voxeljet AG Reports Financial Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2022

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, 2022.

Highlights – First Quarter 2022

  • Total revenues for the first quarter increased 14.3% to kEUR 4,640 from kEUR 4,060
  • Gross profit margin and gross profit increased to 34.3% from 25.6% and to kEUR 1,591 from kEUR 1,039, respectively
  • Systems revenues decreased 32.1% to kEUR 1,418 from kEUR 2,087
  • Services revenues increased 63.3% to kEUR 3,222 from kEUR 1,973
  • Reaffirm full year 2022 guidance

Dr. Ingo Ederer, Chief Executive Officer of voxeljet, commented: “We were extremely busy in our on-demand 3D printing segment with revenue up more than 60 percent year-over-year. It is great to see that this growth comes from a wide variety of applications: projects in space exploration in the US, large orders from the art & architecture sector in Germany, components for cooling of parts in electric vehicles in the UK, and so on. What we have seen in the past is that on-demand printing revenue is a leading indicator for future sales of 3D printers, so this makes us very optimistic for the rest of the year.”

First Quarter 2022 Results

Revenues for the first quarter of 2022 increased by 14.3% to kEUR 4,640 compared to kEUR 4,060 in the first quarter of 2021.

Revenues from our Systems segment, which focuses on the development, production and sale of 3D printers, decreased 32.1% to kEUR 1,418 in the first quarter of 2022 from kEUR 2,087 in last year’s first quarter. The Company delivered one new 3D printer in the first quarter of 2022, compared to two new printers 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 in line with the lower number of transactions. Systems-related revenues were almost flat. Systems revenues represented 30.6% of total revenues in the first quarter of 2022 compared to 51.4% in last year’s first quarter.

Revenues from our Services segment, which focuses on the printing of on-demand parts for our customers, increased 63.3% to kEUR 3,222 in the first quarter of 2022 from kEUR 1,973 in the comparative period of 2021. This was mainly due to significantly higher revenue contributions from the German operation as well as from our subsidiaries voxeljet America Inc. (“voxeljet America”) and voxeljet China Co. Ltd (“voxeljet China”).

Cost of sales were kEUR 3,049 for the first quarter of 2022 compared to kEUR 3,021 for the first quarter of 2021.

Gross profit and gross profit margin were kEUR 1,591 and 34.3%, respectively, in the first quarter of 2022 compared to kEUR 1,039 and 25.6%, respectively in the first quarter of 2021.

Gross profit for our Systems segment decreased to kEUR 246 in the first quarter of 2022 from kEUR 581 in the first quarter of 2021. This was mainly related to the decrease in revenues. Also gross profit margin for this segment decreased to 17.3% in the first quarter of 2022 compared to 27.8% in the first quarter of 2021 related to a less favorable product mix, especially regarding Systems-related revenues.

Gross profit for our Services segment significantly increased to kEUR 1,345 in the first quarter of 2022 compared to kEUR 458 in the first quarter of 2021. The gross profit margin for this segment also significantly increased to 41.7% in the first quarter of 2022 from 23.2% in the first quarter of 2021. Both, the increase of gross profit as well as gross profit margin was mainly related to higher contributions from each of our German, our American and our Chinese service center related to a higher utilization in line with the increases in revenues.

Selling expenses increased to kEUR 1,637 for the first quarter of 2022 compared to kEUR 1,448 in the first quarter of 2021, related to higher distribution expenses, in line with the 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 1,677 for the first quarter of 2022 compared to kEUR 1,483 in the first quarter of 2021. The increase is mainly related to higher legal advisor and regulatory fees related to our stock market listing as well as our communication to financial institutions.

Research and development (“R&D”) expenses decreased to kEUR 1,441 in the first quarter of 2022 from kEUR 1,604 in the first quarter of 2021. The decrease of kEUR 163 was mainly due to lower personnel expenses as well as lower material expenses.

