STRATASYS RELEASES THIRD QUARTER 2019 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Third Quarter Revenue of $157.5 million

Third Quarter GAAP net loss of $6.9 million, or ($0.13) per diluted share, and non-GAAP net income of $6.3 million, or $0.12 per diluted share

Minneapolis & Rehovot, Israel, November 13, 2019 — Stratasys Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS) announced financial results for the third quarter of 2019.

Q3 2019 Financial Results Summary:

Revenue for the third quarter of 2019 was $157.5 million, compared to $162.0 million for the same period last year.

GAAP gross margin was 49.2% for the quarter, compared to 48.7% for the same period last year.
 
Non-GAAP gross margin was 52.4% for the quarter, compared to 52.1% for the same period last year.
 
GAAP operating loss for the quarter was $6.0 million, compared to an operating income of $3.4 million for the same period last year.
 
Non-GAAP operating income for the quarter was $8.1 million, compared to non-GAAP operating income of $8.2 million for the same period last year.
 
GAAP net loss for the quarter was $6.9 million, or ($0.13) per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $0.7 million, or ($0.01) per diluted share, for the same period last year.
 
Non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $6.3 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared to net income of $5.7 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, for the same period last year.
 
The Company used $8.6 million of cash from operations during the third quarter and ended the period with $347.1 million of cash and cash equivalents.


“Our results in the third quarter reflect a continuation of our track record of delivering earnings and profitability, despite challenging global economic conditions that have impacted customer investments in our target verticals in Europe and Asia. In the third quarter we continued to observe strong performance in our core professional and production-focused business in the Americas, our largest market, with specific strength in high-end FDM and PolyJet systems, our F123 Series, and our target verticals of automotive and aerospace,” said Elchanan (Elan) Jaglom, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Stratasys. “We continue to believe that when macro conditions improve we will see a return to growth in Europe and Asia, and believe we are well positioned with an impressive portfolio of new products as we finish 2019.”

Financial Guidance:

Stratasys today updated the following information regarding the Company’s guidance for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019:

Revenue guidance of $640 million to $655 million, compared to previous guidance of $670 million to $700 million.
 
GAAP net loss of $17 million to $3 million, or ($0.31) to ($0.05) per diluted share.
 
Non-GAAP net income of $30 million to $38 million, or $0.55 to $0.70 per diluted share.
 
Non-GAAP operating margins of 5.5% to 6.5%.
 
Capital expenditures are projected at $30 million to $45 million.

Given the expected ongoing negative impact of not recording a tax benefit on U.S. tax losses on the Company’s non-GAAP net income, the Company believes that the rate of growth in its non-GAAP operating income is the best measure of its performance.

Non-GAAP earnings guidance excludes $23 million to $24 million of projected amortization of intangible assets; $22 million to $24 million of share-based compensation expense; reorganization and other expenses of ($1 million) to $1 million. Non-GAAP guidance includes negative tax adjustments of $2 million to $3 million on the above non-GAAP items.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

The statements in this press release regarding Stratasys' strategy, and the statements regarding its projected future financial performance, including the financial guidance concerning its expected results for 2019, are forward-looking statements reflecting management's current expectations and beliefs. These forward-looking statements are based on current information that is, by its nature, subject to rapid and even abrupt change. Due to risks and uncertainties associated with Stratasys' business, actual results could differ materially from those projected or implied by these forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: the degree of market acceptance of our 3D printers, high-performance systems and consumables, and the software and technology included in those systems; potential declines in the demand for, or the prices of, our products and services, or volume of our sales, due to decreased demand either for them specifically or in the 3D printing market generally; potential shifts in our overall strategy, including as related to any reorganization activities and our capital expenditures; potential shifts in our product mix to lower-margin products or in our revenues mix towards our AM services business; the impact of competition and new technologies; potential further charges against earnings that we could be required to take due to impairment of additional goodwill or other intangible assets; potential failure to successfully consummate acquisitions or investments in new businesses, technologies, products or services; risks related to our relationships with our suppliers, resellers and independent sales agents, and our operations at our manufacturing sites; risks related to the international scope of our operations and regulatory compliance (including reporting, environmental, anti-corruption and other regulatory compliance) related to that scope of operations; risks related to the security of our information systems (including risks related to potential cyber-attacks); changes in the overall global economic environment or in political and economic conditions in the countries in which we operate; changes in our strategy; costs and potential liability relating to litigation and regulatory proceedings; and those additional factors referred to in Item 3.D “Key Information - Risk Factors”, Item 4, “Information on the Company”, Item 5, “Operating and Financial Review and Prospects,” and all other parts of our Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2018 (the “2018 Annual Report”), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 7th, 2019. Readers are urged to carefully review and consider the various disclosures made throughout our 2018 Annual Report and the Report of Foreign Private Issuer on Form 6-K that attaches Stratasys’ unaudited, condensed consolidated financial statements as of, and for the quarter and nine months ended, September 30, 2019, and its review of its results of operations and financial condition for that period, which has been furnished to the SEC on or about the date hereof, and our other reports filed with or furnished to the SEC, which are designed to advise interested parties of the risks and factors that may affect our business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects. Any guidance provided, and other forward-looking statements made, in this press release are made as of the date hereof, and Stratasys undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.


