"These innovations demonstrate our potential to meet the needs of customers by leveraging our core assets within key vertical markets. We believe these types of opportunities remain significant across multiple industries, and we are committed to seeking their further development."

Financial Guidance:

Stratasys provided updated guidance regarding the Company's prospective revenue and net income (loss) for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2016:

  • Revenue guidance of $662 to $673 million.
  • GAAP net loss of $76 to $71 million, or ($1.44) to ($1.35) per diluted share.
  • Non-GAAP net income of $7 to $11 million, or $0.13 to $0.21 per diluted share.

Stratasys provided the following additional information regarding the Company's prospective performance and strategic plans for fiscal 2016:

  • Non-GAAP gross margin in a range of 54% to 55%.
  • Non-GAAP operating margin of 3% to 4%.
  • Non-GAAP Tax expense of $15 to $17 million, which includes the negative impact of the planned accounting treatment for tax valuation allowance.
  • Capital expenditures are projected at $50 to $60 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 $59.0 million of projected amortization of intangible assets; $21.0 million of share-based compensation expense; $10.0 to $11.0 million in merger and acquisition related expense; and $7.0 to $8.0 million in reorganization and other related costs; and includes $15.0 million in tax expenses related to non-GAAP adjustments.

"We were pleased to recognize additional improvements to our operational efficiency during the period which was reflected in a reduction in non-GAAP operating expenses and increase in our non-GAAP gross margin compared to the same period last year," continued Levin. "We will continue to seek further improvements in our cost structure as we strive to align our operations even more closely with our anticipated results."

These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: any failure to efficiently and successfully integrate the operations of Stratasys, Inc. and Objet Ltd. after their merger as well as MakerBot, Solid Concepts, Harvest and GrabCAD after their acquisition 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 Stratasys operates; any underestimates in projected capital expenditures and liquidity; changes in Stratasys' strategy; changes in applicable government regulations and approvals; changes in customers' budgeting priorities; lower than expected demand for Stratasys' products and services; reduction in Stratasys' profitability due to shifting in its product mix into lower margin products or shifting in its revenues mix significantly towards its 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 Stratasys' Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2015, as well as in such Annual Report generally.

Use of non-GAAP financial measures

The non-GAAP data included herein, which exclude certain items as described herein, 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, as well as, non-recurring changes of non-cash valuation allowance on deferred tax assets. 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 income statement, 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 U.S. GAAP. Reconciliation between results on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis is provided in a table below.
