"Our record first quarter results reflect a continuation of the strong worldwide demand we are observing for our innovative products and services," said David Reis, chief executive officer of Stratasys. "Strong sales of our higher-margin products help drive a significant increase in non-GAAP gross margin, and a 40% increase in non-GAAP net income in the first quarter over last year. We are pleased with our strong start to 2013."
Q1 Business Highlights:
- Completed the second phase of Stratasys reseller cross-training ahead of schedule, with 112 channel partners now cross-trained, representing approximately 80% of the Company's potential worldwide revenue.
- Progressed according to plan in the sales, marketing and service team integration that resulted from the merger of Stratasys, Inc. and Objet Ltd.
- Launched a combined post-merger web and social media strategy that includes an integrated web site and social media channels.
- Initiated a merger-related re-branding campaign to increase the awareness and value proposition of Stratasys among "C" level business professionals.
- Launched the first 3D printer designed especially for smaller orthodontic labs and clinics - Objet30 OrthoDesk.
Following completion of the merger between Stratasys, Inc. and Objet Ltd., Stratasys benefits from a global network of more than 260 resellers and independent sales agents that sell Stratasys products and services worldwide. In addition, Stratasys is continuing to implement a comprehensive integration plan, which includes a cross-training program to enable its resellers and sales agents network to market and sell the combined product and service portfolio.
"Our plan to integrate the combined sales and marketing organization that resulted from our game-changing merger is ahead of schedule," continued Reis. "Channel partners representing the vast majority of our potential revenue have been cross-trained and are now selling the Company's combined product and service portfolio. New customer and cross-selling opportunities have begun to result from this initiative."
Stratasys confirmed the following financial guidance for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2013:
- Revenue guidance of $430 million to $445 million.
- Non-GAAP earnings guidance of $1.80 to $1.95 per diluted share.
- GAAP earnings guidance of a ($0.41) to ($0.16) per share loss.
Non-GAAP earnings guidance excludes $60.5 million of projected amortization of intangible assets; $20.5 million to $23.0 million of share-based compensation expense; and $7.2 million to $8.8 million in merger-related expenses. Stratasys also expects to record significant one-time integration expenses as a result of infrastructure alignment and brand unification in 2013.
Revenue growth is expected to be relatively stronger toward the end of the year as Stratasys progresses with its integration plan and realizes revenue synergies from selling the combined product portfolio.
Appropriate reconciliations between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures are provided in a table at the end of this press release. The table provides itemized detail of the non-GAAP financial measures.
"We are thrilled by our record results for the first quarter. Although merger-related integration will remain a focus in 2013, our leading priorities remain serving our customers and investing in future growth. We remain excited about the many opportunities we see developing for Stratasys and our innovative products," Reis concluded.
