Ricardo to manufacture electric vehicle batteries Posted on 22 Jan 2018 by Marc Hauschild The completion of a EV sports car battery manufacturing concept programme is a milestone in Ricardo's aim to become niche battery manufacturer for high performance hybrids and EVs. Much of the company’s work is still engine-related, but it has diversified into technical and environmental consultancy, software development and niche manufacturing – image courtesy of Ricardo. The completion of a electric vehicle batteries programme is a milestone in the company’s aim to become a niche battery manufacturer – image courtesy of Ricardo. The work of Ricardo’s ‘Performance Products’ division in high performance automotive battery systems builds upon its longstanding reputation for advanced manufacturing and assembly skills and processes. The project is developed through the company’s activities in the production of engines, transmissions and driveline systems. In the first phase of the project recently completed, Ricardo’s manufacturing specialists worked in partnership with the company’s hybrid and electric systems engineering group. The groups were developing an assembly and manufacturing process for an innovative battery pack based on the exacting requirements of the vehicle OEM. Capability of delivering fully assembled batteries In addition, a global supply chain has been established that will ultimately be capable of delivering fully assembled and tested battery systems in annual production quantities ranging from hundreds up to multiple thousands. Ricardo performance products managing director Mark Barge said: “Ricardo has an already well-established capability in the design and engineering of electric and hybrid vehicle battery packs and management systems. “As such, it makes complete sense for us to provide a turn-key service – including battery pack manufacture – for performance electric vehicles, in the same way that we manufacture high performance engines, transmissions and drivelines for premium and motorsport applications powered by combustion engines. “Ricardo has a proven capability in the establishment of complex and high-quality supply chains for high-value, small to medium volume high performance products. “The project just completed is a further demonstration of Ricardo’s aim to become both the engineering and manufacturing partner of choice for the niche battery systems of high performance EVs and hybrids.”

Just bought a few at 705p. Always thought this was a high quality company but until recently I didn't like the price. Results 14th Sept.

To be on a government grant (State Aid) making panel means that Ricardo functions as a Public Authority, this means that it is potentially legally liable under the Human Rights Act 1998 for any decisions that may infringe citizens convention rights, this is a very high risk game. It seems Ricardo's "niche" market is putting client in better financial position through government aid, if this is what this company thrives on then it is a matter of time before it all comes crashing down because the business model seems to be based on politics rather than trade?

"Our mission at Ricardo is a simple one: to play a major part in solving the world's big issues around transportation, pollution, climate change and the efficient use of scarce resources such as oil and water." Really? Do any of the retail investors understand this companies business model? Their main source of income seems to be "Consulting" Division. I am trying to understand this company but unless "Consulting" means pulling chains for clients, I don't get it. Do you? I understand that they sit on grant making panels, they vote to give grants to companies so do they get hired to influence the vote in favor of their clients? And if so, is this the business model? If it is, then it seems it could be an illegal business model. Your views please.

I like the time gap! This is a high quality company. I've looked at it several times with a view to buying but have not yet done so. would certainly buy on weakness.

It's always been quiet - given the picture over the last year or so, it's not that surprising, but what's woken it up again I'm not sure. A bit of news of course, but nothing I wouldn't have thought to cause this sort of rise. Not a holder myself, just follow it from general interest in the sector.

And of course the share price doesn't tell the full story because it's been paying a dividend for most if not all of that time - with dividends reinvested it would have been an even more stellar performance.

When this thread was started in 2003 when share price was less than £3 entitled "I am calling the bottom" who would have foreseen passing a record share price of £9 in 2015 after the worst financial crash in living memory in 2008

interesting that they drew down £9M on a new debt facility to give a cash level of £20M. Could an acquisition be on the horizon?

Indeed -surprised there is not more interest in this quality company. I really need some earnings upgrades to justify buying as the valuation now looking fairly full.

Hey might as well repeat the above. Anyway have a read of today's update. Very solid indeed. What a good company this is. No mention of impact from Euroland slowing or anything negative. Probably because their main customers in autos are global players. Well positioned company which seems to be wining some good new business.

Big volume today - unclear if its Buy/Sell but recent fillings suggest some selling going on I'm holding but will be over the Atlantic when they release tmw, ah well - hoping no nasty surprise on landing but placing stop in case...
