Further to the announcement of 28 January 2019, BATM Advanced Communications Limited (LSE: BVC), a leading provider of real-time technologies for networking solutions and medical laboratory systems, is pleased to announce the completion of the initial investment of $14.5m ("Initial Investment") under the conditional subscription and shareholders' agreement (the "Investment Agreement") for up to $30m to provide additional funds for the commercialisation of the molecular biology-based solutions being developed by Ador Diagnostics.
