I am not a holder of Xaar but have an interest in 3D printing. The high speed SLS that they are developing looks very similar to the HP Fusion Jet printing. Both print a dark Heat absorbing) liquid onto the surface of a powder substrate (usually Nylon) and then use a heat source to sinter (melt) the printed area. This produces a grey/black Nylon part. It is a bit faster than traditional SLS but unlikely to produce as strong or detailed a part. TCT magazine is reporting "The new company will leverage Xaar’s High Speed Sintering technology and industrial piezo inkjet printheads, along with Stratasys' commercial and market expertise." Personally I would like to see Xaar develop printheads for use in Polyjet printers similar to the ones Stratasys already make and preferably in competition. Their collaboration with BASF to develop photo polymer jetting looked as though that might be happening.

I have had a quick look at Stratasys and Autodesk (referred to in my previous post). Stratasys has proved a poor investment over the last 5 years, down from $111 to $20 and is currently loss-making. Even so it has a market cap of c$10 billion. Autodesk has a market cap of c$30 billion; I have not looked any further. I have much more work to do !

No details are given of what Stratasys is contributing to the joint venture in return for its 15% and rights to a further 15%. I have fond memories of DELCAM, an AIM company taken over a few years ago by the Americans at a handsome price. I think the buyer was called Autoserve or perhaps Autodesk and it was a leader in 3D printing. As Tonsil says, the Americans are keen on this business and I expect that Stratasys shares sell on a P/E of about 30 with a very high market cap. I am going to look on their web-site for further information.

So XAR forms a partnership with leading 3D printing company and . . . Nothing!Wait til the US opens this will be more interesting to the US where 3D manufacturing is still hot

Why all of a sudden is it going to get taken over? Things are set to get worse.

renewed1 I think the problem is they would have to spend a fortune in legal fees protecting their IP on a global scale. If you have a new idea these days, it's probably best getting it into the market place and selling asap before it is copied. You obviously still need patent in place so that someone else does not take legal title over all your work. If anyone is infringing Xaar's patents, they could be in for a shock in the future as I believe patent holders can receive years/decades retrospective damages. So maybe patents still have value even if they are infringed, particularly if for instance, a bigger company purchased Xaar, one that has the resources to take legal action against any (if any) infringers of patents. Has Xaar ever taken action against anyone for patent infringement? Are there 'no win, no fee' lawyers in this field?

Its rare to come up with a unique process that can be patented. Most advances are made by small incremental improvements and additions to pre existing technology and any avenues for patents are then very constricted and often end up serving more for marketing and sales patter than anything else.

What I never understand with Xaar is that they spend a fortune on research and development come up with great new products that are patented but within 18 months they have competition from cheaper products.If its that easy to copy without infringing patents why do they spend so much on R & D?

The IP alone is probably worth more than market cap. That's what someone will be after.

After today's price fall the EV is circa just 9.25 which puts it into value territory. Certainly puts them in the frame for any potential acquisitor. No position but taking a closer look.

amt I would not be suprised as the £ is so weak as well, so everything in UK looks cheap and going to get even cheaper if we have a hard brexit.

Market cap sub 200 million with cash of 40 odd million. These now look cheap despite the problems.
