Share:
FRIEDBERG, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

voxeljet AG (NYSE: VJET) (the "Company", or "voxeljet"), a leading provider of high-speed, large-format 3D printers and on-demand parts services to industrial and commercial customers, today announced consolidated financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

Highlights — Second Quarter 2016

  • Total revenues increased 14.8% to kEUR 6,296 from kEUR 5,484
  • Gross margin was 36.6% compared to 33.5% in the prior year quarter
  • Systems revenues increased 97.4% to kEUR 3,815 from kEUR 1,933
  • Services revenues decreased 30.1% to kEUR 2,481 from kEUR 3,551
  • First inclusion into our consolidated accounts of our Chinese subsidiary, located in Suzhou, near Shanghai
  • Lowered full year 2016 revenue guidance to between kEUR 24,000 and kEUR 25,000

Dr. Ingo Ederer, Chief Executive Officer of voxeljet, commented, "We are in the middle of executing on our Vision 2020 and we are making good progress. Our subsidiaries perform well and we start to take advantage of our global reach, although the ramp up is delayed. Our new production facility and research center at our headquarters in Friedberg are beginning to take shape. Regarding general business, we continue to operate in a complex economic environment with lower than anticipated customer adoption rates. With cash and short-term financial assets of around kEUR 28,000 at the end of the quarter, we are well prepared to execute on our Vision 2020 and to deliver long-term value to our shareholders." Dr. Ederer continued, "Due to the current market demand, we change our full year 2016 guidance of revenues from between kEUR 28,000 and kEUR 30,000 to kEUR 24,000 and kEUR 25,000 for the Group."

Second Quarter 2016 Results

Revenues for the second quarter of 2016 increased by 14.8% to kEUR 6,296 compared to kEUR 5,484 in the second quarter of 2015.

Revenues from our Systems segment, which focuses on the development, production and sale of 3D printers, increased 97.4% to kEUR 3,815 in the second quarter of 2016 from kEUR 1,933 in last year's second quarter. The Company delivered six printers (three new and three used) in the second quarter of 2016, compared to three new printers delivered in last year's second quarter. Systems revenues also include all revenues from consumables, spare parts and maintenance. Systems revenues represented 60.6% of total revenues in the second quarter of 2016 compared to 35.2% in last year's second quarter.

Revenues from our Services segment, which focuses on the printing of on-demand parts for our customers, decreased 30.1%, to kEUR 2,481 in the second quarter of 2016 from kEUR 3,551 for the same quarter last year. This was mainly due to lower revenue contribution from our subsidiary voxeljet UK Ltd. ("voxeljet UK"), which was successfully restructured in late 2015. The revenue contribution of voxeljet UK was kEUR 244 compared to kEUR 1,360 in last year's second quarter. Moreover, revenue contribution from the German operation for the second quarter of 2016 was slightly lower than in the last year's same period, due to a lower number of orders. This was partially offset by a higher revenue contribution from our subsidiary voxeljet America Inc. ("voxeljet America").

Cost of sales was kEUR 3,993 for the second quarter of 2016 compared to kEUR 3,650 for the second quarter of 2015.

Gross profit was kEUR 2,303 in the second quarter of 2016 compared to kEUR 1,834 in the second quarter of 2015. This was due to higher gross profit contributions from our German entity from both Systems and Services segments. Additionally gross profit contribution from voxeljet America improved significantly, whereas voxeljet UK, provided negative gross profit contributions. The lower gross margin contribution from voxeljet UK is due to a lower utilization ratio. Gross profit margin increased to 36.6% in the second quarter of 2016 from 33.5% in the second quarter of 2015. A main driver of the increase of gross margin was the release of certain accruals regarding the third tranche of the Long Term Cash Incentive Plan ("LTCIP") as well as bonus, which improved gross margin by kEUR 311, whereas we recorded accruals for LTCIP and bonus of kEUR 147 in the last year's same period. The release of accruals for LTCIP and bonus was due to the expectation, that the achievement of the underlying targets is no longer probable, based on our current 2016 forecasts.

Gross profit for our Systems segment increased to kEUR 1,112 in the second quarter of 2016 from kEUR 632 in the second quarter of 2015. The gross profit margin for this segment decreased to 29.1% in the second quarter of 2016 compared to 32.7% in the second quarter of 2015. The decrease resulted mainly from three of the six 3D printers sold in the second quarter of 2016 being equipped with new processes. Products incorporating new processes typically contribute lower gross profit at the beginning of the product life cycle. In addition to that, two systems were sold to an educational institution. Those customers usually receive a higher discount compared to the list price. Furthermore, higher headcount costs related to our growth strategy led to lower gross profit. As of June 30, 2016, 75 people were employed in the Systems segment, compared to 49 as of June 30, 2015. This was partially offset by the release of accruals related to the LTCIP as well as bonus amounting to kEUR 183. In contrast to that, we recorded accruals for LTCIP and bonus of kEUR 92 in the last year's same period.

