We look forward to working with Nano Dimension to join two great companies and their devoted teams that can serve our stakeholders to the maximum extent possible.”

Compelling Strategic and Financial Benefits

  • Unites two product portfolios with highly complementary capabilities: The transaction combines the strengths of each company across varied end user-applications, Additive Manufacturing (“AM”) technologies and material coverage to create the broadest product portfolio across metal, electronics, casting, polymer, micro-polymer and ceramics. Nano is a known leader in 3D-printed electronics and high-performance polymer, ceramic and metal applications, with a robust software platform driven by DeepCube’s deep learning-based AI, while Desktop Metal maintains platforms focused on industrial-volume scale applications of metal and polymer with proprietary materials, software, and sintering solutions.
  • Accelerates industry transition to mass production: The union of the two companies will create a long-term business and a leader in 3D print through innovative solutions that drive the transition from prototyping to mainstream tooling and end-use part production. The combined company will be the first AM provider covering the full gamut of customer needs from prototyping to production across a range of critical and high-performance medical and electronics applications in industrial and high-performance materials.
  • Deepens exposure in key end markets, enhancing customer penetration, while diversifying its base: The combined company is expected to be able to expand opportunities to cross-sell to its existing customers as well as to grow its overall customer base with optimized customer acquisition capabilities and joint go-to-market strategies, including targeting customers with complementary offerings in shared key markets in the automotive, aerospace/defense, industrial, medical and R&D/academia industries. Together, the combined company will serve a range of industry verticals with blue-chip customers including Amazon, Caterpillar, Fraunhofer Institute, NASA, Raytheon, REHAU, Tesla, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Toyota, the US Army and more.
  • Developing a premium, high-margin portfolio of AM & materials solutions with strong recurring revenue potential: Together, Nano Dimension’s and Desktop Metal’s portfolio will be focused on high-tech solutions that generate premium margins and are supported by an installed machine base of over 8,000 systems, representing significant opportunities for recurring revenue generation from a larger services and consumables offering. The combined company will benefit from significantly enhanced scale and a diversified profile with 2023 combined revenue of $246 million, of which 28% was generated by recurring revenue streams from the services and consumables. The combined company’s complementary expertise and leadership in solutions for mass production will create an AM company that has a record of delivering solutions for manufacturing at high volumes.
  • Together, the combined company will have a strong financial profile and cash reserves, to support a path to profitability and strategic initiatives: The combination will enable pooling of resources in administration, sales, marketing and R&D and generate efficiencies and cost savings opportunities, while enhancing R&D and innovation capabilities. The combination is anticipated to generate in excess of $30 million in run-rate synergies over the next few years, in addition to previously announced cost savings from each of the two organizations. We believe business operations and capabilities will provide for consolidation opportunities as the combined company focuses on core geographies, including offices, R&D and manufacturing facilities in the multiple U.S. locations, UK, Germany, Switzerland, Netherlands, Italy, Israel and APAC.
