Desktop Metal publishes financial results for Q3 2022

Desktop Metal, Inc. (NYSE: DM) announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2022. “Our team continued to work diligently in the third quarter to drive adoption of our AM 2.0 mass production solutions with continued traction from both customers and major strategic partners,” said Ric Fulop, Founder and CEO of Desktop Metal. “This was demonstrated by a promising new strategic collaboration with Align Technology, the market leader in clear aligners.”

Fulop continued, “Although we continue to make meaningful progress on our long-term growth strategy, third quarter results did not meet our expectations as macroeconomic environment headwinds accelerated during the quarter, leading some customers to delay purchase decisions. To address this change to our operating backdrop, we have taken decisive actions to accelerate and expand our cost optimization initiative, and will continue to evaluate opportunities to reduce our expense structure and prioritize our path to profitability.”

Fulop concluded, “Despite short-term challenges, the long-term trends supporting broad adoption of additive manufacturing and market growth to over $100 billion in the next decade remain intact, particularly for mass production. Supported by an unmatched portfolio of AM 2.0 solutions, Desktop Metal is well-positioned to continue capturing share of this growing market, and take advantage of the next stage of long-term secular growth.”
