ROSH-HA'AYIN, Israel, May 6, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kornit Digital Ltd. (Nasdaq:KRNT), a leading provider of digital printing solutions for the global printed textile industry, today reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015.

Non-GAAP net income in the first quarter of 2015 was $0.9 million, or $0.08 per diluted share on sales of $17.6 million. This compares with a non-GAAP net loss of $1.6 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, on sales of $13.3 million in the first quarter of 2014. On a GAAP basis, the company reported a net loss of $0.2 million, or a loss of $0.02 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.7 million, or a loss of $0.19 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2014. In the first quarter of 2015, GAAP results included costs related to the one time acquisition of assets from Polymeric Imaging Inc. of approximately $0.6 million.

Improved earnings versus the first quarter of the prior year were primarily attributable to a 32.8% increase in revenue to $17.6 million, and an improvement in reported gross margin to 45.1%, from 33.9% for the same period in the prior year. Higher revenues were widespread, with positive contributions from ink and consumables, higher system revenue, and an increase in demand for services. Margin improvement primarily resulted from higher ink sales, a mix shift to higher priced high throughput systems, and better absorption of costs associated with services as this business continues to grow.

Gabi Seligsohn, Kornit Digital's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are very pleased to report a strong first quarter as a public company, and expect to build momentum as we progress through the year. We believe our innovative and disruptive printing technology has become an enabler of the textile industry's trend towards mass customization and personalization. We will continue to drive value to our customers as we move our business strategy forward and set ourselves apart by continuously adding innovation to our product offering, closely collaborating with customers to increase system utilization while increasing our served addressable market as we expand our reach into the roll-to-roll market."

Business Update

The Company achieved several meaningful milestones during the quarter, including:

  • The successful initial public offering and listing on the NASDAQ stock exchange on April 2, 2015, which raised a total of $75.9 million, net. Mr. Seligsohn added, "We are proud and thankful to investors who participated in our initial public offering, and the confidence they placed in our team. This is a major milestone for Kornit."
  • The acquisition of assets from Polymeric Imaging Inc., located in Kansas City, Missouri. Polymeric Imaging held important IP that closely aligns with Kornit's portfolio, and add capabilities that further solidify Kornit's position as a leading company in the DTG market.
  • Other significant marketing events included Kornit's attendance of several exhibitions including ISS in Long Beach, Heimetextile in Germany and Premier Vision in Paris.

Results of Operations

In the first quarter of 2015, Kornit reported sales of $17.6 million, an increase of 32.8% compared with prior-year period level of $13.3 million. Higher sales were the result of contributions from all aspects of the business, including systems and services as well as ink and consumables.

Non-GAAP gross margin as a percentage of sales in the first quarter of 2015 was 45.7%, compared with 34.3% in the prior-year period. Gross margin improvement was driven by a higher mix of higher margin high-throughput systems, an increase in sales of higher margin ink and consumables, and incremental progress of services toward the break-even level. On a GAAP basis, gross margin was $7.9 million, or 45.1% of sales.

Non-GAAP operating expenses in the first quarter increased to $6.7 million, compared to $6.0 million in the prior year quarter. However, as a percent of sales, adjusted operating expenses for the first quarter were 37.9% of sales, a decrease from 45.5% of sales in the prior year and reflective of leverage on higher sales, coupled with slower than anticipated hiring of new staff. On a GAAP basis, operating expenses were $7.7 million, or 43.5% during the quarter.

Non-GAAP research and development as a percentage of sales was 15.5%, or $2.7 million, compared to 16.1%, or $2.1 million in the prior-year. On a GAAP basis, research and development expenses were $2.9 million, or 16.2% of sales during the quarter.

Non-GAAP net earnings for the first quarter of 2015 were $0.9 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, compared with a non-GAAP net loss of $1.6 million, or $0.18 in the prior year period.

On a GAAP basis, the Company reported a net loss of $0.2 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, including one time acquisition related expenses of $0.6 million for assets of Polymeric Imaging Inc. This compares to a net loss of $1.7 million, or $0.19 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2014.
