Kornit Digital Reports First Quarter 2020 Results

May 19, 2020

Textile Industry at Inflection Point

  • First quarter revenue of $26.2 million, net of non-cash warrants impact of $0.6 million
  • First quarter 2020 GAAP operating loss of $13.0 million; Non-GAAP operating loss of $10.5 million, including $0.6 million attributed to the non-cash impact of warrants
  • First quarter 2020 performance reflects immediate short-term impact of COVID-19
  • High confidence in delivering year-over-year growth for the second half of 2020

ROSH-HA'AYIN, Israel, May 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kornit Digital Ltd. (NASDAQ: KRNT), a leading provider of digital printing solutions for the global textile industry, today reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

“While our first quarter 2020 results were significantly impacted by efforts to contain COVID-19, we are very encouraged by the global reopening of the economy and see a clear path to reaccelerating top line growth,” said Ronen Samuel, Kornit Digital’s Chief Executive Officer. “The broader market disruption of the last few months has created an inflection point in the textile industry, further accelerating the shift to e-commerce and exposing the inherent supply chain challenges faced by traditional retail. There is a need across all segments for flexible inventory management, all of which is driving an increased need for on-demand digital production and decoration of textiles in a sustainable way.”

Samuel continued, “We believe this short-term dislocation moves the market more quickly in our direction and is reflected in our strengthening pipeline. Looking at the balance of fiscal 2020, we expect that customers will accelerate their investments in Kornit as they prepare for peak activity. I am more confident than ever in our value proposition and our leadership position. Kornit is very well positioned to seize the market opportunity ahead of us, and we expect to deliver year-over-year growth for the second half of 2020.”

2019 GAAP and Non-GAAP figures in today’s press release are presented using a different valuation basis for the warrants impact compared to previous years as a result of the recently issued accounting standards update (ASU 2019-08).

The following table compares the adverse, non-cash impact that our outstanding warrants had on our results of operations during the first quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively:

“Early on we made the decision to maintain investment in the infrastructure to support the significant growth we expect in the near future and are as ready as ever to support our customers and partners as they reopen their businesses,” said Guy Avidan, Kornit Digital’s Chief Financial Officer. “The market is moving quickly in our direction and this focus on efficient execution has allowed us to continue investing in innovation and long-term opportunities that will further enhance our market leadership. We believe this was the right approach and are very optimistic as we look at the remainder of the year and beyond.”
