First Quarter 2020 Results

Revenues for the first quarter of 2020 decreased by 30.2% to kEUR 3,884 compared to kEUR 5,565 in the first quarter of 2019.

Revenues from our Systems segment, which focuses on the development, production and sale of 3D printers, decreased 46.0% to kEUR 1,305 in the first quarter of 2020 from kEUR 2,415 in last year’s first quarter. The Company delivered one used and refurbished 3D printer in the first quarter of 2020, compared to two new and 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 decrease of revenues from our Systems segment was mainly due to lower revenues from the sale of 3D printers, but also due to decrease of Systems-related revenues. The decreases in both business fields were mainly due to the ongoing global pandemic of COVID-19 disease (“the COVID-19 situation”). The situation significantly limited our ability to perform installations of 3D printers as well as to offer service visits. Therefore, we were not able to fulfill our scheduled transactions and consequently we could not recognize revenue on those. Systems revenues represented 33.6% of total revenues in the first quarter of 2020 compared to 43.4% in last year’s first quarter.

Revenues from our Services segment, which focuses on the printing of on-demand parts for our customers, decreased 18.1% to kEUR 2,579 in the first quarter of 2020 from kEUR 3,150 in the comparative period of 2019. This was mainly due to lower revenue contributions from our subsidiary voxeljet America Inc. (“voxeljet America”) due to lower market demand related to the slowdown of the economy caused by the global pandemic of COVID-19 disease. Revenue contribution from our voxeljet UK Ltd. (“voxeljet UK”) significantly decreased. This was related to the close down of our service center in the United Kingdom in the fourth quarter of 2019 in the course of our restructuring, which started in the third quarter of 2019. Revenue contributions from the German operation as well as from our subsidiary voxeljet China Co. Ltd (“voxeljet China”) were almost flat.

Cost of sales were kEUR 2,729 for the first quarter of 2020 compared to kEUR 3,652 for the first quarter of 2019.

Gross profit and gross profit margin were kEUR 1,155 and 29.7%, respectively, in the first quarter of 2020 compared to kEUR 1,913 and 34.4%, respectively in the first quarter of 2019.

Gross profit for our Systems segment decreased to kEUR 361 in the first quarter of 2020 from kEUR 829 in the first quarter of 2019. Gross profit margin for this segment decreased to 27.7% in the first quarter of 2020 compared to 34.3% in the first quarter of 2019. This was mainly due to lower gross profit margin contributions from revenues from the sale of 3D printers but also from Systems-related revenues compared to last year’s first quarter.


Gross profit for our Services segment decreased to kEUR 794 in the first quarter of 2020 compared to kEUR 1,084 in the first quarter of 2019. The gross profit margin for this segment decreased to 30.8% in the first quarter of 2020 from 34.4% in the first quarter of 2019. This was mainly related to lower gross profit as well as gross profit margin contribution as a result of lower utilization inline with the decrease in revenues. This was partially offset by higher gross profit and gross profit margin contribution from the German service center. The impacts from changes in gross profit and gross profit margin from voxeljet UK and voxeljet China were not significant.

Selling expenses decreased to kEUR 1,536 for the first quarter of 2020 compared to kEUR 1,676 in the first quarter of 2019, related to the significant decrease in revenues. Shipping and packaging expenses vary from quarter to quarter depending on quantity and types of products, as well as the destinations where those goods are being delivered.

Administrative expenses were kEUR 1,376 for the first quarter of 2020 compared to kEUR 1,439 in the first quarter of 2019 and therefore almost unchanged.

Research and development (“R&D”) expenses decreased to kEUR 1,635 in the first quarter of 2020 from kEUR 1,705 in the first quarter of 2019. The decrease of kEUR 70 was mainly due to lower material expenses as well as lower personnel expenses partially offset by higher consulting fees.

Other operating expenses in the first quarter of 2020 were kEUR 659 compared to kEUR 13 in the prior year period. This was mainly related to higher losses from foreign currency transactions, amounting to kEUR 613 for the first quarter of 2020 compared to kEUR 5 in the last year’s first quarter.

Other operating income was kEUR 532 for the first quarter of 2020 compared to kEUR 978 in the first quarter of 2019. The decrease was mainly due to lower gains from foreign currency transactions, amounting to kEUR 427 compared to kEUR 815 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 UK and US subsidiaries.

