Mark Warne, CEO of DeepMatter, said:

"It has been a transformational year for the Company, having successfully delivered on what we set out to do with our Pioneer Programme. I'm pleased to say our technology is now deployed on a trial basis with several of the world's premier scientific organisations, with good engagement. Post-period end, the Company has gone on to complete the key strategic acquisition of InfoChem and completed an oversubscribed fundraising.

Building upon our experiences within the 2018 Pioneer Programme, the Company is now focused on deploying its technology to an increasingly larger user base; incorporating robust cheminformatic capabilities enabled by the recent InfoChem acquisition; and progressing to the direct monetisation of the platform. Alongside this the Company has begun to identify unique chemistry insights, which we will use to create intellectual property and share with the wider scientific community in due course, as further proof of the validity of the platform."
