voxeljet AG Reports Financial Results for the Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2022

11/17/2022

voxeljet AG (NASDAQ: VJET) (the ‘Company’, ‘voxeljet’, or ‘we’), a 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, 2022.

Highlights - Third Quarter 2022 compared to the Third Quarter 2021

  • Total revenues increased 16.1% to kEUR 5,735 from kEUR 4,938
  • Gross profit margin decreased to 28.7% from 39.3%
  • Systems revenues increased 8.3% to kEUR 2,704 from kEUR 2,497
  • Services revenues increased 24.2% to kEUR 3,031 from kEUR 2,441
  • Reaffirm full year 2022 revenue guidance while revising certain other elements of our guidance

Dr. Ingo Ederer, Chief Executive Officer of voxeljet, commented: “We are very happy with our performance over the last months, as we continued to collect orders for 3D printers, made progress in key R&D projects and were extremely busy in our on-demand 3D printing segment. In August, we signed off on a sale and leaseback transaction of our headquarters in Germany, which closed on October 31, 2022. This cleans up our balance sheet as we use the proceeds of this transaction to repay most of our financial liabilities. With the demand for our products as high as ever, we are very excited about how we are positioned for the coming years.”

Three Months Ended September 30, 2022 Results

Revenues for the third quarter of 2022 increased by 16.1% to kEUR 5,735 compared to kEUR 4,938 for the third quarter of 2021.

Revenues from our Systems segment, which focuses on the development, production and sale of 3D printers, increased 8.3% to kEUR 2,704 for the third quarter of 2022 from kEUR 2,497 for last year’s third quarter. The Company sold one new and one used and refurbished 3D printer in the third quarter of 2022 compared to one used and refurbished 3D printer in last year’s third quarter. Revenue from the sale of 3D printers decreased due to the product mix. Systems revenues also include all Systems-related revenues from consumables, spare parts and maintenance. Those Systems-related revenues significantly increased in the third quarter year over year, reflecting the higher installed base of our 3D printers in the market. Systems revenues represented 47.1% of total revenues in the third quarter of 2022 compared to 50.6% in last year’s third quarter.

Revenues from our Services segment, which focuses on the printing of on-demand parts for our customers, increased 24.2% to kEUR 3,031 for the third quarter of 2022 from kEUR 2,441 in the comparative period 2021. This was due to significantly higher revenue contributions from our German service center as well as our subsidiary voxeljet America Inc. (‘voxeljet America’), reflecting an increased market demand in Europe as well as North America. Revenue contributions from our subsidiary voxeljet China Co. Ltd. (‘voxeljet China’) were almost flat.

Cost of sales were kEUR 4,089 for the third quarter of 2022 compared to kEUR 2,997 for the third quarter of 2021.

Gross profit and gross profit margin were kEUR 1,646 and 28.7%, respectively, for the third quarter of 2022 compared to kEUR 1,941 and 39.3% for the third quarter of 2021.

Gross profit for our Systems segment decreased to kEUR 651 in the third quarter of 2022 from kEUR 1,102 in the third quarter of 2021. Also gross profit margin for this segment decreased to 24.1% in the third quarter of 2022 compared to 44.1% in the third quarter of 2021. Gross profit and gross profit margin from the sale of 3D printers as well as from Systems-related revenues decreased. This decrease was mainly due to a less favorable product mix regarding our printer sales. In addition the change in the allowance for inventories following the Company’s inventory reserve policy increased quarter over quarter, amounting to kEUR 263 negative for the third quarter of 2022 compared to kEUR 109 negative in the last year’s same period.

Gross profit for our Services segment increased to kEUR 995 for the third quarter of 2022 compared to kEUR 839 for the third quarter of 2021. The main driver for the improvement in gross profit were the contributions from our German service center, partially offset by lower contributions from voxeljet America as well as voxeljet China. Gross profit margin for this segment slightly decreased to 32.8% in the third quarter of 2022 from 34.4% in the third quarter of 2021. This was due to decreased gross profit margin from our American service center and our Chinese service center, while the German operation contributed slightly higher gross profit margins.

