Walbrook PR, which provides high quality Financial PR and Investor Relations to Small Cap and AIM listed companies, announces it is acting as Financial PR & Investor Relations advisor for Light Science Technologies Holdings plc (AIM: “LST”), the controlled environment agriculture (“CEA”) technology and contract electronics manufacturing (“CEM”) Group. Having advised the Company ahead of its successful IPO on AIM last month, Walbrook is now managing the Company’s ongoing communications with the financial media, research analysts and non-institutional investors, including new and existing private investors.

On admission, Light Science Technologies Holdings completed a successful placing for gross proceeds of £5.2 million, with a market capitalisation of approximately £17.4 million.

Light Science Technologies Holdings plc is the holding company of the Group’s controlled environment agriculture (“CEA”) division, Light Science Technologies Ltd (“Light Science Technologies”), and its contract electronics manufacturing (“CEM”) division, UK Circuits and Electronics Solutions Limited (“UK Circuits”).

Controlled Environment Agriculture

Light Science Technologies was founded in 2019 and is the Company’s grow lights and sensor technology business, providing bespoke recipes and technologies tailored to customers' needs - with key targets including indoor, vertical, glasshouses, polytunnels and medicinal farming markets. The all-in-one CEA solution will include analysing customers’ crop growing requirements to provide bespoke, low-energy and sustainable equipment.

Market drivers include food and water shortages in many parts of the world; growing global population; UK and other government policy encouraging sustainable and efficient growth methods; increased scrutiny of the effect of food production on climate change and the continuing transition away from processed foods.  

Contract Electronics Manufacturing

UK Circuits is the Company’s CEM focussed division, with strong revenue and cash generation. The Group designs, procures, and manufactures high-quality CEM products, specialising in Printed Circuit Boards, which are used in a range of sectors including audio, automotive, electronics, gas detection, lighting, pest control, telecommunications and, more recently, the CEA market.

Paul McManus, Founder and Managing Director of Walbrook PR, commented: “We are delighted to be working with Light Science Technologies Holdings and congratulate the Company on its recent AIM IPO. LST is a highly prospective company with market drivers addressing critical issues affecting today’s society - including food and water shortages, the growing global population and the increased national emphasis to grow more sustainably.

“We look forward to developing the Company’s profile with analysts, investors and journalists as they begin this exciting new chapter.”
