ROSH-HA`AYIN, Israel, May 09, 2017 (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, 2017.

GAAP sales for the first quarter of 2017, which are net of the fair value of the warrants associated with revenues recognized from Amazon, were $27.1 million. Non-GAAP sales were $28.0 million, an increase of 28.4% over the prior-year’s non-GAAP sales of $21.8 million. Higher sales were attributable to growth in systems and services, partially offset by slower growth of ink and consumables vs. the prior year period which enjoyed unusually higher ink sales as a proportion of overall revenues.

GAAP operating loss in the quarter was $1.3 million, compared to GAAP operating loss in the prior year period of $0.2 million. Non-GAAP operating income was $1 million compared to $0.7 million in the prior year period. As a percentage of non-GAAP sales, non-GAAP operating profit increased to 3.7% from 3.1% in the prior year period.

Gabi Seligsohn, Kornit Digital’s Chief Executive Officer commented, "We are pleased with the non-GAAP revenue growth across all regions which topped 28% in total. Gross profit rose more than 22%, as expected, reflecting a more customary revenue mix in the start of the year. While our first quarter typically experiences seasonal softness, we were pleased to see a significant increase of sales in our EMEA and APAC regions and improved overall operating income."

Seligsohn continued, “We also had a very active marketing and operational quarter as we attended multiple trade shows spanning all of our regions during the period, and launched our upgrade offering for the Avalanche which generated an enthusiastic customer response given the significant reduction in cost per print achieved through this upgrade.”

The Company also announced that Ofer Sandelson, the Company’s Chief Operating Officer, who was responsible for manufacturing and supply chain management and was instrumental in the creation of Kornit's service organization, informed the Company of his intent to retire from his position, and that Mr. Sandelson would remain with the Company until a successor is found to assume his responsibilities.

Seligsohn added, “Ofer has been a tremendous asset to our team and helped to lead the buildout of our global infrastructure. We congratulate Ofer on his retirement and express our gratitude for his dedication and leadership to Kornit for the past four years.”

First Quarter Results of Operations
First quarter GAAP sales which are net of the fair value of the warrants associated with revenues recognized from Amazon were $27.1 million. On a non-GAAP basis, Kornit reported sales of $28.0 million, an increase of 28.4% compared with the prior-year level of $21.8 million. During the quarter the Company observed growth in all regions, with particularly strong sales in Asia and Europe.

GAAP first quarter gross profit was $11.9 million, compared with $10.5 million, in the prior-year. Non-GAAP gross profit in the first quarter was $13.0 million, or 46.4% of sales, compared with $10.6 million, or 48.7% of sales in the prior-year. In the comparable first quarter of 2016, the Company experienced unusually higher ink sales as a proportion of overall revenues which did not repeat, and led to lower gross margin against the comparable period.

GAAP total operating expenses in the first quarter were $13.2 million, compared to $10.6 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP operating expenses in the first quarter increased to $12.0 million, or 42.7% of sales, compared to $10.0 million, or 45.6% of sales in the prior year. The increase in operating expenses was consistent with the Company’s previously communicated plans to continue to invest in its global infrastructure buildout, but at a rate slower than revenue growth.

First quarter non-GAAP research and development expenses were $4.7 million, or 16.6% of sales, compared to $3.6 million, or 16.6% of sales in the prior-year period. First quarter GAAP research and development expenses were $4.8 million, compared to the prior-year period of $3.8 million.

First quarter non-GAAP selling and marketing expenses were $4.9 million, or 17.6% of sales, compared to $4.3 million, or 19.7% of sales in the prior-year period. First quarter GAAP selling and marketing expenses were $5.6 million, compared to the prior-year period of $4.5 million.

First quarter non-GAAP general and administrative expenses were $2.4 million, or 8.5% of sales, compared to $2.0 million, or 9.3% of sales in the prior-year period. First quarter GAAP general and administrative expenses were $2.8 million, compared to the prior-year period of $2.4 million.

Non-GAAP operating profit in the first quarter increased to $1 million, compared to $0.7 million in the prior year. As a percentage of sales, adjusted operating margin for the first quarter was 3.7% of sales, compared with 3.1% of sales in the prior year period. On a GAAP basis, first quarter operating loss was $1.3 million, compared to the prior year period of $0.2 million.

Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2017 was $0.6 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to $0.6 million in the prior year period. On a GAAP basis, the Company reported net loss of $1.7 million, or net loss of $0.05 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $0.2 million, in the first quarter of 2016.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow
At March 31, 2017, the Company had cash and marketable securities of $97.1 million, and no long-term debt. Cash flow from operations for the first quarter of 2017 was $2.5 million, attributable mostly to the decrease in accounts receivable.

Non-GAAP Discussion Disclosure
Non-GAAP financial measures consist of GAAP financial measures adjusted to exclude the impact of the fair value of warrants deducted from revenues, acquisition related expenses, share-based compensation expenses and amortization of acquired intangible assets. The purpose of such adjustments is to give an indication of our performance exclusive of non-cash charges and other items that are considered by management to be outside of our core operating results. These non-GAAP measures are among the primary factors management uses in planning for and forecasting future periods. Furthermore, the non-GAAP measures are regularly used internally to understand, manage and evaluate our business and make operating decisions, and we believe that they are useful to investors as a consistent and comparable measure of the ongoing performance of our business. However, our non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures, and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Additionally, these non-GAAP financial measures may differ materially from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.
