Kay Factors to Note

3D Systems’ second-quarter performance is expected to have benefited from increased demand for its Healthcare segment products, as the markets and the supply chain recover from the impact of the pandemic. Also, stabilization at the Industrial division is likely to have fueled top-line growth during the quarter under review.

Strength in demand for additive solutions in general across industries is likely to have been a tailwind.

The company’s cost-saving efforts, which include cost-restructuring activities as well as reduced hiring and lower travel expenses due to the coronavirus pandemic, are expected to have boosted margins in the second quarter.

Additionally, 3D Systems’ divestitures of Cimatron and GibbsCAM software businesses for $65 million in fourth-quarter 2020 have helped it eliminate debts. This is likely to have positively impacted the balance sheet of the company, leaving it in a net cash position.
