Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • Total consolidated revenue for the first quarter of 2021 increased 7.7% compared to the same period last year driven by a strong performance in our Healthcare segment. Revenue from Healthcare increased 38.7% to $72.5 million, compared to the same period last year, driven by stronger sales to the dental market. Industrial sales decreased 11.7% to $73.6 million, compared to the same period last year driven by the Cimatron Ltd. ("Cimatron") divestiture.
  • Gross profit for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 increased by 12.4%, or $7.1 million, to $64.2 million, compared to $57.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. Gross profit margin for the quarters ended March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2020 was 44.0% and 42.1%, respectively. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to product mix and improved capacity utilization.
  • Operating expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 decreased by 12.1%, or $9.2 million, to $66.2 million, compared to $75.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 decreased by 11.6%, or $6.5 million, to $49.6 million, compared to $56.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. Research and development expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 decreased by 13.7%, or $2.6 million, to $16.6 million, compared to $19.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. Our lower operating expenses reflect reduced hiring and lower travel expenses incurred in the current year, resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as savings achieved in the current year from cost restructuring activities; partially offset by higher stock-based compensation expenses.