Selling expenses were kEUR 2,015 for the third quarter of 2022 compared to kEUR 1,471 for the third quarter of 2021. This increase was partially related to higher distribution expenses, in line with the increase in revenues. Distribution expenses like shipping and packaging are a main driver of the selling expenses, and do not only depend on the amount of revenue, but also on quantities and types of products sold, as well as the destinations of where those goods are being delivered. Therefore, distribution expenses can vary from quarter to quarter. In addition, we recorded higher expenses related to sales events like costs for trade fairs as well as travel expenses in the third quarter of 2022, compared to last year’s same period, due to further easing of COVID-19 related restrictions in most regions of the world.

Administrative expenses were kEUR 1,566 for the third quarter of 2022 compared to kEUR 1,536 in the third quarter of 2021 and therefore almost unchanged. This was due to higher legal expenses relating to the sale and leaseback transaction which closed on October 31, 2022, which was offset by the lower legal advisor fees related to our stock market listing as well as our communication with financial institutions in connection with funding activities.

Research and development (‘R&D’) expenses increased to kEUR 1,673 for the third quarter of 2022 from kEUR 1,498 for the third quarter of 2021. The increase of kEUR 175 was mainly due to higher usage of external services. R&D expenses can vary from quarter to quarter and are usually driven by variations in project types and phases.

Other operating expenses in the third quarter of 2022 were kEUR 159 compared to kEUR 101 in the prior year period. This was mainly due to higher losses from foreign currency transactions of kEUR 100 for the third quarter of 2022 compared to kEUR 62 for the third quarter of 2021.

Other operating income was kEUR 1,227 for the third quarter of 2022 compared to kEUR 1,177 for the third quarter of 2021. The increase was mainly due to higher gains from foreign currency transactions, which increased to kEUR 763 for the third quarter of 2022, compared to kEUR 514 in the last year’s third quarter. In addition, other operating income for the third quarter of 2022 included kEUR 104 in reimbursement of research and development costs, compared to kEUR 0 in the comparative period. This was partially offset by lower income from government grants amounting to kEUR 158 for the third quarter of 2022, compared to kEUR 537 for last year’s same period.

The changes in foreign currency gains were primarily driven by the valuation of the intercompany loans granted by the parent company to our US subsidiary.

Operating loss was kEUR 2,540 for the third quarter of 2022 compared to an operating loss of kEUR 1,488 for the comparative period in 2021. This was mainly due to higher expenses within the function sales and marketing as well as research and development in combination with a decrease in gross profit. The net impact from other operating expenses and other operating income was almost flat for the third quarter of 2022, compared to last year’s same period.

Financial result was negative kEUR 6,167 for the third quarter of 2022, compared to a financial result of positive kEUR 688 in the comparative period in 2021. This was mainly related to higher finance expense due to the write-down of bifurcated embedded derivative financial instruments relating to the performance participation interest for tranche A and tranche B1 loan with EIB amounting to kEUR 4,664 for the third quarter of 2022. The write-down resulted from the early repayment of the Finance Contract with EIB in October 2022, expected already as of September 30, 2022. The early repayment included the full settlement of all tranches and interest for an amount of € 22.0 million.

This compares to a finance income of kEUR 1,280 related to the revaluation of derivative financial instruments in the last year’s same period.

Additionally, we recognized a finance expense of kEUR 907 related to the revision of estimated future cash flows from tranches A and B1 of the EIB loan that led to an adjustment of the carrying amounts of tranches A and B1.

Finance expense related to long term debt amounted to kEUR 1,475 for the third quarter of 2022, including the kEUR 907 adjustment of the carrying amounts of tranches A and B1 as described above. This compares to a finance expense related to long term debt of kEUR 538 for the comparative period in 2021.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2022 was kEUR 8,702 or EUR 1.23 per share, as compared to net loss of kEUR 800, or EUR 0.12 per share, in the third quarter of 2021.

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2022 Results

Revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 increased by 22.4% to kEUR 17,066 compared to kEUR 13,941 in the prior year period.

Systems revenues were kEUR 7,732 for the first nine months of 2022 compared to kEUR 7,258 for the same period last year. The Company sold four new and two used and refurbished 3D printers during the first nine months of 2022, compared to three new and two used and refurbished 3D printers in the prior year period. Systems revenues also include all Systems-related revenues from consumables, spare parts and maintenance. The increase in revenues from our Systems segment was related to a significant increase in Systems-related revenues due to higher market demand in our after-sales activities in connection with an increased installed base of our 3D printers. This was partially offset by a decrease in revenues from the sale of 3D printers, due to a less favorable product mix. Systems revenues represented 45.3% of total revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 compared to 52.1% for the same period in the prior year.