Gross profit for our Services segment decreased to kEUR 1,191 in the second quarter of 2016 from kEUR 1,202 in the second quarter of 2015. The gross profit margin for this segment increased to 48.0% in the second quarter of 2016 from 33.8% in the second quarter of 2015. This was mainly related to higher gross profit margin contributions from the German entity as well as from voxeljet America. This was partially offset by negative gross profit contributions from voxeljet UK due to a lower utilization ratio. Gross profit margin highly depends on the degree of capacity utilization. A ramp-up in Services revenues would lead to a stronger gross profit margin. Gross margin was also impacted by the release of accruals for the LTCIP as well as bonus amounting to kEUR 128, compared to an accrual of kEUR 55 in the last year's same period. As of June 30, 2016, 44 people were employed in the Services segment, compared to 35 as of June 30, 2015.

Selling expenses were kEUR 1,265 for the second quarter of 2016 compared to kEUR 1,743 in the second quarter of 2015. The decrease of kEUR 478 was a result of the release of accruals on LTCIP and bonus amounting to kEUR 132, whereas we recorded accruals for LTCIP and bonus of kEUR 92 in the last year's same period. In addition to that, the commissions to third-party sales agents decreased to kEUR 42 in the second quarter of 2016 compared to kEUR 294 in the second quarter of 2015. As of June 30, 2016, 40 people were employed in the sales function, compared to 35 as of June 30, 2015.

Administrative expenses were kEUR 1,106 for the second quarter of 2016 compared to kEUR 1,097 in the second quarter of 2015. This slight increase of kEUR 9 was a result of higher consulting fees, due to ongoing IT projects, partially offset by the release of accruals for the LTCIP and bonus of kEUR 114. In the last year's same period, we recorded accruals for LTCIP and bonus of kEUR 82. As of June 30, 2016, voxeljet employed 46 people performing administrative functions, and the number remained unchanged compared to June 30, 2015.

Research and development ("R&D") expenses decreased to kEUR 1,049 in the second quarter of 2016 from kEUR 1,417. The decrease of kEUR 368 was mainly due to the restructuring of voxeljet UK, which resulted in the cancellation of research and development activities in UK. Moreover, accruals regarding the LTCIP and bonus of kEUR 261 were released, whereas we recorded accruals for LTCIP and bonus of kEUR 137 in the comparative period last year. Headcount in this function decreased at the end of the second quarter of 2016 by five to 50 employees compared to 55 at the end of the second quarter of 2015.

Other operating expenses in the second quarter of 2016 were kEUR 818 compared to kEUR 62 in the prior year period. This was mainly due to foreign currency losses amounting to kEUR 474 (Q2 2015: kEUR 19).

Other operating income was kEUR 327 for the second quarter of 2016 compared to kEUR 390 in the second quarter of 2015. This was mainly due to foreign currency gains of kEUR 95 in the second quarter of 2016 compared to kEUR 46 in the comparative period.

The changes in foreign currency losses and gains were primarily driven by the valuation of the intercompany loans granted by the parent company to our UK and U.S. subsidiaries. The loans are denominated in GBP and USD, respectively. The financial impact primarily reflects the weakening of the GBP in the second quarter of 2016 following the Brexit vote, compared to gains in the comparative period.

Operating loss was kEUR 1,608 in the second quarter of 2016, compared to an operating loss of kEUR 2,095 in the prior year period. Our operating loss in the second quarter of 2016 was a result of lower gross profit contribution from the Systems segment as well as a negative net impact from foreign exchange valuation amounting to kEUR 379 compared to a positive net impact of kEUR 27 in last year's same period. This was partially offset by lower operating expenses incurred in R&D and sales and marketing. The operating loss was significantly impacted by the release of accruals regarding the LTCIP as well as bonus amounting to kEUR 818 in total, compared to accruals for LTCIP and bonus amounting to kEUR 459 in last year's same period.

Financial result was negative kEUR 95 in the second quarter of 2016, compared to a financial result of negative kEUR 41 in the prior year period. The increase was mainly related to the release of other comprehensive income to finance expense due to the selling of portions of the bond funds.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2016 was kEUR 1,705 or EUR 0.46 per share, as compared to net loss of kEUR 2,136, or EUR 0.57 per share, in the second quarter of 2015.

