ROSH-HA`AYIN, Israel, May 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kornit Digital Ltd. (NASDAQ: KRNT), a worldwide market leader in digital textile printing technology, today reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

“We are excited to share a strong start to the year and outstanding first quarter results. We significantly exceeded our expectations for revenue and profitability, and our outlook for the year is very strong,” said Ronen Samuel, Kornit Digital’s Chief Executive Officer. “As the world moves into the post-pandemic era, the textile industry is in desperate need to accelerate its mass adoption of digital, sustainable, on-demand production. The business opportunity ahead of us is enormous and we are laser focused on introducing continued innovation and scaling our business on all fronts.”

Mr. Samuel continued, “during the second half of last year we discussed engagements on major global expansion projects with multiple strategic accounts, which we are now rolling out and we continue to build Kornit’s brand recognition in the heart of the fashion and home décor industries. The launch of our Max technology establishes a new standard for on-demand fashion and apparel production and significantly expands our addressable market into lucrative new segments. Our first product release, the ATLAS MAX, is just the beginning of revolutionary future new products coming from the MAX line, which will unlock additional huge market segments. Kornit is in a remarkable position and I am more confident than ever in our value proposition, our leadership position, and our dedicated people, as we take another step on our path to become a $500 million revenue run rate business ahead of plan.”

The following table compares the adverse, non-cash impact that the Company’s outstanding warrants had on the Company’s results of operations during the first quarters of 2021 and 2020, respectively:

Non-GAAP Discussion Disclosure

Non-GAAP financial measures consist of GAAP financial measures adjusted to exclude the impact of share-based compensation expenses, acquisition related expenses, excess cost of acquired inventory, foreign exchange differences associated with ASC 842, amortization of acquired intangible assets, deferred tax impact and the one-time impact of COVID-19, and the tax effect of the foregoing. 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.
