voxeljet AG Reports Financial Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2021

·20 min read

voxeljet AG (NASDAQ: VJET) (the "Company", or "voxeljet"), a provider of high-speed, large-format 3D printers and on-demand parts services to industrial and commercial customers, today announced consolidated financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

Highlights - First Quarter 2021

  • Total revenues for the first quarter increased 4.5% to kEUR 4,060 from kEUR 3,884

  • Gross profit margin and gross profit decreased to 25.6% from 29.7% and to kEUR 1,039 from kEUR 1,155, respectively

  • Systems revenues increased 59.9% to kEUR 2,087 from kEUR 1,305

  • Services revenues decreased 23.5% to kEUR 1,973 from kEUR 2,579

  • Successful completion of two capital increases in January and February 2021

  • Reaffirm full year 2021 guidance

Dr. Ingo Ederer, Chief Executive Officer of voxeljet, commented: "We are off to a decent start in 2021 and reached significant technological milestones: in High Speed Sintering, we successfully printed and sintered with our new 3D printer on what we believe to be the largest build area for polymer sintering in the industry. A day-long stress test was also successful. We are in advanced discussions with large chemical companies for joint material development projects. We firmly believe that this new printer and new material combinations will significantly increase our total addressable market. Regarding VJET X: the premium German car maker meanwhile operates its first VJET X units largely without requiring our support, which is excellent news. We believe we have the ecosystem, resources and technology to become the key supplier of solutions for high volume, industrial 3D printing. Keep in mind, that is the reason why we started the company 20 years ago."

First Quarter 2021 Results

Revenues for the first quarter of 2021 increased by 4.5% to kEUR 4,060 compared to kEUR 3,884 in the first quarter of 2020.

Revenues from our Systems segment, which focuses on the development, production and sale of 3D printers, increased 59.9% to kEUR 2,087 in the first quarter of 2021 from kEUR 1,305 in last year’s first quarter. The Company delivered two new 3D printers in the first quarter of 2021, compared to one used and refurbished printer delivered in last year’s first quarter. Systems revenues also include all Systems-related revenues from consumables, spare parts and maintenance. The increase of revenues from our Systems segment was mainly due to higher revenues from the sale of 3D printers, but also Systems-related revenues slightly increased. Systems revenues represented 51.4% of total revenues in the first quarter of 2021 compared to 33.6% in last year’s first quarter.

Revenues from our Services segment, which focuses on the printing of on-demand parts for our customers, decreased 23.5% to kEUR 1,973 in the first quarter of 2021 from kEUR 2,579 in the comparative period of 2020. This was mainly due to lower revenue contributions from our subsidiary voxeljet America Inc. ("voxeljet America") still impacted by lower market demand related to the slowdown of the economy caused by the global pandemic of COVID-19 disease. Also, still impacted by COVID-19, revenue contributions from the German operation decreased as well as from our subsidiary voxeljet China Co. Ltd ("voxeljet China").

Cost of sales were kEUR 3,021 for the first quarter of 2021 compared to kEUR 2,729 for the first quarter of 2020.

Gross profit and gross profit margin were kEUR 1,039 and 25.6%, respectively, in the first quarter of 2021 compared to kEUR 1,155 and 29.7%, respectively in the first quarter of 2020.

Gross profit for our Systems segment increased to kEUR 581 in the first quarter of 2021 from kEUR 361 in the first quarter of 2020. This was related to the increase in revenues. Gross profit margin for this segment slightly increased to 27.8% in the first quarter of 2021 compared to 27.7% in the first quarter of 2020 and was therefore almost unchanged.

Gross profit for our Services segment decreased to kEUR 458 in the first quarter of 2021 compared to kEUR 794 in the first quarter of 2020. The gross profit margin for this segment also decreased to 23.2% in the first quarter of 2021 from 30.8% in the first quarter of 2020. Both, the decrease of gross profit as well as gross profit margin was related to the fixed costs associated with our service centers in United States, Germany and China.

Selling expenses decreased to kEUR 1,448 for the first quarter of 2021 compared to kEUR 1,536 in the first quarter of 2020, related to lower distribution expenses, in spite of the slight increase in revenues. Expenses such as shipping and packaging vary from quarter to quarter depending on quantity and types of products being sold, as well as the destinations where those goods are being delivered.

