Universal Matter acquires main operating business of Applied Graphene Materials
UMI aims to combine its graphene capabilities with AGM’s dispersion technologies to accelerate the growth of graphene-based solutions.

Universal Matter UK Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Universal Matter Inc. (UMI, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada and Houston, Texas, U.S.), has acquired all shares of Applied Graphene Materials UK Ltd. (Cleveland, U.K.) and Applied Graphene Materials LLC (AGM), the main operating subsidiaries of Applied Graphene Materials plc.

The acquisition took place on March 28, 2023, for a total consideration of $1.3 million USD. The sale and purchase agreements relating to this transaction were signed on February 21, 2023, and UK NSI Act approval was received on March 24, 2023.

The acquisition aims to accelerate the growth of novel graphene-based solutions by combining UMI’s proprietary graphene capabilities and AGM’s dispersion platform technologies. This combination will also help create a compelling value proposition for many industries by further capitalizing on UMI’s unique flash joule heating (FJH) process for upcycling carbon waste into high-performance, sustainable graphene solutions.

UMI, a privately-held Canadian corporate, was formed in July 2019 and is a high-tech advanced materials company seeking to create strong circular economies by upcycling a range of carbon-based materials, including waste streams, to manufacture and supply high quality and sustainable turbostratic graphene (TG).

UMI’s proprietary flash joule heating (FJH) process can reportedly transform a variety of carbon-containing feedstocks into high value graphene materials using a highly efficient and low-cost manufacturing process. UMI says its unique pathway for producing graphene is strongly protected by background IP and trade secrets that the company has built up during the last three years.

UMI operates its Innovation Centers in Mississauga, Ontario and Houston, Texas. The company has also recently acquired an 18,000 square foot building in Burlington, Ontario for housing its demonstration plant, which is expected to be operational in the third quarter of 2023 with a nameplate capacity of ~1 ton per day at full utilization. The combination of feedstock flexibility and the FJH process technology can produce tuneable graphene products with a range of physical properties.

AGM’s market leading product technologies have been designed to deliver next generation performance requirements for protective industrial coatings and other applications. This includes graphene dispersion technologies, application and formulating know-how, and compelling test results to support market adoption in coatings, composites and beyond. In addition, AGM’s dispersion solutions are said to be easy and safe to use in industrial settings, and have appropriate regulatory approvals for volume deployment.

UMI says that AGM’s dispersion technology will be further leveraged to enable the deployment of graphene materials into many of the strategic market segments that UMI is pursuing. AGM’s pipeline of ongoing customer engagements for evaluating its products and technologies will also significantly accelerate UMI’s overall product/market adoption strategies, UMI says.

“The acquisition of AGM fits exceptionally well with UMI’s growth strategy by significantly enhancing our dispersion and application capabilities for advanced paints and coatings. Moreover, it will provide UMI with an important European footprint for strengthening our growth potential,” says John van Leeuwen, CEO of Universal Matter.


To the extent there are any residual amounts after the costs of the winding up are deducted, then such amounts will be distributed to shareholders via an appointed liquidator.

Looks to me as though nearly out of road

I have a hunch they will do some sort of financing but will be a massive giveaway,possible involving asset dilution.

As long as its around or above the key 2p per share equiv i think they may survive,shorters will be all over this for the next few weeks IMO

20th November 2013.

That is when AGM listed and guess what?

That is how long they have been promising jam. Not only have they warned today, but in all that time they have delivered sales of...

Dare you even look?

There are alot of these about in Jam City:


Those are the ones I can think off the top of my head but they just don't deliver. All you get are jam filled promises and eventual share price destruction. I can see the latter two beginning to deliver some jam, so perhaps something bullish will follow, but on the whole they are hard work.

You can almost categorise these shares into locations within the market. More recently we have Covid ClobberVille:


They are falling over themselves to buy GDR too, except the broker has just pulled the forecasts as there is no forward visibility and a placing will be on its way if the usual non delivery of sales (or even limited sales) happens. There is a short building a position there too who must be looking to close into a future placing on non-delivery.

If you look at just the above examples, how many of these are going to come out and deliver to the upside for holders in years to come? I would be surprised if it is more than a few.

How about IPO Town next - we won't even go there!

The reality is that trading these jam filled risky sorts into any momentum and euphoria and taking profits along the way is the best strategy imo. Beyond lobbing into profitable spikes, the percentages simply aren't on our side.

