“We are pleased with our results as we look to continue to build momentum for the remainder of the year,” said Shai Terem, Markforged’s President and Chief Executive Officer.“ The Digital Forge is helping solve critical manufacturing and supply chain challenges for our customers. We launched new key products and software updates this quarter as part of our strategy to meet the growing demand for our solutions. Our recent debut on the New York Stock Exchange energized and motivated our talented and hardworking team, and I look forward to seeing what we will accomplish together in the remainder of 2021.

Business Highlights
In the second quarter Markforged launched key products aimed at enhancing the Digital Forge to enable customers to better solve for their manufacturing and supply chain problems directly at the point of need.

The introduction of the FX20, our biggest, fastest and most sophisticated 3D printer, is intended to move the Digital Forge into robust production and help customers produce high-strength, higher performance parts for those operating in demanding and regulated industries like aerospace, defense and automotive.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to our financial results determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), we believe that Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, is useful in evaluating the performance of our business.

This non-GAAP measure has limitations as an analytical tool. We do not, nor do we suggest that investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors should also note that the non-GAAP financial measures we use may not be the same non-GAAP financial measures, and may not be calculated in the same manner, as that of other companies, including other companies in our industry.

We recommend that you review the reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure provided in the financial statement tables included below in this press release, and that you not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.

Adjusted EBITDA

We define Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, as net loss and comprehensive loss less net interest income; provision for income taxes; depreciation and amortization expense; and stock-based compensation expense. We monitor Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of our overall business performance, which enables us to analyze our past and future performance without the effects of non-cash items and one-time charges. While we believe that Adjusted EBITDA is useful in evaluating our business, Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that has limitations as an analytical tool. Adjusted EBITDA can be useful in evaluating our performance by eliminating the effect of financing, capital expenditures, and non-cash expenses such as stock-based compensation, however, we may incur such expenses in the future which could impact future results.
