Why NNDM stock has been rising

Nano Dimension has raised money through share offerings. In January, the company completed a direct offering of 35 million shares in a sale that raised more than $330 million. Nano Dimension’s market capitalization has increased significantly over the last year because of new share offerings and significant appreciation in the share price. The stock price has been surging without any company-specific news.

On Feb. 16, Nano Dimension said that it has entered into agreements with investors for the sale of 39.1 million ADS at a price of $12.80 apiece pursuant to a registered direct offering.

NNDM stock is down about 12 percent in the pre-market trading session on Feb. 16 because the shares are being offered at a discount to the current market price of $15.60. Tesla and NIO took advantage of the stock price surge by offering new shares several times in 2020.

Outlook for NNDM

Last week, NNDM CEO Yoav Stern provided an update to its shareholders. The company expects to report sales of $3.4 million in 2020 compared to $7.1 million in 2019. The significant decline in sales is mainly due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which impacted the sales of its DragonFly LDM systems. As of Jan. 31, Nano Dimension had cash reserves of $990 million and no debt.

In a press release, Stern said, “COVID-19 is still in full force in Europe and the U.S. Our working assumption is that once it phases out, we should experience a sling shot effect on sales as a result of the removal of restrictions on capital spending, supplier visits and travel by our customers and prospects. In preparation for this stage, we have planned an aggressive go-to-market strategy, supported by our cash reserves.”

Should I buy the dip in NNDM stock?

Nano Dimension stock is a risky bet because the company’s outstanding share count has increased significantly over the last year. The company’s market capitalization has increased from $10.6 million in 2019 to $3.2 billion on Feb. 12. The existing shareholders should be aware of the share dilution effects as the company issues additional shares. New share offerings usually boost the company’s valuation instead of gains in its stock price.

Nano Dimension trades at an NTM (next-12-month) EV-to-revenue multiple of almost 265.2x compared to a multiple of around 5x in August 2020.
