In its filing with the SEC, the company says the funds will be used to “expedite” growth and “further advance” its technologies.
Nano Dimension (NASDAQ:NNDM;TASE:NNDM) announced on Wednesday (November 21) through a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that it intends to raise US$28.75 million for increasing production and scaling up its sales.
The company is hoping to raise the funds through a public offering with the money being used to speed up growth and continue advancing its technologies.
In the filing, Nano Dimension stated that its primary target market is the US while it is also experiencing growth in Asia Pacific. The company expects that trend to increase in 2019.
In terms of sales and marketing, the company plans to advance its commercialization efforts while adding more resources to its US and Hong Kong headquarters, which could include increase in sales manpower.
Earlier in the month, the company announced its third quarter results where it reported higher revenues as compared to the third quarter of 2017 which it credited to the higher sale of its DragonPro Fly systems. The company reported revenues of US$1.6 million for the third quarter of 2018 as compared to US$142,000 in the third quarter of 2017.
“Over the third quarter we sold ten DragonFly Pro systems and we are particularly pleased bythepositive traction that we are enjoying within the U.S. defense industry, bolstered by our status as a certified Department of Defense Logistics Agency vendor,” Amit Dror, CEO of Nano Dimension, said in the earnings release.
Additionally, in the first week of November, the company showcased the capabilities of a 3D printed radio frequency circuit produced through its DragonFly 3D printer.
“The use of in-house 3D printed electronics to make antennas is a breakthrough, in terms of the time and cost of prototyping and proofs-of-concept,” Dror said in the release.
Meanwhile, the company’s SEC filing said that it would increase the amount of applications and use cases of its products by collaborating more with its customers.
Crucially, the company said that certain amount of the funds it raises would be set aside for working capital, potential licensing of additional intellectual property and a next generation product.
