BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Netcapital Inc. (Nasdaq: NCPL, NCPLW) (the “Company”), a digital private capital markets ecosystem, today announced the successful completion of a capital offering by Avadain, which developed a green manufacturing technology to manufacture high quality graphene flakes and is backed by Panasonic. Avadain’s offering closed on July 28, 2022, selling 341,685 units at a share price of $4.00 for a total of approximately $1.37 million in proceeds.
“We congratulate Avadain on their successful capital raise,” said Jason Frishman, CEO of Netcapital Funding Portal Inc. “Our unique platform technology is designed to connect interested investors with private companies like Avadain that are positioned to bring major innovations to burgeoning markets. Based on investor interest, we believe Avadain will enjoy an exciting future.”
Avadain has developed an environmentally-friendly process to mass-produce large, thin and nearly defect-free graphene flakes. Graphene is widely touted as the material of the 21st Century. It is believed to be the strongest and thinnest thermal and electricity-conducting material in the world.1 Graphene is expected to revolutionize electric vehicles, supercapacitors, batteries, sensors, renewable energy, and medicine, among other industries. Virtually no other companies are currently focused on manufacturing industrial quantities of high-quality graphene flakes.
Brad Larschan, CEO of Avadain, commented, “Avadain was founded with the mission of unleashing the ‘Graphene Revolution’ by delivering industrial volumes of our green, high-quality graphene flakes at an affordable price to address rapidly growing market demand. We are grateful to Netcapital for bringing our investment story and mission to thousands of prospective investors. The funds we raised through the Netcapital funding portal will help us expand our global patent portfolio, produce samples which industry has been asking for, and fund operations to meet the explosive projections for graphene demand across high-growth markets.”
