“While the overall operating environment remains challenging, we believe the industry will continue its long-term secular growth, fueled by the mega-trends we’ve discussed in the past,” said Ronen Samuel, Kornit Digital’s Chief Executive Officer. “We are navigating the current market dynamics by working closely with global brands, retailers and fulfillers to shift production volumes to on-demand, executing on new product introductions and adoption of these innovative technologies, and focusing on returning to profitability.”

Mr. Samuel continued, “Our vision remains unchanged and we remain extremely confident in the fundamentals of the business. With our solid financial foundation and dedicated global team of professionals, we continue to be laser focused on leading the industry’s transformation from analog manufacturing to sustainable on-demand digital production.”

“We continue to strategically look at all aspects of our business and are adjusting our cost structure as needed, including a recent focused reduction-in-force, while reallocating resources to key growth initiatives and investments in long-term programs that support our customers’ needs,” said Alon Rozner, Kornit Digital’s Chief Financial Officer. “Our extremely strong balance sheet provides us with a great foundation to navigate the current market conditions and volatility, while focusing on longer-term opportunities to drive profitable growth.”

GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2022 was $19.5 million, or ($0.39) per basic share, compared to net income of $5.6 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2021.

Third Quarter 2022 Guidance

For the third quarter of 2022, the Company expects revenue to be in the range of $66 million to $70 million; non-GAAP operating margins to be in the range of -15% to -11% of revenue; EBITDA Margins to be in the range of -12% to -8%. Consistent with past practice, this guidance excludes the impact of the fair value of issued warrants in the quarter.

$75 million Share Repurchase Authorization

The Company announced today that its Board of Directors has authorized the repurchase of up to $75 million of the Company’s ordinary shares, subject to the completion of required Israeli regulatory procedures.

“A share repurchase program is a flexible way to return capital to our shareholders when we see significant value in our stock,” said Mr. Rozner. “In evaluating our capital allocation plans and the current trading levels of our stock, the Board and management believe that using a portion of the cash on our extremely strong balance sheet – which included approximately $705 million in cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities at the end of the second quarter – for repurchases of our ordinary shares is in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders, and will not adversely impact our ability to execute on our growth plans.”

The program is subject to Kornit’s Board of Directors’ final confirmation that the Company meets certain liquidity-related requirements under the Israeli Companies Law, as well as Kornit’s receipt of Israeli court approval, which would cover an initial period of six months, after which period renewed court approval would be needed to continue the program. The court approval process is expected to take several months. If and when the Company receives court approval, repurchases may be made from time to time through open market repurchases or through privately negotiated transactions, subject to market conditions, applicable legal requirements, and other relevant factors. Open market repurchases will be effected in accordance with the requirements of Rule 10b-18 under the Exchange Act. The Company may also, from time to time, enter into Rule 10b5-1 plans to facilitate repurchases of its shares under this authorization. The repurchase program does not obligate the Company to acquire any particular amount of its ordinary shares, and it may be modified, suspended, or terminated, at any time at the Company’s discretion. The timing and actual number of shares repurchased may depend on a variety of factors, including price, general business and market conditions, and alternative investment opportunities.

Announces CFO Transition

The Company also announced that Alon Rozner, Chief Financial Officer, will leave the Company for personal reasons. Kornit is pleased to appoint Lauri Hanover as the Company’s new CFO. To ensure an orderly transition, Mr. Rozner will continue as CFO until his expected departure in November.

Since March 2015, Ms. Hanover has served as a member of the Company’s Board of Directors. Ms. Hanover has over 25 years of CFO experience and financial expertise in the software, hardware, consumer goods, and industrials sectors. Ms. Hanover holds a B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania, a B.S. in Economics from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, as well as an M.B.A. from New York University.

Ms. Hanover will continue as a member of the Company’s Board of Directors (“Board”), but will step down as the Company’s Audit Committee Chair and as member of the Compensation Committee effective immediately. Current Board members Mr. Dov Ofer will assume the role of Audit Chairperson and Mr. Gabi Seligsohn will join the Audit Committee, while Mr. Stephen Nigro will join the Compensation Committee. Each of the foregoing individuals heading or joining those committees of the Board is an independent director and possesses the requisite credentials for the relevant role under the Nasdaq Listing Rules.

“Alon has been an integral member of our executive management team and an immensely valued colleague to everyone here at Kornit,” said Ronen Samuel. “His exceptional leadership and vital contributions further strengthened and expanded the financial foundation of the firm, especially through the global pandemic. We wish him only the best in the future.”

“It has been a pleasure to serve as Kornit’s CFO and to work with such an amazing team across the world,” said Alon Rozner. “I have the utmost confidence in the Company, its strategy, and its leadership team, and have no doubt the Company will successfully transform the fashion and textile industry. I look forward to working with Lauri on a successful transition and wish everyone at Kornit tremendous success.”

Commenting on her appointment, Ms. Hanover added, “I am truly honored to undertake this role with Kornit in a new capacity as CFO and look forward to working with Alon on the transition, and with the entire management team to execute on our long-term strategy and drive value creation.”
