3D Systems Earns 40 Cents Per Share on Record Fourth Quarter Revenue

ROCK HILL, S.C., Feb. 17, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 3D Systems Corporation (Nasdaq:TDSC) announced today that it earned 40 cents per share, fully diluted, for the fourth quarter of 2010 on a 42% revenue increase and a 400 basis point gross profit margin expansion compared to the fourth quarter of 2009. The company's quarterly and annual earnings per share benefitted by 5 cents per share from releasing a portion of its valuation allowance on deferred tax assets.

The company earned 83 cents per share, fully diluted, for the full year 2010 and generated $31.8 million of cash from operations. After using $20.8 million to fund strategic investing activities, the company ended 2010 with $37.3 million of available cash compared to $24.9 million at December 31, 2009.

"Our record fourth quarter and full year results validate our long term operating model," said Abe Reichental, 3D Systems' President and Chief Executive Officer.

The table below summarizes the company's key financial results.

The company delivered revenue growth from all its revenue categories for the fourth quarter and full year 2010. Strong demand for its personal, professional and production 3D printers led revenue growth and accounted for a $7.8 million increase compared to the 2009 period and $6.2 million sequentially. Production printers' revenue grew 43% compared to the 2009 quarter and 46% sequentially and personal and professional printers' revenue grew 103% over the 2009 quarter and 37% sequentially. 

Print materials' revenue increased $1.8 million and $8.1 million over the fourth quarter and full year of 2009.  Revenue from service activities, including 3Dproparts™, grew to $14.3 million for the quarter. 3Dproparts™ services accounted for $6.8 million of service revenue for the fourth quarter and $18.3 million for the full year, of which $10.3 million was from businesses acquired in 2010.

Gross profit margin for the quarter and year expanded to 48% and 46% compared to 44% for each of the 2009 periods, reflecting improved overhead absorption and higher production and professional printers' margin contribution. 

"We are very pleased with our record results and believe that our focus on democratizing access and accelerating adoption of affordable 3D content-to-print solutions is providing significant value to our customers and stockholders," concluded Reichental.
