Financial Guidance:
Stratasys today provided the following information regarding the company's guidance for projected revenue and net income for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2017:

  • Revenue guidance of $645 to $680 million.
  • Non-GAAP net income of $10 to $20 million, or $0.19 to $0.37 per diluted share.
  • GAAP net loss of $53 to $39 million, or a ($1.00) to ($0.73) per diluted share.

Stratasys provided the following additional guidelines regarding the company's projected performance and strategic plans for 2017:

  • Non-GAAP operating margins of 3% to 5%.
  • Capital expenditures are projected at $40 to $50 million.

Given the expected ongoing negative impact of not recording a tax benefit on U.S. tax losses on the Company non-GAAP net income, the Company believes that the rate of growth in its non-GAAP operating income will be the best measure of performance.

Non-GAAP earnings guidance excludes $34 million of projected amortization of intangible assets; $18 to $20 million of share-based compensation expense; $2 to $3 million in merger and acquisition related expense; and $8 to $10 million in reorganization and other related costs; and includes $3 to $4 million in tax expenses related to non-GAAP adjustments.

"As we move into 2017, we continue to invest in achieving our long-term goals. As we extend our reach into use-case centric applications, we intend to continue to shift resources to build out our capabilities around high-value added applications. We believe our combined efforts can lead to improved quality of revenue, and enable long-term, strong and sustainable growth. We are excited about the potential market opportunity that lies ahead," Levin concluded.

These forward-looking statements are based on current information that is, by its nature, subject to rapid and even abrupt change. Due to risks and uncertainties associated with Stratasys' business, actual results could differ materially from those projected or implied by these forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: any failure to efficiently and successfully integrate the operations of Stratasys, Inc. and various entities that it has acquired, including MakerBot, Solid Concepts, Harvest and GrabCAD, or to successfully establish and execute effective post-acquisition integration plans; changes in the overall global economic environment; the impact of competition and new technologies; changes in the general market, political and economic conditions in the countries in which we operate; any underestimates in projected capital expenditures and liquidity; changes in our strategy; changes in applicable government regulations and approvals; changes in customers' budgeting priorities; lower than expected demand for our products and services; reduction in our profitability due to shifting in our product mix into lower margin products or our shifting in our revenues mix significantly towards our AM services business; costs and potential liability relating to litigation and regulatory proceedings; and those factors referred to in Item 3.D "Key Information - Risk Factors", Item 4, "Information on the Company", and Item 5, "Operating and Financial Review and Prospects" in our 2015 Annual Report, together with the 2016 Annual Report that we will file soon, as well as in the 2016 Annual Report generally.

Use of non-GAAP financial measures

The non-GAAP data included herein, which excludes certain items as described below, are non-GAAP financial measures. Our management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful information for investors and shareholders of our company in gauging our results of operations (x) on an ongoing basis after excluding merger and acquisition related expense and reorganization-related charges, and (y) excluding non-cash items such as stock-based compensation expenses, acquired intangible assets amortization, impairment of goodwill and other long-lived assets, changes in fair value of obligations in connection with acquisitions and the corresponding tax effect of those items. We also exclude non-recurring changes of non-cash valuation allowance on deferred tax assets, as well as, non-recurring significant tax charges or benefits that relate to prior periods which we do not believe are reflective of ongoing business and operating results. These non-GAAP adjustments either do not reflect actual cash outlays that impact our liquidity and our financial condition or have a non-recurring impact on the statement of operations, as assessed by management. These non-GAAP financial measures are presented to permit investors to more fully understand how management assesses our performance for internal planning and forecasting purposes. The limitations of using these non-GAAP financial measures as performance measures are that they provide a view of our results of operations without including all items indicated above during a period, which may not provide a comparable view of our performance to other companies in our industry. Investors and other readers should consider non-GAAP measures only as supplements to, not as substitutes for or as superior measures to, the measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliation between results on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis is provided in a table below.
