 3-D SYSTEMS ANNOUNCES RESULTS FOR THIRD QUARTER
 VALENCIA, Calif., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- 3-D Systems Inc.


(NASDAQ: TDSSF; Vancouver: TDS.V) today reported a net loss of $3,420,000 or $.19 per share, on sales of $4,280,000 for the third quarter ended Sept. 27, 1991. Results included non-recurring charges of $1,400,000 equal to $.08 per share, related to certain writedowns and accruals. In the corresponding period of the prior year, the company had net income of $15,000 on sales of $7,208,000.
 For the first three quarters of 1991, the company posted a net loss of $7,098,000, or $.43 per share, including the non-recurring charges, on sales of $14,834,000. In the prior year period, 3D had net earnings of $545,000, or $.04 per share, on sales of $21,463,000.
 Arthur B. Sims, chief executive officer, noted that the non- recurring charges relate primarily to accruals for severance obligations and writedowns of certain components of inventory. Sims added that management has implemented further cost reduction programs throughout the company during the fourth quarter. These combined programs are expected to result in cost savings in excess of $3 million during 1992.
 "We have made significant progress in aligning 3-D's costs more closely to current revenue levels," Sims stated. "Looking ahead, we are focusing on building the company's volume through a repositioned sales organization and the exploration of alternate revenue channels."
 Sims added that third quarter revenues, while down slightly from the previous quarter, reflected a higher margin product mix. The company is strengthening management of its European subsidiaries and seeking a partner to support its operations in Japan.
 "We are encouraged by recent sales activity and the evident interest in 3-D's products," he stated. "However, our optimism is tempered by the recession and other factors that continue to influence our operations worldwide."
 Separately, the company reported it has filed an application with the Vancouver Stock Exchange requesting delisting of the company's shares from trading on that exchange. The request was made since the trading market for the company's shares is almost entirely in the United States through NASDAQ. The shares will continue to be quoted on the NASDAQ National Market System following delisting from the Vancouver Stock Exchange.
