Kornit Digital Announces Preliminary Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Rish Ha'Ayin, ISRAEL

ROSH HA’AYIN, Israel, July 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kornit Digital Ltd. (“Kornit” or “The Company”) (Nasdaq: KRNT), a worldwide market leader in sustainable, on-demand, digital fashionX and textile production technologies, announced today preliminary results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022. The information in this press release is approximate due to the preliminary nature of the announcement and remains subject to normal quarter-end closing review.

“The overall re-calibration of e-commerce growth, combined with macro headwinds which meaningfully accelerated in the last few weeks of the quarter, as well as delays in the completion of customer production facilities, resulted in a significantly slower pace of direct-to-garment (DTG) systems orders in the second quarter as compared to our prior expectations,” said Ronen Samuel, Chief Executive Officer of Kornit Digital.

Mr. Samuel continued, “We have entered a period where some of our customers are working through excess capacity built throughout the two-year pandemic period, which we expect to continue for the near-term. At the same time, based on our focused investments in R&D over the past several years, we are working with our customers and prospects on several meaningful growth initiatives, including new product introductions, upgrades, and novel applications that we believe will open up new addressable markets and help drive incremental demand in their businesses. We see meaningful post-pandemic opportunities with major brands and retailers shifting production from mass-analog off-shore production to short-run, near-shore production, and believe Kornit is well positioned to take advantage of these trends.”

Mr. Samuel concluded, “Kornit is an extremely strong company with a profitable business model, robust balance sheet, intimate customer relationships and a dedicated global team of professionals. We believe the industry will continue its long-term secular growth and are confident in our ability to successfully navigate this near-term volatility. We remain committed to profitable growth and will continue to lead the digital transformation of the industry. We look forward to providing additional updates regarding our second quarter results and operations on our next earnings conference call in August.”

Preliminary Results For the Second Quarter

Based on the information currently available, for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022, the Company expects:

  • Revenues to be in the range of $56.4 million to $59.4 million, net of non-cash warrant impact of approximately $4.6 million.
  • Non-GAAP Operating Margin of between -34% and -28% and Adjusted EBITDA Margin between -30% to -24%, both net of non-cash warrant impact of approximately 10%.
  • The Company currently expects third quarter revenues to be at or above second quarter revenues and will provide further details regarding its business outlook when it releases its full financial results.

The non-GAAP financial measures presented consist of GAAP financial measures adjusted to exclude the impact of share-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquired intangible assets and other and depreciation. The purpose of such adjustments is to provide an indication of the Company’s performance exclusive of non-cash charges and other items that are considered by management to be outside of the Company’s 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 the Company’s business and make operating decisions, and the Company believes that they are useful to investors as a consistent and comparable measure of the ongoing performance of the Company’s business. However, the Company’s 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 the Company’s 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.
