NNDM: Nano Dimension: Buy or Sell?

The Israel-based additive electronics provider Nano Dimension Ltd. (NNDM) is popular for its flagship  DragonFly lights-out digital manufacturing system. The  stock has lost 48.9% over the past month and 16.4% year-to-date, however.

The company suffered a severe setback amid the COVID-19  pandemic as several of its production units had to be closed. And the  demand for NNDM’s products and services — such as its 3D printing technology used in printing electronic devices — declined significantly.

The company has been offering several other  direct solutions to stay afloat amid the pandemic and fund its operations. However, the stock has plunged further of late as investors began rotating away from riskier growth stocks to high-yielding Treasury bonds. Suffice to say, amid stiff competition in the 3D printing technology space, NNDM’s near-term prospects look bleak.

Here’s what we think could shape NNDM’s performance in the coming months:

Selling Shares to Stay Afloat

The company closed an  offering of 39,100,000 of its American Depositary Shares (ADSs) at  $12.80 per ADS on February 18, 2021. This  generated roughly $500 million in proceeds. NNDM plans  to use the  proceeds for working capital, other general corporate purposes, and to pursue strategic opportunities, including possible business combination transactions.

NNDM generated roughly $332.5 million from a direct offering it closed on January 19, 2021 and roughly $250 million from an offering it closed on December 30, 2020. And on December 9, the company generated roughly $180 million from another direct offering.

Weak Financials

NNDM’s top line declined significantly to $438,000 for the third quarter, ended September 30, 2020, as compared to $2.24 million for the third quarter of 2019. NNDM’s gross loss was t $56,000 for the third quarter of 2020, and its operating loss came in at $19.89 million. The company’s total comprehensive loss also widened to $20.72 million for the quarter.

Poor Profitability

In terms of its trailing-12-month gross profit margin, NNDM’s 40.7% is lower than the industry average  48%. Also, the stock has a negative value for its trailing-12-month levered free cash flow margin compared to the industry average  11.9%. NNDM has negative values for it trailing-12-month return on common equity and trailing-12-month return on total assets  compared to the industry averages of 6.4% and 2.8%, respectively.

Consensus Price Target Indicates Downside

Wall Street analysts expect the stock to hit $6 in the near term, which indicates a potential decline of 37.6%.

Bottom Line

The global 3D printing market reached a value of $13.20 billion in 2020 and is  expected to continue growing.  But NNDM is not strategically positioned to gain from  industry tailwinds in the near term. Based on the company’s weak financials, we think it  wise to avoid the stock for now. Moreover, on February 9,  Yoav Stern, the President & CEO of NNDM said, “I stated publicly that revenue in 2020 could be close to zero”.
