- Shapeways to Host Webcast and Conference Call -

NEW YORK — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 15, 2021 — Shapeways Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SHPW) (“Shapeways” or the “Company”), a leader in the large and fast-growing digital manufacturing industry, announced its results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021. On September 29, 2021, the Company completed its business combination with Galileo Acquisition Corp. and its common stock and warrants began trading on the NYSE on September 30, 2021 under the new ticker “SHPW” and “SHPW WS,” respectively.

Third Quarter and Recent Highlights

  • Revenue was $7.7 million in the third quarter of 2021 compared to $8.1 million in the third quarter of 2020.
  • Gross profit was $3.7 million in the third quarter of 2021 compared to $3.7 million in the third quarter of 2020.
  • Gross margins improved by 180 bps to 47.5% in the third quarter of 2021 compared to 45.7% in the third quarter of 2020 due to high value product focus, continued operational improvements, and further software utilization.
  • In October, rebranded its purpose-built software platform, Otto™ Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), phase one of which is designed as a limited ordering service for traditional manufacturers seeking a simpler, faster, and more flexible path to 3D printing for industrial grade production.
  • Strengthened the board with its appointment of a new independent director Leslie C. G. Campbell. Ms. Campbell has more than 30 years of multi-disciplinary experience in the technology, finance, software and information services industries.

“The third quarter was transformational for Shapeways as we completed our business combination with a strengthened balance sheet to support future growth,” said Greg Kress, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer. “With the closing of this transaction, we are accelerating our investments to drive new sales growth, including implementing new additive manufacturing technologies and scaling our business development capabilities. Our proprietary software offering continues to grow with the broader introduction of Otto™, and we are excited to offer our SaaS solution to traditional manufacturers seeking a more efficient process. The timing of closing the business combination resulted in the deferral of our planned investment spend, which is having an impact on our near-term expectations and the anticipated timing of the ramp in revenues associated with those investments. Moving forward, we believe we are well positioned to execute on our strategic objectives. While the timing of expectations has shifted, our conviction has not, and we have exciting opportunities as we look to add manufacturing capacity, capture more share of wallet with additional hardware and materials offerings, and continue to grow our proprietary software platform, and we believe we have now set the stage for future growth.”