Other operating expenses in the first quarter of 2022 were kEUR 158 compared to kEUR 101 in the prior year period. This was mainly related to a negative impact from changes in impairment allowance leading to an expense of kEUR 73 for the first quarter of 2022 compared to an income of kEUR 18 in the comparative period in 2021. This was partially offset by lower losses from foreign currency transactions, amounting to kEUR 59 for the first quarter of 2022 compared to kEUR 89 in the last year’s first quarter.

Other operating income was kEUR 2,204 for the first quarter of 2022 compared to kEUR 914 in the first quarter of 2021. This increase was mainly due to the reclassification of foreign currency translation reserve, which was previously recognized in other comprehensive income on consolidation of voxeljet UK accounts, to profit and loss account on deconsolidation amounting to kEUR 1,475, related to the finalization of the wind-up on February 17, 2022. This was partially offset by lower gains from foreign currency transactions amounting to kEUR 433 in the first quarter of 2022 compared to kEUR 778 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 1,118 in the first quarter of 2022 compared to an operating loss of kEUR 2,683 in the comparative period in 2021. 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 1,233 positive. In addition, gross profit significantly improved and research and development expenses slightly decreased. This was partially offset by slightly higher operating expenses from our functions administration as well as sales and marketing.

Financial result was positive kEUR 351 in the first quarter of 2022, compared to a financial result of negative kEUR 5,698 in the comparative period in 2021. This was mainly due to the finance income 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 1,316. 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, largely due to the two capital increases, which have been successfully completed in January and February 2021.

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.

Finance expense included interest from long term debt, which amounted to kEUR 567 for the first quarter of 2022, compared to kEUR 524 in the comparative period in 2021.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2022 was kEUR 753 or EUR 0.10 per share, as compared to net loss of kEUR 8,329, or EUR 1.51 per share, in the first quarter of 2021.

Business Outlook

Our revenue guidance for the second quarter of 2022 is expected to be in the range of kEUR 5,000 to kEUR 6,000.

We reaffirm our guidance for the full year ending December 31, 2022:

– Full year revenue is expected to be in the range of kEUR 25,000 to kEUR 30,000

– 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 13,250 to kEUR 13,750 and R&D expenses are projected to be between approximately kEUR 7,250 and kEUR 7,500. Depreciation and amortization expense is expected to be between kEUR 3,000 and kEUR 3,250.

– Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2022 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 4,500 to kEUR 4,750, which primarily includes ongoing investments in our subsidiaries.

Our total backlog of 3D printer orders at March 31, 2022 was kEUR 5,707, which represents nine 3D printers. This compares to a backlog of kEUR 3,880 representing seven 3D printers, at December 31, 2021. 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, 2022, we had cash and cash equivalents of kEUR 7,396, additionally we held restricted cash of kEUR 2,390 and held kEUR 10,257 of investments in bond funds, 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.

The adoption of standards effective 01/2022 did not have a material impact on the interim financial statements as of and for the three months ended March 31, 2022. The Company has not yet conclusively determined what impact the new standards, amendments or interpretations effective 01/2023 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, 2022 and 2021 were authorized for issue by the Management Board on May 19, 2022.

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, 2022, full year 2021, 2020 and 2019 amounting to kEUR 753, kEUR 10,586, kEUR 15,481 and kEUR 13,978, respectively. Additionally, voxeljet had negative cash flows from operating activities in the three months ended March 31, 2022, full year 2021, 2020 and 2019 of kEUR 1,724, kEUR 6,537, kEUR 6,598, kEUR 6,592, respectively, mainly due to continuous net losses.

The impacts from the global outbreak of COVID-19, like lower demand in both, the Systems and the Services segment due to postponements of larger investments and lower business activities from voxeljet’s clients, or travel restrictions which prohibited or hindered visits to the Company’s customers, lessened throughout fiscal year 2021 and into the first quarter of 2022. The worldwide market demand recovered to the same level compared to before the outbreak of the pandemic and the Company is able to offer installations and service visits in most regions of the world. In spite of the recovery as well as the positive trends, the continuing prevalence of the COVID-19 pandemic in certain countries as well as globally continues to pose the risk and likelihood for further lockdowns, travel restrictions and drops in demand. Further actions taken by government institutions, such as lockdowns, could result in a decrease in market demand, which could potentially result in lower cash inflows.

