Guy Wheatley, CFA commented:

Accessing new funding has proven harder in 2022 as a result of money being raised via placings heavily reducing. Equity placings on AIM have raised 69% less per quarter in 2022 to date versus 2021. The admission of Smarttech247 and the value of the raise achieved demonstrates what we see as a highly exciting opportunity for Smarttech247 and its investors. We are looking forward to working with the company in the future and are excited about the potential of Smarttech247 for the stakeholders in the business.

Raluca Saceanu, CEO of Smarttech247 commented:

“Despite the clear challenges in the markets, Guy worked with us to secure the investment volume and investor quality that we were after to achieve an effective listing of Smarttech247. He has helped us manage the process and relationships with the investors during the last few months whilst we attended to closing the listing in 2022. Myself and the team at Smarttech247 are very grateful for the doors that Fortified Securities helped to open and their efficient work alongside Shard Capital to close the fundraise.”
