Xaar plc

Market Cap (£m) 142.5


Company Description

Xaar is a specialist electronic devices and systems business based around its piezo electric industrial inkjet printhead technologies and products. Xaar manufactures the printheads for use in applications that include ceramic tile printing, product coding and market, large format graphics, 3D printing and printing on windscreens.

Investment Summary

Xaar’s management has done a fine job in recent years of turning the business around. Management’s strategy of investing in new products and working more with end users and printer manufacturers is already showing through in growing revenues. The new product roadmap should allow Xaar to address much of the estimated $1bn industrial inkjet market. As new products come through, Xaar regains and wins market share and the benefits of historical investment in capacity and operational gearing are reflected in the profits and cash generation, there is potential for forecast upgrades and, on an EV/Sales basis at least, some rerating.
