NORTH HUNTINGDON, PA, March 14, 2019 – The ExOne Company (Nasdaq: XONE) (“ExOne” or the “Company”), a global provider of three-dimensional (“3D”) printing machines and 3D printed and other products, materials and services to industrial customers, reported financial results today for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2018.

S. Kent Rockwell, ExOne’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are pleased to have attained our 2018 goal for net income in the second half of the year, achieving $0.11 of earnings per share in the second half. The results of our 2018 global cost realignment initiative announced in June demonstrate production efficiency and operating leverage opportunity. With our focus on profitability, cash flow, and long-term growth, we are especially satisfied with these results despite some customer delays causing lower than expected revenue. Revenue predictability is dependent upon timing of customer actions which, at times, can be difficult for us to forecast with accuracy. However, our customer pipeline remains robust and we have the production capacity to satisfy customer requirements.”

Reflecting on results for the full year of 2018, Mr. Rockwell added:
  • We reached record revenue of nearly $65 million. That represents about 12% growth over 2017 and a three-year compound annual growth rate of 17% 
  •   Machine revenue was up 21%. Non-machine revenue marginally improved, by 2%, impacted by our production service center changes.
  • We generated nearly $21 million of gross profit, 32.4% of sales. That represents about 45% growth over 2017 and a three-year compound annual growth rate of 36%.
  • Focusing on productivity and profitability, we implemented our 2018 global cost realignment initiative, reaching approximately $7 million of net annualized run rate cost reductions.
  • We invested in further advancement of the capabilities of our 3D printing technology, expandingour machine and material offerings. In conjunction with the Formnext additive manufacturing
    trade fair in Frankfurt, Germany in November, we announced our newest fine powder direct 3D printer system, the X1 25PRO™.
