Their stock has plummeted, now they've lost a court case. I'm sure some said this was bound to happen--spread too thin after their acquisition spending spree and so forth. 3DSystems has lost $11M in arbitration to Ron Barranco, creator of Print3D acquired my 3DSystems a few years ago. Of course, 3DSystems will fight it.
"According to Barranco, however, not only did 3D Systems pay him nothing under the earnout provision, they ended up firing him a mere 20 months after the deal was signed, offering no explanation for the termination.
Understandably frustrated, in 2013 Barranco decided to sue 3D systems for violating the terms of their purchase agreement. The case was sent to arbitration, and during hearings on June 22-26 and modified hearings on October 16th in Charlotte, North Carolina, the court ruled that 3D Systems was at fault, and ordered them to pay Barranco a total of $11, 281, 681.46 in damages. The payout of $11 million includes total damages of $7.3 million, legal fees and expense of $2.3 million, and $1.7 million in prejudgment interest."
