November 2022: Aquinox - a turning point in inkjet technology

Xaar announced on Wednesday the release of its Aquinox printhead for use with water-based inks. This is a major step forward for Xaar and for aqueous inkjet printing. Aquinox is the latest printhead to work on Xaar’s ImagineX platform and helps open up new markets, most notable packaging and textiles. It also enables Xaar to take advantage of increasing demands in other markets, notably ceramics.

July 2022: Firmly back on the growth trajectory

Xaar’s H1 trading update for 6M ended 30th June 2022, confirms that the group is trading well, with increased revenues, improving margins, costs under control and new products launching to schedule. Xaar is clearly back onto a robust growth trajectory. We are maintaining our forecasts and look forward to the interims in September as an opportunity find out more about how the momentum is building.

June 2022: Roadmap to significant profit growth

With a clear roadmap of new digital inkjet products and an ambitious management team focused on gaining (or retaining) significant market shares across the segments that make up its $1bn addressable market, Xaar is positioned to grow strongly. Management has already demonstrated its abilities in turning the business around, and we believe it is far from clear that the share price fully reflects the opportunities ahead.
