During the second quarter of 2022, 3D Systems’ non-GAAP gross profit decreased 5.2% year over year to $53.3 million. Consequently, non-GAAP gross profit margin contracted 330 basis points (bps) to 38.1%. This decrease was driven by year-over-year product mix changes due to divestitures and increased supply chain disruptions.
Non-GAAP operating expenses increased 24.5% to $60.9 million. The increase was due to spending related to future growth, which includes expenses from acquisitions, research and development, and corporate infrastructure.
Non-GAAP operating loss was $7.6 million versus the year-ago operating income of $7.3 million.
Adjusted EBITDA was negative $2.6 million. The margin of negative 1.9% reflected the inflationary impact on input costs and gradual investments for portfolio & business growth.

The company exited the second quarter with cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $638.2 million, lower than the prior quarter's $745.6 million. As of Jun 30, 2022, 3D Systems had a total debt of $448.1 million, slightly up from the previous quarter’s $447.5 million.
In the first six months of 2022, the company utilized $38.2 million of cash from operational activities.
3D Systems once again trimmed its full-year 2022 guidance. The company now expects revenues between $530 million and $570 million, compared with the previously expected band of $580 million to $625 million. It now projects non-GAAP gross margin to be 39-41% rather than the previously estimated 40-43%.
Non-GAAP operating expense is estimated to be $245-$250 million, raising the lower end from the earlier projection of $235-$250 million.
Management provided this guidance with the assumption that the pandemic, supply chain disruptions or any geopolitical events will not be of any concern in 2022.
