MINNEAPOLIS — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 29, 2009 — Stratasys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSYS) today announced third quarter financial results.

Non-GAAP net income, which excludes certain discrete items and stock-based compensation expense, was $1.8 million, or $0.09 per share, for the third quarter of 2009 compared to $4.0 million, or $0.19 per share, for the same period last year.

Stock-based compensation expense was approximately $210,000 net of tax, or $0.01 per share, for the third quarter of 2009, and approximately $238,000 net of tax, or $0.01 per share, for the same period last year.

Cash flow from operations totaled $8.7 million for the third quarter. The company had approximately $60 million in cash and investments as of the end of September 2009.

Revenue was $72.1 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2009 versus $92.6 million reported for the same period in 2008. System shipments totaled 1,487 units for the nine-month period of 2009, versus 1,614 for the same period last year.

The company reported net income of $1.7 million for the nine-month period of 2009, or $0.09 per share, compared to net income of $11.6 million, or $0.54 per share, for the same period last year.

The nine-month period of 2009 included a discrete item related to a restructuring expense of approximately $512,000 net of tax, or $0.03 per share. This expense was associated with cost-reduction measures the company implemented during the first quarter of 2009.

The nine-month period of 2008 included a discrete item related to an impairment charge of approximately $288,000 net of tax, or $0.01 per share. This non-operating charge was an adjustment to the fair value of an auction rate security taken in 2008.

The table provides itemized detail of the impairment charge and restructuring expense, as well as the stock-based compensation expense used to determine non-GAAP financial measures.

“We are pleased with our third quarter performance when considering the unprecedented economic environment and given the seasonal weakness we generally observe during the summer period,” said Scott Crump, chairman and chief executive officer of Stratasys. “We are especially pleased with the strong cash flow from operations of $8.7 million for the third quarter, which stemmed from significant improvements in managing our working capital.

“Fortus system sales were consistent with levels in the second quarter, and we observed relatively strong sales of our higher-priced 3D printers. Although our lower-priced 3D printer, the uPrint, remained our best selling printer in the third quarter, our channel partners were often successful in up-selling to 3D printers with more features and system functionality. This trend contributed to a significant sequential improvement in our margins.

“Our resellers continue to observe a recovery in channel activity as economic conditions improve. We are gaining traction for new direct digital manufacturing applications within Fortus, and we remain on track to broaden our distribution strategy within 3D printing. While we are pleased with the sales mix that favored our higher-priced 3D printers, our top priority remains expanding the distribution of our more affordable 3D printing products. We are making progress in implementing a strategy to meet this goal.

“We believe our results over the past nine months suggest a building of positive momentum. This momentum is a combination of our successful go-to-market strategy combined with the incremental improvements in economic conditions, and prudent cost-reduction measures we implemented over the past year. Once again, we have strengthened our financial position substantially following our third quarter and now maintain almost $60 million in cash and investments.

“We believe our competitive position has improved during the economic downturn, as our financial strength has allowed us to remain committed to our long-term goals and objectives. While the near-term economic outlook remains challenging, we are encouraged by the positive signs within our channel, and are cautiously optimistic as we move into the fourth quarter. Most importantly, we are excited about new programs we hope to initiate over the coming quarters, and we remain confident in our long-term growth opportunities,” Crump concluded.