Services revenues were kEUR 9,334 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 compared to kEUR 6,683 for the same period last year. This significant increase of 39.7% was mainly due to higher revenue contributions from our German service center as well as our subsidiary voxeljet America. But also revenue contributions from our Chinese service center improved. Since the beginning of the fiscal year 2022, we have been seeing a strong market demand in our Services segment from almost all geographical regions.

Cost of sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 were kEUR 11,738, an increase of kEUR 2,189 compared to cost of sales of kEUR 9,549 for the same period in 2021.

Gross profit and gross profit margin for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 were kEUR 5,328 and 31.2%, respectively, compared to kEUR 4,392 and 31.5% in the prior year period.

Gross profit for our Systems segment decreased to kEUR 1,765 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 from kEUR 2,439 in the same period in 2021. Also gross profit margin for our Systems segment decreased, amounting to 22.8% for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 compared to 33.6% for the prior year period. This decrease in gross profit and gross profit margin was mainly related to a less favorable product mix from the sale of 3D printers. In addition gross profit and gross profit margin from Systems-related revenues decreased due to change in the allowance for inventories following the Company’s inventory reserve policy amounting to kEUR 597 negative for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, compared to kEUR 166 negative in the last year’s same period.

Gross profit for our Services segment significantly increased to kEUR 3,563 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 from kEUR 1,953 in the same period 2021. Also gross profit margin for this segment increased to 38.2% for the first nine months of 2022 from 29.2% in the same period in 2021. Both increases were mainly related to significantly higher gross profit as well as gross profit margin contributions from our German operation as well as our subsidiary voxeljet America, as a result of the improved utilization of those service centers. Also regarding our subsidiary voxeljet China gross profit and gross profit margin improved. As each service center was able to generate considerably higher revenues in the nine months ended September 30, 2022 compared to last year’s same period, the utilization was very cost efficient.

Selling expenses were kEUR 5,540 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 compared to kEUR 4,385 in the same period in 2021. The year over year increase is mainly due to higher distribution expenses primarily corresponding to the increase in revenues. Shipping and packaging expenses as a main driver of the selling expenses varies from quarter to quarter depending on quantity and types of products, as well as the destinations where those goods are being delivered.

Administrative expenses decreased by kEUR 257 to kEUR 4,748 for the first nine months of 2022 from kEUR 5,005 in the prior year’s period. The decrease was mainly related to slightly lower legal advisor fees related to our stock market listing as well as our communication with financial institutions in connection with funding activities.

R&D expenses slightly decreased to kEUR 4,767 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 from kEUR 4,772 for the same period in 2021. R&D expenses can vary from quarter to quarter and are usually driven by variations in project types and phases.

Other operating expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 were kEUR 573 compared to kEUR 486 in the prior year period. This increase was mainly due to higher impairment charges for trade receivables amounting to kEUR 215 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, compared to kEUR 74 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. This was partially offset by lower losses from foreign currency transactions amounting to kEUR 357 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 compared to kEUR 402 in the last year’s same period.

Other operating income was kEUR 4,685 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 compared to kEUR 2,203 in the prior year period. This increase was mainly due to the reclassification of the foreign currency translation reserve, which was previously recognized in other comprehensive income on consolidation of voxeljet UK accounts, to profit and loss accounts on deconsolidation amounting to kEUR 1,475, related to the finalization of the wind-up on February 17, 2022. In addition, we recorded higher gains from foreign exchange transactions amounting to kEUR 2,171 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 compared to kEUR 1,324 for the comparative period in 2021. Further, other operating income for the nine months ended September 2022 included kEUR 299 in reimbursement of research and development costs, compared to KEUR 0 in the comparative period. This was partially offset by lower income from government grants amounting to kEUR 293 for the nine months ended 2022, compared to kEUR 568 for last year’s same period.

The changes in foreign currency gains and losses were primarily driven by the valuation of the intercompany loans granted by the parent company to our US subsidiary.

Operating loss was kEUR 5,615 in the nine months ended September 30, 2022 compared to an operating loss of kEUR 8,053 in the comparative period in 2021. This was mainly due to a positive net impact from other operating expenses and other operating income amounting to kEUR 4,112 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 compared to a positive net impact amounting to kEUR 1,717 for the last year’s same period in combination with a significant improvement in gross profit. In addition, administration and R&D expenses decreased. This was partially offset by higher selling expenses.

