First Quarter 2017 Business Highlights and Recent Developments

  • May 2017 – Sigma Labs unveiled PrintRite3D® INSPECT™ V.2.0 quality assurance software at RAPID + TCT 2017, North America's preeminent event for discovery, innovation, and networking in 3D manufacturing.
  • May 2017 – Sigma Labs completed funding a loan in the principal amount of $250,000 to Jaguar to provide working capital to Jaguar to, among other things, stand up a metallurgical laboratory and become ASM9100 certified for contracts related to AM of high-precision aerospace and defense components, in furtherance of our strategic alliance. Sigma will receive from Jaguar priority for use of certain machines and services of Jaguar.
  • April 2017 – Sigma Labs announced a new contract with Solar Turbines, Incorporated, a subsidiary of Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE:CAT), which will implement Sigma Labs’ In-Process Quality Assurance™ (IPQA®) technology for the production of gas turbine components using metal additive manufacturing (“AM”).
  • April 2017 – Sigma Labs released its OEM Developer's Kit for PrintRite3D® INSPECT™ quality assurance software version 2.0, an alpha version of which was placed with a European OEM partner to test, evaluate and incorporate into its AM 3D printers.
  • April 2017 – Sigma Labs Board of Directors appointed John Rice as Chairman of the Board of Directors. Sam Bell, Frank Garofalo and John Rice were appointed to serve as independent directors during the first quarter 2017.
  • March 2017 – Sigma Labs entered into a non-binding LOI with Morf3D to commence negotiations on a mutually acceptable M&A Agreement with respect to a proposed merger with Morf3D. It is anticipated that this transaction, if consummated, would help the Company achieve its goal of becoming a fully integrated business able to charge for materials selection, design and manufacturing and in-process quality assurance. It is further the goal that the combined entity would emerge as a fully integrated additive manufacturing company poised to serve the aerospace and defense industry, which is rapidly transitioning to 3D metal additive manufacturing and which could provide the kind of cost savings required to meet the $56 billion increase slated for the defense industry 2017 budget. The closing of the transaction is subject to definitive documentation and closing conditions, some of which are beyond the Company's control.
  • March 2017 – Sigma Labs entered into a long term non-exclusive, multi-year commercial OEM agreement with Additive Industries B.V. of The Netherlands, which Sigma believes could generate several million dollars over the next few years.
  • March 2017 – Sigma Labs completed funding a loan in the principal amount of $500,000 to Morf3D pursuant to a Secured Convertible Promissory Note dated March 27, 2017, to provide working capital to Morf3D to, among other things, lease an EOS M 400 system for Morf3D for Morf3D to expand production for contracts related to AM of high-precision aerospace and defense (“A&D”) components, in furtherance of Sigma Labs' strategic alliance and in contemplation of a possible acquisition of or merger with Morf3D.
  • March 2017 – Sigma Labs entered a commercial alliance with Jaguar Precision Machine, LLC to expand its suite of integrated, advanced manufacturing services. Sigma Labs will license its PrintRite3D® software to Jaguar. The addition of Jaguar allows Sigma Labs to provide end-to-end 3D advanced component manufacturing capabilities, including: computer aided design (CAD); engineering (CAE); manufacturing (CAM); and inspection (CAI).
  • March 2017 – Sigma Labs announced a contract with Aerojet Rocketdyne, a subsidiary of Aerojet Rocketdyne Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:AJRD), as a follow-on to last year’s award tied to a U.S. Air Force propulsion initiative for liquid-fueled rocket engine applications.
  • February 2017 – Sigma Labs signed a commercial alliance with Morf3D to bring enhanced solutions for AM to the A&D sector including the future manufacture of certain 3D printed parts. Sigma Labs will license its PrintRite3D® software to Morf3D.
  • February 2017 – Sigma Labs closed an underwritten public offering of 1,410,000 units, with each unit consisting of one share of common stock and one warrant to purchase one share of common stock with gross proceeds from the offering, including the exercise of the over-allotment option, of approximately $5.8 million, before deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and other offering expenses. Sigma Labs completed a 1-for-2 reverse stock split and uplisted to the NASDAQ Capital Market, as well.
  • January 2017 – Sigma Labs signed a commercial agreement with Pratt & Whitney, a unit of United Technologies Corp., for its PrintRite3D® software along with participation by Pratt & Whitney in Sigma Labs' Early Adopter Program.

Sigma Labs also appointed its new Board of Directors in the first quarter 2017 and appointed John Rice Chairman in April 2017. We are especially pleased to welcome our new directors who will serve to steward Sigma Labs in its future growth and market leadership,” Mr. Cola concluded.

First Quarter Ended March 31, 2017 Financial Results
During the three months ended March 31, 2017, total revenue was $150,203, as compared to $358,455 in revenue during the same period in 2016. The decrease in revenue was primarily due to the completion of the GEA America Makes Program in 2016, providing three months of revenue in 2016 but no revenue in 2017, and the completion of the DARPA Phase II project in 2016, providing three months of revenue in 2016 but no revenue in 2017.

Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2017 increased over the prior year and totaled $943,965 as compared to $470,667 for the same period in 2016. The increase in Net loss was primarily attributable to decreased revenue and higher expenses in the quarter.
