DeepMatter Group Plc (AIM: DMTR), the AIM-quoted company focusing on digitising chemistry, is pleased to announce the successful completion of the Placing announced yesterday (the "Placing Announcement").

A total of 130,830,001 Placing Shares and 11,733,334 Subscription Shares have been placed at the Issue Price of 1.5 pence per New Ordinary Share, conditionally raising gross proceeds of approximately £2.1 million. Canaccord Genuity acted as Nomad, Sole Bookrunner and Broker.

Settlement and Admission

The New Ordinary Shares, when issued, will be credited as fully paid and will rank pari passu in all respects with the Existing Ordinary Shares of the Company, including the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid after the date of issue of the New Ordinary Shares.

Application has been made for the New Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM.

Settlement for the Placing Shares and Admission is expected to take place at 8.00 a.m. on or around 17 July 2020. The Placing is conditional upon, among other things, Admission becoming effective and the Placing Agreement not being terminated in accordance with its terms.

Total Voting Rights

Following Admission, the Company will have a total of 879,097,281 Ordinary Shares in issue, with no Ordinary Shares held in treasury. With effect from Admission, this figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in the Company, under the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules of the Financial Conduct Authority.

About DeepMatter Group plc  

DeepMatter's long term strategy is to integrate chemistry with technology, thereby enabling a greater use of artificial intelligence and reaching a point where chemicals can be autonomously synthesised through robotics. In the near term this involves the provision of an integrated software, hardware and artificial intelligence enabled platform, DigitalGlassware™, to scientists across research and process development sectors. 

The DigitalGlassware™ platform allows chemistry experiments to be accurately and systematically recorded, coded and entered into a shared data cloud. The platform is designed to enable chemists to work together effectively; sharing the details of their experiments from anywhere and in real-time, so that work is not needlessly duplicated, time and money wasted, and ultimately so new discoveries may be made faster.
