Graphene Spin-Off Flotation Success

(25 November 2013)

Professor Karl Coleman’s Durham Graphene Science (DGS) spin-out has floated on the stock market as “Applied Graphene Materials” (AGM). The flotation was two times over-subscribed, raised £11m and the first day share price rise from 155 to 216p valued the company at £36 million. The national press (Times, Guardian, Express, Sun) had stories on this with photographs of Maria Sharapova and Andy Murray due to graphene materials present in tennis rackets.
