Second Quarter 2020 Highlights include:

We have a solid financial foundation, a healthy balance sheet, and resilient business model to weather the uncertain environment,” said Vicki Holt, President and Chief Executive Officer of Protolabs. “The COVID-19 pandemic provides an opportunity for Protolabs to demonstrate the value our digital business model can provide. During the quarter, we delivered over 8 million parts to support the medical industry, generating $12 million in revenue. Our dynamic digital manufacturing business model, and our agile and creative employees, will allow us to thrive as customer activity begins to re-accelerate.”

Additional Second Quarter 2020 Highlights include:

  • Gross margin was 49.2 percent of revenue for the second quarter of 2020, compared to 50.5 percent for the first quarter of 2020 on lower revenue.

  • GAAP operating margin was 13.5 percent of revenue during the second quarter of 2020, compared to 14.6 percent for the first quarter of 2020 due to lower revenue.
  • Non-GAAP operating margin was 17.6 percent of revenue during the second quarter of 2020, compared to 17.9 percent for the first quarter of 2020. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below.
  • The company generated $31.0 million in cash from operations during the second quarter of 2020 up from $22.4 million in first quarter 2020.

“Our business model continues to generate strong cash flow, despite the uncertainty in the market,” said John Way, Chief Financial Officer. “We will continue to monitor demand levels and prudently manage expenses, while continuing to invest in and execute on key strategic initiatives to position our business for strong growth in the future.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The company has included non-GAAP revenue growth that excludes the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates (collectively, “non-GAAP revenue growth”). Management believes these metrics are useful in evaluating the underlying business trends and ongoing operating performance of the company.

The company has included earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) and EBITDA, adjusted for stock-based compensation expense and unrealized gain on foreign currency (collectively, “Adjusted EBITDA”), in this press release to provide investors with additional information regarding the company’s financial results.

The company has included non-GAAP operating margin, adjusted for stock-based compensation expense and amortization expense (collectively, “non-GAAP operating margin”), in this press release to provide investors with additional information regarding the company’s financial results.

The company has included non-GAAP net income, adjusted for stock-based compensation expense, amortization expense, and unrealized gain on foreign currency (collectively, “non-GAAP net income”), in this press release to provide investors with additional information regarding the company’s financial results.

The company has provided below reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP revenue growth and Adjusted EBITDA, the most directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures are used by the company’s management and board of directors to understand and evaluate operating performance and trends and provide useful measures for period-to-period comparisons of the company’s business. Accordingly, the company believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating operating results in the same manner as our management and board of directors.

2 For the three and six-month periods ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, income tax effects were calculated using the effective tax rate for the relevant jurisdictions. Our non-GAAP tax rates differ from our GAAP tax rates due primarily to the mix of activity incurred in domestic and foreign tax jurisdictions and removing effective tax rate benefits from stock-based compensation activity in the quarter.