Operating loss was kEUR 3,519 in the first quarter of 2020, compared to an operating loss of kEUR 1,942 in the comparative period in 2019. The decline was primarily related to a significant decrease in gross profit. In addition, the net impact of the quarter over quarter changes in other operating expenses and other operating income was kEUR 1,092 negative. This was partially offset by slightly lower operating expenses in the functions sales and marketing, administration and research and development.

Financial result was positive kEUR 981 in the first quarter of 2020, compared to a financial result of negative kEUR 660 in the comparative period in 2019. This was mainly due to higher interest income from the revaluation of the derivative financial instruments related to the EIB loan of kEUR 1,557 for the first quarter of 2020, compared to a negative impact and therefore an interest expense of kEUR 509 for the last year’s first quarter. 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. Interest expense included interest from long term debt with other financial institutions which amounted to kEUR 319 for the first quarter of 2020, compared to kEUR 242 in the comparative period in 2019.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2020 was kEUR 2,601 or EUR 0.53 per share, as compared to net loss of kEUR 2,616, or EUR 0.54 per share, in the first quarter of 2019.

Based on a conversion rate of five American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”) per ordinary share, net loss was EUR 0.11 per ADS for the first quarter of 2020, compared to a net loss of EUR 0.11 per ADS for the first quarter of 2019. 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 five as each ordinary share represents five ADSs.


Business Outlook

We reaffirm our guidance for the full year ending December 31, 2020:

-Full year revenue is expected to be in the range of kEUR 26,000 to kEUR 30,000
-Gross margin is expected to be above 40%
-Operating expenses for the full year are expected as follows: selling and administrative expenses are expected to be in the range of kEUR 13,000 to kEUR 13,250 and R&D expenses are projected to be between approximately kEUR 5,750 and kEUR 6,250. Depreciation and amortization expense is expected to be between kEUR 3,750 and kEUR 4,000.
-Adjusted EBITDA for the second half of the year ending December 31, 2020 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 are projected to be in the range of kEUR 500 to kEUR 1,000, which primarily includes ongoing investments in our subsidiaries.

 

Our total backlog of 3D printer orders at March 31, 2020 was kEUR 8,377, which represents ten 3D printers. This compares to a backlog of kEUR 2,792 representing three 3D printers, at December 31, 2019. 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, 2020, we had cash and cash equivalents of kEUR 3,272 and restricted cash of kEUR 1,442 and held kEUR 3,483 of investments in bond funds, thereof kEUR 2,000 restricted, which are included in current financial assets on our consolidated statements of financial position.

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.

Classifications of Liabilities as Current or Non-Current (Amendment to IAS 1)

The adoption of standards effective 01/2020 did not have a material impact on the interim financial statements as of and for the three months ended March 31, 2020.  The Company has not yet conclusively determined what impact the new standards, amendments or interpretations effective 01/2021 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, 2020 and 2019 were authorized for issue by the Management Board on August 13, 2020.


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 first quarter of 2020, full year 2019, 2018 and 2017 amounting to kEUR 2,601, kEUR 14,231, kEUR 8,764 and kEUR 8,554, respectively. Additionally, voxeljet had negative cash flows from operating activities in the first quarter of 2020, full year 2019, 2018 and 2017 of kEUR 3,904, kEUR 6,819, kEUR 7,714 and kEUR 6,830, respectively, mainly due to continuous net losses.

Due to the global outbreak of a new strain of coronavirus (“COVID-19 situation”), we have experienced and expect to continue to experience lower demand in both, our Systems and Services segment. Our clients 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. 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 our liquidity forecast, which assumes our business plan is executed appropriately and sales track as expected. We update our liquidity forecast on an ongoing basis.

As we experience difficulty in generating sufficient cash flow to meet our obligations and sustain our operations, the COVID-19 situation raises material uncertainties that may cast substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Further, material deviations from our forecasts could lead to a covenant breach in the future, which could result in an acceleration of our obligation to repay all amounts outstanding under those facilities.

Despite the ongoing losses, reduced cash flow and cash facilities, and the other negative financial conditions, management assumes that voxeljet will continue as a going concern, as the Company has been successful in drawing down kEUR 5,000 of the second tranche of the loan granted by the EIB under the Finance Contract in June 2020. This improved our liquidity significantly. Also, the financial covenants under the Finance Contract have been renegotiated to replace the Total Net Financial Debt to EBITDA ratio with a minimum cash/cash equivalents requirement. In addition, the restructuring of the voxeljet UK entity, which included consolidating 3D printing to serve all customers in Europe from the German service center has completed. This helps to reduce overall costs and will lead to improved gross profit margins by realizing economies of scale in the German service center. Further, management initiated a restructuring program at the German entity during the fourth quarter of 2019. This program included the reduction of headcount mainly in the Systems segment in order to streamline the Company’s operations and optimize efficiency. This restructuring was successfully completed at the end of June 2020 and will provide further cost reductions.

