Malcolm Palle, Executive Chairman of Coinsilium commented: "Today's financing brings a new strategic sector-focused investor onto our register. Further, adding to our working capital funds will enable us to implement a number of important strategic initiatives to support Coinsilium's growth through 2019 and beyond.
"Shareholders and investors will be aware that the blockchain landscape has been challenging through much of this year and whilst this has impacted on the market valuation of the Company, we are now presented with some interesting strategic opportunities on markedly improved terms.
"Whilst we still see significant upside in our business from existing and new opportunities, we also recognise the need to employ a degree of caution when committing working capital. The funds raised will therefore be effectively deployed to maintain Coinsilium's rapid growth trajectory.
The board continues to focus on delivering long term shareholder value and we will be providing the market with a comprehensive strategic business update early in the new year."
