Kromek (AIM: KMK), a worldwide supplier of detection technology focusing on the medical, security screening and nuclear markets, is pleased to announce a conditional Firm Placing and Open Offer to raise up to £21 million before expenses. The Firm Placing has been undertaken with new and existing institutional investors in the Company and was over-subscribed.

Highlights

  • Proposed conditional Firm Placing to raise £20.0 million through the issue of 80,000,000 Placing Shares to new and existing institutional and other investors at 25 pence per Placing Share.
  • Proposed Open Offer to raise up to approximately £1.0 million through the issue of up to 4,008,471 Open Offer Shares to Qualifying Shareholders at 25 pence per Open Offer Share.
  • The net proceeds of the Transaction will be used to significantly increase future manufacturing capacity and associated working capital to support the growth of the medical imaging business; to expand sales and marketing of the D3S for nuclear radiation detection; and to further strengthen balance sheet to provide the Company with flexibility to address and capitalise on opportunities as they emerge.

Sir Peter Williams, Chairman of Kromek, said: “Over the last three fiscal years we have won contracts totalling $138 million across all of our core sectors – reflecting the conversion of our expanding order pipeline and customers increasingly launching next-generation CZT-based products. With the growing demand for our flagship products in all our market segments, this fundraise will strengthen our ability to capitalise on these substantial opportunities. As such, the Board recommends all shareholders to vote in favour of the proposals, which will enable us to deliver increased value to our shareholders.”

We’re delighted to have opened our new site at NETPark.  This will make it easier for us to attract the best engineering talent to the Tharsus team so that we can continue to deliver game-changing robotic systems for our customers.

Brian Palmer , - CEO, Tharsus

We initially came because of the printable electronics centre but access to a highly skilled semi conductor workforce in the North East has been a key factor in us staying and growing here, as well as the value for money office space and the access to funding.

CPI has developed a specialist offering to support SMEs looking to develop their printable electronics applications and our partnership with Business Durham has been instrumental in attracting several SMEs to locate here in the region.

Access to quality facilities was one of the main drivers for deciding to locate the business at the NETPark. We have been able to use this as a launch pad to link into support from CPI and world-class expertise from Durham University.
