Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • Current year revenue was adversely impacted by COVID-19, as many of our customers were shutdown or on a significantly reduced level of activity for a portion of the year. Excluding impacts due to the pandemic, due to the relatively high price of certain 3D printers and a corresponding lengthy selling cycle as well as relatively low unit volume of the higher priced printers in any particular period, a shift in the timing and concentration of orders and shipments from one period to another can affect reported revenue in any given period.
  • In addition to changes in sales volumes, there are two other primary drivers of changes in revenue from one period to another: (1) the combined effect of changes in product mix and average selling prices and (2) the impact of fluctuations in foreign currencies. As used in this Management’s Discussion and Analysis, the price and mix effects relate to changes in revenue that are not able to be specifically related to changes in unit volume.
  • We earn revenue from the sale of products and services. The products category includes 3D printers and corresponding materials, healthcare simulators and digitizers, software licenses, 3D scanners and haptic devices. The majority of materials used in our 3D printers are proprietary. The services category includes maintenance contracts and services on 3D printers and simulators, software maintenance, on demand solutions and healthcare services.
