The ExOne Company Reports 2017 Second Quarter Results

Gross profit was $3.6 million, resulting in a 16.7% gross margin in the first half of 2017, compared with 26.7% in the first half of 2016. The 2017 first half was impacted by the $1.5 million charge for obsolete inventories previously described. Additionally, the 2017 first half was impacted by approximately $0.7 million of costs associated with the Company’s consolidation and exit from its North Las Vegas PSC and non-core specialty machining operations in Michigan, partially offset by approximately $0.3 million of net gains on the disposal of the impacted property and equipment. As previously noted, the 2016 first half benefited by approximately $0.5 million from a sale associated with an exited product line, partially offset by approximately $0.2 million of losses on disposals of property and equipment.

R&D expense was $4.3 million in the 2017 first half compared with $3.8 million in the 2016 first half, with the increase primarily occurring in the second quarter previously described.

SG&A for the 2017 first half was $12.3 million, up $2.3 million compared with the prior-year period. The increase was principally due to the factors previously described for the second quarter, as well as an impairment of intangible assets of $0.3 million associated with exited product lines and an increase in selling costs to support revenue growth.

The net loss was $13.2 million, or $0.82 per share, for the first half of 2017 compared with $8.4 million, or $0.53 per share, in the 2016 first half.

Adjusted EBITDA was an $8.6 million loss in the first half of 2017, compared with a $5.0 million loss in last year’s first half. ExOne management believes that when used in conjunction with other measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, that Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, assists in the understanding of its financial results. See the attached tables for important disclosures regarding the Company’s use of Adjusted EBITDA as well as a reconciliation of net loss to Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016.

Capitalization – Cash Impacted by Inventory Build and Technology Investments

Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash as of June 30, 2017 were $25.2 million, compared with $28.2 million at December 31, 2016. Cash used for operating activities during the first half of 2017 and 2016 was $6.9 million and $0.2 million, respectively. The first half 2017 cash used for operating activities reflects the impact of a higher net loss and increased working capital usage, primarily to support anticipated sales volume in the second half of 2017. Cash capital expenditures were $0.4 million for the first half of 2017 compared with $0.3 million for the first half of 2016. The first half of 2017 included $3.7 million of cash proceeds from the sale of property and equipment associated facility exits.

Outlook – Updating Sales Outlook Modestly, Reiterating Adjusted EBITDA Expectations

Mr. McCarley concluded, “We are revising our 2017 revenue outlook modestly, to a range of 20% to 25% growth. Our guidance is based on our backlog and anticipated growth in the second half, particularly in the fourth quarter. In the third quarter, we expect the Exerial™ beta machine sales will unfavorably impact earnings and we will continue to make investments in organizational and R&D activities. However, we remain convinced that these costs will prove to be good investments and we remain on track to reach positive Adjusted EBITDA by the end of the year. Additionally, we expect a total cash balance in excess of $20 million at year end.”
