Is voxeljet AG Growing?

Over the last three years, voxeljet AG has not seen its earnings per share change much, though they have deteriorated slightly. It achieved revenue growth of 14% over the last year.

Unfortunately there is a complete lack of earnings per share improvement, over three years. While the revenue growth is good to see, it is outweighed by the fact that earnings per share are down, over three years. It’s hard to argue the company is firing on all cylinders, so shareholders might be averse to high CEO remuneration.

Has voxeljet AG Been A Good Investment?

With a three year total loss of 55%, voxeljet AG would certainly have some dissatisfied shareholders. It therefore might be upsetting for shareholders if the CEO were paid generously.

In Summary…

Ingo Ederer is paid around the same as most CEOs of similar size companies.

After looking at EPS and total shareholder returns, it’s certainly hard to argue the company has performed well, since both metrics are down. Suffice it to say, we don’t think the CEO is underpaid!
