(NASDAQ:SASI) ("Sigma", "we," "our," or the "Company"), a leading provider of quality assurance software to the commercial 3D printing industry, has reported its financial and operational results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023.
First Quarter 2023 Results Conference Call
Due to discussions related to the Company's ongoing consideration of a range of strategic alternatives designed to enhance shareholder value, including a possible strategic investment, acquisition, merger, business combination, or similar transaction, Sigma is not hosting its regular quarterly conference call. Future announcements related to strategic alternatives will be publicly communicated to shareholders.
With this activity continuing, in parallel, Sigma continued to progress its core business.
Key First Quarter and Subsequent 2023 Highlights and Business Update
- Expanded collaboration for connected software solutions with Materialise, a global leader in 3D printing software and service solutions, to provide additive manufacturing (AM) users automated quality control by integrating the PrintRite3D® quality assurance solution into the new software solution Materialise Process Control on their Co-AM platform.
- Expanded software into post processing with DyeMansion, the global leader in connected & integrated post-processing solutions for industrial polymer 3D-printing, to add an integrated hardware/software solution option that offers extra quality assurance for DyeMansion's post-processing solutions, expanding Sigma's quality product coverage beyond just the 3D printer space.
- Continued progress towards the launch of software only solutions to support OEM, hardware, and software partner integrations.
Jacob Brunsberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sigma, stated, "During the first quarter we continued to focus on expanding the industry partnerships that are critical to the growth of our software-only solutions, targeted for release in Q2 2023. We believe that these collaborations would unlock market potential and expand the total addressable market that could drive our company forward.
"In parallel, we continue to work with Lake Street Capital Markets on the exploration of a variety of strategic alternatives designed to enhance shareholder value, including a possible strategic investment, acquisition, merger, business combination, or similar transaction. We look forward to providing additional updates in the months to come as we seek to make progress on our evolution to a subscription pricing model and transform to software only product options," concluded Brunsberg.
First Quarter 2023 Financial Results
Revenue for the first quarter of 2023 totaled $130,159 compared to revenues of $51,844 for the first quarter of 2022. The increase was primarily due to increased PrintRite3D sales, increased subscription-based revenue, and increased annual maintenance contract revenue.
Gross profit for the first quarter of 2023 was $66,495 as compared to $11,753 in the first quarter of 2022. Gross margin for the first quarter of 2023 was 51% compared to gross margin of 23% for the prior year quarter. The gross margin increase was primarily driven by an increase in subscription and legacy Rapid Test & Evaluation ("RTE") revenue during the first quarter of 2023.
Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2023 were $1.8 million, compared to $2.3 million in 2022, a decrease of 19%. The decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in salaries and benefits, office expenses, and business travel.
Cash used in operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2023 totaled $1.3 million as compared to $2.0 million in the three months ended March 31, 2022. Average monthly cash usage in the first quarter of 2023 was approximately $452,000, down from an average of $652,000 for the fourth quarter of 2022 and $717,000 for the full year of 2022.
Net loss for the first quarter of 2023 was $1.8 million, or $0.17 per share, as compared to a net loss of $2.2 million, or $0.21 per share in the first quarter of 2022.
