Further investment in Low6

 

Pires Investments plc (AIM: PIRI), the investment company focused on next-generation technology, is pleased to announce that it has invested a further £35,000 in Low6 Limited ("Low6") as part of the extension of Low6's pre-IPO funding round, which closed in Q4 2020 and in which Low6 raised A$6m (£3.3m) in convertible notes. Low6 is a UK incorporated company that has developed a next-generation sports betting platform.

 

Pires' investment follows its initial subscription, as announced on 14 December 2020, for 6,667 ordinary shares in Low6 at a price of £30 per share, for a total consideration of £200,010. The consideration for this further investment, which  is by way of a convertible note, has been satisfied from Pires' existing cash resources.

 

Low6 had advised that it was proposing to extend the pre-IPO round to allow further investment from a leading gaming industry player. The funds raised from the extension of the pre-IPO funding round will be used to provide Low6 with further working capital as its users continue to increase.  Low6's plans to IPO remain on track, with a listing expected in Q2 2021.

Peter Redmond, Chairman of Pires, commented:

 

"We are very pleased to announce this further investment in Low6, as part of an extension of the company's recent pre-IPO funding round. As the platform's users continue to rapidly increase, this additional funding should provide Low6 with the capital to scale the business at an even quicker pace ahead of its IPO, intended for Q2 2021. W e look forward to providing further updates on this investment in due course."
