“We continue to make great strides in executing on our strategy thanks to great efforts from our talented team. We feel very confident in our long-term opportunity to extend our leadership position in distributed manufacturing as our product portfolio grows and evolves. The pending acquisition of Digital Metal, coupled with our organic product innovation engine, will continue to expand our addressable market and help our customers solve even more industrial manufacturing challenges.”

The sales for the Digital Forge remained strong across products and continued to grow for Markforged’s newest Additive Manufacturing machine, the FX20. Global orders for the FX20, in particular, were said to have exceeded the company’s expectations.
“Our customers realise the value of The Digital Forge and, while our pipeline continues to grow, we have started to see the impact of the uncertainty created by global macroeconomic conditions,” added Mark Schwartz, Chief Financial Officer. “Our sales cycles are growing longer due to customers’ hesitation to commit to capital expenses in this current environment. We are therefore adjusting our guidance accordingly. Our confidence in our medium- to long-term outlook has not changed.”
