Trading Update


Xaar plc ("Xaar"), a world leader in industrial inkjet technology, provides a trading update:

Revenue for the half year to 30 June 2018 is expected to be circa £35m, including £9.8m of one off royalties. Underlying trading since the end of June has been, and is expected to continue to be, below the levels previously anticipated by the Board in its announcement of 27th June 2018. Although the reception of new products has been positive, adoption of the 1201 printhead, in particular, has to date been significantly slower than expected, and the rate of decline in ceramics continues to be aggressive.

The Board is already undertaking a review of strategic options for more extensive partnering in the printhead business unit, a process which it had planned to announce with the interim results. The Company will also provide an update on its previously announced cost saving actions in its interim results which will be announced on 5th September 2018.