Management is also taking steps to raise further funds which may include debt or equity financing. There can be no assurance that we will be able to raise further funds on terms favorable to us, if at all.

Based on our current liquidity and capital resources in combination with our current liquidity forecasts, as well as the implemented cost reduction program, management believes that the Company has the ability to meet its financial obligations for at least the next 12 months and therefore continues as a going concern. However, the matters described above give rise to material uncertainties that may cast substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue 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 we performed, did not lead to any write downs.


Amendment and recalculation

a) Amendment of classification of short-term investments

In the first quarter of 2020, we amended our classification of short-term investments included in current financial assets. Before the amendment, those short-term investments have been classified in the category at fair value through OCI (FVOCI).

The new classification shall be the category at fair value through profit and loss (FVTPL). Accordingly, prior periods have been revised, which leads to movements between profit and loss and other comprehensive income as the changes in fair value are now presented within finance income or expense.

b) Recalculation of performance participation interest related to the Finance Contract with the EIB

In the first quarter of 2020, we recalculated the performance participation interest related to the Finance Contract with the EIB, due to a mistake in the calculation logic. Accordingly, prior periods have been revised, which leads to adjustmenets in non current financial asstes, deferred tax libilities as well as equity.

c) Impacts of amendment and recalculation

Due to the amendments and recalculations, which are described above, the opening balance as of January 1, 2019 of non current financial assets as well as deferred tax liabilities have increased by kEUR 151 and kEUR 43 respectively. The opening balance as of January 1, 2019 of accumulated deficit increased by kEUR 10, whereas the opening balance of accumulated other comprehensive gain increased by kEUR 119. As a result the loss for the period in the first quarter 2019 decreased by kEUR 172.

As of March 31, 2019 non current financial assets as well as deferred tax liabilities have increased by kEUR 244 and kEUR 69, respectively. For the period ending March 31, 2019 the balance of accumulated deficit decreased by kEUR 162, whereas the balance of accumulated other comprehensive gain increased by kEUR 13.

As a result the loss for the period in the first quarter 2019 was reduced by kEUR 172 whereas net changes in fair value of debt investments at FVOCI was reduced by kEUR 106.

As of December 31, 2019 non current financial assets as well as deferred tax liabilities have increased by kEUR 260 and kEUR 73, respectively. As of December 31, 2019 the balance of accumulated deficit decreased by kEUR 243 whereas the balance of accumulated other comprehensive gain was reduced by kEUR 56.

The Company has evaluated the effect of these amendments, both qualitatively and quantitatively, and concluded that the change did not have a material impact on, nor require amendment of, any previously filed financial statements. Affected financial statement line items for prior periods are appended with a footnote.

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, 2019, which can be found in its Annual Report on Form 20-F that was filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on May 7, 2020. These policies have been applied to all financial periods presented.

In the first quarter of 2020, we amended our classification of short-term investments included in current financial assets. Before the amendment, those short-term investments have been classified in the category at fair value through OCI (FVOCI). For further information, see Note 1.


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:

USD 9.74

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, 2020 no options are exercisable and 353,400 options are outstanding. The weighted-average contractual life of the options at March 31, 2020 amounts to 7.3 years (March 31, 2019: 8.3 years).

 

The expenses recognized in the profit and loss statement in relation to the share-based payment arrangements amounted to kEUR 167 in the three months ended March 31, 2020 (three months ended March 31, 2019: kEUR 165).

(1)Comparative figures for the year ended December 31, 2019 were revised related to the amendment of classification of short-term investments. For further information, see Note 1 of the interim consolidated financial statements.

(2)Comparative figures for the year ended December 31, 2019 were revised related to the recalculation of the performance participation interest related to the Finance Contract with the EIB. For further information, see Note 1 of the interim consolidated financial statements.

(3)Priviously presented under level 2.

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

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, credit lines and bank overdrafts approximate fair value.

The group’s policy is to recognise transfers into and transfers out of fair value hierarchy levels as at the

end of the reporting period.


In March 2020, there were no transfers of financial instruments measured at fair value between level 1 and level 2.
