Yes I know AE. I'm sure Strix have a good handle on how many they have sold. I'm just questioning how anyone can know the global market size for all products sold. It can only be an estimate. Therefore, I don't read too much in 1% incremental drops in market share as that could just be attributable to errors in determining the total market.

It's a bit of a finger in the air exercise though epo001 - how does anyone know how many kettles with controls get sold over any time frame.

Dunno about 70% but just looked at the past few trading updates/results on hargreaves lansdown and in chronological order the market share reported was 40%, 39% and 38%. Or about a 5% decline in six months. I am nicely in profit on a November purchase and have this one classed as an income share so not too worried yet.

Based on some great points made here on IP protection I met them and they are basically a chinese company now. They will build a new factory in China and will be successful in Chinese courts. Its on the wrong multiple.

Bought in this morning. Great earner, >100% ROCE, superb value and unwavering IP defence/zero recall reputation tricky for competition to replicate. I expect this to go much higher.

Solid H1 trading update ! 18 July 2018 Strix Group Plc Trading Update Strix Group Plc (AIM: KETL), the AIM listed global leader in the design, manufacture and supply of kettle safety controls and other complementary water temperature management components, is pleased to announce the following trading update for the 6 month period ended 30 June 2018. The Group continued to perform well during H1 2018 and the Board confirms that the Company is on track to report results in line with market expectations for the full year. Cash flow conversion remains strong, continuing to support our dividend policy. During the period, the Group maintained its global market leading share of c.38% with particularly strong performance in North America. The new U9 series of controls has performed positively with more than 60 specifications, securing order volumes of c.1m during the period with more than 20% destined for the less regulated market as we target further share growth within this segment. Focus continued on the development of new products within the hot water on demand category using our mature, patented heating technology to fulfil key consumer insights identified from independent research. Aqua Optima experienced a strong performance with market share in the key UK market achieving c.20%, a record level, due to increased coverage in the UK retail sector and additional distribution in Central Europe. The Group continued to defend its intellectual property rights and successfully settled an infringement claim in China for 19 electronic appliances during the period and had five webpages taken down on Amazon across their European platform for products that infringed Strix electronic kettle patent. The Group will be announcing full interim results for the 6 month period ending 30 June 2018 on Wednesday 19 September 2018. An analyst briefing will be held at 09.30hrs.

Cheers Hastings. I first took a look at Strix at the end of November when the shareprice was circa 140p but passed due to the high level of debt. However their results in March and the recent successful IP legal action in China brought it back onto my radar and a further prompt induced me to take a modest, initial position @155.2p yesterday. Nice article in The Cambridge News - hope you don't mind but I've pasted a summary below, from the above link, of your comments on the forward broker projections for quick and easy future reference. "Looking ahead to the year in progress sees expectations from broker Zeus for pre-tax profits of £29.1m rising to £31.6m next year, providing for EPS of 12.6p in the latter, which puts the stock on a forward PER just south of 12. Although Strix is a mature business and arguably does not fall into a classic growth play that has come to market, equally, it does have attractions for earnings appreciation in the coming years and the rating may not not prove to be expensive, particularly as a muted total yearly dividend of 7p provides for a decent yield. Admittedly there is at present a hefty chunk of debt circa £45m on the balance sheet which will arguably flag up as red for some watchers. This is as a result of the fund that brought it to market having exited with their rewards although it is forecast to reduce markedly in the coming years, as the company continues to demonstrate what appears to be an impressive ability to generate cash. Strong cash generation and profitability backed up by a progressive dividend policy are the immediate attractions though, whilst the Isle Of Man based company also enjoys what is a very favourable regime on corporation tax. Those sitting on the sidelines watching may prefer to see firm evidence of the debt reducing to more palatable levels, although, such a delivery as anticipated would go some way to driving further support for the share price."

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0b42z87 John Taylor on being an inventor The Life Scientific John Crawshaw Taylor is a prolific inventor who specialises in designing and manufacturing thermostatic controls. His ingenious integrated control system is found in in one billion electric kettles worldwide, enabling kettles to switch off automatically when the water boils, stopping the element from boiling dry and preventing plastic kettles from catching fire under a worst case scenario. 600 million of his safety controls for the small electric motors have been sold to date, and are used mainly to prevent the motor in windscreens wipers from overheating. He talks to Jim Al-Khalili about his struggle with severe dyslexia at school, the art of inventing and why he doesn't believe in selling an idea. Producer: Anna Buckley.

Good to see that their Patents are strong enough to result in successful claims against those infringing them...
