  Additional capital brings new institutional investors and enables Company to further invest in business to expand unit sales and revenue growth.

 

Management Commentary

 

“The first quarter of 2021 was marked by continued adoption of Sigma Labs industry standard IPQA technology that was validated by our improved financial performance with solid PrintRite3D unit sales, a strengthened balance sheet showing strong institutional investor interest, and macro tailwinds signaling a return to growth in the coming months for the 3D metal printing industry,” said Mark K. Ruport, President and CEO of Sigma Labs. “We are increasingly seeing upticks of activity in the 3D metal printing market, resulting in several new contracts for initial systems. We believe that each new customer will open up opportunities for additional systems as our customers expand and accelerate their Additive Manufacturing initiatives.

 

“Recently we announced a $9.7 million registered direct offering priced at-the-market under Nasdaq rules to significantly strengthen our balance sheet and provide us with sufficient working capital to allow us to meet the growth demands of the market. Combined with our previous $5.1 million public offering which included the full exercise of the underwriter’s over-allotment option, we now have over $16.8 million in cash to support growth, direct sales and marketing. This achievement represents a significant milestone for the company and will put us in the strongest financial position in the history of Sigma Labs.

 

 
 

 

 

“For the remainder of the year, we are continuing along our roadmap to focus on new markets and opportunities, including aerospace, space exploration and defense. We are leveraging our sales team to expand sales through our current partnerships, and through direct sales to global end-user manufacturers, universities and R&D organizations. Additionally, we will continue to seek out new and expanded strategic partnerships with 3D printer OEMs, software companies, and integrators.

 

“The outlook for the Additive Manufacturing industry in 2021 appears robust, with increasing demand predicted by Statista and others as 3D metal printing goes from prototyping to full industrialization. We believe we are poised to set the standard for quality assurance and capture a significant share of the market. We look forward to sharing more of our accomplishments and contract wins as the year progresses,” concluded Ruport.

 

First Quarter 2021 Financial Results

 

Revenue for the first quarter of 2021 totaled $458,140. This compares to revenues of $221,730 for the first quarter of 2020. The increase in revenue was primarily due to increased PrintRite3D® unit sales in the first quarter of 2021.

 

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2021 was $329,809, which resulted in a gross margin of 72% as compared to negative $22,973 in the first quarter of 2020.

 

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2021 were $1.8 million as compared to total operating expenses of $1.6 million for the same period in 2020.

 

Cash used in operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021 totaled $1.2 million compared to $1.5 million in the first quarter of 2020, a decrease of $0.3 million.

 

Net loss for the first quarter of 2021 was $0.7 million, or $(0.09) per share, as compared to a net loss of $1.6 million, or $(1.30) per share, in the first quarter of 2020.

 

Cash totaled $16.8 million at March 31, 2021, as compared to $3.7 million at December 31, 2020. The increase in cash during the period was a result of a $9.7 million registered direct offering of common stock and short-term warrants and a public offering of shares of common stock with gross proceeds of approximately $5.1 million. In addition, warrant exercises during the first quarter of 2021 have contributed an additional $1.1 million in cash proceeds.
