First Quarter 2018 Results

Revenues for the first quarter of 2018 increased by 11.5% to kEUR 5,052 compared to kEUR 4,530 in the first quarter of 2017.

Revenues from our Systems segment, which focuses on the development, production and sale of 3D printers, decreased 18.8% to kEUR 1,375 in the first quarter of 2018 from kEUR 1,693 in last year’s first quarter. This was mainly due to lower revenues based on the mix of printer sales during the quarter. The Company delivered two used and refurbished 3D printers in the first quarter of 2018, compared to two new printers delivered in last year’s first quarter. Systems revenues also include all revenues from consumables, spare parts and maintenance, which almost remained on the same level compared to the last year’s same period. Systems revenues represented 27.2% of total revenues in the first quarter of 2018 compared to 37.4% in last year’s first quarter.

Revenues from our Services segment, which focuses on the printing of on-demand parts for our customers, increased 29.6% to kEUR 3,677 in the first quarter of 2018 from kEUR 2,837 in the comparative period of 2017. This was due to higher revenue contributions mainly from our subsidiary voxeljet America Inc. (“voxeljet America”). The increase in revenue at our American service center resulted from a growing market penetration in the North American sales region which is accompanied by a larger customer base.

Cost of sales was kEUR 2,785 for the first quarter of 2018 compared to kEUR 2,949 for the first quarter of 2017.