All imo

Serratia, thanks for that. When I'm a bit further on in my research maybe we could compare notes?

In their report, Edison believe that AGM will need one more fundraising for around £2 million before they can hit profitability which, according to them, will come when revenues his around £10 million. I just wonder how much of a shot in the dark that is. Do you have anything to say about it?

er, congratulations on your first 2 posts in 12 years.

Share price action of the past 8 months from a peak of 74p down to 22p reflects that while lots of applications are emerging from numerous graphene companies across the world, so far it's all at small scale with none achieving widespread or mainstream usage or demand as far as I've noticed, including those of AGM. Rather than blockbuster consumer products, just higher performance of existing products and materials beginning to creep in at the fringe of specialist and industrial markets. Thus investor interest has been premature. I have a hunch that eventually the higher profile markets for graphene enhancement will be batteries & electrical components, civil engineering, marine and space applications. But AGM's stated aim is to go for the lower hanging fruit first, thus we have mostly coatings and admixtures.

AGM still not profitable for several years probably, and there will almost certainly be more share issuance before so. However, the small revenues and number of launched products among its customers are at an all time high and growing. Prospects for continued revenue growth look good and could lend support to the future share price. To read ahead, you can only guess the royalties from future sales volumes of the customers' products.

I can't discern an obvious front-runner among the UK(or anywhere else)-listed graphene companies - would be nice to hear from anyone who can.

Packman, in fairness the share price was around 50p when I made that post and even I was taken aback by the rise to around 70p based on very thin news. They said that they'd need to raise cash before Oct 21 and I rather suspect that this was too good an opportunity to miss, given the recent share price rise (rather than they've used up all of £3.8m). The real question is whether this is a good investment at about 45p (there seems to be some support at that price and they won't want the share price to drop below the placing price).

Graphene may be the product of the future but I still think this (and other graphene plays) are very speculative IMHO and I'm still not convinced that the licencing model is the way to go in the long term. Graphene is a classic product in need of a killer application. Marginal improvements to existing products won't cut the biscuit unless it gives manufacturers either a significant cost reduction or marketing edge IMHO.

The RNS stated that products supplied by the Graphene REACH registration consortium, of which AGM is a member has approval to produce up to 10 tonnes of graphene powder per Annum. I can only think of one company AGM who can produce these quantities and meet commercial volume. Doing this alone is not enough, a company has to back this up with firm product data/specification and a controlled distribution network to have safe storage of those materials. Share price Is moving upwards as a result of the confidence in AGM. Do research the company to fully understand AGM’s core markets in graphene

I find the share price movement all a bit perplexing.

It's quite clear, by AGM's own admission in its latest interim results, that AGM needs to do at least one more (probably) sizeable fund raising within the next year, markets permitting, and yet the share price continues to creep up despite AGM's business model being nowhere near self-sustaining in the medium-term (if it was, AGM wouldn't need to be considering raising funds in the market, it could borrow from its banks).

AGM is the typical graphene play, lots of new contract announcements but, as yet, next to no revenues (and little or no foreward guidance on future contract revenues). Been here before with both Haydale and Versarien. Plenty of contract announcements to boost the share price before a (deeply) discounted new share offering.

I may be wrong but I think I'm going to keep my powder dry for now because I think the share price will inevitably retrace once the next fund raising is away and there'll be an opportunity to get in at a (lot) lower price.

The real question then becomes do I really want to invest in a company wedded to a de facto licencing model (again). I've been bitten by the licencing model too foten in the past (Hiwave and Torotrak to name but two); technology with great potential but no takers (far cheaper for the scavengers to pick over the carcass). AGM may manufacture the graphene "additive" but is wholly reliant on large manufacturers buying and using the "additive" in their products. Sometimes it pays to simply grasp the nettle, start small and bring your own niche product(s) to market and force the competition to stand up and take notice (this worked quite well for Indigovision up to a point).

I'm not saying this is what AGM should do but, as yet, none of the listed UK graphene plays have been able to reach critical mass and the longer it goes on, the less likely they will (eventually investors get exhausted of constant cash calls and promises of jam tomorrow).

Just the sad old views of an investor who is still looking for his ASOS (and probably never will because the investment case never makes any sense without a giant leap of blind faith)