Based on a conversion rate of five American Depositary Shares ("ADSs") per ordinary share, net loss was EUR 0.09 per ADS for the six months ended June 30, 2016 compared to net loss of EUR 0.11 per ADS in the prior year period.

Six Months Ended June 30, 2016 Results

Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2016 increased by 0.8% to kEUR 11,166 compared to kEUR 11,073 in the prior year period.

Systems revenues were kEUR 6,598 for the first six months of 2016 compared to kEUR 4,750 in last year's period. The Company sold six new and three used and refurbished 3D printers during the first six months of 2016 compared to five new and two used 3D printers in the prior year period. Systems revenues represented 59.1% of total revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2016 compared to 42.9% for the same period a year ago.

Services revenues were kEUR 4,568 for the six months ended June 30, 2016 compared to kEUR 6,323 for the same period last year. This decrease was mainly due to the lower revenue contribution from our subsidiary voxeljet UK, which was restructured in late 2015 as well as lower year to date revenues from the German entity. After a weak first quarter of 2016 at the German operation, its revenues improved in the second quarter of this year.

Cost of sales for the six months ended June 30, 2016 was kEUR 7,532, an increase of kEUR 172, or 2%, over cost of sales of kEUR 7,360 for the same period in 2015.

Gross profit and gross margin for the six months ended June 30, 2016 were kEUR 3,634 and 32.5%, respectively, compared to kEUR 3,713 and 33.5% in the prior year period. A main impact on gross margin was the release of accruals regarding the LTCIP as well as bonus, which improved gross margin by kEUR 172, whereas we recorded accruals for LTCIP and bonus of kEUR 418 in the comparative period.

Gross profit for our Systems segment increased to kEUR 1,805 for the six months ended June 30, 2016 from kEUR 1,404 in the same period of 2015. The gross profit margin for this segment decreased to 27.4% compared to 29.6% for the prior period. The decrease resulted mainly from five of the nine 3D printers sold in the first half of 2016 being equipped with new processes and products. Incorporating new processes typically contribute lower gross profit at the beginning of the product life cycle. This was partially offset by the release of accruals for the LTCIP as well as bonus amounting to kEUR 93. In contrast to this, we recorded accruals of kEUR 252 in the last year's same period.

Gross profit for our Services segment decreased to kEUR 1,829 for the six months ended June 30, 2016 from kEUR 2,309 in the same period of 2015. The gross profit margin for this segment increased to 40.0% from 36.5% in the last year's same period. The increase in gross profit margin was primarily related to higher gross margin contributions from the German operation and voxeljet America. Gross margin also benefited from the release of accruals for the LTCIP as well as bonus amounting to kEUR 79. This compares to an accrual for LTCIP and bonus of kEUR 166 in the first half of 2015.

Selling expenses were kEUR 2,468 for the six months ended June 30, 2016 compared to kEUR 3,159 in the same period in 2015, a decrease of kEUR 691, or 21.9%. Administrative expenses decreased by kEUR 514 to kEUR 2,202 for the first six months of 2016 from kEUR 2,716 in the prior year period. The decrease in selling and administrative expenses were mainly driven by the restructuring of voxeljet UK last year as well as the release of accruals for the LTCIP and bonus of kEUR 87 and kEUR 63, respectively. In contrast to that, selling and administrative expenses during the six months ended June 30, 2015 included the accruals on LTCIP and bonus of kEUR 250 and kEUR 207, respectively. Selling expenses also decreased due to lower commissions to third-party sales agents, which declined to kEUR 84 in the first half of 2016 compared to kEUR 506 in the last year's same period. There were not yet significant impacts from the Chinese and Indian subsidiary to selling and administrative expenses.

R&D expenses decreased to kEUR 2,356 for the six months ended June 30, 2016 from kEUR 2,977 in the same period in 2015, a decrease of kEUR 621, or 20.9%. The decrease in R&D expenses in the first six months ended June 30, 2016 is due to the restructuring of voxeljet UK, which resulted in the cancellation of research and development activities in UK, but also from the release of accruals regarding the LTCIP and bonus of kEUR 156. In the last year's same period accruals for LTCIP and bonus was amounted to kEUR 395.

Other operating expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2016 were kEUR 1,947 compared to kEUR 268 in the prior year period. This was mainly due to higher losses from foreign currency transactions amounting to kEUR 1,233 compared to kEUR 119 in the prior year period.

