Sigma Labs Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year Financial Results

Record Revenue – Company Positioned for Strong Growth Going Forward

Announces Reverse Stock Split Effective March 17, 2016 and Stock Repurchase Program

SANTA FE, N.M., March 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sigma Labs, Inc. (OTCQB:SGLB) (“Sigma Labs” or the “Company”), a developer of advanced, in process, non-destructive quality inspection systems for metal-based additive manufacturing (“AM”) and other advanced manufacturing technologies, today announced financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2015.

Recent Highlights

  • Posted record revenue of approximately $0.6 million for the quarter, principally driven by sales of PrintRite3D® systems and associated software licenses, and $1.2 million for the full year 2015, versus approximately $0.2 million and $0.5 million for the same periods, respectively, in 2014

  • Announced new orders with Aerojet Rocketdyne for the Company’s PrintRite3D® software applications and, separately, a technology development agreement with 3DSIM. Sigma Labs also presented with 3DSIM at the AMC Winter Meeting of the EWI, held February 10-11, 2016

  • During the fourth quarter a German AM equipment manufacturer entered into an evaluation period for PrintRite3D® within certain of its laser-based powder bed metal machines. The customer is considering adding Sigma Labs’ quality assurance and process control technology to its equipment offerings, starting with the INSPECT™ software

  • Extended business development programs into 2016 – Sigma Labs’ OEM Partner Program and Early Adopter Program (EAP), which incentivize potential clients to install and evaluate Sigma Labs’ proprietary PrintRite3D® software applications. Spartacus3D of France signed as the first EAP participant

  • Today announced that the Company will implement a reverse stock split of its issued and outstanding common shares, on a 1-for-100 basis, and a corresponding decrease in the number of common shares that the Company is authorized to issue, in order to pursue an uplisting onto a national stock exchange

  • Today also announced that the Company has authorized a stock repurchase program of up to $100,000 of the Company's issued and outstanding common stock

“We ended 2015 with a great deal of momentum – testimony to the hard work and dedication of the entire team at Sigma Labs. Revenue last year was the highest in our Company’s history, setting the stage for even stronger growth in 2016,” said Mark Cola, President & CEO of Sigma Labs. “We launched several innovative programs designed to encourage trial of our PrintRite3D® applications, booked our first sales of outsourced 3D printed parts, and hosted or presented at a number of important industry events. Overall, we did what we set out to do – expanded our product line, increased our business development efforts, and, ultimately, drove revenue growth.

“With an interest in increasing our trading liquidity, we are enacting a reverse stock split as part of our efforts to eventually move to a more visible, national exchange. The share consolidation will provide the means for a broader base of institutional investors – specifically, those with minimum price criteria – to consider taking a position in the Company. Also, our stock repurchase program demonstrates our commitment to delivering shareholder value.

“In 2016 we intend to capitalize on last year’s accomplishments and continue on a path towards profitability. We remain upbeat about the overall AM market and our role in it, particularly given the Company’s partnerships, industry affiliations, and strong brand recognition. As demand accelerates in the quarters to come, we are dedicated to maintaining our leadership position and doing everything possible to drive both customer adoption and higher return for our shareholders.”

2015 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Financial Results
Revenue for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2015 was approximately $0.6 million and $1.2 million, respectively, versus approximately $0.2 million and $0.5 million for the same periods in 2014. The Company reported a net loss for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2015 of approximately $0.3 million and $1.7 million, respectively, or $(0.00) per diluted share, versus a loss of approximately $0.3 million and $3.1 million, or $(0.01) per diluted share, for the same periods in 2014. The prior-year twelve month period included a nonrecurring warrant expense of approximately $1.3 million.

Reverse Stock Split
The reverse stock split and decrease in the Company's authorized common shares will be effective as of March 17, 2016.  Following the stock split, each 100 shares of the Company's issued and outstanding common stock will be automatically converted into one issued and outstanding share of the Company's common stock. The reverse stock split will affect all issued and outstanding shares of the Company's common stock, as well as common stock underlying stock options and warrants, outstanding immediately prior to the effective date of the stock split. It is not necessary for shareholders of the Company to exchange their existing stock certificates for new stock certificates of the Company in connection with the stock split; provided, however, that shareholders may do so at their own cost. The Company's ticker symbol will remain unchanged (although a fifth-letter identifier "D" will be appended to indicate the completion of the stock split; after a 20 business-day period following the effective date of the stock split, Sigma Labs' ticker symbol will revert to "SGLB"). Investors can direct any questions concerning the reverse stock split to a broker or the Company's transfer agent, Interwest Stock Transfer, at (801) 272-9294.

Stock Repurchase Program
The Company has authorized a stock repurchase program of up to $100,000 of the Company's issued and outstanding common stock. The shares may be repurchased from time to time in open market transactions at prevailing market prices. The actual timing, number and value of shares repurchased under the program will be determined by management at its discretion and will depend on a number of factors, including the market price of the Company's stock and general market and economic conditions.
