|Behaving very peculiarly, something is up?!|
|Makes sense now. Thanks for clarifying it.|
|yep,completely wrong (not unusual) they have 77.7M shares and a mkt cap £293M.
I thgt it looked cheap, lol! Especially as they have around £50M in cash!!|
|Thanks wallywoo. Don't understand the figures above as there are only 7.77m shares according to advfn. But if you total up the figures you posted it comes to approx. 42m. Has to be an explanation for the discrepency, have advfn got it wrong?|

|10,000 buy, weird moves are taking place here?|
|So I guess as there are so few shares mostly are owned by the Directors and private individuals? Can't believe there are no institutional holders?|
|Xaar does not publish any information relating to shareholdings on their website. According to the FT there are no institutional shareholders in Xaar either.|
|There are only 7.77m shares in issue. Can anyone tell me the breakdown as to the major share holders and how many in freefloat please?|
|So few shares, Fez77 you may be right as it could be ripe for a takeover at this so low valuation. Anyway buy and tuck away.|
|The former I would suggest at present even though I think they are a potential takeover target at some future date.|
|Jolly good do you think this is One or two institutions or professionals taking advantage of the bombed out shareprice for longer term or something a little more interesting that could be afoot?|
my retirement fund
|Great guns! I'm in profit! Small one but a profit nevertheless!|
|No wonder L&G topped up recently.|
|Got to be worth another £1 on the share price|
|Ultimately, 3D printing is going to replace so many manufacturing processes. Definitely a big thing for the future development of manufacturing.|
|XAR's new 3D centre has just opened in Nottingham:
"Customised running shoes are made from 3D printers at Xaar's Nottingham lab
Cricket bats, trainer soles and aeroplane parts are some of the everyday objects that could be built on an industrial scale using 3D printers at a new Nottingham laboratory.
Xaar, one of the world leaders in industrial inkjet technology, has launched a new 3D printing team at its latest base in Nottingham Science Park.
It will now aim to create parts up to 100 times faster than previous industrial 3D printing processes, using high-speed sintering (HSS) machines for volume manufacturing.
Professor Neil Hopkinson, who invented the technology in 2003, said: "3D printing has traditionally been good for making very complicated shapes of one-offs or a few-offs but aren't scalable to high production.
"But I've invented new technology that can make very complex shapes at high production volumes."
"The laboratory, which was launched with an opening ceremony this past Wednesday, will be working in a number of different fields, 3D printing parts for the aerospace, medical, and even sports markets. So far, Xaar’s lab has already made a customizable 3D printed heel structure for running shoes, which is on display in Xaar’s office.
In addition to the new Nottingham lab, Xaar has also established a base in Copenhagen where 3D software is being developed. The inkjet printhead company’s foray into 3D technologies is reportedly part of its 2020 strategy to reach £220m in sales."
"HSS technology uses infrared heaters and inkjet printheads to 3D print products, using polymer powder materials, and is engineered to perform at lower costs and higher speeds than other 3D printing processes, making the technology a good fit for companies who need to 3D print in high volume. The company optimistically looks to HSS as a key to taking additive manufacturing into the mainstream, which is a goal of many companies these days.
“There is no doubt that High Speed Sintering technology can transform 3D Printing from a low volume prototyping solution to a mainstream manufacturing process. The step change to high volume manufacturing will be most efficiently achieved through partnerships with committed stakeholders across the supply chain. Our new 3D Centre in Nottingham is the ideal location for such partnerships to flourish,” said Professor Hopkinson."|
|Nice. Plenty of mileage here.|
|Legal & General Group have upped their stake to 5.10% of shares. Someone has faith!|
|I have no explanation. Why don't you fire off an email to them and also to Edwards to see what the score is? As shareholders (long term!) we surely can demand an explanation. When I emailed Edwards and Bevis on 8 March I got a pretty quick response and even prompted them to issue an RNS that same day! Give it a shot! Keep us advised.|
|Has anyone read any explanation as to why N+1Singer, the house broker, is estimating a near one third drop in Xar's profits and earnings per share (21.2p to 14.4p) in the current year?|
|Haha Fez very true!|
|I think we're all long term holders here - anything else would crystalise our losses!|
