Accelerating investments to drive revenue growth

Knosys Ltd (ASX:KNO) has received firm commitments to raise $1.37 million at 7 cents per share from an oversubscribed share placement to sophisticated investors.

The placement will be followed by a rights issue to raise about $2.65 million from existing and new shareholders on the same terms.

The Knosys KnowledgeIQ platform is a knowledge management solution that enables companies to deliver personalised information to staff and customers through a machine learning approach to transform productivity and engagement.

Accelerating investments to drive revenue growth

Knosys will use the funds raised from the placement to repay the holders of convertible notes maturing on 31 May 2018.

Funds raised in the subsequent rights issue will be used to accelerate investment in the company’s sales and marketing teams in order to drive APAC customer and revenue growth.