Financial result was negative kEUR 5,723 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, compared to a financial result of negative kEUR 3,632 in the comparative period in 2021. This was mainly due to the write-down of bifurcated embedded derivative financial asset relating to the performance participation interest for tranche A, which resulted in finance expense amounting to kEUR 2,827. This was partially offset by the write-down of bifurcated embedded derivative financial liability for the performance participation interest for tranche B1, which resulted in finance income of kEUR 516 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022. The write-down resulted from the early repayment of the Finance Contract with EIB in October 2022, expected already as of September 30, 2022. The early repayment included the full settlement of all tranches and interest for an amount of € 22.0 million. This compares to a finance expense of kEUR 1,942 related to the revaluation of derivative financial instruments in the last year’s same period.

Additionally, we recognized a finance expense of kEUR 907 related to the revision of estimated future cash flows from tranches A and B1 of the EIB loan that led to an adjustment of the carrying amounts of tranches A and B1.

We further recorded finance expense related to the change in fair value of bond funds for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, amounting to kEUR 773, compared to kEUR 137 in the comparative period in 2021.

Finance expense related to long term debt amounted to kEUR 2,625 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, including the kEUR 907 adjustment of the carrying amounts of tranches A and B1 as described above. This compares to a finance expense related to long term debt of kEUR 1,598 for the comparative period in 2021.

Net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 was kEUR 11,254, or EUR1.59 per share, as compared to net loss of kEUR 11,633, or EUR 1.90 per share in the prior year period.

Business Outlook

Our revenue guidance for the fourth quarter of 2022 is expected to be in the range of kEUR 9,000 to kEUR 12,000.

We have revised certain elements of our guidance for the full year ending December 31, 2022:

- R&D expenses are projected to be in the range of kEUR 6,500 to kEUR 7,000 rather than kEUR 7,250 to kEUR 7,500 as previously projected, due to delays in the procurement of materials for certain projects.

- Capital expenditures are projected to be in the range of kEUR 2,500 to kEUR 3,000 rather than kEUR 4,500 to kEUR 4,750 as previously projected, and primarily includes ongoing investments in our global subsidiaries

We reaffirm the remainder of our guidance for the full year ending December 31, 2022:

- Full year revenue is expected to be in the range of kEUR 25,000 to kEUR 30,000

- Gross profit margin is expected to be above 32.5%

- Operating expenses for the full year are expected as follows: selling and administrative expenses are expected to be in the range of kEUR 13,250 to kEUR 13,750. Depreciation and amortization expense is expected to be between kEUR 3,000 and kEUR 3,250.

- Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2022 is expected to be neutral-to-positive. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss), as calculated under IFRS accounting principles before interest (income) expense, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and excluding other operating (income) expense resulting from foreign exchange gains or losses on the intercompany loans granted to the subsidiaries.

Our total backlog of 3D printer orders at September 30, 2022 was kEUR 13,683, which represents sixteen 3D printers. This compares to a backlog of kEUR 3,880 representing seven 3D printers, at December 31, 2021. As production and delivery of our printers is generally characterized by lead times ranging between three to nine months, the conversion rate of order backlog into revenue is dependent on the equipping process for the respective 3D printer, as well as the timing of customers’ requested deliveries.

At September 30, 2022, we had cash and cash equivalents of kEUR 10,237 and restricted cash of kEUR 2,051, which is included in current financial assets on our consolidated statements of financial position.

Non-IFRS Measure

Management regularly uses both IFRS and non-IFRS results and expectations internally to assess its overall performance of the business, making operating decisions, and forecasting and planning for future periods. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful financial measure to the Company’s investors as it helps investors better understand and evaluate the projections our management board provides. The Company’s calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled financial measures reported by other peer companies. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a substitute to financial measures prepared in accordance with IFRS.

The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental financial measure of its financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss), as calculated under IFRS accounting principles, interest (income) expense, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and excluding other (income) expense resulting from foreign exchange gains or losses on the intercompany loans granted to the subsidiaries. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA to be an important financial measure because it excludes the effects of fluctuating foreign exchange gains or losses on the intercompany loans granted to its subsidiaries. We are unable to reasonably estimate the potential full-year financial impact of foreign currency translation because of volatility in foreign exchange rates. Therefore, we are unable to provide a reconciliation to our forward-looking guidance for non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA without unreasonable effort as certain information necessary to calculate such measure on an IFRS basis is unavailable, dependent on future events outside of our control and cannot be predicted without unreasonable efforts by the Company.

