Use of Proceeds
The net proceeds receivable by the Company pursuant to the Placing are expected to be applied principally to:
· increase production capacity in line with sales growth;
· further automate key production processes in order to increase capacity, quality and productivity;
· augment working capital in support of anticipated future growth;
· support the Company’s ESG programme; and
· implement a new SAP financial reporting system.
The Directors believe the Placing and Admission will enable the Company to further invest in both Glazing and EV but principally, to accelerate its growth plans and underpin its early mover advantage in the EV battery sector, further enhance its profile in the markets in which it operates and assist with attracting, retaining and incentivising high calibre employees.
Richard Barton, Chief Executive Officer of Strip Tinning, commented:
“Today’s admission to AIM is a significant landmark for Strip Tinning and a special day in the Company’s evolution. The business continues to go from strength to strength and has come a long way since being founded in 1957, plating wires and coils for general engineering applications in the local Birmingham area.
We are now a leading supplier of specialist connectors to the automotive sector, having established long-term customer relationships with some of the automotive industry’s most familiar names. Today’s admission provides us with the resources to further enhance our capabilities and continue on our exciting journey.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Strip Tinning team for all their hard work over the years and to welcome our new shareholders to the register.”
Singer Capital Markets has been retained as the Company’s Nominated Adviser and Broker following Admission.