Use of non-GAAP financial measures

The non-GAAP data included herein, which excludes certain items as described below, are non-GAAP financial measures. Our management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful information for investors and shareholders of our Company in gauging our results of operations (x) on an ongoing basis after excluding mergers, acquisitions and divestments related expense or gains and reorganization-related charges or gains, and (y) excluding non-cash items such as stock-based compensation expenses, acquired intangible assets amortization, including intangible assets amortization related to equity method investments, impairment of long-lived assets, and the corresponding tax effect of those items. These non-GAAP adjustments either do not reflect actual cash outlays that impact our liquidity and our financial condition or have a non-recurring impact on the statement of operations, as assessed by management. These non-GAAP financial measures are presented to permit investors to more fully understand how management assesses our performance for internal planning and forecasting purposes. The limitations of using these non-GAAP financial measures as performance measures are that they provide a view of our results of operations without including all items indicated above during a period, which may not provide a comparable view of our performance to other companies in our industry. Investors and other readers should consider non-GAAP measures only as supplements to, not as substitutes for or as superior measures to, the measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliation between results on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis is provided in a table below.

SSYS Q3 2019 Earnings Script

SLIDE 1 & 2: TITLE SLIDES

SPEAKER: Operator

Good day, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to today’s conference call to discuss Stratasys’ third quarter 2019 financial results.

My name is [INSERT], and I’m your operator for today’s call. [INSERT RELEVANT INSTRUCTIONS].

And now, I’d like to hand the call over to Yonah Lloyd, Vice President of Investor Relations for Stratasys. Mr. Lloyd, please go ahead.

SLIDE 3 & 4: FLS & NON-GAAP DISCLOSURE

SPEAKER: Yonah Lloyd

Good morning, everyone, and thank you for joining us to discuss our 2019 third quarter financial results. On the call with us today are Elan Jaglom, Interim CEO, and Lilach Payorski, CFO.

I remind you that access to today's call, including the prepared slide presentation, is available online at the web address provided in our press release.

In addition, a replay of today's call, including access to the slide presentation, will also be available, and can be accessed through the investor relations section of our website.

Please note that some of the information you will hear during our discussion today will consist of forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, those regarding our expectations as to our future revenue, gross margin, operating expenses, taxes and other future financial performance, and our expectations for our business outlook. All statements that speak to future performance, events, expectations or results are forward-looking statements. Actual results or trends could differ materially from our forecast. For risks that could cause actual results to be materially different from those set forth in forward-looking statements, please refer to the risk factors discussed in Stratasys' annual report on Form 20-F for the 2018 year, as well as our report on Form 6-K and the related press release concerning our earnings for the third quarter of 2019, the latter two of which we are furnishing to the SEC today.

As in previous quarters, today's call will include GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measures should be read in combination with our GAAP metrics to evaluate our performance. Certain non-GAAP to GAAP reconciliations are provided in the table contained in our slide presentation and in today’s press release.

Now I would like to turn the call over to our Interim CEO, Elan Jaglom. Elan?

SLIDE 5: OPENING SUMMARY

SPEAKER: Elan Jaglom

Good morning everyone and thank you for joining today’s call.

Our results in the third quarter reflect a continuation of our track record of delivering earnings and profitability despite challenging global economic conditions that have impacted capital investments and general spending in the automotive and industrial machinery segments in Europe and Asia.

In the third quarter we continued to observe strong performance in the core professional and production areas of our Americas business, our largest market, with specific strength in high-end FDM and PolyJet systems, our F123 Series, and our target verticals of automotive and aerospace.

Despite the pause in customer investments we are experiencing in Europe and Asia, we continue to see high levels of customer engagement and are encouraged by the interest in deploying our solutions there.

As we have seen in the Americas region, major OEMs in our target verticals of Aerospace and Automotive are adopting our solutions at an increasing rate, and we expect customers in Europe and Asia to do the same once economic conditions improve.


We are encouraged by the initial interest in the multiple new product announcements we recently made, including two new advanced PolyJet systems, new manufacturing-focused FDM materials, and an addition to the MakerBot Method line of performance 3D printers.

Additionally, we recently announced plans to increase our ownership stake in Xaar 3D, our JV with Xaar plc, to develop additive manufacturing solutions based on High Speed Sintering technology that will target low-to-medium volume end-use part production for industrial manufacturing, with an option to fully acquire Xaar 3D.

We expect to make additional significant product announcements in 2020, and continue to believe that our new, expanding portfolio will broaden our addressable markets.

I will return later in the call to provide an update on our search for a new CEO, but first I will turn the call over to our CFO, Lilach Payorski, who will review the details of our financial results.

SLIDE 6 & 7: FINANCIAL RESULTS SUMMARY

SPEAKER: Lilach Payorski

Thank you, Elan, and good morning, everyone.

Total revenue in the third quarter was $157.5 million compared to $162.0 million for the same period last year. On a constant currency basis, total revenue declined 2%.