During 2021, in January, February and July, the Company successfully completed three registered direct offerings and sales of a total of 2,190,711 ADSs, which provided voxeljet with total gross proceeds of approximately USD 32.0 million (€ 26.6 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, voxeljet has significant financial obligations related to the repayment of tranche A including the performance participation interest from the loan received from the EIB. Tranche A will become due in December 2022 amounting to € 14.6 million reduced or increased by fair value changes of the performance participation interest. Additionally, the Company has to ensure, compliance with all covenants in the Finance Contract, including a Minimum Cash/Cash Equivalents requirement (the “Minimum Cash Covenant”).

Management is taking several steps to mitigate the situation and prepares currently for two different scenarios.

Scenario 1: Restructuring of debt with EIB and fund raising

Currently management is in discussion with the EIB in order to agree upon a drawdown of tranche B2 and tranche C of the loan amounting to € 10.0 million and therefore restructure the debt. After several promising meetings with representatives of EIB, management feels confident that a drawdown of tranche B2 as well as tranche C would be feasible in the next months. In addition, management is taking further steps to raise additional 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 steps already initiated by management include several meetings with potential new as well as existing investors and banks, which have taken place in early April 2022 in New York City. The overall feedback was positive and different parties indicated that there is serious interest for participations in further capital increases from both, new as well as existing investors. Management assesses scenario 1 as reasonably certain if triggered by the Company and believes that an execution would ensure that voxeljet will continue as a going concern.

Scenario 2: Sale and leaseback of voxeljet AG’s properties located in Germany and settlement of loan contract with EIB

Management initiated steps in order to sell the properties of voxeljet AG in Germany to an investor and lease those back by negotiating for a long term lease contract. In this course, the Company has already identified several investors who have serious interest. Visits of the premises at voxeljet’s headquarters have already taken place in the first quarter of 2022 and management actually received several letters of intent from different parties. voxeljet has assessed the different offers and awarded exclusivity period to one of the investors in order to start the due diligence. Due to the positive development of the market for real estate in Germany during the last years, management would expect a favorable selling price of the properties. At the same time, the Company would fully settle the loan contract with EIB including the repayment of tranche A and B1, including all interests. Representatives of EIB already indicated that they would not deny such a settlement. Management is of the opinion that scenario 2 is reasonably certain if triggered by the Company and believes that an execution of scenario 2 would also ensure that voxeljet will continue as a going concern.

The ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine raises further risks and uncertainties. The heightened use of trade restrictions and sanctions, including tariffs or prohibitions on technology transfers to achieve diplomatic ends could impact voxeljet’s ability to conduct its business as planned. A spill-over of the conflict to neighboring countries, the European Union or NATO members, could result into further adverse impacts on the Company’s business, like a drop in market demand, price increases for raw materials and energy or delays in the global supply chain.

These events and conditions described above raise material uncertainties that may cast significant doubt upon voxeljet’s ability to continue as a going concern. Despite the ongoing losses, reduced cash flow and cash facilities as well as the significant financial obligations becoming due, management assumes that voxeljet will continue as a going concern. However, while management assumes of continuing as a going concern, the going concern is dependent upon management and the Company being successful in:

– achievement of budgeted sales, and

– successful negotiations with the EIB over the drawdown of tranche B2 and tranche C under the Finance Contract, and successful fund raising in form of equity or debt, or

– successful agreement on a sale and leaseback transaction with an investor regarding voxeljet AG’s properties in Germany in combination with a early settlement of the loans granted by the EIB including all interests

Those assumptions and both scenarios are included in the Company’s current liquidity forecasts, and management believes that the Company has the ability to meet its financial obligations for at least the next 12 months from the authorization for issuance of these condensed consolidated interim financial statements as of and for the three months ended March 31, 2022 by the Management Board on May 19, 2022 and therefore continues as a going concern.

