DeepMatter Group Plc (AIM: DMTR) (“DeepMatter” the “Company” or the “Group”), the international digital chemistry data company , today announces a placing and subscription to raise gross proceeds o f £ 2.55 million, at a price of 0.1 pence per new ordinary share of 0.01 pence each.
Following DeepMatter’s announcement on 17 December 2021 that it was in discussions around raising equity investment, the Placing and Subscription will enable the Group to move forward without the need to re-evaluate its strategy and outlook.
The Placing and Subscription is being financed by a small number of new professional individual investors and existing institutional shareholders.
In addition to the Placing and Subscription, the Group is proposing to raise up to £0.25 million by way of an open offer which will be available to all Qualifying Shareholders at the Record Time (the “Open Offer”, together with the Placing and the Subscription, the “Fundraise”).
The Placing is being made on the basis of the terms and conditions set out in the Appendix below. The Placing is being conducted by Canaccord Genuity Limited (“Canaccord Genuity”) as Nomad, Sole Bookrunner and Broker (the “Broker”).
The Circular will be sent to Shareholders early in 2022 which sets out further details on the proposed Fundraise and will contain the notice convening the General Meeting for the purpose of considering the Resolutions and associated matters.
Further to the announcement made on the 17 December 2021, DeepMatter continues to engage with Standigm over the multi-year deal as outlined. However, the Directors now believe that this contract will now be signed in 2022, which will result in revenue for 2021 being lower than Director’s expectations.
The Group is dependent on the completion of the Fundraise and the receipt of the net proceeds of the Fundraise in order for it to continue to meet its forecasts and execute its strategy. In the event that the Resolutions are not passed at the General Meeting and the Fundraise is not completed, the Board would have to immediately re-evaluate the strategy and outlook of the Group .