Administrative expenses were kEUR 1,483 for the first quarter of 2021 compared to kEUR 1,376 in the first quarter of 2020. The increase is mainly related to higher legal advisor fees related to our stock market listing as well as our communication to financial institutions.

Research and development ("R&D") expenses slightly decreased to kEUR 1,604 in the first quarter of 2021 from kEUR 1,635 in the first quarter of 2020. The decrease of kEUR 31 was mainly due to lower depreciation expenses as well as lower personnel expenses partially offset by higher material expenses.

Other operating expenses in the first quarter of 2021 were kEUR 101 compared to kEUR 659 in the prior year period. This was mainly related to lower losses from foreign currency transactions, amounting to kEUR 89 for the first quarter of 2021 compared to kEUR 613 in the last year’s first quarter.

Other operating income was kEUR 914 for the first quarter of 2021 compared to kEUR 532 in the first quarter of 2020. The increase was mainly due to higher gains from foreign currency transactions, amounting to kEUR 778 compared to kEUR 427 in the last year’s first quarter.

The changes in foreign currency gains and losses were primarily driven by the valuation of the intercompany loans granted by the parent company to our US subsidiary.

Operating loss was kEUR 2,683 in the first quarter of 2021 compared to an operating loss of kEUR 3,519 in the comparative period in 2020. The improvement was primarily related to the net impact of the quarter over quarter changes in other operating expenses and other operating income, which was kEUR 940 positive. This was partially offset by a slight drop in gross profit as well as slightly higher administrative expenses.

Financial result was negative kEUR 5,698 in the first quarter of 2021, compared to a financial result of positive kEUR 981 in the comparative period in 2020. This was mainly due to higher interest expense from the revaluation of the derivative financial instruments related to the performance participation interest ("PPI") for tranche A and tranche B1 of the European Investment Bank (the "EIB") loan amounting to kEUR 5,188 in connection with the anti-dilution protection clause.

In the first quarter of 2021, the revaluation of the derivative financial instruments related to the PPI including the anti-dilution protection clause for tranche A and tranche B1 resulted in a finance expense of kEUR 1,906 and kEUR 3,282, respectively. This compares to a financial income from the revaluation related to tranche A for the first quarter of 2020 of kEUR 1,557.

The derivative financial instruments are revalued on each balance sheet date, with changes in the fair value between reporting periods recorded within financial result of the consolidated statements of comprehensive loss. An increase in our share price results in a finance expense, while a decrease leads to a finance income, holding other parameters constant.

At the time tranche A of kEUR 10,000 was received in December 2017, the EIB under the Synthetic Warrant Agreement was entitled to receive as consideration cash equal to the market value of 195,790 ordinary shares of the Company (or equivalent number of ADS of the Company) at the maturity date (5 years after draw down), after the occurrence of a trigger event, or on the expiration date (10 years after draw down). Under the anti-dilution protection clause of the agreement the number of ordinary shares under the Synthetic Warrant Agreement was increased to 254,527 as a result of the capital increase effective October 17, 2018 and November 1, 2018. As a result of the capital increases effective January 25, 2021 and February 17, 2021, also under the anti-dilution protection clause, the number of ordinary shares under the Synthetic Warrant Agreement was increased to 310,558.

At the time tranche B1 of kEUR 5,000 was received in June 2020, the EIB under the Synthetic Warrant Agreement, was entitled to receive as consideration cash equal to the market value of 404,928 ordinary shares of the Company (or equivalent number of ADS of the Company) at the maturity date (5 years after draw down), after the occurrence of a trigger event, or on the expiration date (10 years after draw down of the tranche A). As a result of the capital increases effective January 25, 2021 and February 17, 2021, under the anti-dilution protection clause, the number of ordinary shares under the Synthetic Warrant Agreement was increased to 494,068. Related to tranche B1, voxeljet and the EIB also agreed under the Finance Contract, a PIK interest (payment in kind interest) rate of 5% in addition to a 7% fixed interest rate.

Interest expense included interest from long term debt, which amounted to kEUR 524 for the first quarter of 2021, compared to kEUR 319 in the comparative period in 2020. The increase was mainly related to the draw down of tranche B1 from the EIB in June 2020, as mentioned above reflecting the PIK interest as well as the fixed interest.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2021 was kEUR 8,329 or EUR 1.51 per share, as compared to net loss of kEUR 2,601, or EUR 0.53 per share, in the first quarter of 2020.

