Management to Host Conference Call Today at 4:30 p.m. ET

SANTA FE, NM / ACCESSWIRE / May 14, 2020 / Sigma Labs, Inc. (NASDAQ:SGLB) ("Sigma Labs"), a leading developer of quality assurance software for the additive manufacturing industry, reported its financial and operational results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

Key First Quarter 2020 and Subsequent Operational Highlights

  • Announced several key contract wins to further validate the company's technology, including:
    • Contract to implement PrintRite3D in collaboration with university research centers at the Northwestern University, Northwestern Initiative on Manufacturing Science and Innovation (NIMSI) and Center for Hierarchical Materials Design (CHiMaD).
    • Contract with the Mississippi State University Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems (CAVS), a world-class interdisciplinary research center that uses state-of-the-art technology to address engineering challenges facing U.S. mobility industries.
  • Awarded two U.S. Patents for PrinRite3D® quality assurance software:
    • U.S. Application No.: 16/234,333 Titled: Systems and Methods for Additive Manufacturing Operations; and
    • U.S. Application No.: 16/282,004 Titled: Systems and Methods for Measuring Radiated Thermal Energy During an Additive Manufacturing Operation.
  • Selected Excel3D Advanced Technologies, a provider of 3D manufacturing software as its preferred value-added reseller for sales of Sigma Labs products in India - expanding Sigma Labs' global footprint into the world's fifth-largest manufacturing economy.
  • Entered into joint sales agreement with Materialise NV (NASDAQ: MTLS), a leading provider of additive manufacturing software and 3D printing solutions, to commercialize newly integrated PrintRite3D quality assurance technology with the Materialise control platform.
  • Launched Printrite3D® Production Series that introduces the ‘Production Dashboard' and provides production managers with critical metrics, insight and actionable information during the production process.
    • New production dashboard and AI driven metrics provide critical real-time information as 3D printing alternatives accelerate due to worldwide crisis.
  • Appointed Mark K. Ruport as President and Chief Executive Officer, from his prior position as Executive Chairman, to further drive formation of strategic relationships, growth and sales strategies as the company commercializes its proprietary PrintRite3D technology. John Rice remains non-executive Chairman of the Board and has entered into a consulting contract with the company.
  • Raised $4.1 million in gross proceeds from both a January 2020 private placement of convertible preferred stock and warrants as well as an April 2020 offering of common stock and warrants.

COVID-19 Impact to Operations:

  • Short-term disruption to purchasing plans as companies evaluate their industry's situation and approach capital expenditures with caution.
  • New remote monitoring functionality enables customers to remotely monitor a build in-process at the factory and when required take action and notify the production manager.
  • Increased efficiencies in installations and maintenance by use of advanced technologies allowing Sigma engineers to direct end users to address certain issues instead of traveling and performing services onsite.
  • Long-term, many believe that the crisis will cause companies to re-evaluate their supply chains and move the manufacturing process closer to where the part or product will be needed. Such changes, are thought by many, to accelerate the adoption of 3D printing in order to introduce more flexibility into the manufacturing process, greatly improving the ability to react to any disruption, including pandemics, political unrest, natural disasters, etc.

Management Commentary

"The first quarter of 2020, even amongst the various COVID-19 related headwinds, positioned us for an exciting year in the commercialization of PrintRite3D," said Mark K. Ruport, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sigma Labs. "Although we had some short-term impact on our business in March, we are cautiously optimistic that the momentum in the market and the increased demand for more agility in manufacturing supply chains will accelerate the growth of 3D metal printing and open up an even larger opportunity and demand for our technology. We have a well-refined product, ready for use in immediate production and validated by tier-1 partners globally.

"From a cash perspective, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic uncertainties, we've reduced our cash burn by over $100,000 per month through salary reductions and deferments, lowering our COGs, as well as other actions. This will extend our cash runway and demonstrates our team's commitment to our shareholders.

"As the newly appointed CEO, my top four 2020 goals are:

  1. Increasing quarter-over quarter revenue driven by multiple independent revenue streams;
  2. Multi-unit sales of PrintRite3D Production Series by end users that have validated our technology through the RTE program, or through our current contract which allows for a 90-day evaluation;
  3. Strategic Alliances and OEM contracts with both Additive manufacturing hardware and software companies that provide sales leverage and market validation; and
  4. Continued success with R&D organizations and Universities with advanced manufacturing programs training tomorrow's manufacturing leaders on the value of a 3rd party, standards-based in-process quality assurance solution for 3D printing.

"Overall, our level of engagement with customers and prospects has been high. This is further validation that the market sees the need for our technology and that customers put a high priority on completing their evaluations and moving forward on their strategic plans to incorporate 3D printing into their manufacturing strategy,' concluded Rupert.

First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Revenue for the first quarter of 2020 totaled $221,730. This compares to revenues of $64,450 for the first quarter of 2019. The increase in revenue was due to PrintRite3D® unit sales to two research universities, as well as revenue recognized under the legacy Rapid Test and Evaluation ("RTE") program during the quarter.

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2020 was negative $22,973. The company's first quarter 2020 gross margin is primarily a function of ongoing support of legacy RTE programs, including equipment upgrades and additional travel and labor costs.

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2020 were $1.6 million. Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2019 totaled $1.5 million.

Cash used in operating activities for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020 totaled $1.5 million, compared to $1.1 million in the first quarter ended March 31, 2019. This was unusually high due to trade accounts payables carried over from 2019 due to a delay in financing and is not representative of what management expects going forward.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2020 was $1.6 million, or $(1.30) per share, as compared to a net loss of $1.5 million, or $(1.60) per share, in the first quarter of 2019.

Cash totaled $0.6 million at March 31, 2020, as compared to $0.1 million at December 31, 2019 and $1.9 million at March 31, 2019. Subsequent to the close of the first quarter of 2020, the Company completed a $1.5 million offering to further fortify its balance sheet.
