FT - 22/1/15: ....Sales in Russia typically represent about 5 per cent of the group’s annual revenues. Shares in the company were down 27.5 per cent to 797.5p in afternoon trading. Analysts at Investec said the profit warning was a “further significant disappointment” from the company. Oxford Instruments has had a difficult year as adverse foreign exchange movements and a squeeze on scientific research government spending weighed on the group. “A significant downgrade in estimates is likely to be compounded by derating, since shareholders have been looking forward to a return to growth after a challenging year,” said Michael Blogg at Investec. Oxford Instruments, which provides equipment for Nasa’s Mars Curiosity rover, said profits would also be affected by lower than expected sales in Japan, noting that its forecast of recovery in the Japanese market had not yet occurred. The company, which acquired Andor Technology, the Belfast-based camera maker, last year for £158m, said it would look to reduce costs, which could include the closure of factories and job cuts. It expects to achieve cost savings of £6m in 2015-16. Scott Cagehin, analyst at Numis, said lower forecasts would weigh on confidence, but added: “We still see the potential from the nano exposure and look to pick up stock on weakness albeit appreciative that recovery in both confidence and the shares may take time.” The group said it still expected growth next year, with order intake in Japan improving.

Just bare in mind that the current market cap would see them automatically relegated from the FTSE 250 at the next review which is early March. If Mr Market sees that as a done deal they will continue to sell it down.

Thanks alter. Net Debt £135m with only £35m profit , not good. Current Market cap looks high, value should be closer to £300m, so possible 25% reduction in the share price to come. I've gone short.

Comments by Investec as published in The Guardian "Today’s third quarter update points to full-year adjusted pretax profit 20% short of our below-consensus estimate (and 26% below for the second half of 2015), which is a further significant disappointment following very poor interims in November. Oxford Instruments is a ‘growth stock’ becalmed by very unhelpful trading conditions and it risks being de-rated, due to the delayed resumption of growth, margins that are going backwards and substantial balance sheet leverage. Our estimates, valuation and recommendation are all under review."

the one encouraging statement today is We expect to see the Group grow next year and beyond as we execute on our nanotechnology strategy. Of course there's still a chance this optimism will be misplaced but £4 looks as pessimistic as it can be so is probably just wishful thinking. I prefer to wait of the dust to settle and await the actual results before trying to value the stock.

Looking for an entry point below £4 in next 12 months. Don't think I'll be disappointed.

Taking 2015 estimates into account it would appear that normalised eps will be back to the level in 2012. so agree with AE: view above. Realistic p/e should be lower at say 14 - 15 particularly given the level of DEBT - According to refs is was £140M in 2014 accounts [88.7%] Need however to do more research on products as to what percentage are MUST have (i.e. unique with no easily substitutable competitors] so far as customers are concerned and which are at major risk for competitive activity.

Arrgh down £3. 22 January 2015 Release date: 7am 22(nd) January 2015 Oxford Instruments plc Quarter 3 Trading Update 22 January 2015 Oxford Instruments plc, a leading provider of high technology tools and systems for industry and research, today issues a Quarter 3 Trading Update which covers the period from 1st October 2014 to date. In the third quarter organic orders and revenues were similar to the same period last year. In addition, Andor the acquisition made in the fourth quarter last year continues to perform well. Significant orders, both taken in the year and forecast to be taken in Quarter 4, are for delivery to Russia. Recent tightening in the application of trade sanctions and, in particular the cancelling of certain export licences mean we no longer expect to convert theses orders to sales. We now assume that no sales can be made to Russia for the remainder of this year and we are also assuming no sales to Russia next year. In addition, our forecast of recovery in the Japanese market has not yet occurred. The effects of Russia and Japan, combined with weaker trading in our short lead-time Industrial Analysis business means that, whilst we expect revenues for the second half to be ahead of the same period last year, we believe they will fall short of market expectations. We now anticipate adjusted profit before tax for the current year will be approximately GBP35 million. In response to these challenges we are taking action to reduce costs and improve efficiency. Subject to consultation this may result in the closure of some sites and a reduction in headcount. This project aims to produce a cost saving of GBP6 million in the next financial year. The one off, cash costs of achieving these savings are expected to be in the region of GBP5 million which will be taken as an exceptional item in the current year. Whilst it is not possible to predict when the situation in Russia will recover, order intake in Japan is improving. We expect to see the Group grow next year and beyond as we execute on our nanotechnology strategy. End A quick look looks like a classic market overreaction to me , so in cavalier fashion just added a lump at 808.

trading update worse than I expected: www.investegate.co.uk/oxford-instruments--oxig-/rns/trading-statement/201501220700208176C/ In addition, our forecast of recovery in the Japanese market has not yet occurred. The effects of Russia and Japan, combined with weaker trading in our short lead-time Industrial Analysis business means that, whilst we expect revenues for the second half to be ahead of the same period last year, we believe they will fall short of market expectations. We now anticipate adjusted profit before tax for the current year will be approximately £35 million. back of envelope calculation suggest eps will be around 47p so currently on p/e of about 17.4. Still looks overvalued in the short term IMO.
