“In 2021 we diligently executed on our strategic plan while completing the milestone of becoming a publicly traded company. The completion of our business combination facilitated accelerating our investment opportunities to drive long-term growth by enabling us to scale across materials, markets, technologies, and broaden the rollout of additional phases of our offering of software as a service,” said Greg Kress, Shapeways’ Chief Executive Officer. “We appreciate it will take time to realize progress on each of our key growth business development initiatives, which include the introduction of our proprietary software Otto™, growing our customer base, and expanding our additive manufacturing offerings through the purchase of additional Desktop Metal machines.”

Mr. Kress continued, “Shapeways is well positioned to capture and expand market share in 2022 as these investments continue to ramp and contribute to our long-term growth. We entered the new year with a solid business pipeline, and believe that we are well positioned to continue providing world class additive printing solutions through automation, innovation and digitization. We remain committed to executing on our long-term strategic growth plan, which we believe will allow us to expand market share and accelerate growth in the coming quarters.”

Business Updates

The Company continued the expansion of its additive manufacturing offering by launching new technologies and materials. In the fourth quarter of 2021 and into the first quarter of 2022, the Company began deployment of a broad portfolio of Desktop Metal solutions to expand its global manufacturing footprint across metals, elastomers, polymers, composites, and digital casting applications. The Company anticipates continuing to deploy additional Desktop Metal hardware as the year progresses.

In the fourth quarter of 2021, the Company publicly launched the first phase of its Software-as-a-Service (“SaaS”) offering under the brand name Otto™ to gain feedback on product market fit, pricing and optimal use cases. Otto is a purpose-built SaaS platform which provides traditional manufacturers with a simpler, faster and more flexible path to 3D printing for industrial-grade production.

The Company further built out its go-to-market strategy by expanding its sales team and broadening its business development efforts to middle market and enterprise customers.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of December 31, 2021, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $79.7 million.

Outlook

The Company is continuing to make investments to expand its additive manufacturing platform and increase its business development activities throughout the year. The investments are expected to result in a ramp in sales in the back half of the year and are anticipated to pressure margins in the coming year.

For the first quarter of 2022, the Company anticipates revenue to be in the range of $7.3 million to $7.4 million.

Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements included in this press release are not historical facts and are forward-looking statements for purposes of the safe harbor provisions under the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements generally are accompanied by words such as “believe,” “may,” “will,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “expect,” “should,” “would,” “plan,” “predict,” “potential,” “seem,” “seek,” “future,” “outlook,” and similar expressions that predict or indicate future events or trends or that are not statements of historical matters. All statements, other than statements of present or historical fact included in this press release, regarding the Company’s strategy, future operations, outlook, and prospects are forward-looking statements. These statements are based on various assumptions, whether or not identified in this press release, and on the current expectations of management of the Company and are not predictions of actual performance. These forward-looking statements are provided for illustrative purposes only and are not intended to serve as, and must not be relied on as, a guarantee, an assurance, a prediction, or a definitive statement of fact or probability. Actual events and circumstances are difficult or impossible to predict and will differ from assumptions. Many actual events and circumstances are beyond the control of the Company. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including changes in domestic and foreign business, market, financial, political, and legal conditions; failure to realize the anticipated benefits of the business combination or any future acquisitions; the risk that Shapeways has a history of losses and the Company may not achieve or maintain profitability in the future; the risk that the Company faces significant competition and expects to face increasing competition in many aspects of its business, which could cause the Company’s operating results to suffer; the risk that the digital manufacturing industry is a relatively new and emerging market and it is uncertain whether it will gain widespread acceptance; the risk that the Company’s new and existing solutions and software do not achieve sufficient market acceptance; the loss of key personnel; the inability to timely and effectively scale our platform; and those factors discussed in Shapeways’ most recent Form 10-K, under the heading “Risk Factors,” and other documents Shapeways has filed, or will file, with the SEC. If any of these risks materialize or our assumptions prove incorrect, actual results could differ materially from the results implied by these forward-looking statements. There may be additional risks that the Company does not presently know, or that the Company currently believes are immaterial, that could also cause actual results to differ from those contained in the forward-looking statements. In addition, forward-looking statements reflect the Company’s expectations, plans, or forecasts of future events and views as of the date of this press release. The Company anticipates that subsequent events and developments will cause its assessments to change. However, while the Company may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, it specifically disclaims any obligation to do so. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing the Company’s assessments of any date subsequent to the date of this press release. Accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed upon the forward-looking statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to Shapeways’ results determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”), Shapeways believes that Adjusted EBITDA, a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure, is useful in evaluating our operational performance. Shapeways uses this non-U.S. GAAP financial information to evaluate our ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. Shapeways believes that this non-U.S. GAAP financial information, when taken collectively, may be helpful to investors in assessing our operating performance.

Shapeways defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) excluding debt forgiveness, interest expense, net of interest income, income tax benefit, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, change in fair value of warrant liabilities, and other non-operating gains and losses.

Shapeways believes that the use of Adjusted EBITDA provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends because it eliminates the effect of financing and capital expenditures and provides investors with a means to compare its financial measures with those of comparable companies, which may present similar non-U.S. GAAP financial measures to investors. However, you should be aware that when evaluating Adjusted EBITDA Shapeways may incur future expenses similar to those excluded when calculating these measures. In addition, Shapeways’ presentation of these measures should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items.

Because of these limitations, Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for performance measures calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Shapeways compensates for these limitations by relying primarily on our U.S. GAAP results and using Adjusted EBITDA on a supplemental basis. You should review the reconciliation of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA below and not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate Shapeways’ business.
