Glantus has successfully raised £10 million for the company through an oversubscribed placing of New Ordinary Shares with investors. On Admission, Glantus’ market capitalization will be approximately £37 million.
We’re delighted to announce our successful fundraise and admission to AIM. It is an important step in our development and provides an excellent platform for expansion. Based on growth forecasts for the Accounts Payable automation market and an acceleration of digital business initiatives, we are extremely well placed to capitalize on the investment by companies in finance automation and analytics. - Maurice Healy, Founder & CEO, Glantus
Through a combination of revenue growth and acquisitions Glantus has established a presence in the Accounts Payable market. It utilizes a technology platform that layers onto existing data systems and transforms and analyses data to improve finance automation, and deliver analytics to business users.
We’re delighted to welcome Glantus to AIM and congratulate the company and its advisory teams on its successful flotation. It takes considerable effort to build a business from scratch and it’s great to see a serial entrepreneur such as Maurice return to the market. We look forward to supporting Glantus’ growth on AIM. - Neil Shah, Senior Business Development Manager, London Stock Exchange
The net proceeds from the flotation will provide the company with equity finance to support its growth strategy by investing in account management, sales and marketing, and will provide balance sheet strength for Glantus to consider further acquisitions.
