Periculum Advises ATLAS 3D, Inc. in its Sale to Siemens

Periculum Capital Company, LLC (“Periculum”) is pleased to announce the sale of Atlas 3D, Inc. (“Atlas 3D”) to Siemens. Atlas 3D will join Siemens Digital Industries Software, where its solutions will expand Siemens’ additive manufacturing software capabilities. Periculum acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Atlas 3D. The transaction builds upon Periculum’s expertise in advising early-stage technology companies.

Headquartered in Plymouth, Indiana, Atlas 3D develops software that works with direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) printers to automatically provide design engineers with the optimal print orientation and requisite support structures for additive parts. Atlas 3D’s lead product, the cloud-based, GPU-accelerated Sunata™ software, is able to identify how best to orient and support parts for metal 3D printing by simulating more than 100 intelligently selected orientations in near real time. Using advanced thermal distortion analysis, the Sunata™ solution heightens efficiency and lowers costs by replacing traditional trial-and-error production methods with advanced computer simulations, while enhancing customers’ ability to produce metal parts in a repetitive, high-quality manner.

Atlas selected Periculum to execute a customized process to select a partner that would meet the objectives of the shareholders, including achieving a successful valuation and providing an opportunity for Atlas 3D employees on a larger platform. Periculum had discussions with a targeted group of global, strategic companies within the additive manufacturing market. Siemens differentiated itself given its additive manufacturing expertise, robust resources and capabilities, and the opportunity it will provide for Atlas 3D employees. Both parties are looking forward to integrating Atlas’ Sunata™ software with Siemens’ robust additive manufacturing solutions to further establish Siemens’ market leadership.

Chad Barden, Chief Executive Officer of Atlas 3D, reflected on the positive outcome saying, “The Periculum team helped us secure an outstanding partner in Siemens. Periculum’s guidance and experience was valuable throughout the process. We are excited to partner with Siemens.”

“We welcome Atlas 3D to the Siemens community as the newest member of our additive manufacturing team. Our solutions industrialize additive manufacturing for large enterprises, 3D printing service bureaus, design firms, and CAD designers,” said Zvi Feuer, Senior Vice President, Manufacturing Engineering Software of Siemens Digital Industries Software.
