Desktop Metal, Burlington, Massachusetts, USA, has announced its financial results for the first quarter, ended March 31, 2023. The company reported revenue of $41.3 million, down 5.5% from first quarter 2022 revenue of $43.7 million. Despite this, the company reaffirmed its revenue expectation of between $210 to $260 million for full year 2023.

“Desktop Metal is off to a solid start to 2023 following very strong growth last year,” stated Ric Fulop, Founder and CEO of Desktop Metal. “Customer demand trends for our unique portfolio of AM 2.0 mass production solutions remain resilient, despite an unsteady macro environment, giving us confidence in our growth projections for this year. Additionally, we’ve made significant progress on our cost reduction efforts initiated last year and expanded in February 2023. Going forward, we expect to demonstrate continued reductions in our cost structure in order to expand margins and deliver on our adjusted EBITDA commitments. We believe we can differentiate ourselves as we navigate a difficult economic backdrop relative to our industry peers.”