Effective August 14, 2020, we changed the ratio of our American Depositary Shares ("ADSs") to ordinary shares from each ADS representing one-fifth (1/5) of one ordinary share (5:1) to each ADS representing one ordinary share (1:1). Based on a conversion rate of one ADSs per ordinary share, net loss was at EUR 1.51 per ADS for the first quarter of 2021, compared to a net loss of EUR 0.11 per ADS for the first quarter of 2020, based on a conversion rate of five ADSs per ordinary share. Earnings per share is computed by dividing net income attributable to stockholders of the parent by the weighted-average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the periods. Earnings per ADS is calculated by dividing the above earnings per share by one (before August 14, 2020: five) as each ordinary share represents one (before August 14, 2020: five) ADS(s).

Business Outlook

Our revenue guidance for the second quarter of 2021 is expected to be in the range of kEUR 4,000 to kEUR 6,000.

We reaffirm our guidance for the full year ending December 31, 2021:

- Full year revenue is expected to be in the range of kEUR 22,500 to kEUR 27,500

- Gross margin for the full year is expected to be above 32.5%

- Operating expenses for the full year are expected as follows: selling and administrative expenses are expected to be in the range of kEUR 11,400 to kEUR 11,900 and R&D expenses are projected to be between approximately kEUR 6,000 and kEUR 6,250. Depreciation and amortization expense is expected to be between kEUR 3,000 and kEUR 3,250.

- Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2021 is expected to be neutral-to-positive. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss), as calculated under IFRS accounting principles before interest (income) expense, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and excluding other operating (income) expense resulting from foreign exchange gains or losses on the intercompany loans granted to the subsidiaries.

- Capital expenditures for the full year are projected to be in the range of kEUR 1,000 to kEUR 1,250, which primarily includes ongoing investments in our subsidiaries.

Our total backlog of 3D printer orders at March 31, 2021 was kEUR 6,628, which represents eight 3D printers. This compares to a backlog of kEUR 6,844 representing nine 3D printers, at December 31, 2020. As production and delivery of our printers is generally characterized by lead times ranging between three to nine months, the conversion rate of order backlog into revenue is dependent on the equipping process for the respective 3D printer as well as the timing of customers’ requested deliveries.

At March 31, 2021, we had cash and cash equivalents of kEUR 9,761, additionally we hold restricted cash of kEUR 2,610, held kEUR 7,929 of investments in bond funds, and kEUR 2,559 in a note receivable, which are included in current financial assets on our consolidated statements of financial position.

Successful Completion of Capital Increases

On January 25, 2021, the Company announced that it has completed its registered direct offering and sale of 621,170 ordinary shares in the form of ADS at a purchase price of € 13.33 per share (this equals $16.16 per ordinary share based on the exchange rate as of the close of business in New York on January 14, 2021). The gross proceeds of the offering amount to approximately $10 million (€ 8.3 million) before deducting fees and expenses. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the offering for general corporate purposes. A.G.P./Alliance Global Partners acted as sole placement agent for the offering.

On February 17, 2021, the Company announced that it has completed its registered direct offering and sale of 443,414 ordinary shares in the form of ADS at a purchase price of € 22.27 per share (this equals $26.95 per ordinary share based on the exchange rate as of the close of business in New York on February 9, 2021). The gross proceeds of the offering amount to approximately $12 million (€ 9.9 million) before deducting fees and expenses. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the offering for general corporate purposes. A.G.P./Alliance Global Partners acted as sole placement agent for the offering.

The proceeds from those capital increases, net of transaction costs and tax, amounted to approximately € 16.0 million. After those two capital increases, the number of outstanding shares of the Company as of March 31, 2021 amounted to 5,900,584.

Non-IFRS Measure

Management regularly uses both IFRS and non-IFRS results and expectations internally to assess its overall performance of the business, making operating decisions, and forecasting and planning for future periods. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful financial measure to the Company’s investors as it helps investors better understand and evaluate the projections our management board provides. The Company’s calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled financial measures reported by other peer companies. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a substitute to financial measures prepared in accordance with IFRS.

