Should 3D Systems Acquire Formlabs? (Fabbaloo)
3D Systems Corporation (NYSE:DDD)We recently noted a pause until September 3rd in the lawsuit between 3D Systems Corporation (NYSE:DDD) and Formlabs (and Kickstarter) regarding potential violation of 3D Systems patents in Formlab’s Form 1 personal 3D printer, which was massively launched on Kickstarter some months ago. Formlabs took quick advantage of expiring basic patents on the initial 3D print technology that 3D Systems grew from over twenty years ago. However, 3D Systems Corporation (NYSE:DDD) believes that other aspects of the Form 1 violate patents that are still in force. The pause, according to court documents, says the parties are involved in “settlement discussions”. One of the possible outcomes is that 3D Systems ends up acquiring Formlabs. Could that really happen?
