Fathom revenue increases 13.8% year-to-date, with a slight decline in Q3
It’s not exactly a great time for some of the major US-based digital manufacturing service providers. Their actual companies are doing quite well, even given the complex geopolitical and macroeconomic situation, but their appalling stock performance after their recent IPO is generating significant headwinds.