The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental financial measure of its financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss), as calculated under IFRS accounting principles, interest (income) expense, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and excluding other (income) expense resulting from foreign exchange gains or losses on the intercompany loans granted to the subsidiaries. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA to be an important financial measure because it excludes the effects of fluctuating foreign exchange gains or losses on the intercompany loans granted to its subsidiaries. We are unable to reasonably estimate the potential full-year financial impact of foreign currency translation because of volatility in foreign exchange rates. Therefore, we are unable to provide a reconciliation to our forward-looking guidance for non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA without unreasonable effort as certain information necessary to calculate such measure on an IFRS basis is unavailable, dependent on future events outside of our control and cannot be predicted without unreasonable efforts by the Company.

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1. Preparation of financial statements

Our condensed consolidated interim financial statements include the accounts of voxeljet AG and its wholly-owned subsidiaries voxeljet America Inc., voxeljet UK Ltd. and voxeljet India Pvt. Ltd., as well as voxeljet China Co. Ltd., which are collectively referred to herein as the ‘Group’ or the ‘Company’, which is listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market ("NASDAQ"). In December 2020, management initiated the wind-up of voxeljet UK.

Our condensed consolidated interim financial statements were prepared in compliance with all applicable measurement and presentation rules contained in International Financial Reporting Standards (‘IFRS’) as set forth by the International Accounting Standards Board (‘IASB’) and Interpretations of the IFRS Interpretations Committee (‘IFRIC’). The designation IFRS also includes all valid International Accounting Standards (‘IAS’); and the designation IFRIC also includes all valid interpretations of the Standing Interpretations Committee (‘SIC’). Specifically, these financial statements were prepared in accordance with the disclosure requirements and the measurement principles for interim financial reporting purposes specified by IAS 34. Our condensed consolidated interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto that are included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2020. The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2021, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2021.

The IASB issued a number of new IFRS standards which are required to be adopted in annual periods beginning after January 1, 2021.

The adoption of standards effective 01/2021 did not have a material impact on the interim financial statements as of and for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The Company has not yet conclusively determined what impact the new standards, amendments or interpretations effective 01/2022 or later will have on its financial statements, but does not expect they will have a significant impact.

The condensed consolidated interim financial statements as of and for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 were authorized for issue by the Management Board on May 13, 2021.

Going concern

The financial statements have been prepared on the basis of going concern which contemplates continuity of normal business activities and the realization of assets and settlement of liabilities in the ordinary course of business.

voxeljet has recognized continuous net losses during the three months ended March 31, 2021, full year 2020, 2019 and 2018 amounting to kEUR 8,329 kEUR, 15,481, kEUR 13,978 and kEUR 8,747, respectively. Additionally, voxeljet had negative cash flows from operating activities in the three months ended March 31, 2021, full year 2020, 2019 and 2018 of kEUR 1,757, kEUR 6,598, kEUR 6,592, kEUR 7,331, respectively, mainly due to continuous net losses.

Since the global outbreak of COVID-19, the Company has experienced and expects to continue to experience lower demand in both, the Systems and the Services segment. voxeljet’s clients have postponed and may continue to postpone larger investments and therefore, the demand for 3D printers may also decrease. In addition, the COVID-19 situation could cause further delays in installation of 3D printers at customers’ facilities, which could lead to postponed revenue recognition for those transactions. Since the third quarter of 2020, the Company experienced a slight recovery of demand compared to the prior two quarters in 2020, and in the fourth quarter 2020 as well as the first quarter 2021 this positive trend has continued, although, demand is not on the same level like before COVID-19. Both a decrease in revenues as well as potential delays in the installations increase the risk and likelihood of lower cash inflows. Such risks have been evaluated by management and consequently have been considered in the Company’s liquidity forecast, which assumes voxeljet’s business plan is executed appropriately and sales track as expected. Management updates the liquidity forecast on an ongoing basis.