As Elan mentioned, we saw continued positive performance in the Americas, where we had specific strength in our high-end Fortus platform, including a large, multi-unit deployment to a leading automotive OEM, and we also saw strong sales of our workgroup-focused F123 Series and J750 full color, multi-material 3D printers.

GAAP operating loss for the third quarter was $6.0 million, compared to income of $3.4 million for the same period last year.


Non-GAAP operating income for the quarter was $8.1 million, compared to non-GAAP operating income of $8.2 million for the same period last year.

GAAP net loss for the quarter was $6.9 million, or ($0.13) per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $0.7 million, or ($0.01) per diluted share, for the same period last year.

Non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $6.3 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $5.7 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, for the same period last year.

SLIDE 8: REVENUE

Product revenue in the third quarter was $106.3 million, a decrease of 3% compared to the same period last year, or 2% on a constant currency basis.

The decline in product revenue was driven primarily by economic weakness in EMEA and APJ that impacted mainly systems sales in those regions.

Within product revenue, consumables revenue for the quarter increased by 3% compared to the same period last year, and increased 5% on a constant currency basis, while system revenue for the quarter decreased 9%, compared to the same period last year, with no change on a constant currency basis.

Services revenue in the third quarter was $51.1 million, a decrease of 2% compared to the same period last year, with no change on a constant currency basis.

Within services revenue, customer support revenue increased by 3% compared to the same period last year, and 4% on a constant currency basis.

SLIDE 9: GROSS MARGIN TRENDS

GAAP gross margin was 49.2% for the quarter, compared to 48.7% for the same period last year.

Non-GAAP gross margin was 52.4% for the quarter, compared to 52.1% for the same period last year.


SLIDE 10: OPERATING EXPENSES & OPERATING INCOME

GAAP operating expenses increased by 10% to $83.4 million for the third quarter, as compared to the same period last year.

Non-GAAP operating expenses decreased by 3% to $74.4 million for the third quarter as compared to the same period last year, driven by the timing of R&D investments related to new product introductions. We remain committed to our long-term strategy and we continue to invest in developing new products that we believe will expand our addressable markets.

SLIDE 11: BALANCE SHEET SUMMARY & CASH FLOW FROM OPERATIONS

The Company used $8.6 million of cash from operations during the third quarter, as compared to $5.0 million of cash generated in the third quarter last year, primarily due to proactive steps to increase inventory levels in order to improve fulfillment time and support product demand as well as to prepare for new product launches in 2020.

We ended the third quarter with $347.1 million in cash and cash equivalents, compared to $366.3 million at the end of the second quarter of 2019.

SLIDE 12: FINANCIAL SUMMARY

To recap:

1. We are pleased with our profitability and earnings in the third quarter, which reflect the positive impact of our continued commitment to expense management and operational efficiencies, despite the lower than expected revenues in some of our regions.
2. We had positive year-over-year growth in our core Americas systems, consumables, and services revenues, which were offset primarily by the impact of economic conditions in Europe and Asia.
3. Our balance sheet remains healthy and we are well positioned for future opportunities.

I will now turn the call back over to Elan.


SLIDE 13: UPDATE ON CEO SEARCH

Thank you, Lilach.

Our search for a new CEO is progressing, and I look forward to completing the process. We remain focused on being deliberate with our decision-making process and moving forward with a highly qualified leader that has the necessary public company experience and exceptional track record of delivering shareholder value.

In the interim, we are happy to have a strong, experienced oversight committee that continues to work closely with me and with our management team.

I would now like to turn the call over to our VP of Investor Relations, Yonah Lloyd, who will provide greater details on our 2019 financial guidance. Yonah?

SLIDE 14: REVENUE & EARNINGS GUIDANCE

SPEAKER: Yonah Lloyd

Thank you, Elan.

We are updating full year guidance for 2019 as follows:

1. Revenue guidance of $640 to $655 million, compared to previous guidance of $670 to $700 million.
2. Despite lowering our revenue guidance, we are maintaining our guidance for GAAP net loss of $17 to $3 million, or ($0.31) to ($0.05) per diluted share, with current expectations to be at the low end of the range.
3. We are also maintaining our Non-GAAP net income of $30 to $38 million, or $0.55 to $0.70 per diluted share, with current expectations to be at the low end of the range.
4. Non-GAAP operating margin of 5.5% to 6.5%.
5. Capital expenditures projected at $30 to $45 million.


Non-GAAP earnings guidance excludes $23 to $24 million of projected amortization of intangible assets; $22 to $24 million of share-based compensation expense; reorganization and other expenses of $1 to negative 1 million; and includes negative tax adjustments of $2 to $3 million on the above non-GAAP items.

The estimated non-GAAP tax rate for 2019 is impacted by the ongoing non-cash valuation allowance on deferred tax assets that we expect to record throughout the year on U.S. losses.

Given the expected ongoing negative impact of not recording a tax benefit on U.S. tax losses on our net income, as well as significant quarter to quarter variability in our non-GAAP tax rate, the Company believes non-GAAP operating income is the best measure of our performance.

Appropriate reconciliations between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures are provided in a table at the end of our press release and slide presentation, with itemized detail concerning the non-GAAP financial measures.

Operator, please open the call for questions.
