ROSH-HA`AYIN, Israel, Nov. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kornit Digital Ltd. (NASDAQ:KRNT), a leading provider of digital printing solutions for the global printed textile industry, today reported results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016.

Revenues for the third quarter of 2016 increased 40.3% to $30.9 million, compared to the prior year period of $22.0 million. Record sales in the quarter were achieved by significant growth throughout the company's product offerings, including systems sold and ink and consumables. Increased sales of Avalanche 1000 were a substantial driver of revenue growth in the quarter.

Third quarter GAAP net income was $0.4 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to net income of $2.1 million in the third quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP net income in the third quarter of 2016 was $3.6 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared to prior-year net income of $2.9 million, or $0.09 per diluted share.

Gabi Seligsohn, Kornit Digital's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We expected a large step-up in revenue in the third quarter, and our performance exceeded the high end of our plan. We are pleased with revenue growth of over 40% year-over-year, which was led by the expanded role our large customers now play in our quarterly revenues from both system and ink and consumable sales. System sales to these accounts consisted primarily of our flagship model, the Avalanche 1000. Higher revenue also demonstrated the leverage in our model, as Non-GAAP operating margin was 12.5%, despite the sizable investments we continued to make in our global infrastructure in sales, marketing, and R&D, while GAAP operating margin was 2.1%."

Seligsohn continued, "We believe we are well positioned to continue the momentum through the end of the year, supported by strong order rates during the third quarter, new customers for the Allegro roll-to-roll printer, revenue from system upgrades and contribution from our new platform, the Vulcan."

Third Quarter 2016 Results of Operations

Revenues in the third quarter of 2016 were $30.9 million, an increase of 40.3% compared with the prior-year level of $22.0 million. Record sales in the quarter were achieved by significant growth throughout the company's product offerings, including systems sold and ink and consumables. Increased sales of Avalanche 1000 was a substantial driver of revenue growth in the quarter.  

GAAP third quarter gross profit was $13.6 million, or 44.1% of sales, compared with $10.6 million, or 48.0% of sales, in the third quarter of 2015.  GAAP gross profit was adversely affected by the repurchase of inventory in connection with the Company's acquisition of the digital printing assets of SPSI. Non-GAAP gross profit in the third quarter was $15.2 million, or 49.2% of sales, compared with $10.7 million, or 48.3% of sales in the prior-year.  Higher Non-GAAP gross profit primarily reflected a favorable sales mix of high throughput systems, and an increased contribution from ink and consumables during the current period.

GAAP total operating expenses in the third quarter were $13.0 million, or 41.9% of sales, compared to $8.4 million, or 37.9% of sales, in the third quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP operating expenses in the third quarter increased to $11.4 million, or 36.7% of sales, compared to $7.7 million, or 35.1% of sales in the third quarter of 2015. The increase in total operating expenses was consistent with the company's investment strategy to expand its infrastructure.   

Third quarter GAAP research and development expenses were $4.4 million, or 14.2% of sales compared to $3.1 million, or 13.9% of sales, in the third quarter of 2015. Third quarter non-GAAP research and development expenses were $4.4 million, or 14.2% of sales, compared to $2.9 million, or 13.3% of sales in the third quarter of 2015.

GAAP third quarter operating income was $0.7 million, compared to $2.2 million in the third quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP operating income in the third quarter increased to $3.9 million, representing a company record, compared to $3.0 million in the third quarter of 2015. As a percent of sales, Non-GAAP operating margin for the third quarter was 12.5% of sales, compared with 13.5% of sales in the prior year. 

The company reported third quarter GAAP net income of $0.4 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to net income of $2.1 million in the third quarter of 2015.   On a Non-GAAP basis, net income for the third quarter of 2016 was $3.6 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared to $2.9 million in the third quarter of 2015.

Balance Sheet and Cash FlowAt September 30, 2016, the company had cash and cash equivalents, deposits and marketable securities of $56.7 million and no long-term debt. Third quarter cash flow provided by operating activities was $2.5 million. Through the first nine months of 2016, cash used in operating activities was $4.3 million, primarily due to an increase of accounts receivables and inventory.

Third quarter cash flow provided by investment activities was $4.4 million. Through the first nine months of 2016, cash provided by investment activities was $3.8 million and included a $9.2 million investment in SPSI assets acquisition including substantial amounts relating to inventory and future services.

Non-GAAP Discussion DisclosureNon-GAAP financial measures consist of GAAP financial measures adjusted to exclude acquisition related expenses, compensation in relation to the IPO, one time expenses, excess cost of acquired inventory, share-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquired intangible assets. The purpose of such adjustments is to give an indication of our performance exclusive of non-cash charges and other items that are considered by management to be outside of our core operating results. These non-GAAP measures are among the primary factors management uses in planning for and forecasting future periods. Furthermore, the non-GAAP measures are regularly used internally to understand, manage and evaluate our business and make operating decisions, and we believe that they are useful to investors as a consistent and comparable measure of the ongoing performance of our business. However, our non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures, and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Additionally, these non-GAAP financial measures may differ materially from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.
