Good questions koetser. I think the main issues here are that the rating got ahead of reality so was always heading for a fall once growth slowed. At 1600/1700p the multiple was well over 20x. Unlike say Renishaw this company has hit some headwinds notably Japan and Russia which in fairness are rather outside their control. 1. Gross gearing and net gearing are over 100%-this reflects not only Andor but other acquisitions such as RMG and Roentgenalytik in Germany. Given these deals it was surprising revenues had markedly slowed by mid 2014.I wonder if these deals were to mask slowing organic growth? Interest cover id OK so we are not looking at massive stress but it clearly limits options for more 'deals'. 2. I think if the Andor deal was done today the price would be rather lower -the business cost £175m cash and significantly increased the company's borrowings via two new facilities, one of £100m and one of £60m. Think this share will move sideways for a while. Bottom line is that is worth much less than half of what it was despite the acquisition of ~Andor.

Pathetic management -should be fired forthwith. Absurd acquisition-paid way over the odds. Now heavily indebted -you couldn't make it up.

StockMarketWire.com - Investec has downgraded its recommendation on tech group Oxford Instruments [LON:OXIG] to 'hold' from 'buy' in a note to investors, today. The broker said: "The group still requires a resumption of growth in demand to lift revenues and margins, but patience and nerve will be needed as net debt approaches covenant limits before falling again from September 2015." Investec also made a hefty cut to its target price, which now stands at 815 pence a share (previously 1,280 pence), implying a somewhat modest forecast total return of 5.5 per cent. The stock has fallen by almost 30 per cent since releasing its latest trading statement, on 22 January - See more at: hxxp://www.stockmarketwire.com/article/4967716/Oxford-Instruments-downgraded-by-Investec.html#sthash.hPqSrAif.dpuf

Probably take another profit warning to hit 600p, could crumble to 700p on disinterest.

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.
