Polymer specialist Revolymer wanted an independent analysis of its technology and product applications in preparation for seeking admission to AIM. It needed to raise funds to expand the development and commercialisation of its products, which include removable chewing gum as well as high-performance household cleaning and personal care products. Revolymer has pioneered a moisture-retaining polymer than can make discarded chewing gum easier to remove.
We carried out extensive research into Revolymer’s technology and product portfolio, its target markets, and its business strategy and capabilities – marrying up assessment of the science with the commercial opportunities and risks.
We used our expertise in transaction support and independently assessing commercial applications of technology to produce a detailed expert report. The report focused on the merits, market opportunity and risks associated with the company’s portfolio and approach.
We concluded that, although Revolymer’s technologies are addressing some challenging issues, the risks are consistent with the current stage of development of the company and it has the expertise to address the challenges.
Our work helped Revolymer raise £25 million in an over-subscribed IPO. Demonstrating the business case of innovative solutions in niche markets to potential investors can be challenging, and we are well positioned to add value to the proposition of new ventures.
“Cambridge Consultants has added genuine credence to the business through its assessment of Revolymer’s technology portfolio,” said Rob Cridland, chief financial officer of Revolymer. “It has a credible reputation throughout a variety of industries for providing independent constructive technical expertise. This input has allowed us to clearly define our unique position in the fast-moving consumer goods space.”