Other operating income was kEUR 644 for the six months ended June 30, 2016 compared to kEUR 1,846 in the prior year period. The decrease was mainly due to lower gains from foreign exchange transactions amounting to kEUR 132 compared to kEUR 970 in the last year's same period and lower recognition of deferred income amounting to kEUR 148 compared to kEUR 377 in the last year's same period.

The changes in foreign currency losses and gains were primarily driven by the valuation of the intercompany loans granted by the parent company to our UK and U.S. subsidiaries. The loans are denominated in GBP and USD, respectively. The financial impact primarily reflects the weakening of the GBP in the second quarter of 2016 following the Brexit vote, compared to gains in the comparative period.

Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2016 was kEUR 4,819 or EUR 1.29 per share, as compared to net loss of kEUR 3,766, or EUR 1.01 per share, in the prior year period. This is based on a weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding of 3.720 million for the first six months ended June 30, 2016. Compared the last year's same period, the number of ordinary shares outstanding was unchanged. The net loss was significantly impacted by the release of accruals regarding the LTCIP as well as bonus amounting to kEUR 478 compared to an addition to LTCIP and bonus accruals of kEUR 1,270 in the first half year 2015.

Based on a conversion rate of five American Depositary Shares ("ADSs") per ordinary share, net loss was EUR 0.26 per ADS for the six months ended June 30, 2016 compared to net loss of EUR 0.20 per ADS in the prior year period.

Business Outlook

We decreased our full year 2016 guidance of revenues from between kEUR 28,000 and kEUR 30,000 to between kEUR 24,000 and kEUR 25,000 for the Group.

Our revenue guidance for the third quarter of 2016 is in the range of kEUR 4,500 to kEUR 5,500.

The primary drivers of the Company's revenues for the year ending December 31, 2016 are expected to be: (1) development of global Systems sales; (2) Services revenue contribution from our facility in Friedberg, Germany; (3) contribution from voxeljet America; (4) offset by a smaller revenue contribution from voxeljet UK after the restructuring in the fourth quarter of 2015; and (5) first contributions from our new subsidiaries in India and China.

Our total backlog of 3D printer orders as of June 30, 2016 was kEUR 4,209, which represents five 3D printers. This compares to a backlog of kEUR 5,613, representing nine 3D printers, as of December 31, 2015. As production and delivery of our printers generally varies and is characterized by lead times between in general three to nine months from order intake until delivery, the conversion rate of order backlog into revenue is dependent on the equipping process for the respective 3D printer as well as the timing of customers' requested deliveries. The decrease of order backlog is due to lower market demand, which we are currently facing.

As of June 30, 2016, we had cash and cash equivalents of kEUR 12,877 and held kEUR 14,619 of investments in two bond funds and one note receivable which are included in current financial assets on our consolidated statements of financial position.

In April 2016 the employee bonus regarding the year 2015 was fully paid.

The decrease of accruals for employee bonus and LTCIP is based on management's determination that the achievement of the underlying targets on both the third performance period of LTCIP and employee bonus plan is no longer probable, resulting in a release of kEUR 818 for the second quarter of 2016 and kEUR 478 for the six months ended June 30, 2016 to the consolidated statements of comprehensive loss.

7. Financial instruments

The fair value of a financial instrument is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.

The fair value hierarchy defines the following levels:

  • Level 1: Quoted prices of the respective financial asset or financial liability in active markets
  • Level 2: Other directly observable input parameters which contribute to establishing the fair value based on a valuation model
  • Level 3: Input parameters not based on observable market data

Under IAS 39 there are the following categories:

(I) A financial asset or financial liability at fair value through profit or loss

(II) Held-to-maturity investments

(III) Available-for-sale financial assets

(IV) Loans and receivables

(V) Financial liabilities measured at amortized cost

The fair values and carrying amounts of financial assets categorized as loans and receivables and available for sale securities as well as of financial liabilities for the considered reporting periods were as follows:

                             
6/30/2016 I. II. III. IV. V. Fair Value Level
 
Assets
 

Non-current assets

Restricted cash 206 206 Level 1

Current liabilities

Bank overdraft 384 384
Long-term debt 207 206 Level 2
Finance lease obligation 559 589 Level 2
 

The fair value of the Company's investments in the bond funds was determined based on the unit prices quoted by the respective fund management company.

The fair value of long-term debt was determined using discounted cash flow models based on the relevant forward interest rate yield curves. The fair value of finance lease obligations was determined using discounted cash flow models on market interest rates available to the Company for similar transactions at the relevant date.

Due to their short maturity and the current low level of interest rates, the carrying amounts of credit lines and bank overdrafts approximate fair value.
