Management Discussion
  • For the year ended December 31, 2018, revenues decreased by approximately $61 million compared with the same period in 2017.  Volume and pricing declines within Print Systems ($60 million) and Enterprise and Inkjet Systems ($10 million) and volume declines in Consumer and Film ($11 million) were offset by favorable foreign currency ($19 million).  See segment discussions for additional details.
  • Gross profit for 2018 decreased by approximately $30 million. The decrease reflected volume and pricing declines within Print Systems ($14 million) and Enterprise Inkjet Systems ($10 million), and higher aluminum costs within Print Systems ($23 million), partially offset by reduced inventory write-offs due to restructuring ($7 million), favorable costs (excluding the impact of aluminum costs) in Print Systems ($8 million) and higher volumes and lower costs in Advanced Materials and 3D Printing Technology ($7 million).  See segment discussions for additional details.
  • Consolidated SG&A for 2018 decreased $14 million primarily due to lower investment in selling and marketing activities ($15 million), driven by a lower investment in Print Systems, Enterprise Inkjet Systems and Consumer and Film ($16 million), a reduction in workers’ compensation reserves ($2 million), lower stock compensation expense and foreign currency (each $3 million) partially offset by higher costs associated with strategic initiatives such as asset sales and debt restructuring ($9 million).
