Conference call to be held today at 9:00 a.m. EDT
SUNRISE, Fla., Aug. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nano Dimension Ltd. (Nasdaq: NNDM), an industry leading Additively Manufactured Electronics (AME) and Printed Electronics (PE) manufacturing system provider, announced today financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.
Nano Dimension reported revenues of $811,000 and $1,622,000 for the second quarter and first half of 2021, respectively, compared to revenues of $288,000 and $990,000 for the second quarter and first half of 2020, respectively. The Company ended the quarter with a cash and deposits balance of $1,396,939,000 while total operating loss for the second quarter was $19,859,000 (including approximately $10,000,000 of non-cash share-based compensation plus depreciation and amortization expenses).
“In April 2021, we purchased two entities, NanoFabrica and DeepCube. Hence, the second quarter of 2021 is the first quarter in which we consolidated the financial results of those two entities in our financial statements.” said Yael Sandler, Chief Financial Officer of Nano Dimension. “We are excited to integrate the activities of those cutting-edge groups into Nano Dimension and looking forward to demonstrating to the market additional results of our M&A efforts.” concluded Ms. Sandler.
CEO MESSAGE TO SHAREHOLDERS:
Mr. Yoav Stern, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nano Dimension, commented: “Admittedly, Nano Dimension is a different type of investment, in terms of the ability to understand its breakthroughs and progressions on a monthly and quarterly basis, especially under the understandable parameters governing public disclosures. As an example, even the fact that our revenue and gross margin (net of amortization of intangibles) for the first half of 2021 were up by 68% and 40% compared to similar periods in 2020, is not necessarily a comprehensive indication of the status of our business. The results, positive as they may be perceived, are still too small in absolute magnitude to derive any meaningful conclusions.
Our achievements and progressions in performance toward soon to be released new products, as well as advancement in material properties developments, are much more important, now, than the quarterly demonstrated revenue growth. Traders and short-term investors may be disappointed from expenses not going down, yet the right “financial” measure of our success at this point is a total contradiction to that perception: It is rather our ability to identify and hire the top scientific talents and the meaningful increases in R&D, material research and data science expense (actually, those are the most important business “investments” but defined as “expenses” as per accounting regulations). Therefore, the endeavors, if successful, will be manifested in the publicly disclosed financial statements by increased expenses, obviously to be spent smartly for increasing value, and hence a reduction of profits, and with no correlation with revenue whatsoever.
Nano Dimension is a startup business with unique, outstanding and unprecedent disruptive status, stemming out of three factors:
Our unparalleled technology and its prospects for self-learning, self-correcting high yield 3D additive manufacturing machines: It is led by one-of-a-kind capability to make the leap toward Industry 4.0 by integrating DeepCube – our patented deep/machine learning (which is at the forefront of artificial intelligence science) engine. This “Robotic Brain” is in the process of being made to run a digital network of 3D-fabrication printers which will convert material inventory into digital-cloud-based-inventory, until printed as a final 3D product – where needed, when needed, and only then.
In the same manner that paper is almost obsolete for repetitive daily printing since PDF files serve as digital-cloud-based-inventory, Nano Dimension’s printers for Additively Manufacturing Electronics (known to customers as DragonFly®) and Additively Manufacturing micro-mechanics (known to customers as Fabrica 2.0) are going to enable capital and labor intensive ecologically offensive industries to be converted to a digital network of “lights-out-manufacturing” facilities. They will fittingly be based in the Western Hemisphere, not only in Asia Pacific, and in doing so reduce the risk of failing supply chains and vulnerability resulting from trade wars and protectionist competition schemes, so painfully observed during 2020-2021.
Our $1.397 billion of financial reserves, enable us to plan for at least 5-6 years with proper qualifiable, quantifiable and measurable milestones and gateways. Typically, early-stage growth companies are forced to focus on performing on a quarterly basis, while compromising proper long-term execution for much higher returns (albeit later in the game). This phenomenon is a result of their need to constantly raise money in order to proceed. It is exactly where Nano Dimension is so well positioned compared to its competition.
Nano Dimension leadership can think, plan and efficiently execute long term business plans, for the benefit of our shareholders and customers. We do so by evading the trap of wasting expensive energy and especially time for reaching short term financial goals. We do not undermine the ability of our scientists, engineers, and business leaders to fulfil our stakeholders’ long term investment goal: Creating unparalleled added value which will drive financial value to an order of magnitude above the company and its competitors’ present valuation, even if it takes a bit longer than a few quarters.
Our unique and dedicated teams of over 130 world-class scientists and engineers, up from 70 just 8 months ago, are all shareholders of Nano Dimension and make up the multidisciplinary team in the fields of deep learning, data science, material science, process and fabrication technologies, automation, machine building and advance electromechanically robotics, algorithms for machine firmware and process control as well as CAD/CAM design support and software for design for digital manufacturing. All of them are critical for the success of our business model, added value and Nano Dimension’s valuation goals.
Nano Dimension’s vision is to transform the electronics and adjacent AM 3D printing industries into an environmentally friendly and economically efficient additive manufacturing Industry 4.0 solution: Enabling one-manufacturing-step process for the conversion of digital designs into functioning electronic devices, on demand, anytime, anywhere.
We intend to do so by building an ecofriendly and intelligent distributed network of additively manufacturing self-learning and self-improving machines, which will deliver a superior ROI to their owners, to Nano Dimension shareholders and to other stakeholders.
Within a reasonable amount of time, our three business development axes – synergetic M&A, accelerated R&D, and revolution in go-to-market efforts - are planned to converge and designed to fuel a mutually accelerated scalable growth. The companies we have acquired and those which are M&A-work-in-progress as we speak, are analyzed based on their ability to drive R&D efforts in ways not otherwise possible and amalgamate with the marketing channels of the products we develop and the market presence we need for success.
Factors A-B-C above did not exist 8 months ago. Those are drivers of an evolution that has happened so fast, that one might as well call it a “corporate revolution”, and it is still going at an accelerated pace. We are in an incredibly strong financial position and have laid the foundation for substantial future growth and value creation.
As the metaphor I have used time and time again: Similar to biotech investments in their multi-annual early development stages, initially, we measure our success by achieving our development goals. We have planned and are currently executing and hoping to surpass any present solutions for “robotic brains” in manufacturing, material technologies and 3D-printing performance. Those, in turn, are aimed to, and hopefully will, create a business-disruptive set of inflection points. While, as usual, there is no guaranty for the timing thereof, these inflection points will hopefully cause an increase of value by step functions and create exceptional time-weighted return on investment for all of us, the long-term investors,” Mr. Stern concluded.
Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results
Total revenues for the second quarter of 2021 were $811,000, compared to $811,000 in the first quarter of 2021, and $288,000 in the second quarter of 2020.
