ROCK HILL, SC, USA, Feb 26, 2016 - 3D Systems Corporation (NYSE: DDD) announced that it will delay filing its annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015. The company will file a Form 12b-25, Notification of Late Filing, with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which allows the company to extend the deadline to file its Form 10-K to March 15, 2016. The company noted that the delay in filing is related to the completion of work related to the goodwill and intangible asset impairment charge. The delayed filing has no impact on 3D Systems’ customers or the operations of the business.
Consistent with its prior announcement, the company expects to record a non-cash goodwill and intangibles impairment charge in the fourth quarter of 2015 in the range of $510 million to $570 million. These impairment charges will not impact the company’s future business activities or cash flows. As of December 31, 2015, the company closed the quarter with approximately $156 million of cash on hand and had no borrowings under its $150 million revolving credit facility.
Additionally, the company reaffirms its expectation to report revenue for the fourth quarter of approximately $183 million and that the previously disclosed charge related to inventory write downs and purchase commitments in connection with its shift away from consumer products will be approximately $27 million.
Excluding the goodwill and intangibles impairment charge, the company expects to report that operating expenses decreased sequentially to approximately $90 million.
In connection with the extension for its Form 10-K filing, the company will postpone its previously announced February 29, 2016 conference call and webcast to discuss fourth quarter and full year 2015 results. The company will reschedule its fourth quarter and full year 2015 conference call and webcast to coincide with its filing of its Form 10-K, which it expects to be on or before the extended deadline.
These are preliminary results and estimates based on current expectations and are subject to year-end closing adjustments and completion of goodwill and intangibles impairment testing. Actual results may differ.
