Desktop Metal Remains Focused on Path to Profitability After Preliminary Tally Shows Stratasys Shareholders Did Not Approve the Merger Agreement

Desktop Metal, Inc. (NYSE: DM), a global leader in Additive Manufacturing (AM) 2.0 technologies for mass production of metal, polymer, ceramic, and health products, today announced that its stockholders approved the merger agreement with Stratasys Ltd. (Nasdaq: SSYS), a leader in polymer 3D printing solutions.


However, at a special meeting of Stratasys stockholders on Sept. 28, Stratasys announced that a preliminary tally indicated that it did not obtain stockholder approval for the proposals related to the merger agreement. Consequently, the previously announced merger agreement has been terminated and DM is to be compensated agreed-upon fees.


“We’re grateful for our shareholders’ support. While the team at Desktop Metal believed in the merits of our combination, and is disappointed in the outcome of the merger agreement, we are completely confident in the trajectory of our business, which continues to lower operating costs while growing revenue,” said Ric Fulop, Founder and CEO of Desktop Metal. “Our plan to reduce costs and generate revenue remains on track as customers continue transitioning to our AM 2.0 technologies for mass production of metal, polymer, ceramic and health products.”


Desktop Metal entered the second half with cash of $127.6 million, and has demonstrated improvements to operating cash management over multiple quarters.
