Q2 2018 Financial Results Summary:
Revenue for the second
quarter of 2018 was $170.2 million, compared to $170.0 million for the
same period last year.

  • GAAP gross margin was 49.1% for the quarter, flat compared to the same
    period last year.
  • Non-GAAP gross margin was 52.5% for the quarter, compared to 53.0% for
    the same period last year.
  • GAAP operating loss for the quarter was $1.9 million, compared to
    operating loss of $5.0 million for the same period last year.
  • Non-GAAP operating income for the quarter was $10.6 million, compared
    to operating income of $11.1 million for the same period last year.
  • GAAP net loss for the quarter was $3.6 million, or ($0.08) per diluted
    share, compared to a net loss of $6.0 million, or ($0.11) per diluted
    share, for the same period last year.
  • Non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $8.1 million, or $0.15 per
    diluted share, compared to Non-GAAP net income of $9.2 million, or
    $0.17 per diluted share, reported for the same period last year.
  • Net R&D expenses for the quarter amounted to $23.7 million, an
    increase of 1.9% compared to the same period last year.
  • The Company generated $13.0 million in cash from operations during the
    second quarter and ended the period with $346.7 million in cash and
    cash equivalents.

"Our second quarter revenue was in-line with our expectations for the
period, as we saw recovery in high-end system orders in North America
and in certain verticals, specifically our customers in government,
aerospace, and automotive," said Elchanan (Elan) Jaglom, Interim Chief
Executive Officer of Stratasys. "We are pleased with the increased
adoption we are seeing for our production-focused solutions, including
our new F900 Aircraft Interiors Certification Solutions (AICS) 3D
Printer and our J700 Dental 3D Printer, both of which address the unique
needs of production applications in their respective verticals for
aerospace and dental. We continued our positive trend of cash generation
and operational discipline, while we also continue to ramp up our
investments in our core FDM and PolyJet technologies, new metal additive
manufacturing platform, advanced composite materials, and software and
application development."

Financial Guidance:
Stratasys today reiterated the following
information regarding the Company's guidance for projected revenue and
net income for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2018:

  • Revenue guidance of $670 to $700 million.
  • GAAP net loss of $41 to $25 million, or ($0.75) to ($0.46) per diluted
    share.
  • Non-GAAP net income of $16 to $27 million, or $0.30 to $0.50 per
    diluted share.
  • Non-GAAP operating margins of 4.5% to 6%.

Stratasys also updated the following guideline regarding the Company's
projected performance and strategic plans for 2018:

  • Capital expenditures are projected at $30 to $40 million, compared to
    previous projection of $40 to $50 million.

The Company's guidance reflects increased investments in R&D, tools,
materials, and additional resources aimed at expanding addressable
markets by accelerating development efforts for the new metal additive
manufacturing platform, further advancements based on its FDM and
PolyJet technologies, and specific go-to-market initiatives in order to
deepen customer engagement.

Given the expected ongoing negative impact of not recording a tax
benefit on U.S. tax losses on the Company's non-GAAP net income, the
Company believes that the rate of growth in its non-GAAP operating
income will be the best measure of its performance.

Non-GAAP earnings guidance excludes $32 to $34 million of projected
amortization of intangible assets; $17 to $19 million of share-based
compensation expense; and $7 to $9 million in reorganization and other
related costs; and includes $4 to $5 million in tax expenses related to
non-GAAP adjustments.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

The statements in this press release regarding Stratasys' strategy, and
the statements regarding its projected future financial performance,
including the financial guidance concerning its expected results for
2018, are forward-looking statements reflecting management's current
expectations and beliefs. These forward-looking statements are based on
current information that is, by its nature, subject to rapid and even
abrupt change. Due to risks and uncertainties associated with Stratasys'
business, actual results could differ materially from those projected or
implied by these forward-looking statements. These risks and
uncertainties include, but are not limited to: the degree of market
acceptance of our 3D printers, high-performance systems and consumables,
and the software and technology included in those systems; potential
declines in the demand for, or the prices of, our products and services,
or volume of our sales, due to decreased demand either for them
specifically or in the 3D printing market generally; potential further
charges against earnings that we could be required to take due to
impairment of additional goodwill or other intangible assets; potential
shifts in our product mix to lower-margin products or in our revenues
mix towards our AM services business; any failure to adequately adapt
our infrastructure and properly integrate the internal and external
sources of our growth to generate intended benefits (including from the
companies that we recently acquired); the impact of competition and new
technologies; risks related to our relationships with our suppliers,
resellers and independent sales agents, and our operations at our
manufacturing sites; risks related to the international scope of our
operations and regulatory compliance (including reporting,
environmental, anti-corruption and other regulatory compliance) related
to that scope of operations; risks related to the security of our
information systems (including risks related to potential
cyber-attacks); changes in the overall global economic environment or in
political and economic conditions in the countries in which we operate;
changes in our strategy; costs and potential liability relating to
litigation and regulatory proceedings; and those additional factors
referred to in Item 3.D "Key Information - Risk Factors", Item 4,
"Information on the Company", Item 5, "Operating and Financial Review
and Prospects," and all other parts of our Annual Report on Form 20-F
for the year ended December 31, 2017 (the "2017 Annual Report"),
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on
February 28th, 2018. Readers are urged to carefully review
and consider the various disclosures made throughout our 2017 Annual
Report, and the Report on Form 6-K that attaches Stratasys' unaudited,
condensed consolidated financial statements as of, and for the quarter
and six months ended, June 30, 2018, and its review of its results of
operations and financial condition for those periods, which has been
furnished to the SEC on or about the date hereof, and our other reports
filed with or furnished to the SEC, which are designed to advise
interested parties of the risks and factors that may affect our
business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects. Any
guidance provided, and other forward-looking statements made, in this
press release are made as of the date hereof, and Stratasys undertakes
no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking
statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or
otherwise, except as required by law.

Use of non-GAAP financial measures

The non-GAAP data included herein, which excludes certain items as
described below, are non-GAAP financial measures. Our management
believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful information
for investors and shareholders of our Company in gauging our results of
operations (x) on an ongoing basis after excluding merger and
acquisition related expense and reorganization-related charges or gains,
and (y) excluding non-cash items such as stock-based compensation
expenses, acquired intangible assets amortization, including intangible
assets amortization related to equity method investments, impairment of
long-lived assets, changes in fair value of obligations in connection
with acquisitions and the corresponding tax effect of those items. These
non-GAAP adjustments either do not reflect actual cash outlays that
impact our liquidity and our financial condition or have a non-recurring
impact on the statement of operations, as assessed by management. These
non-GAAP financial measures are presented to permit investors to more
fully understand how management assesses our performance for internal
planning and forecasting purposes. The limitations of using these
non-GAAP financial measures as performance measures are that they
provide a view of our results of operations without including all items
indicated above during a period, which may not provide a comparable view
of our performance to other companies in our industry. Investors and
other readers should consider non-GAAP measures only as supplements to,
not as substitutes for or as superior measures to, the measures of
financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliation
between results on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis is provided in a table
below.
