Executive Chairman Peter Leys commented, “Amidst the macro-economic and geo-political turbulence of 2022, Materialise prioritized the sustainability of our top-line growth over the maximization of short term profits. In 2022, we increased our revenues by 13% and grew our deferred revenues by more than 20%. In addition, we continued to strategically invest in our growth businesses despite significant inflationary pressures on labor, energy and materials costs and accelerated the consolidation with both Link3D and Identify3D, as a basis for our future cloud-based recurring income. These added costs in addition to certain one-time items weighed on our overall profitability for the year, with Adjusted EBITDA decreasing to 19,014 kEUR. However, with positive cash flow from operating activities of almost 25,000 kEUR in 2022 and cash and cash equivalents in excess of 140,000 kEUR at year end, we have the liquidity to support these investments and believe this was the right choice for Materialise, positioning us well for more profitable growth in the coming years.”

Mr. Leys concluded, “We currently expect Materialise to post another year of double-digit revenue growth, with revenues totaling between 255,000 and 260,000 kEUR in 2023. As in 2022, we expect our Materialise Medical segment and our Materialise Manufacturing segment will be the main drivers of that growth. While we expect sales of our Materialise Software segment will also grow, this growth may not be fully reflected in the segment’s revenues due to the changing cloud-based subscription business model we are introducing there.
“Assuming that inflation stabilizes in 2023, we expect our continued revenue growth to gradually result in a stronger Adjusted EBITDA, which we currently anticipate to total between 25,000 and 30,000 kEUR for 2023. We expect our three segments to contribute to our Adjusted EBITDA in line with their contributions to our revenue growth.
At the same time, we want to note that the developments in Ukraine will likely have an important impact on the European and global economy as well as on the continuity of the important services we source from our brave workforce in Kyiv and could, therefore, also have a significant effect on our results for 2023. We will continue to monitor these developments, which remain unpredictable.”
