Company generates 36% organic revenue growth, and 62% total revenue growth, in the fourth quarter over the fourth quarter of last year, driven by strong demand across all product lines
MakerBot contributes $24.9 million in revenue during the fourth quarter
Strong revenue growth combined with margin expansion drives record quarterly earnings
MINNEAPOLIS & REHOVOT, Israel — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 3, 2014 — Stratasys Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS) today announced record financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2013.
Driven by the realization of Stratasys-Objet merger synergies and the rapidly expanding market for 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions, the company observed strong demand across all product lines during the fourth quarter.
Hardware and consumable revenue in the fourth quarter, excluding the revenue contribution made by MakerBot, grew by 38% and 33%, respectively, over the pro forma results for the same quarter last year. Total non-GAAP revenue (excluding MakerBot’s contribution) increased by 36% for the fourth quarter over last year’s pro forma revenue.
MakerBot made a significant contribution of $24.9 million to fourth quarter revenue, as its highly affordable and functional desktop 3D printers continued strong positive sales momentum within the rapidly growing desktop category.
The company generated record non-GAAP profits in the fourth quarter, as strong sales of higher margin products contributed to a non-GAAP gross margin of 60.2% for the period compared to 57.8% for the pro forma period last year; and non-GAAP operating margin grew to 20.2% compared to 19.1% on a pro forma basis for the same period last year.
