is expected to be recognized in the fourth quarter. Systems revenues also includes all revenues from consumables, spare parts and maintenance. Systems revenues represented 60.3% of total revenue in the third quarter of 2014 compared to 52.2% in last year’s third quarter.

Revenues from our Services segment, which focuses on the printing of on-demand parts for our customers, decreased 11.2%, to kEUR 1,492 in the third quarter of 2014 from kEUR 1,681 for the same quarter last year. The decrease was primarily attributable to the operating disruption of one VX4000 printer - our largest format printer - at our service center in Friedberg, Germany for most of the third quarter due to a technical issue, which resulted in less available capacity during the quarter. This printer returned to service in late September and we have since been operating at full capacity. Even with the reduced capacity, we still managed to ship record box volumes for sand parts in the third quarter and experienced record revenues for plastic parts.

Cost of sales was kEUR 2,358 for the third quarter of 2014 compared to kEUR 1,913 for the third quarter of 2013. Embedded in cost of sales was expenses of kEUR 62 related to our Long Term Cash Incentive Plan (“LTCIP”), which was initiated in October 2013.

Gross profit was kEUR 1,398 in the third quarter of 2014 compared to kEUR 1,604 in the third quarter of 2013. The gross profit margin decreased to 37.2% in the third quarter of 2014 from 45.6% in the third quarter of 2013.

Gross profit for our Systems segment increased to kEUR 803 in the third quarter of 2014 from kEUR 712 in the third quarter of 2013. The gross profit margin for this segment decreased to 35.5% in the third quarter of 2014 compared to 38.8% in the third quarter of 2013. This was mainly due to increased headcount costs as we pursue our growth strategy. In the third quarter of 2014, cost of sales in the Systems segment related to the LTCIP was kEUR 35.

Gross profit for our Services segment decreased to kEUR 595 in the third quarter of 2014 from kEUR 892 in the third quarter of 2013. The gross profit margin for this segment decreased to 39.9% in the third quarter of 2014 from 53.1% in the third quarter of 2013. The decrease in gross margin was primarily related to the temporary operating disruption of one VX4000 printer during the quarter, as well as higher overhead costs resulting from increased headcount to pursue our growth strategy. Product mix in the third quarter of 2014 was also less favorable to the same period in 2013. As sand printers accounted for a greater percentage of our installed capacity for the first time in the third quarter, we believe that the trend in quarterly product mix comparisons is likely to continue for approximately the next year. In the third quarter of 2014, cost of sales in the Services segment related to the LTCIP was kEUR 27.

Selling expenses were kEUR 1,090 for the third quarter of 2014 compared to kEUR 507 in the third quarter of 2013. This increase of kEUR 583 resulted from expanded sales efforts as we increased headcount and attended more trade shows and fairs compared to the prior year period.

Administrative expenses were kEUR 1,077 for the third quarter of 2014 compared to kEUR 149 in the third quarter of 2013. This increase of kEUR 928 was primarily due to increased headcount related to the pursuit of our growth strategy and costs associated with being a publicly-traded company.

Research and development (“R&D”) expenses increased to kEUR 1,032 in the third quarter of 2014 from kEUR 447 in the prior year period, as we continued to invest heavily in R&D with a number of active projects in various stages of development.

Our operating expenses for the third quarter of 2014 were affected by the LTCIP. Selling, administrative and R&D expenses related to the LTCIP were kEUR 39, kEUR 20 and kEUR 53, respectively.

Other operating expenses in the third quarter of 2014 were kEUR 18 compared to kEUR 308 in the prior year period. The other operating expenses in the third quarter of 2013 consisted primarily of costs for internal scoping and planning and external consulting services related to our initial public offering, which was successfully completed in October 2013.

Other operating income was kEUR 155 for the third quarter of 2014 compared to kEUR 207 in the third quarter of 2013.

Operating loss was kEUR 1,664 in the third quarter of 2014, compared to an operating profit of kEUR 400 in the prior year period. Our operating loss in the third quarter of 2014 was the result of an increase in our operating expenses which was caused by increased headcount related to the pursuit of our growth strategy and costs related to being a publicly-traded company, including compensation expenses related to the LTCIP of kEUR 174.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2014 was kEUR 1,518, or EUR 0.41 per share, as compared to net income of kEUR 211, or EUR 0.11 per share, in the third quarter of 2013.

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014 Results

Revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 increased by 15.4% to kEUR 9,225 compared to kEUR 7,995 in the prior year period.

Systems revenues were kEUR 4,810 for the first nine months of 2014 compared to kEUR 3,885 in last year’s period. The Company sold seven new 3D printers in the first nine months of 2014 compared to six 3D printers (five new and one used) in the prior year period. Systems revenues represented 52.1% of total revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 compared to 48.6% for the same period a year ago. Services revenues were kEUR 4,415 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 compared to kEUR 4,110 for the same period last year.

