ROSH-HA`AYIN, Israel, Feb. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kornit Digital Ltd. (NASDAQ:KRNT), a leading provider of digital printing solutions for the global printed textile industry, today reported results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2015.

Sales for the fourth quarter of 2015 were $25.5 million, a 35.1% increase over the prior year period of $18.9 million.  Higher sales were attributable to widespread growth in all areas, including systems and services as well as inks and consumables.

Non-GAAP net income in the fourth quarter of 2015 was $3.2 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to prior-year net income of $1.6 million. On a GAAP basis, the Company reported net income of $2.1 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to net income of $1.2 million, in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Gabi Seligsohn, Kornit Digital’s Chief Executive Officer commented, “We are pleased to report a strong finish to our first year as a public company, and are proud of the milestones we have achieved throughout the year. Notably, operating margin improved 350 basis points over the prior-year, despite increased investment in our global infrastructure and R&D, and the addition of almost 100 full-time employees during the year, bringing our total end of year headcount to 343. We expect that these investments should enable the Company to capitalize on its market leading DTG position, and support the ongoing rollout of the Allegro, the industry’s first single-step roll-to-roll solution.”

Mr. Seligsohn continued, “We head into 2016 with strong momentum, which is supported by growing market penetration of the Allegro, the planned launch of the Vulcan, and an aggressive product roadmap with several product enhancements to our existing DTG portfolio.”

Fourth Quarter Results of Operations
In the fourth quarter of 2015, Kornit reported sales of $25.5 million, an increase of 35.1% compared with the prior-year level of $18.9 million. Higher sales were the result of contributions from all product categories including systems, ink and consumables, and services.

Non-GAAP gross profit in the fourth quarter was $12.4 million, or 48.6% of sales, compared with $8.6 million, or 45.6% of sales in the prior-year. On a GAAP basis, fourth quarter gross profit was $12.1 million, compared with $8.5 million, in the prior-year. Higher gross margins primarily reflected a favorable sales mix of high throughput systems, and a stronger contribution from ink and consumables during the current period.

Non-GAAP operating expenses in the fourth quarter increased to $9.1 million, or 35.5% of sales, compared to $6.9 million, or 36.4% of sales in the prior year. On a GAAP basis, total operating expenses in the fourth quarter were $9.9 million, compared to $7.2 million in the prior period. The increase in total operating expenses was consistent with the previously stated growth strategy, as the Company continues to execute to its global infrastructure build out.

Fourth quarter non-GAAP research and development expenses were $3.2 million, or 12.7% of sales, compared to $2.6 million, or 13.7% of sales in the prior-year.  Fourth quarter GAAP research and development expenses were $3.4 million, compared to the prior-year period of $2.6 million.

Full Year 2015 Results of Operations

Full year 2015 sales were $86.4 million, a 30.2% increase over the prior year period of $66.4 million. Higher sales compared to the prior year were primarily related to higher volume of products sold, an improved mix of industrial systems, the success of new product introductions, and incremental sales from services. For the full-year, the Company recorded 60% of revenue from systems and services, and 40% of revenue from ink and consumables. 

Non-GAAP gross profit for the full year 2015 was $41.3 million, or 47.8% of sales, compared to $29.4 million, or 44.3% of sales for the full year 2014. Full year GAAP gross profit was $40.6 million, compared to $29.2 million in the prior year. Higher gross margins compared to the prior year were primary the result of a favorable system sales mix to industrial systems, and a higher volume of ink and consumables. 

Non-GAAP operating expenses for the full year of 2015 were $30.8 million, or 35.7% of sales, compared to the prior year level of $24.6 million, or 37.0% of sales. Full year 2015 operating expenses on a GAAP basis were $34.8 million, compared to $25.4 million for the full year of 2014. Lower operating expenses as a percentage of sales reflect leverage on higher sales compared to 2014, partially offset by incremental expenses as the Company executes its global infrastructure strategy.

Full year non-GAAP research and development expenses were $11.4 million, or 13.2% of sales, compared to $9.4 million, or 14.1% of sales in the prior year. Full year 2015 research and development expenses were $12.0 million, compared to the prior year of $9.5 million.