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, 2021, 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 31, 2022. 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 of the grant date. As of March 31, 2022 265,050 options are exercisable and 353,400 options are outstanding. The weighted-average contractual life of the options at March 31, 2022 amounts to 5.3 years (March 31, 2021: 6.3 years).

The expenses recognized in the profit and loss statement in relation to the share-based payment arrangements amounted to kEUR 43 in the three months ended March 31, 2022 (three months ended March 31, 2021: kEUR 166).

The valuation techniques used to determine the fair value of 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 equity securities is determined by multiplying their share price and the number of shares held.

The fair values of the derivative financial instruments that are not traded in an active market are 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 each quarter. As of March 31, 2022, there were no transfers of financial instruments measured at fair value between level 1, level 2 and level 3.

As of March 31, 2022, the Company was in compliance with all covenants related to the loan granted by the EIB.

11. Commitments, contingent assets and liabilities

In connection with the enforcement of voxeljet’s intellectual property rights, the acquisition of third‑party intellectual property rights, or disputes related to the validity or alleged infringement of the Company’s or a third party’s intellectual property rights, including patent rights, voxeljet has been and may in the future be subject or party to claims, negotiations or complex, protracted litigation.

In March 2018, ExOne GmbH, a subsidiary of The ExOne Company, notified voxeljet of its intent not to pay its annual license fees under an existing intellectual property-related agreement and asserted its rights to claim damages pursuant to an alleged material breach of the agreement. At this time, the Company cannot reasonably estimate a contingency, if any, related to this matter. On November 12, 2021, The ExOne Company and its affiliates were acquired by DESKTOP METAL, INC.

voxeljet AG issued letters of support to voxeljet’s subsidiaries voxeljet China and voxeljet America to provide financial support to enable the subsidiaries to meet their obligation or liabilities as and when they fall due. The guarantee is irrecoverable for at least 12 months from the date of financial statements for the financial year ended December 31, 2021, are signed. Management assessed that it is unlikely that the subsidiaries would exercise this letter.

Transactions with Franz Industriebeteiligungen AG comprise the rental of office space in Augsburg, Germany. Rental expenses amounted to kEUR 1, in each, first quarter 2022 and first quarter 2021.

Further, voxeljet acquired goods amounting to kEUR 0 and kEUR 0 in the first quarter of 2022 and 2021, respectively from ‘Schlosserei und Metallbau Ederer’, which is owned by the brother of Dr. Ingo Ederer, the Chief Executive Officer of voxeljet.

Moreover, voxeljet received orders amounting to kEUR 99 and kEUR 5 in the first quarter of 2022 and 2021, respectively from Suzhou Meimai Fast Manufacturing Technology Co., Ltd., which was our minority shareholder for voxeljet China until September 1, 2021. On this date, Meimai transferred half of its equity interest in voxeljet China, or 15% of voxeljet China’s equity, to its shareholder MK Holding GmbH and the remaining half of its equity interest, or 15% of voxeljet China’s equity to its shareholder Mr. Jin Tianshi, the managing director of voxeljet China.

In addition, voxeljet employed Michele Neuber as an intern, the son of Volker Neuber, who has been a member of voxeljet’s supervisory board since July 2020. He received a salary of kEUR 1 and kEUR 1 in the first quarter of 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Moreover, voxeljet sold a used car in the first quarter of 2021 to Susanne Ederer-Pausewang amounting to kEUR 27, who is the wife of Dr. Ingo Ederer, the Chief Executive Officer of voxeljet.

In addition, voxeljet employed Lisa Franz, who is the daughter of Rudolf Franz, the Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer of voxeljet, as an intern between October 2021 and February 2022. She received a salary of kEUR 1 in the first quarter of 2022.
