Seeing Machines Limited (LON:SEE) has raised £31.57mln following a placing, a subscription and an offer of new shares.

The firm, which develops operator monitoring technology for vehicles including cars and aircraft, said it had raised £27.77mln in a placing and a subscription of new shares from various directors, which were announced on 20 March and 22 March respectively, while the remaining £3.8mln had been raised through an offer to qualifying existing shareholders.

The placing price for the shares was 3p each, a 35% discount to the closing price on 19 March.

Ken Kroeger, chief executive of Seeing Machines, said the funds would be “instrumental” in ensuring the company could continue to leverage market opportunities as they “rapidly grow and evolve”.

"We are very pleased with the continued support of our shareholders. The automotive and fleet sectors are increasingly recognising the risks posed by driver inattention and fatigue in single vehicles as well as across commercial and passenger transport. Our industry leading driver monitoring technology … has been consistently validated through regulatory and government recommendations globally.”