In January 2021, the Company has successfully completed its registered direct offering and sale of 621,170 ordinary shares in the form of ADS at a purchase price of € 13.33 per share (this equals $16.16 per ordinary share based on the exchange rate as of the close of business in New York on January 14, 2021). This provided voxeljet with gross proceeds of the offering amount to approximately $10 million (€ 8.3 million) before deducting fees and expenses. In February 2021, the Company completed another registered direct offering and sale of 443,414 ordinary shares in the form of ADS at a purchase price of € 22.27 per ordinary share (this equals $26.95 per ordinary share based on the exchange rate as of the close of business in New York on February 9, 2021). This provided voxeljet with gross proceeds of approximately $12 million (€ 9.9 million) before deducting fees and expenses. Those capital increases improved the Company’s liquidity as well as equity ratio significantly. In spite of this success, management is taking further steps to raise further funds which may include debt or equity financing, not without mentioning, that there can be no assurance that voxeljet will be able to raise further funds on terms favorable to the Company, if at all. The proceeds from those capital increases, net of transaction costs and tax, amounted to approximately € 16.0 million.

Based on the Company’s current liquidity and capital resources in combination with the current liquidity forecasts, management believes that the Company has the ability to meet its financial obligations for at least the next 24 months and therefore continues as a going concern.

Impairment test

Non-financial assets are tested for impairment if there are indicators that the carrying amounts may not be recoverable. The Company considers the COVID-19 situation as such an indicator. Therefore, voxeljet performed an impairment test for the non‑financial assets for the end of the reporting period. An impairment loss is recognized in the amount by which the asset’s carrying amount exceeds its recoverable amount. The recoverable amount is defined as the higher of an asset’s fair value less cost to sell and its value in use. As individual assets do not generate largely independent cash flows, impairment testing is performed at the cash generating unit level. An individual fixed asset within a CGU cannot be written down below fair value less cost incurred to sell the individual asset. The impairment test, which the Company performed, did not lead to any write downs.

2. Summary of significant accounting policies

The principal accounting policies applied in the preparation of these interim financial statements are set out in the Company’s financial statements as of December 31, 2020, which can be found in its Annual Report on Form 20-F that was filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on March 30, 2021. These policies have been applied to all financial periods presented.

3. Share based payment arrangements

On April 7, 2017, voxeljet AG established a share option plan that entitles key management personnel and senior employees of voxeljet AG and its subsidiaries to purchase shares of the parent company.

Total options available under the share option plan are 372,000. On April 7, 2017, 279,000 options (75%, Tranche 1) were granted. On April 12, 2018, 93,000 options (25%, Tranche 2) were granted.

The vesting conditions include a service condition (the options vest after a period of four years of continued service from the respective grant date) and a market condition (the options may only be exercised if the share price exceeds the exercise price over a period of 90 consecutive days by at least 20% in the period between the grant date and the respective exercise time frame) of which both conditions must be met.

The fair value of the employee share option plan has been measured for Tranches 1 and 2 using a Monte Carlo simulation. The market condition has been incorporated into the fair value at grant date.

The inputs used in the measurement of the fair value at grant date are as follows:

The respective expected volatility has been based on an evaluation of the historical volatility of the Company’s share price as at the grant date. As at March 31, 2021 no options are exercisable and 353,400 options are outstanding. The weighted-average contractual life of the options at March 31, 2021 amounts to 6.3 years (March 31, 2020: 7.3 years).

The expenses recognized in the profit and loss statement in relation to the share-based payment arrangements amounted to kEUR 165 in the three months ended March 31, 2021 (three months ended March 31, 2020: kEUR 167).

The valuation techniques used to value financial instruments include the use of quoted market prices or dealer quotes for similar instruments as well as discounted cash flow analysis.

The fair value of the Company’s investments in the bond funds was determined based on the quoted unit prices received by the fund management company.

The fair value of the derivative financial instruments that are not traded in an active market is determined using valuation techniques which maximize the use of observable market data and rely as little as possible on entity-specific estimates. The fair values have been determined based on share prices and the relevant discount rates.

The fair value of long-term debt was determined using discounted cash flow models based on the relevant forward interest rate yield curves, considering the credit risk of voxeljet.

Due to their short maturity and the current low level of interest rates, the carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, trade receivables, trade payables, term deposit, credit lines and bank overdrafts approximate their fair values.

The group’s policy is to recognize transfers into and transfers out of fair value hierarchy levels as at the end of the reporting period.

In March 2021, there were no transfers of financial instruments measured at fair value between level 1 and level 2.

As of March 31, 2021, the Company was in compliance with all covenants related to the loan granted by the EIB. Therefore, the related financial liabilities are classified as non-current.
