A couple of months ago Starrob posted an article about a little Swedish 3D company called Arcam (AMAVF) which has a process of their own and makes machines for the aerospace industry and for orthopedics. I bought it at about $13 or $14. It is now at $32, since it is now available on US markets. I wish I had bought more.

They could be acquired by DDD.

They just announced year end results: Revenue up 29% to equivalent of $22 million. Earnings up 170% to 64 cents from 24 cents. Net profit margin was 10.8% up from 5.1% the year before. They had orders for 24 systems, up from 12 the year before. Their order book at year-end was 10 systems, up from 1 the year before. They had $4.3 million in cash. 30% of their income was aftermarket sales (renewable income).

Best of luck to you all.
