WATCH: Instem PLC has 'significant capital' to accelerate acquisition strategy after strong first half
Cash generation was strong, leaving Instem with £9.1mln, which when added to the £15.75mln raised earlier this month leaves it with “significant capital” to accelerate its acquisition strategy.
It said it has a number of “potential compelling opportunities” for bolt-on deals, with “more substantial targets” have also been identified.
Instem said the business continued to trade in line with expectations.
It told investors: “The board is confident that the company is well-positioned to take advantage of opportunities that arise throughout the remainder of the year and beyond in existing and adjacent markets.
“With a scalable platform in place and broad portfolio of products and services, the aim is to further grow market share, margins and revenue visibility.”
