At a glance
In the first Main Market listing on the LSE of 2022, Memery Crystal has advised Graft Polymer (UK) plc, a business focussed on the development of polymer modification, bio/food supplements and drug delivery systems, on its listing and £5m placing.
Established in 2017 by a group of polymer technology experts and venture capitalists, Graft Polymer’s products address customer needs across a wide range of end use markets, from automotive through to medical. The business has distribution relationships with multiple partners globally, including distributors and agents in Europe, India and Russia.
The fundraising of £5m will fund accelerated growth, expand the Group’s research and production facility in Slovenia to meet rising customer demand, upgrade existing facilities to enable future IP registration, and increase both inventory and marketing opportunities following expected increased sales.

Commenting on the listing, Nick Davis said: “Graft Polymer is a highly innovative business with strong ESG credentials and intellectual property holding several patent applications. This listing is an exciting milestone for the business as it continues to provide novel products and solutions to a range of industries. We wish them every success with their expansion plans and look forward to continuing to support them.”