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1. Preparation of financial statements

Our condensed consolidated interim financial statements include the accounts of voxeljet AG and its wholly-owned subsidiaries voxeljet America Inc. (‘voxeljet America’) and voxeljet India Pvt. Ltd. (‘voxeljet India’), as well as voxeljet China Co. Ltd. (‘voxeljet China’), which are collectively referred to herein as the ‘Group’ or the ‘Company’, which is listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market (‘NASDAQ’). The liquidation of voxeljet UK Ltd.

Initial Application of IFRS 17 and IFRS 9―Comparative Information (Amendment to IFRS 17)

The adoption of standards effective 01/2022 did not have a material impact on the interim financial statements as of and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022. The Company has not yet conclusively determined what impact the new standards, amendments or interpretations effective 01/2023 or later will have on its financial statements, but does not expect they will have a significant impact.

The condensed consolidated interim financial statements as of and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021 were authorized for issue by the Management Board on November 17, 2022.

Going concern

The financial statements have been prepared on the basis of going concern which contemplates continuity of normal business activities and the realization of assets and settlement of liabilities in the ordinary course of business.

voxeljet has recognized continuous net losses during the nine months ended September 30, 2022, full year 2021, 2020 and 2019 amounting to kEUR 11,254, kEUR 10,586, kEUR 15,481 and kEUR 13,978, respectively. Additionally, voxeljet had negative cash flows from operating activities in the nine months ended September 30, 2022, full year 2021, 2020 and 2019 of kEUR 7,399, kEUR 6,537, kEUR 6,598, kEUR 6,592, respectively, mainly due to continuous net losses.

During 2021, in January, February and July, the Company successfully completed three registered direct offerings and sales of a total of 2,190,711 ADSs, which provided voxeljet with total gross proceeds of approximately USD 32.0 million (€ 26.6 million) before deducting fees and expenses. Further, on October 13, 2022, the Company announced that it has successfully completed another registered direct offering and sale of 1,279,070 ordinary shares in the form of ADSs at a purchase price of USD 3.44 (EUR 3.60) per share. The gross proceeds of the offering amounted to approximately USD 4.4 million (EUR 4.6 million). Those capital increases improved the Company’s liquidity as well as equity ratio significantly.

Further, on August 11, 2022, management initiated a sale and leaseback of voxeljet AG’s properties located in Germany with the investor IntReal International Real Estate Kapitalverwaltungsgesellschaft mbH. Under this agreement, voxeljet was entitled to receive proceeds from the sale amounting to € 26.5 million and to enter into a long-term lease contract. Simultaneously, on August 11, 2022, voxeljet initiated the full settlement of the Finance Contract entered into with the European Investment Bank (the ‘EIB’), dated November 9, 2017 (the ‘Finance Contract’) including the repayment of tranche A and B1, including all interests for a fixed amount of € 22.0 million. In addition, the Company initiated the early settlement of certain loans related to the sold properties, which were granted by Sparkasse Schwaben-Bodensee, Germany (formerly Kreissparkasse Augsburg) with a settlement amount of approximately € 3.1 million.

The closing process of the transaction, which has been started through the initiation of the sale and leaseback at the notary on August 11, 2022, has been successfully finalized on October 31, 2022. The closing included the receipt of the proceeds from the investor, the settlements with EIB and Sparkasse Schwaben-Bodensee and the following release of land charges as well as the commencement of the long-term lease contract. These steps further improved voxeljet’s liquidity and moreover released the Company from all covenants in the Finance Contract, including a Minimum Cash/Cash Equivalents requirement (the “Minimum Cash Covenant”), which provides significantly greater financial flexibility for voxeljet.

In spite of this success, according to the Company’s current liquidity forecasts, the Group will require further funding in early 2023 to maintain its operations. Therefore, management is taking steps to raise additional funds which may include debt or equity financing, not without mentioning that there can be no assurance that voxeljet will be able to raise further funds on terms favorable to the Company, if at all. The steps already initiated by management include several meetings with potential new as well as existing investors and banks, which have taken place in late October 2022 in New York City. The overall feedback was positive and different parties indicated that there is serious interest for participations in further capital increases from both, new as well as existing investors.

The ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine raises further risks and uncertainties. The heightened use of trade restrictions and sanctions, including tariffs or prohibitions on technology transfers to achieve diplomatic ends could impact voxeljet’s ability to conduct its business as planned. A spill-over of the conflict to neighboring countries, the European Union or NATO members, could result into further adverse impacts on the Company’s business, such as a drop in market demand, price increases for raw materials and energy or delays in the global supply chain.

These events and conditions described above raise material uncertainties that may cast significant doubt upon voxeljet’s ability to continue as a going concern. Despite the ongoing losses, reduced cash flow and cash facilities as well as the financial obligations becoming due, management assumes that voxeljet will continue as a going concern. However, while management assumes of continuing as a going concern, the going concern is dependent upon management and the Company being successful in:

- achievement of budgeted sales, and

- successful fund raising in form of equity or debt

Those assumptions are included in the Company’s current liquidity forecasts, and management believes that the Company has the ability to meet its financial obligations for at least the next 12 months from the authorization for issuance of these condensed consolidated interim financial statements as of and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 by the Management Board on November 17, 2022 and therefore continues as a going concern.

Correction of error

In the third quarter of 2022, the Company corrected the other comprehensive income (loss) that may be reclassified subsequently to profit or loss, which was misstated in the first quarter of 2022, relating to reclassification of foreign currency translation reserve to profit and loss accounts on deconsolidation of voxeljet UK amounting to kEUR 1,475, related to the finalization of the wind-up on February 17, 2022.

As a result, the amount of other comprehensive loss that may be reclassified subsequently to profit or loss for the first quarter of 2022 and for the six months ended June 30, 2022 was increased. Accordingly, total comprehensive loss as of March 31, 2022 and June 30, 2022 amounts to kEUR 2,316, (thereof kEUR 2,251 attributable to the owners of the Company and kEUR 65 attributable to non-controlling interest) and kEUR 4,323 (thereof kEUR 4,282 attributable to the owners of the Company and kEUR 41 attributable to non-controlling interest), respectively.

2. Summary of significant accounting policies

The principal accounting policies applied in the preparation of these interim financial statements are set out in the Company’s financial statements as of December 31, 2021, which can be found in its Annual Report on Form 20-F that was filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on March 31, 2022. These policies have been applied to all financial periods presented.

3. Share based payment arrangements

On April 7, 2017, voxeljet AG established a share option plan that entitles key management personnel and senior employees of voxeljet AG and its subsidiaries to purchase shares of the parent company.

Total options available under the share option plan are 372,000. On April 7, 2017 279,000 options (75%, Tranche 1) were granted. On April 12, 2018 93,000 options (25%, Tranche 2) were granted.

The vesting conditions include a service condition (the options vest after a period of four years of continued service from the respective grant date) and a market condition (the options may only be exercised if the share price exceeds the exercise price over a period of 90 consecutive days by at least 20% in the period between the grant date and the respective exercise time frame) which must both be met.

The fair value of the employee share option plan has been measured for Tranches 1 and 2 using a Monte Carlo simulation. The market condition has been incorporated into the fair value at grant date.

The inputs used in the measurement of the fair value at grant date are as follows:

The respective expected volatility has been based on an evaluation of the historical volatility of the Company’s share price as of the grant date. As of September 30, 2022 353,400 options are exercisable and 353,400 options are outstanding. The weighted-average contractual life of the options at September 30, 2022 amounts to 4.8 years (September 30, 2021: 5.8 years).

The expenses recognized in the profit and loss statement in relation to the share-based payment arrangements amounted to kEUR 0 in the three months and kEUR 49 in the nine months ended September 30, 2022 (three months and nine months ended September 30, 2021: kEUR 44 and kEUR 261, respectively).

In March 2020, voxeljet registered a first rank land charge amounting to kEUR 10,000 on its land and facility located in Friedberg, Germany as collateral in favor of the EIB related to the loan under the Finance Contract. This pledge was removed within the closing process of sale and leaseback transaction by notary, which was initiated on August 11, 2022 and successfully closed on October 31, 2022. Upon closing of the sale and leaseback transaction, the land and buildings were transferred to the investor. For further information, see Note 14. below.

