tick up could just be due to good manufacturing output data , low pound still impacting. hTTps://
Ive said on here before this company has always been run for the benefit of the directors. I would love to know how many of the 78m shares have been dolled out to directors over the years!!!
Volume is very thin, so it could all reverse pretty quickly. Let's hope not.
Market doesn't seem to agree ocso..... Does seem that there is some desire for shares all of a sudden. Wonder what is driving this? DL
Well as former employee I still have very good contacts over there. Have to say that it is not looking good. Xaar struggles with competition and the new products ( Xaar2001 ) is too expensive. Profit warning few weeks ago, I can't see that by 2020 the revenue will be £200 millions as the CEO promised.
News flow here very thin. Anyone aware of any gossip? Any views on where the share price is likely to be heading in the medium/long term?
This sounds good. wonder if the company is linked to the watch maker? I've had one for 40 years and is a brilliant watch.
RNS -agreement
Any recent news on Xaar?
What's with the 1 share trade?? DL
Given how much Xaar spend on R & D and patents I never understand how competitors are able to underprice them within a year or two of their new products rolling out.
N+1 Singer now go for £18.8m EBITDA for the year about to end, rising to £21.7m next year and £27.9m the year after. The dividend is 10.3p this year, rising to 10.8p and 11.4p. Obviously a disappointing update, but the share price should be reasonably well supported given XAR's place as a globally technology-leading company. As others have said, we may see some predatory interest given the lows. This is a relatively small holding for me given the timing of XAR's recovery and transformational status with all the new technologies being developed, but there may well now be top-up opportunities here.
Eastbourne Might even hit today looking at L2
Sub £3.50 over the next few weeks.
Sure the share price will be hammered but it might provide opportunity for a takeover. Low price and weak sterling maje ir the perfect time to strike.
Fair point but still I expect the market to punish the share price today & not trust the company until it's actions match its words. However I will top up as I am a long term believer in the future of this company.
Not way below expectations but below expectations. Lets get a sense of proportion. 2020 vision still in tact irs how the trajectory to get there is the issue. Expect the share price will go down but already down over 10% in the last few weeks.
Disappointing trading statement as way below market expectations. I suspect the market will be ruthless in its reaction. Hopefully an over reaction creates a buying opportunity.

More coverage of XAR and 3D printing here - much the same as the article above, but this opening paragraph is a neat summary of where XAR have now got to: Https:// "Xaar Focuses on 3D Printing Transforming from Prototyping to Volume Production Back in 2015, Xaar, which is based in the UK and develops and manufactures inkjet technology and piezoelectric, drop-on-demand industrial printheads, jumped headfirst into the 3D printing world a year after helping FACTUM develop special inkjet technology for its 3D printer. The company hasn’t looked back since, announcing the creation of a new Xaar 3D Centre in Nottingham, which just had its official opening in March, and becoming a member of an Innovate UK-funded consortium to develop AMT’s automated, intelligent post-processing machine. Add in a new Materialise 3D software bundle option and a new printhead, and it’s safe to say that Xaar is making big things happen."
Important news here re XAR moving 3D printing to volume production which is worth reproducing in full - more to come later this month Https:// "1 November, 2017 - 12:47 By Kate Sweeney Xaar technology nudges 3D printing closer to volume production Technology from Xaar in Cambridge promises to move 3D printing closer to volume production. The company will go into detail at the InPrint show in Munich later this month. Chris Noble, a 3D engineer at the Science Park company, will tell delegates how inkjet – and Xaar technology, in particular – is transforming 3D Printing from a prototype industry to manufacturing at scale. During his conference talk on November 15, Noble will explore the benefits and growth of 3D printing in general and the key enablers to accelerate the industry’s growth. He will also explain why digital inkjet, and specifically Xaar’s TF Technology and High Laydown Technology, is at the heart of the solution, delivering both a fast and a scalable 3D manufacturing process which is robust as well as economical. 3D Printing as a manufacturing methodology encompasses a range of processes and applications all focusing on building parts up, usually layer by layer. It is a highly attractive methodology, not just because it eliminates the need for tooling, but also because it provides superior geometric freedom, giving product designers much more capability, whilst substantially reducing product design and production lead time. 3D Printing also enables customisation of products to individual consumers, decentralisation of manufacturing and reduction of storage space required for spare parts – not to mention the time, environmental and cost benefits delivered with these. Noble says: “To date, 3D printing technologies have often been used to produce prototypes and one-offs. Whilst for many businesses globally there is a definite value to be had in this, the opportunities with inkjet technology are now creating even greater excitement and buzz around 3D printing and its potential to deliver reliable, repeatable systems for high volume manufacturing.”
