-Increased demand across the board for products and services was led by a 76% unit sales growth of design and manufacturing 3D printers

-Higher placement of advanced 3D printers accelerated the growth rate of materials to 41%, delivering a record $40 million of revenue

ROCK HILL, S.C., April 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 3D Systems Corporation (NYSE:DDD) announced today that its first quarter revenue grew 45% from the prior year to $147.8 million on 28% overall organic growth, resulting in GAAP earnings of $0.05 per share and non-GAAP earnings of $0.15 per share for the first quarter.

"Our first quarter results reflect expanding demand across all of our revenue categories, led by strong 76% unit sales growth of design and manufacturing printers, and the ongoing placement of manufacturing printers that continued to increase the growth rate of materials," said Avi Reichental, 3DS' President and Chief Executive Officer.

First Quarter 2014 Revenue Highlights (compared to first quarter 2013):

  • 3D printers and other products revenue increased 53% to $60.8 million.
  • Print materials revenue grew 41% to $40.4 million.
  • Services revenue rose 38% to $46.6 million.
  • Healthcare revenue increased 53% to $21.7 million.
  • Consumer revenue expanded 150% to $9.7 million.

The company exited the quarter with $28.8 million of backlog. The March 2014 backlog included $17.9 million of printer orders, in part reflecting increased demand for the company's Direct Metal 3D printers, which continues to outstrip manufacturing capacity.

Gross profit increased 41% and gross profit margin compressed 130 basis points to 51.1% compared to the first quarter of 2013 as printers growth continued to outpace other revenue categories, which contributed to GAAP net income of $4.9 million, and non-GAAP net income of $15.1 million.

"Consistent with our expectations, expanding placement and utilization of our advanced design and manufacturing 3D printers has accelerated our materials' revenue growth-rate, and we are pleased that our 3D printers growth continues to surpass all other product categories, despite the fact that the resulting mix delayed anticipated expansion of our gross profit margin," continued Reichental.

During the first quarter, the company continued to increase R&D investments and expand sales and marketing activities in support of accelerated growth, new product development and marketplace expansion, while also increasing its manufacturing capacity to accommodate rising demand.

At the same time, the company executed on acquisitions and strategic partnerships to broaden and enhance its 3D printing ecosystem, extending the 3D printing digital thread across its entire portfolio from consumer to healthcare to industrial manufacturing.

Recent Business Highlights

  • In April, acquired Medical Modeling, a leading provider of FDA cleared, personalized surgical treatment planning and patient specific medical devices, to create the most comprehensive 3D printing medical devices capabilities
  • Signed a definitive agreement to acquire Robtec to create a strategic Latin American sales and service platform, multiplex the company's reach and establish local presence
  • Began R&D operations at acquired Wilsonville location, with a fully assembled team of 100 engineers, chemists and materials scientists using state of the art labs to support the accelerated development of next-generation products
  • Advanced progress on continuous, fab-grade 3D printer platform and materials in support of Google's Project Ara phone commercialization and other advanced manufacturing opportunities
  • Now powering the in-store 3D printing experience launched by Staples in New York and Los Angeles in April

Management continues to focus on accelerating the company's growth and expanding its market share, prioritizing initiatives and investments that are central to its plans to double revenue over the next couple of years. Management reiterates its 2014 guidance, expecting revenue to be in range of $680 million to $720 million and its GAAP earnings per share to be in the range of $0.44 to $0.56 and non-GAAP earnings per share to be in the range of $0.73 to $0.85. Additionally, management expects a greater portion of revenue and earnings to be generated during the second half of 2014, as the full impact of its new products and services materializes.

"We believe that 3D Printing is on the cusp of accelerated design and manufacturing adoption, and the ultimate measure of our success will be the value we create from our market share and scale gains over time. While our stepped up strategy and investments continue to pressure our quarterly earnings, we believe that our actions set the stage to substantially compress the time required to deliver greater value. Accordingly, we expect operating leverage to resume in the second half of 2015 and be fully restored the following year," concluded Reichental.
