Ilika’s investor day on 23 January proved to be popular with both retail and institutional investors. Ilika opened its doors in order to showcase its unique high throughput materials development platform as well as the recently commissioned solid state battery pilot line. Interest was such that the investors had to be separated into three groups to ensure that opportunities to examine the facilities and question scientific staff were maximised.
2014 has been a rewarding year for Ilika’s investors with the Company’s stock being a top 10 performer on AIM. Strong investor interest in the Company ensured that the event was fully subscribed. The Company’s directors were on hand to present its half-year results and answer questions. For most investors, it appears that the highlight of the day was a tour of the pilot line, in which Ilika’s CTO, Professor Brian Hayden, highlighted the equipment’s functionality and showed examples of battery materials already made by Ilika’s production team.
“We were delighted that so many investors took the opportunity to accept our invitation to visit the company. I was impressed at their depth of understanding of our technology and the sophistication of the questions we received. I’d like to thank our investors for their sustained support and enthusiasm for the Company’s activities,” summarised Graeme Purdy, Ilika’s CEO.
