Laser or optical communication is an exciting technology that’s been in the works on both commercial and government sides for many years. We’re getting to an inflection point where we’re seeing satellites that would normally be talking to each through radio frequencies, or RF, now able to talk in the optical frequencies, or lasers.

Above taken from a recent defence article.

Yet another revenue stream for GHH.

Been big price retrace of 20% from early summer - suspect this is probably over done

Against all of that background, to what do you attribute the continued weight of downtrend in the share price?

At 650p I thought we were away and heading for £8...

The Ministry of Defence has issued a Prior Information Notice to industry, signalling an intent to “accelerate and exploit at pace DEW as an emerging technology.”
The notice serves as an advisory for a potential upcoming contract to tender for the MOD’s Directed Energy Weapons (DEW) programme.

According to the official DEW Industry Briefing Note 1, the programme aims to “deliver a range of benefits for the UK connected to DEW by leading and commissioning the required work.”

It specifically focuses on the Transition Phase of the programme, highlighting three main DEW projects:

“Laser Directed Energy Weapon (LDEW) in a Maritime Air Defence application”
“LDEW in Ground Based Air Defence applications”
“RFDEW in Counter-Unmanned Air System (C-UAS) applications in the Land Domain”
The DEW programme will “build on the parallel DEW Capability Demonstrator Portfolio delivered by UK industry through Team Hersa,” with a six-month User Experimentation Phase scheduled to begin in 2024.

For the transition phase, the MOD is considering establishing a “new DEW Capability Development Framework Arrangement,” aimed at delivering “individual Transition Phase Work Packages for each of the DEW projects.”

This framework will have an “estimated total value of approximately £150 million over a three-year period from FY 24/25,” and aims to provide a “flexible and agile route to market for DEW Transition Phase requirements.”

The Prior Information Notice also states that the MOD is in the “early stages of developing a Procurement Strategy,” and is inviting industry to share their views via a Request for Information (RFI) Questionnaire. Responses to the RFI will be used to “inform the DEW Procurement and Commercial strategy” and are not part of any competitive procedure.

An Industry Day or series of Industry Days are being considered “for late 2023 and/or early 2024” to provide further details on the DEW programme.

Pulsed laser scanning lidar is a core technology for autonomous driving and robotic mobility. Herein, a directional light pulse is backscattered by a reflective object and the elapsed time between emission and detection of the pulse is used to calculate depth. These direct time-of-flight measurements of returning light pulses enable the three-dimensional imaging of complex scenes.

GHH design and manufacture lidar systems and sub systems and this technology will be in high demand going forward.

Another clever acquisition enabling GHH in their evolution from component supplier to end product supplier.

Semiconductors are a key enabler for many technologies. As devices become more compact, the footprint of components gets smaller. To keep pace, laser technology is using ever shorter wavelength sources.

As experts in the optical development of semiconductor processing, GHH are innovating in laser based technologies to bring benefits to manufacturing applications, including laser cutting, drilling, marking and measuring.

Due to reshoring our microchip industry this arm of GHH is in more demand than ever.

Yesterday from Investors Champion Gooch & Housego: another acquisition, but is it too soon?Gooch & Housego (AIM:GHH), the specialist manufacturer of optical components and systems, has acquired US-based GS Optics for up to $15.7m.GS Optics specialises in the custom design and manufacture of precision polymer optics for use in the biomedical, machine vision and analytical instrument markets, as well as military and civilian night-vision and visible-range sighting applications. The acquisition expands the Company's presence in the Life Sciences sector and extends its capabilities into polymer optics.In its financial year ended 31 December 2022 GS Optics generated revenue of c.$10m and adjusted EBITDA of c.$1.5m, implying a multiple of 9.3x. Nearly 6 months after its year end it's a puzzle why those numbers are still only approximate!The acquisition is expected to be marginally earnings enhancing in the first full financial year of G&H's ownership.With new CEO Charlie Peppiatt only assuming control in September 2022 and plenty of tidying up to do, we are somewhat surprised that GHH has leaped to acquire. GHH makes interesting things, but surely it needs to work out how to produce these more efficiently and enhance those meagre margins before making yet more acquisitions in overseas territories to complicate the picture.Reported operating margins back in 2013 were 14%. After plenty of acquisitions and heaps of capital investment, revenues since then have more than doubled, but margins have halved and that was before the pandemic interrupted things! Return on equity has also declined from 14% to low single digits. As is so often the case, while considerably bigger, GHH appears to be a far lesser business.Let's hope Mr Peppiatt can get things back on track.

It's often mentioned to get into shovels and pickaxes at the beginning of the gold rush well here's the opportunity to get into GHH at a fantastic time just before AI takes off as GHH build the lasers that are crucial for making those AI chips.

Gooch & Housego plc issued an update on trading for the six months ended 31 March 2023. Group revenue for the six month period is expected to be circa £71.0 million (31 March 2022: £54.1 million) supported by favourable exchange rate movements and the effects of price increases to offset cost input inflation. The outlook is solid, as at 31 March 2023 the Group’s order book stood at £124.4 million (31 March 2022: £119.9 million), an increase of 3.8% and provides good coverage for expected second half revenues. The Group’s commercial team remains focused on passing on higher costs through pricing, the b/s remains strong with net debt circa £19m. Full year trading is expected to be in line with management's previously reported expectations, a return to statutory profit and EPS around 29p. Valuation is improving, but momentum is still a major cloud with share price still in a 21-month correction. GHH remains a share to monitor for the time being...
