“Markforged is a differentiated player in additive manufacturing. We bring a strong balance sheet and a track record of execution to our industry. Our focus on high-value, end-use manufacturing applications, printed at the point of need, solves for today’s extreme supply chain challenges, resulting in a growing install base and leading gross margins. We are accelerating organic product innovation as planned and increasing our addressable market. I’m so proud of our team for their execution against our plan,” said Shai Terem, President and CEO of Markforged. “We also applaud the Biden administration’s Additive Manufacturing Forward initiative, announced earlier this month, which we believe will help accelerate adoption of additive technologies and create more agile and resilient supply chains. Markforged is excited to be part of this important initiative to help strengthen American manufacturing.”

Business Highlights

Production and delivery of Markforged’s newest printer, the FX20, continued as planned this quarter. The majority of shipments will occur in the second half of the year, but the printers already in the field are generating great feedback and increased interest. The FX20 were showcased in North America for the first time at the Rapid + TCT 2022 trade show in Detroit.

The company launched Precise PLA in the first quarter as part of our strategy to expand the addressable market. This cost-effective, specialized version of polylactic acid enables their customers to use the Markforged solution for the full product lifecycle, from design through tooling and into production.

Subsequent to the quarter-end Markforged completed its acquisition of cloud-native software provider Teton Simulation Software. Teton’s SmartSlice™ technology will be integrated into Markforged’s Eiger software as a subscription add-on, enabling customers to optimize and validate advanced composite parts for the most demanding production applications.

As part of Markforged’s long-term growth strategy, the Company made continued, yet measured, investments to accelerate innovation efforts in R&D and grow its go-to-market organization. The Markforged organization grew to over 400 team members this quarter.

Markforged reaffirms its full-year 2022 guidance. Revenue is expected to be within the range of $114-123 million, and non-GAAP gross margins are expected to be within the range of 55%-57%.