Cost of sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was kEUR 5,888, an increase of kEUR 1,011, or 20.7%, over cost of sales of kEUR 4,877 for the same period in 2013. For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the cost of sales related to the LTCIP was kEUR 174.

Gross profit and gross margin for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 were kEUR 3,337 and 36.2%, respectively, compared to kEUR 3,118 and 39.0% in the prior year period.

Gross profit for our Systems segment increased to kEUR 1,494 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 from kEUR 1,320 in the same period of 2013. The gross profit margin for this segment decreased to 31.1% compared to 34.0% for the prior period primarily due to increased headcount costs as we pursue our growth strategy. In the first nine months of 2014, cost of sales related to the LTCIP was kEUR 99.

Gross profit for our Services segment increased to kEUR 1,843 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 from kEUR 1,798 in the same period of 2013. The gross profit margin for this segment decreased to 41.7% from 43.7%. In the first nine months of 2014, cost of sales related to the LTCIP was kEUR 75.

Selling expenses were kEUR 2,628 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 compared to kEUR 1,337 in the same period in 2013, an increase of kEUR 1,291. Administrative expenses increased by kEUR 2,017, to kEUR 2,643 for the first nine months of 2014 from kEUR 626 in the prior year period. The increases in selling and administrative expenses were in line with our efforts to grow our business. R&D expenses increased to kEUR 2,711 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 from kEUR 1,368 in the same period in 2013, an increase of kEUR 1,343, or 98.2%. The increase in R&D expenses in the first nine months of 2014 reflects our emphasis on developing new 3D printing technology and improving our existing 3D printing technology.

Our operating expenses for the nine month months ended September 30, 2014 were affected by the LTCIP. Selling, administrative and R&D expenses related to the LTCIP were kEUR 109, kEUR 55 and kEUR 148, respectively.

Other operating expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 were kEUR 104 compared to kEUR 478 in the prior year period.

Other operating income was kEUR 1,103 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 compared to kEUR 737 in the prior year period. The increase was mainly due to the recognition of kEUR 401 of deferred income as a result of the early termination of three sale and leaseback transactions.

Net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was kEUR 3,634, or EUR 1.04 per share, as compared to a net loss of kEUR 167, or EUR 0.08 per share, in the prior year period.

Business Outlook

We are revising our revenue guidance for the year ending December 31, 2014 to a range of between kEUR 15,000 and kEUR 16,000, from our previous guidance in excess of kEUR 18,000. This reflects the operating disruption of one VX4000 printer in our German service center in the third quarter, as well as the later-than-anticipated opening of our Canton, Michigan facility, which is now expected to start producing on-demand parts in the first quarter of 2015. We will also ship certain of our newer 3D printer models later than we had previously anticipated. The guidance includes contribution from the acquisition of Propshop (Model Makers) Limited on October 1, 2014. Our long term outlook for revenue growth of approximately 50% annually is unchanged

Our total backlog of 3D printer orders at September 30, 2014 was kEUR 4,144, which represents nine 3D printers. This compares to backlog of kEUR 2,300, representing four 3D printers, at December 31, 2013. As production and delivery of our printers is generally not characterized by long lead times, backlog is more dependent on the timing of customers’ requested deliveries.

At September 30, 2014, we had cash and equivalents of kEUR 10,217 and held kEUR 44,997 of investments in three bond funds which are included in current financial assets on our consolidated statement of financial position.

voxeljet AG Acquires Propshop (Model Makers) Limited

On October 1, 2014, we completed the acquisition of all outstanding shares of Propshop (Model Makers) Limited (“Propshop”). Propshop became voxeljet UK, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, and continues to support the film and entertainment industry, as well as the broad, growing consumer market for on-demand 3D printing services. Propshop’s operating results will be included in voxeljet’s Services segment from the date of the acquisition.

Long Term Cash Incentive Plan (LTCIP)

On October 2, 2013, we announced that we would be implementing, effective on January 1, 2013, a long-term cash incentive plan (the “LTCIP”) for senior management and other key personnel. An initial grant of the awards under the LTCIP was made to participants on October 2, 2013. Personnel expenses incurred in the first nine months of 2014 related to the LTCIP amounted to kEUR 640. The first tranche of payments under the LTCIP was settled in May 2014.

Incorporation of Voxeljet of America Inc.

On February 5, 2014, we incorporated our subsidiary, Voxeljet of America Inc., in Delaware. Voxeljet of America Inc. is headquartered in our new facility near Detroit, Michigan and conducts our North American operations. voxeljet AG holds 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of Voxeljet of America Inc. We expect that our U.S. service center, which contains approximately 50,000 square feet will commence printing parts in first quarter of 2015.
