Stratasys continues to expect to achieve its fiscal year 2015 guidance, as previously provided in its February 2, 2015 press release:
- Revenue of $940 million to $960 million.
- Non-GAAP net income of $109 million to $118 million, or $2.07 to $2.24 per diluted share.
- GAAP net loss of $23 million to $10 million, or ($0.45) to ($0.20) per share.
- Tax rate of 5% to 10%.
- Capital expenditures of $160 to $200 million.
- Total operating expenses in 2015 are expected to be in the range of 46% to 47% of anticipated revenues.
- Projected Non-GAAP net income is expected to be derived disproportionately from the second half of fiscal 2015, driven by the projected timing of revenue and operating expenses.
Non-GAAP earnings guidance excludes $85 million of projected amortization of intangible assets; $32 million to $35 million of share-based compensation expense; $41 million to $43 million in non-recurring expenses related to acquisitions; and includes $30 million to $31 million in tax expenses related to Non-GAAP adjustments.
Appropriate reconciliations between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures are provided in a table at the end of this press release. The table provides itemized detail of the non-GAAP financial measures.
Stratasys reiterated the following information regarding the Company's long-term operating model:
- Annual organic revenue growth of at least 25%.
- Non-GAAP operating income as a percent of sales of 18% to 23%.
- Non-GAAP effective tax rate of 10% to 15%.
- Non-GAAP net income as a percent of sales of 16% to 21%.
