In the first half of 2017, the consolidated revenue of Prodways Group amounted to €14.6 million, an increase of 18.2% compared to the first half of 2016. In the Systems division, sales of the new ProMaker P1000 machine contributed only €0.5 million as marketing was slowed down in order to perfect its reliability. At the same time, the Products division made significant progress enabling Prodways Group to achieve growth markedly higher than the majority of listed players in the sector.
In the Systems division including 3D printers and related materials, revenue amounted to €7.5 million in the first half of 2017, stable in relation to the first half of 2016, despite a particularly steady comparison base in the second quarter of 2016 due to the delivery of a large number of machines.
During the half year, the division continued to expand its offer with the announcement of its new Rapid Additive Forging technology for 3D printing of large metal parts and of its new generation 3D printers, ProMaker LD series, dedicated to the dental industry. The division also had commercial success with the development of a new plastic injection molding application with Hahn-Schickard which selected Prodways Group's ProMaker L5000 and resin.
In the Products division including the design of on-demand parts and medical applications (dental and podiatry), revenue amounted to €7.4 million in the first half of 2017, 50.5% higher than the first half of 2016 sustained by the continuous sales of on-demand parts and the good growth momentum of its activities in the medical sector.
Thanks to its successful Initial Public Offering, Prodways Group now has a more robust balance sheet, offering financial and strategic flexibility to implement its growth plan. In the next few months, the Group may announce a first acquisition transaction.
For 2017, the Group confirms its objective to achieve EBITDA breakeven in the fourth quarter of 2017.