The valuation techniques used to determine the fair value of financial instruments include the use of quoted market prices or dealer quotes for similar instruments as well as discounted cash flow analysis.

The fair value of the Company’s investments in the bond funds was determined based on the quoted unit prices received by the fund management company.

The fair value of equity securities is determined by multiplying their share price and the number of shares held.

The fair values of the derivative financial instruments that are not traded in an active market are determined using valuation techniques which maximize the use of observable market data and rely as little as possible on entity-specific estimates. The fair values have been determined based on share prices and the relevant discount rates.

The fair value of long-term debt was determined using discounted cash flow models based on the relevant forward interest rate yield curves, considering the credit risk of voxeljet.

Due to their short maturity and the current low level of interest rates, the carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, trade receivables, trade payables, term deposit, credit lines and bank overdrafts approximate their fair values.

Due to the successful closing process of the sale and leaseback transaction on October 31, 2022, the expected future cash flows of tranches A and B1 related to the EIB loan after September 30, 2022, changed and the final settlement amount was determined. Consequently, the Company has written down the bifurcated embedded derivative financial instruments relating to the performance participation interest for tranche A and tranche B1 and adjusted the carrying amount of EIB loan tranches A and B1. The write-down resulted from the early repayment of the Finance Contract with EIB in October 2022, expected already as of September 30, 2022.

The write down of the bifurcated embedded derivative financial instruments and the adjustment of carrying amount of long-term debt as of September 30, 2022, resulted in a finance expense of kEUR 4,664 and kEUR 907, respectively in the third quarter of 2022.

The Group’s policy is to recognize transfers into and transfers out of fair value hierarchy levels as of the end of each quarter. As of September 30, 2022, there were no transfers of financial instruments measured at fair value between level 1, level 2 and level 3.

As of September 30, 2022, the Company was in compliance with all covenants related to the loan granted by the EIB.

11. Commitments, contingent assets and liabilities

In connection with the enforcement of voxeljet’s intellectual property rights, the acquisition of third-party intellectual property rights, or disputes related to the validity or alleged infringement of the Company’s or a third party’s intellectual property rights, including patent rights, voxeljet has been and may in the future be subject or party to claims, negotiations or complex, protracted litigation.

In March 2018, ExOne GmbH, a subsidiary of The ExOne Company, notified voxeljet of its intent not to pay its annual license fees under an existing intellectual property-related agreement and asserted its rights to claim damages pursuant to an alleged material breach of the agreement. At this time, the Company cannot reasonably estimate a contingency, if any, related to this matter. On November 12, 2021, The ExOne Company and its affiliates were acquired by DESKTOP METAL, INC.

voxeljet AG issued letters of support to voxeljet’s subsidiaries voxeljet China and voxeljet America to provide financial support to enable the subsidiaries to meet their obligation or liabilities as and when they fall due. The guarantee is irrecoverable for at least 12 months from the date of financial statements for the financial year ended December 31, 2021, are signed. Further, voxeljet AG issued a letter of support to voxeljet India on July 12, 2022, to provide financial support to enable the subsidiary to meet its obligation or liabilities as and when they fall due. The guarantee is irrecoverable for at least 12 months from date of issue of this letter.

Management assessed that it is unlikely that the subsidiaries would exercise these letters of support.

12. Settlement of SEC investigation

On July 1, 2022, the Company entered into a settlement agreement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the ‘SEC’) in full resolution of a cease-and-desist order issued by the SEC related to the Company’s reporting during two quarters in 2019 of our compliance with the Finance Contract and the state of our internal accounting controls. The Company self-reported and shared facts developed in our internal investigation, and fully cooperated with the SEC in connection with the settlement. Without admitting or denying the SEC’s allegations (other than with respect to the SEC’s jurisdiction and the subject matter of the proceedings), the Company agreed to the entry of the order pursuant to which (i) the Company and Mr. Rudolf Franz, our Chief Financial Officer, agreed to pay a penalty of $175,000 and $50,000, respectively, to the SEC; (ii) the Company will cease and desist from committing or causing any violations and any future violations of the reporting standards of Sections 13(a), 13(b)(2)(A), and 13(b)(2)(B) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Rules 12b-20 and 13a-16 thereunder; and (iii) the Company will undertake to complete, fully implement, and test our remediation plan.
