corporation. This is Xaar's first licence agreement in the US.

industrial printing applications.

disclosed under the terms of the contract, the licence fee will contribute
towards the results for the year to 31 December 2000.



Xaar now has 11 licensees for its ink jet printing technology including large
corporations in Japan, Europe and the USA.

'This licence represents an important step for Xaar as it extends the
opportunities  for our  technology to become more widely used in the
important US market.  It marks a  very encouraging conclusion to a year of
significant progress for Xaar.'
