Xaar plc Announces Management Changes

Xaar plc announced the appointment of its new Chief Executive Officer. As announced in March 2014, Ian Dinwoodie will retire from the company in 2015 after serving as CEO since 2003. Following an extensive international search process, the company announced that Dr. Doug Edwards will join the board as Chief Executive Officer with immediate effect. Doug joins the company from Kodak where most recently he was President, Digital Printing and Enterprise and has been a member of the Executive Board since 2006.

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.
