The Company needs additional time to complete its consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2015. This timing issue is exacerbated by the Company’s previously reported material weaknesses in controls over financial reporting that require the Company to take additional, manual steps to prepare its consolidated financial statements. The Company has filed a Form 12b-25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) requesting an automatic extension of up to fifteen days to file its 2015 Annual Report on Form 10-K. The Company expects to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K on Monday, March 21, 2016.

The Company confirmed its 2015 guidance:

  • Revenue expected to be approximately $40 million
  • Gross margin expected to be between 17% and 21%, excluding anticipated non-recurring costs estimated at $0.5 million to $1.0 million to complete facility integrations
  • SG&A expenses expected to be in a range of $21 million to $23 million, excluding approximately $0.5 million to $1.0 million of costs associated with ongoing implementation of the Company’s enterprise resource planning system
  • R&D expenses expected to be in a range of $6.5 million to $7.5 million
  • Cash and cash equivalents expected to be between $18 million and $22 million
  • Capital expenditures expected to be approximately $9 million

The Company also reconfirmed that it shipped eleven 3D printing machines to customers in the quarter which ended December 31, 2015, as previously announced. In total, the Company shipped 38 3D printing machines in 2015.
