AFC Energy, the industrial fuel cell power company, is pleased to announce that at its General Meeting held earlier today all resolutions were duly passed.  

 

Accordingly, the Company now has the requisite authority to complete the issue of 80,684,262 New Ordinary Shares at a price of 10 pence per Ordinary Shares to raise, in aggregate, £8.1 million before expenses.

 

The net proceeds of the Fundraise will be used to support the Company on its journey to commercialisation, and specifically for:

 

·      delivery of its commitments under the Company's joint development agreement with De Nora S.p.A. ("De Nora");

·      business case development with De Nora;

·      scoping study completion with Peel Environmental Limited and other third parties in advance of any potential project deployment;

·      fund the ongoing operation of the Company's demonstration plant at Stade, together with ongoing testing costs; and

The 80,684,262 New Ordinary Shares are expected to be admitted to trading on AIM at 8.00 a.m. on 9 March 2017 ("Admission"). Following Admission, the Company will have 390,948,205 Ordinary Shares in issue.

About AFC Energy

 

AFC Energy plc has developed and successfully operated an alkaline fuel cell system, which converts hydrogen into "clean" electricity. AFC Energy's key project POWER-UP demonstrated the world's largest operational alkaline fuel cell system at Air Products' industrial gas plant in Stade, Germany in January 2016.  The Company is now looking to build upon an already established pipeline of commercial opportunities and drive the findings from the development phase of the technology into a technically optimised and commercially relevant fuel cell system.  For further information, please visit our website:  www.afcenergy.com.
