Teathers Financial Plc ('Teathers' or 'the Company')

TFSL offers first Placing through the Teathers App


Teathers Financial Plc, the AIM listed investment company, is pleased to announce that the first equity placing delivered through a mobile application has been successfully completed.    Private investors subscribed for a total of £15,000 in Constellation Healthcare Technology Plc through the propriety Teathers App ('the App') as part of a £30 million placing.  The App's innovative technology enabled private investors to invest on the same terms as institutional investors.


The Placing was sourced and offered on an execution only basis by FCA regulated Shard Capital Partners LLP ('Shard Capital').  Shard Capital provides the on-boarding services, the regulatory compliance features and the custodial support framework for its clients when participating in the deal.  The App, which is operated by the Company's fully owned investee company, Teathers Financial Software Limited ('TFSL'), facilitated the investing process.


Teathers' Executive Chairman Jason Drummond said, "This is a watershed moment in delivering equity placings over a mobile platform.  It is in line with our vision to enfranchise private investors through licensed brokers, so that they can participate in placings at the same levels as institutions through the use of sophisticated mobile technology, which also benefits companies by providing an additional source of investment.  We are delighted that the uptake by Shard Capital clients has been so strong, which we believe is testament to the appetite for a platform such as developed by TFSL.  This update also demonstrates that it is business as usual at Teathers, despite our suspension, which we are working hard to resolve, and we look forward to providing additional updates in the future."  


TFSL Managing Director Oliver Fattal said, "We are delighted with the success our app technology has achieved in powering the first mobile-led placing in a listed company.   Our technology enables private investors to participate on the same terms as institutional investors, often at a discount to current market prices.  This is a unique investing tool for investors, companies and brokers alike, and we look forward to welcoming new users to the platform, which can be downloaded from iTunes Connect (Apple), Google Play and Android."
