“Our results in the third quarter reflect a continuation of our track record of delivering earnings and profitability, despite challenging global economic conditions that have impacted customer investments in our target verticals in Europe and Asia. In the third quarter we continued to observe strong performance in our core professional and production-focused business in the Americas, our largest market, with specific strength in high-end FDM and PolyJet systems, our F123 Series, and our target verticals of automotive and aerospace,” said Elchanan (Elan) Jaglom, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Stratasys. “We continue to believe that when macro conditions improve we will see a return to growth in Europe and Asia, and believe we are well positioned with an impressive portfolio of new products as we finish 2019.”
Stratasys today updated the following information regarding the Company’s guidance for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019:
- Revenue guidance of $640 million to $655 million, compared to previous guidance of $670 million to $700 million.
- GAAP net loss of $17 million to $3 million, or ($0.31) to ($0.05) per diluted share.
- Non-GAAP net income of $30 million to $38 million, or $0.55 to $0.70 per diluted share.
- Non-GAAP operating margins of 5.5% to 6.5%.
- Capital expenditures are projected at $30 million to $45 million.
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 is the best measure of its performance.
Non-GAAP earnings guidance excludes $23 million to $24 million of projected amortization of intangible assets; $22 million to $24 million of share-based compensation expense; reorganization and other expenses of ($1 million) to $1 million. Non-GAAP guidance includes negative tax adjustments of $2 million to $3 million on the above non-GAAP items.
