|○||Performed a first ever standards calibration with the renowned National Institute of Standards and Technology;|
|○||Opens the door for machine to machine calibration and enables machine matching for the Additive Manufacturing industry; and|
|○||Represents a major milestone to ensuring quality in production environments.|
|●||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.|
|●||Fortified the balance sheet with $1.5 million in gross proceeds through an April 2020 offering of common stock and warrants, and $1.64 million in gross proceeds from the exercise of preferred warrants.|
“The second quarter of 2020 marks the continuation of the Company’s strategic plan – Increasing sales of PrintRite3D, driven by multiple independent revenue streams with exciting progress being made on potential breakthrough contracts at the hardware OEM level,” said Mark K. Ruport, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sigma Labs. “Thanks to our new @Sigma RTE program, we secured a Fortune Global 50 manufacturer at significantly lower cost of sales than previously possible. This new initiative shortens our sales cycle, is asset light and allows OEMs and end users to experience using our IPQA® system to improve build efficiency and ensure quality. Moreover, this initiative is an example of how Sigma adapted to the new COVID world and worked with our agent in Japan to bring a new customer to our testing lab without anyone leaving their respective office. We look forward to new announcements in the weeks to come on this front.
“Our customers are increasingly engaged with our sales staff, reaffirming what we always knew to be true – that the market momentum and increased demand for more agile manufacturing systems due to COVID has been an exciting tailwind for Sigma and our increasingly plug-and-play PrintRite3D product.
“On the financial front, our $1.5 million offering in April 2020 has served to fortify our balance sheet against market uncertainty resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent macro-economic pressure. This, paired with a reduction in cash burn by over $100,000 per month, has better positioned us to weather any macro-economic storms that may arise over the coming months. Executive salary deferments and other cuts such as these stand as a testament to our team’s belief in the long-term potential of our product and our commitment to create value for our shareholders.
“Over the coming months, I will continue to focus my efforts on four main areas: Increasing quarter-over quarter revenue driven by multiple independent revenue streams; driving multi-unit sales of PrintRite3D Production Series by end users that have validated our technology through the @Sigma RTE program; forming new strategic alliances and OEM contracts with both additive manufacturing hardware and software companies that provide sales leverage and market validation; and 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 OPQA®solution for 3D printing.
“As evidenced by these new wins, the customer evolution has migrated from R&D to End Users to now OEMs. I believe that we are on the cusp of the industrialization of 3D metal printing and PrintRite3D is positioned as a critical component, or the missing link, in Additive Manufacturing’s digital chain. Today, we have initiatives in India, Japan, throughout Europe and in countries like Turkey, all accelerating their adoption of AM to lessen their dependency on other countries and increasing their ability to be self-sufficient in times of crisis.
“The macro backdrop for additive manufacturing has never been stronger and Sigma is now uniquely positioned to set the standard for quality assurance for Additive Manufacturing. Despite the COVID crisis, we have strengthened our balance sheet, preserved our cash and added additional sales and marketing resources, positioning the company for strong growth as the economy improves. We look forward to sharing more on our developing story at upcoming virtual events in the third quarter,” concluded Ruport.
Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results
Revenue for the second quarter of 2020 totaled $0.2 million. This compares to revenues of $34 thousand for the second quarter of 2019. The increase in revenue was due to a PrintRite3D® unit sale, as well as revenue recognized under the legacy Rapid Test and Evaluation (“RTE”) program and an in-house RTE during the quarter.
Gross profit for the second quarter of 2020 was $0.1 million as compared to negative $27 thousand in the second quarter of 2019.
Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2020 were $1.53 million as compared to total operating expenses of $1.57 million for the same period in 2019.
Cash used in operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2020 totaled $2.4 million compared to $2.7 million in the first six months ended June 20, 2019. Approximately $400 thousand of this amount was due to trade accounts payables carried over from 2019 due to a delay in financing.
Net loss for the second quarter of 2020 was $1.6 million, or $(0.49) per share, as compared to a net loss of $1.6 million, or $(1.50) per share, in the second quarter of 2019.
