Xaar PLC

Bericht door Sunny »

Xaar PLC maakt inkjet printkoppen ondermeer voor het printen van sterk visceuze vloeistoffen voor reliefbedrukking van tegels en dergelijke. Ze hebben een zeer moeilijke periode achter de rug met hun geldverslindende afdeling Thin Film dat ze in 2019 stopgezet hebben. De nieuwe CEO John Mills wil het bedrijf opnieuw focussen op de winstgevende delen en heeft reeds een aantal belangrijke stappen gezet.

Op 23 april 2020 is Xaar met cijfers gekomen die positief onthaald werden. Het aandeel noteert momenteel 42 pence op de Londense beurs. De CEO kocht na de cijfers 125.000 aandelen aan 39,50 pence.
De verwachtingen zijn positief.

Interessant, er is dus een link tussen Xaar en Norcros.
Misschien goed om ook te posten op het Norcros forum!? (edit: done)

Zeer interessant. Duidelijk een eerlijke communicatie.
Ze willen duidelijk het verleden achter zich laten en leggen de kaarten op tafel.
Ze geven duidelijk toe dat Thin Film een "ramp" geweest is en hebben dit stopgezet net zoals het contract van de vorige CEO ;)

Voorlopig zien ze weinig impact van de Corona-crisis maar geven geen outlook voor 2020.

02 June 2020 Xaar plc Trading update

At the Annual General Meeting ("AGM") held in Cambridge today, Andrew Herbert, Chairman of Xaar plc ("Xaar" or the "Group") will make the following statement:
- OPERATIONS
In responding to the challenges surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, our priorities have been to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our colleagues, to maintain our business operations and to continue to serve our customers. In March, when lockdown measures were introduced in the UK and elsewhere, we implemented safe working methods for all staff where their attendance on site was necessary, particularly in our factories, while other staff were able to work remotely. The whole team has demonstrated tremendous resilience in difficult circumstances and as a result the business has been able to operate efficiently and continue to meet its commitments to customers.
- CURRENT TRADING AND OUTLOOK
Overall trading in the first four months of the new financial year has been in line with the expectation we established before the Covid-19 outbreak. Sales have been weaker in Europe and North America but stronger in Asia where economies have come out of lockdown sooner. Our short-term order book is healthy but the outlook for the second half of the year remains uncertain and it is too early to assess the impact of the pandemic on the results for the full year 2020 and into 2021. The board will re-establish guidance on expectations as more economies emerge from lockdown and there is greater certainty surrounding economic conditions. We remain confident and focused on our medium-term strategy to return the business to profitability and growth.
- BALANCE SHEET AND LIQUIDITY
The Group entered the year with a strong balance sheet and net cash and an appropriate level of funding to support its strategy. We have maintained disciplined cost control and strong cash management over the past four months and remain well positioned.


Xaar bevestigt dat ze voorlopig weinig hinder ondervinden van de corona-crisis.

Xaar, the leading inkjet printing technology company, has launched a highly advanced, simple to install printhead, following close collaboration with its global OEMs.

Designed to deliver exceptional 720 dpi print resolution quality and performance across a range of applications including ceramics, glass, packaging and label applications, the new Xaar 2002 has been developed specifically to provide fast and easy integration and is ready to use straight out of the box.

Using drop in printhead alignment, mechanical tolerance improvements allow the printheads to be dropped into the printbar easier, making set up times faster, and machine builds quicker.

Developed following OEM and customer feedback, the ‘plug and print’ capability significantly reduces set-up times and helps save time and money.

In addition, thanks to its new advanced Tuned Actuator Manufacturing - TAM2 - and Xaar AcuChp Technology, the Xaar 2002 also delivers visibly improved colour uniformity across the width of the printhead, further reducing printhead installation and set-up times, therefore maximising uptime.

Print speed is greatly enhanced with the Xaar 2002, enabling lines to be run faster. By using the full capability of the printhead, much higher firing frequencies of up to 36 kHz are now possible, delivering significantly increased printing speeds of up to 75 metres per minute at 720dpi.

Graham Tweedale, General Manager of Xaar’s printhead business unit said; “After extensive collaboration with our global OEMs we worked hard to ensure the Xaar 2002 delivers the operational improvements they have asked for.

“With its simple installation and significantly reduced set-up times, we believe the Xaar 2002 printhead offers the speed and performance our customers now demand for the print applications they provide.”

Each Xaar 2002 printhead can be customised by OEMs, ensuring visibility of their brand on the print engine. Furthermore, the Xaar 2002 is serviceable, lowering the total cost of ownership and providing an excellent return on investment.

Designed for use across a variety of applications and ink types the Xaar 2002 is available in three printhead variants – the Xaar 2002 Plus, Xaar 2002 Premium and Xaar 2002 Advanced, providing customer choice and flexibility for a range of print applications.

The Xaar 2002 printhead also incorporates Xaar’s industry leading TF Technology, High Laydown and Ultra High Viscosity printing capabilities. These provide users with significant performance improvements when compared to other printhead designs. Xaar’s unique TF Technology allows a broader range of ink or other fluids to flow directly past the back of the nozzle at very high flow rates. This prevents the nozzle from drying out, increasing the printhead’s nozzle open time, thereby ensuring the printhead is continuously primed for trouble free start-up, even after periods of non-use.

Incorporating many of the performance features requested by customers, the Xaar 2002 is the first printhead to launch under Xaar’s new leadership team and demonstrates the focus on its new strategy.

“The Xaar 2002 range offers all round ease of set up and use, while delivering the exceptional print quality, unsurpassed reliability and unique technologies Xaar is renowned for,” concluded Graham. “Saving time and maximising print results for our customers, whatever their application.”

The Xaar 2002 is fully backwards compatible with printers already using the Xaar 2001+.

Ondanks dat alle Xaar-lichten op groen staan, goede cijfers, goede vooruitzichten, vernieuwende producten die goed onthaald worden, heb ik verkocht gezien de verslechtering van het beursklimaat. Ook de Amerikaanse presidentsverkiezingen gaan nog voor zenuwachtigheid zorgen op de financiële markten.

Dus heb ik beslist om tussentijds te verkopen. Mooi ritje kunnen maken van 55 naar 133 pence na een aantal zeer tegenvallende ervaringen, mss net mijn verlies kunnen goedmaken.

Binnen 6 maanden worden de jaarcijfers gepubliceerd. Ik verwacht dat die goed zullen zijn. Ik denk ze tegen dan terug op te pikken maar op een halfjaar kan er zoveel gebeuren...
