Fourth Quarter 2018 Financial Results

  • Total revenues for the fourth quarter of 2018 were $1,705,000, compared to $427,000 in the fourth quarter of 2017 and $1,672,000 in the third quarter of 2018. The increase is attributed to commercial sales of the DragonFly Pro 3D printer that began in the fourth quarter of 2017.
  • Research and development (R&D) expenses for the fourth quarter of 2018 were $2,021,000, compared to $2,555,000 in the fourth quarter of 2017 and $2,129,000 in the third quarter of 2018. The decrease, both compared to the third quarter of 2018 and compared to the fourth quarter of 2017, was mainly attributed to a decrease in payroll and related expenses, and a decrease in materials expenses. The R&D expenses for the fourth quarter of 2018 are presented net of government grants in the amount of $4,000.
  • Sales and marketing expenses for the fourth quarter of 2018 were $1,220,000, compared to $761,000 in the fourth quarter of 2017 and $1,167,000 in the third quarter of 2018. The increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2017 was mainly attributed to an increase in payroll and related expenses and marketing and advertising expenses. The increase compared to the third quarter of 2018 was mainly attributed to an increase in travel and other sales and marketing expenses.
  • General and administrative (G&A) expenses for the fourth quarter of 2018 were $685,000, compared to $777,000 in the fourth quarter of 2017 and $685,000 in the third quarter of 2018. The decrease compared to the fourth quarter of 2017 is mainly a result of decrease in professional services expenses, and a decrease in directors’ fees. 
  • Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2018 was $3,967,000, or $0.04 per share, compared to $4,160,000, or $0.07 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2017 and $3,628,000, or $0.04 per share, in the third quarter of 2018.

Full Year 2018 Financial Results

  • Total revenues for the full year 2018 were $5,100,000, compared to $829,000 in 2017. The increase is due to additional sales of our products during 2018.
  • R&D expenses for 2018 were $8,623,000, compared to $10,819,000 in 2017. The decrease is mainly a result of a decrease in payroll and related expenses, as well as materials expenses. The R&D expenses for the year are presented net of government grants in the amount of $42,000.
  • Sales and marketing expenses for 2018 were $4,259,000, compared to $2,183,000 in 2017. The increase resulted primarily from an increase in salaries and related personnel expenses, reflecting an increase in the number of sales and marketing employees and an increase in marketing and advertising expenses.
  • G&A expenses for 2018 were $3,002,000, compared to $3,363,000 in 2017. The decrease resulted primarily from a decrease in professional services expenses, as well as a decrease in directors’ fees.
  • Net loss for the full year 2018 was $15,488,000, or $0.17 per share, compared to $17,503,000, or $0.31 per share, in 2017.

Balance Sheet Highlights

  • As part of Nano Dimension’s preparations and actual commencement of commercial shipments of its new DragonFly Pro 3D printer during 2018, the company increased its work-in-progress and finished goods inventory and ended the year with a combined inventory of more than $3 million. The company expects a portion of this inventory to convert to revenue in the ordinary course of the coming months.
  • Cash totaled $3,753,000 as of December 31, 2018, compared to $6,103,000 on December 31, 2017. The decrease compared to December 31, 2017 mainly reflects the proceeds received from the issuance of the company’s ordinary shares in the second quarter of 2018, less the cash used in operations and the cash used for the acquisition of fixed assets during the year ended December 31, 2018. On February 2019, Nano Dimension announced the closing of a public offering of American Depositary Shares, with total gross proceeds of $12 million.
  • Shareholders’ equity totaled $15,572,000 as of December 31, 2018, compared to $18,166,000 as of December 31, 2017.
