“We are pleased with our results this quarter, reflecting continued strength in our high-end systems orders, utilization rates and our parts services business,” said Elchanan (Elan) Jaglom, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Stratasys. “The level of engagement we are experiencing with customers in our key verticals is encouraging, as we highlighted at the recent International Manufacturing Technology Show. And we are excited about the innovation we plan to bring to market to drive incremental, long-term opportunities, as we continue to invest in new products and materials across our portfolio of FDM and PolyJet technologies, our new metal additive manufacturing platform, and advanced composite materials.”
Stratasys today updated the following information regarding the Company’s guidance for projected revenue and net income for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2018:
Revenue guidance of $670 to $680 million, compared to previous guidance of $670 to $700 million.
GAAP net loss of $10 to $2 million, or ($0.19) to ($0.04) per diluted share, compared to previous guidance of net loss of $41 to $25 million, or ($0.75) to ($0.46) per diluted share.
Non-GAAP net income of $27 to $30 million, or $0.50 to $0.55 per diluted share, compared to previous guidance of net income of $16 to $27 million, or $0.30 to $0.50 per diluted share.
Non-GAAP operating margins are unchanged at 4.5% to 6%.
Stratasys also updated the following guidance regarding the Company’s projected performance and strategic plans for 2018:
Capital expenditures are projected at $25 to $35 million, compared to previous projection of $30 to $40 million.
The Company’s guidance reflects increased investments in R&D, tools, materials, and additional resources aimed at expanding addressable markets by accelerating development efforts for the new metal additive manufacturing platform, further advancements based on its FDM and PolyJet technologies, and specific go-to-market initiatives in order to deepen customer engagement.
Given the expected ongoing negative impact of not recording a tax benefit on U.S. tax losses on the Company’s non-GAAP net income, the Company believes that the rate of growth in its non-GAAP operating income is the best measure of its performance.
Non-GAAP earnings guidance excludes $34 million of projected amortization of intangible assets; $16 to $17 million of share-based compensation expense; net gains from divestitures of $23 to $22 and reorganization related expense of $6 to $7 million; and includes ($1) to $1 million in tax expenses (income) related to non-GAAP adjustments.
“We ended the quarter with positive cash generation and expense controls that drove efficiencies and maintained operational discipline as we continue to invest in research and development to expand our portfolio,” continued Jaglom. “We believe we have the best go-to-market execution strategy in the industry and are focused on delivering new, innovative solutions in the coming years that will drive strong, profitable top and bottom-line growth.”

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: the degree of market acceptance of our 3D printers, high-performance systems and consumables, and the software and technology included in those systems; potential declines in the demand for, or the prices of, our products and services, or volume of our sales, due to decreased demand either for them specifically or in the 3D printing market generally; potential further charges against earnings that we could be required to take due to impairment of additional goodwill or other intangible assets; potential shifts in our product mix to lower-margin products or in our revenues mix towards our AM services business; any failure to adequately adapt our infrastructure and properly integrate the internal and external sources of our growth to generate intended benefits (including from the companies that we recently acquired); the impact of competition and new technologies; risks related to our relationships with our suppliers, resellers and independent sales agents, and our operations at our manufacturing sites; risks related to the international scope of our operations and regulatory compliance (including reporting, environmental, anti-corruption and other regulatory compliance) related to that scope of operations; risks related to the security of our information systems (including risks related to potential cyber-attacks); changes in the overall global economic environment or in political and economic conditions in the countries in which we operate; changes in our strategy; costs and potential liability relating to litigation and regulatory proceedings; and those additional factors referred to in Item 3.D “Key Information - Risk Factors”, Item 4, “Information on the Company”, Item 5, “Operating and Financial Review and Prospects,” and all other parts of our Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2017 (the “2017 Annual Report”), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on February 28th, 2018. Readers are urged to carefully review and consider the various disclosures made throughout our 2017 Annual Report, and the Report on Form 6-K that attaches Stratasys’ unaudited, condensed consolidated financial statements as of, and for the quarter and nine months ended, September 30, 2018, and its review of its results of operations and financial condition for those periods, which has been furnished to the SEC on or about the date hereof, and our other reports filed with or furnished to the SEC, which are designed to advise interested parties of the risks and factors that may affect our business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects.

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 mergers, acquisitions and divestments related expense or gains and reorganization-related charges or gains, and (y) excluding non-cash items such as stock-based compensation expenses, acquired intangible assets amortization, including intangible assets amortization related to equity method investments, impairment of long-lived assets, changes in fair value of obligations in connection with acquisitions and the corresponding tax effect of those items. 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.
