Sigma Labs Announces Full Year 2016 Financial Results
Recent Steps Position Company for Next Phase of Growth
SANTA FE, N.M. – March 30, 2017 – Sigma Labs, Inc. (NASDAQ: SGLB) (“Sigma Labs” or the “Company”), a provider of quality assurance software under the PrintRite3D® brand, today announced financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2016.
· Completed a public offering that raised gross proceeds of approximately $5.8 million concurrent with uplisting to the NASDAQ Capital Market following a reverse stock split. The offering provided funds for the Company’s 2017 growth plans, while moving to the NASDAQ allows for a broader base of potential institutional investors.
· The Company also formed strategic alliances with Morf3D and Jaguar Precision Machine (“Jaguar”) to serve the additive manufacturing (“AM”) needs of the aerospace and defense (“A&D”) sector. As part of these agreements, the Company’s PrintRite3D® software will be licensed to Morf3D and Jaguar, and Sigma Labs will utilize its on-site EOS machine to form aerospace components under contract using additive manufacturing. The strategic alliances are expected to significantly enhance the Company’s 2017 top line growth profile.
· Sigma Labs announced additional contract wins with Aerojet Rocketdyne, Pratt & Whitney, Honeywell, and Siemens during the fourth quarter and early part of 2017.
· The Company also announced, subsequent to the end of 2016, that a leading European AM equipment provider had signed onto its OEM Partner Program as part of a long-term commercial agreement, expanding an existing relationship. Sigma Labs’ PrintRite3D® applications will be embedded in certain of the OEM’s AM machines prior to them being sold.
“We’re already well into 2017 and, with so much behind us, I feel the Company is in a position to see greatly improved performance going forward,” said Mark Cola, President & CEO of Sigma Labs. “In a relatively short period of time we’ve raised much-needed growth capital, uplisted to the NASDAQ, signed several important strategic relationships, and won contracts with marquee customers such as Pratt & Whitney and Siemens. We’ve also landed a significant OEM Partner and are actively working on other business development initiatives, setting the stage for stronger growth in the quarters to come. In effect, we’ve done what we said we would do – winning new customers, joining with other leading companies to move the industry forward, and improving our balance sheet to take advantage of the opportunities to come. This year we have the wind at our backs, with unlimited potential for taking additive manufacturing to a whole new level.”
