Welcome to the Settlement Website for the 3D Systems Securities Settlement, in the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina (the “Litigation”).

The Court-appointed Lead Plaintiff, KBC Asset Management NV, on behalf of itself and the other members of the Class (defined below), has reached a settlement of the Litigation for $50,000,000 in cash that settles all claims of the Class.

If you are a member of the Class, your rights are affected and you may be eligible for a payment from the Settlement. The Class consists of:

All persons or entities who purchased, or otherwise acquired, shares of 3D Systems common stock between October 29, 2013, through and including May 5, 2015 (“Class Period”), and were damaged thereby, except for certain persons and entities who are excluded from the Class (see Q&A 4 of the Notice).

If you are a member of the Class, in order to be potentially eligible to receive a payment under the settlement, you must have submitted a Proof of Claim no later than July 11, 2018. We are currently finalizing the distribution process and anticipate that payments will be made to Authorized Claimants in February 2020.
