3D Systems Corp announced Thursday a decline in profit for the second quarter, due mainly higher operating expenses and tax provisions.

Total revenues for the quarter surged to $83.61 million from $55.13 million in the prior-year quarter. The company's second-quarter net profit was $8.3 million, resulting in $0.16 earnings per share.


Adjusted income for the quarter rose to $13.95 million or $0.27 per share from $9.72 million or $0.19 per share in the prior-year quarter.


For the quarter, total operating expenses increased to $28.97 million from $17.20 million in the year-ago quarter. The company posted an income tax provision of $1.94 million compared to income tax benefit of $5.48 million last year.

"We entered the third quarter with positive sales momentum reflecting continued strong demand and record backlog. While we may face lingering economic uncertainties in parts of the world, we expect to continue to benefit from robust R&D spending by our customers worldwide," said Abe Reichental, 3D Systems' President and Chief Executive Officer.
