xaar plc (XAR) Key Developments

Xaar plc Provides Financial Guidance for the Full Year of 2014 and 2015

Xaar plc provided financial guidance for the full year of 2014 and 2015. The Board now expects 2014 full year Group revenue to be approximately £108 million. As a result, profit for the year is now expected to be higher than current market expectations. Forward visibility remains low and the Board's expectations for 2015 remain unchanged. The Group continues to anticipate that total sales in 2015 will not exceed £100 million, reflecting a broadly consistent level of sales across all applications at the present level of demand.

Xaar Cuts 160 Jobs as China Stalls

Xaar announced it would cut 160 jobs, 20% of its workforce, due to a sales slowdown in China. The staff cuts are to prepare for what it expects to be lower revenue in 2015.

Xaar plc Provides Sales Guidance for the 2014 and 2015

Xaar plc provided sales guidance for the 2014 and 2015. For 2014, the company expects total revenue to be 5%-10% below the bottom of the previously announced range of £115-125 million. The group is planning to take action to reduce costs in anticipation of total group revenue for 2015 being below £100 million. This is expected to result in a 15% reduction in operating expenditures, and potentially a total reduction in headcount (subject to consultation) of approximately 20% of the current global workforce of around 800 employees.