EPS have launched their first new product since acquisition by XAR - they're looking for a very nice $16m of sales in its first year: Https:// Extract: "EPS launches Roto-Jet By Max Goldbart, Tuesday 31 October 2017 Xaar subsidiary Engineered Printing Solutions (EPS) has launched the Roto-Jet cylindrical object inkjet printer for mid-range promotional applications. Launched and becoming commercially available at last month’s Pack Expo in Las Vegas, the Roto-Jet will be handed its European debut at InPrint, Munich in mid-November. Targeting 20 US and 20 European sales in its first year, the machine is priced from around $400,000 (£300,000) in standard configuration or $440,000 with varnish option. The Roto-Jet represents EPS’ first major launch since it was acquired by Xaar last year, which signalled the beginning of an ambitious push by the Cambridge-headquartered printhead manufacturer to double turnover by 2020. The strategy also saw it open a dedicated 3D printing centre. Xaar will be announcing a new product of its own at InPrint, with more information available nearer the time. etc"
And yet another innovative new product - note the comments about healthy sales since launch: Http:// "Wallpen Colours the World using Xaar Technology An innovative and highly practical solution that uses inkjet technology from Xaar to create designs on indoor and outdoor walls has been launched in Germany by Wallpen GmbH. The Wallpen printer is a patented, mobile, large format UV printer system for printing pictures and graphics direct to walls and vertical surfaces. It prints in brilliant, durable and high-definition colours directly onto a wide variety of substrates including plaster, wallpaper, wood, stone, plastic, tiles, glass, metal and concrete. wallpen 128 Following extensive market research, the Wallpen printer was developed over two years and is underpinned by 15 patents, enabling the creation of a unique and high performance printer. Incorporating a four-colour Xaar 128 print bar, the Wallpen printer utilises a rigid and lightweight aluminium structure to print the image. At the same time, it scans across the surface using a laser to adjust for surface imperfections and undulations. Therefore, the printer automatically and continuously adjusts the print arm for any changes in the surface of the substrate onto which it prints. Able to create colourful designs on walls up to almost four meters high, with no limit to the printable width, the Wallpen printer can cover up to four square metres per hour at a resolution of 370 x 600 DPI. It is compact, fits in a mid-size car, can be easily transported and can be set up by one person in just five minutes. The Wallpen is the brainchild of Wallpen Managing Director Andreas Schmidt, who specially developed the vertical printer to have a wide range of possible applications. These include printing designs onto vertical surfaces in public spaces like shopping malls, bringing colour to hospitals and other municipal buildings and creating displays on museum or office corridor walls. The Wallpen printer is aimed at painters, decorators and interior designers, as well as sign makers, advertising agencies, graphic designers and companies in many more sectors. “Since the launch, we’ve had a great deal of interest in the printer from a wide variety of industries, and sales are already looking very healthy,” comments Andreas. “The Xaar 128 printheads are central to our product because of their ability to jet UV ink, and also because they can be easily incorporated into a small and lightweight printhead unit. As a consequence, Xaar technology is playing a major role in the Wallpen printer’s success.” The Xaar 128 is a leading 17mm piezoelectric drop-on-demand printhead for the Wide-Format Graphics sector, and is ideal for applications such as printing graphics on a range of surfaces, as well as outdoor and indoor signage. Light and powerful, it is also particularly suited to applications where printhead weight and size are important considerations – a key part of its relevance to the Wallpen printer."
Back from hols, and great to see XAR continue to rise. I thought this news whilst I was away was interesting: Https:// "16 October, 2017 - 13:15 By Kate Sweeney Cambridge University graduate inspires new Xaar technology A Cambridge University graduate working for digital ink jet specialist Xaar has seen three years of research culminate in the launch of a new technology at two overseas expos. Senior engineer Nick Jackson’s work was central to the official unveiling of Xaar's new High Laydown Technology at Asia's largest ceramics show – Ceramics China – as well as Labelexpo 2017, the world's largest label printing show which was staged in Brussels. Jackson, whose role is in advanced applications, joined the Cambridge Science Park company in 2008 after graduating from Clare College with a Natural Science degree the previous year. High Laydown Technology can be used with the hi-tech Xaar 1003 and Xaar 2001+ inkjet printheads to print a range of textured effects on product packaging and labels, as well as ceramic tiles. For example, in the perfume industry, where packaging is a key element of the overall customer experience, a raised varnish effect can be printed over the characters of the product name to make it stand out and grab the attention of potential purchasers. Other applications include warning triangles required on all hazardous products, and Braille. At this year’s Labelexpo and Ceramics China trade shows, the ability to add effects was a major talking point for many of the show’s exhibitors and visitors. During his time at Xaar, Jackson has built up an expertise in developing advanced printhead waveforms. These are electrical drive signals applied to the channel walls inside a printhead to create a movement, which in turn produces the acoustic (pressure) waves used by many of Xaar’s printheads to eject the ink or fluid from the nozzles. Over the last few years, he has been investigating the impact on printhead performance of different electrical signals. High Laydown Technology was borne out of this work. Jackson said: “Since I joined Xaar, I’ve had the opportunity to work on a number of very interesting projects but this has to be the one that sticks out for me. “The scope and potential impact of this new technology is significant and I’m particularly hopeful that High Laydown Technology can increase the use of Braille on packaging by removing some of the cost barriers for use.”
