  • Net profit from operations was $21.7 million in the third quarter of 2021, compared to a net loss from operations of $3.7 million in the third quarter of 2020. Net profit from operations was $0.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared to a net loss from operations of $14.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $11.6 million in the third quarter of 2021, compared to a loss of $2.6 million in the third quarter of 2020. Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $27.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared to a loss of $11.7 million, for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure. A reconciliation of the GAAP to non-GAAP measure and an explanation of this measure is included below.

“I am so proud of our team, who continues to execute successfully on our plans to build the future of distributed manufacturing,” said Shai Terem, President and CEO of Markforged. “Our systems sales grew 58% in the third quarter, as compared to the same period last year, which demonstrates the strong demand for our Digital Forge solution. Growth across all geographies and products delivered another strong quarter for our company, with $24 million in revenue, a 54% growth year over year. The supply chain disruptions felt by manufacturers all over the world are amplifying the need for solutions like the Digital Forge, which should translate directly into increasing market adoption and customer penetration and create opportunities for revenue growth. Our customers continue to recognize the value of our end-to-end platform and its ability to address mission critical problems at the point of need, overcome the global shortage of parts, and ensure their production line resiliency. We see great opportunities to continue helping our customers reinvent manufacturing today so they can build anything they imagine tomorrow.”

Business Highlights

The Digital Forge grew over the third quarter with two innovations in software and materials to better serve our customers in scaling and expanding their additive manufacturing operations.

Eiger Fleet, the newest addition to Markforged’s software portfolio, is a cloud-based enterprise solution designed to provide access controls, management and visibility and accelerate the adoption of additive manufacturing on a global scale. The solution’s enterprise level features centralize the management of resources, devices and data with greater control and efficiency to print parts on demand at the point of need, all over the world, with the push of a button, enabling our customers to implement fleets of Markforged mini-factories to drive the future of distributed manufacturing.

Markforged launched Onyx™ FR-A and Carbon Fiber FR-A, aerospace-ready versions of our Onyx™ FR and Carbon Fiber FR materials, this quarter. These new materials are currently undergoing qualification through the National Center for Advanced Materials Performance, with the goal of increasing Markforged’s addressable market by strategically supporting highly regulated industries like aerospace and defense. Our continuous fiber reinforcement technology enables greater adoption of additive manufacturing in these industries by providing high strength, lightweight parts.

Markforged also welcomed John Howard as Vice President of Engineering in the third quarter. John brings more than 30 years of experience in engineering and product design to Markforged’s engineering team. John has held senior positions at Amazon and Apple, among others, and his creative thinking and innovation skills will help drive the company’s product roadmap.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to our financial results determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), we believe that Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, is useful in evaluating the performance of our business.

This non-GAAP measure has limitations as an analytical tool. We do not, nor do we suggest that investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors should also note that the non-GAAP financial measures we use may not be the same non-GAAP financial measures, and may not be calculated in the same manner, as that of other companies, including other companies in our industry.

We recommend that you review the reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure provided in the financial statement tables included below in this press release, and that you not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.

Adjusted EBITDA

We define Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, as net profit (loss) and comprehensive loss less interest income, interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense, stock-based compensation expense, net change in fair value of warrant liabilities and contingent earnout liabilities, and non-recurring transaction costs. We monitor Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of our overall business performance, which enables us to analyze our past and future performance without the effects of certain non-cash items and or one-time charges. While we believe that Adjusted EBITDA is useful in evaluating our business, Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that has limitations as an analytical tool. Adjusted EBITDA can be useful in evaluating our performance by eliminating the effect of financing, capital expenditures, and non-cash expenses such as stock-based compensation, however, we may incur such expenses in the future which could impact future results.

Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are based on beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by the following words: “may,” “will,” “could,” “would,” “should,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “predict,” “project,” “potential,” “continue,” “ongoing” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology, although not all forward-looking statements contain these words. These statements involve risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from the information expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. Although Markforged believes that it has a reasonable basis for each forward-looking statement contained in this press release, Markforged cautions you that these statements are based on a combination of facts and factors currently known by it and its projections of the future, about which it cannot be certain. Forward-looking statements in this press release include, but are not limited to, future revenue and gross profit margin guidance, expected growth, the size of and opportunity to increase our addressable market, the effects of the global supply chain disruptions, our new material qualification process, and the benefits to consumers, functionality and applications of Markforged’s products. Markforged cannot assure you that the forward-looking statements in this press release will prove to be accurate. These forward looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including, among others, general economic, political and business conditions; the ability of Markforged to maintain its listing on the New York Stock Exchange; the effect of COVID-19 on Markforged’s business and financial results; the outcome of any legal proceedings against Markforged; and those factors discussed under the header “Risk Factors” in the Proxy Statement and Prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424B(3) with the SEC on June 24, 2021 and those included under the header “Risk Factors” in Markforged’s most recent periodic report on Form 10-Q and other filings with the SEC. Furthermore, if the forward-looking statements prove to be inaccurate, the inaccuracy may be material. In light of the significant uncertainties in these forward-looking statements, you should not regard these statements as a representation or warranty by us or any other person that Markforged will achieve its objectives and plans in any specified time frame, or at all. The forward-looking statements in this press release represent Markforged’s views as of the date of this press release. Markforged anticipates that subsequent events and developments will cause its views to change. However, while Markforged may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, Markforged has no current intention of doing so except to the extent required by applicable law.
