Comments from Peter Mattisson, C.E.O. TC TECH is a technological innovator that has developed a leading-edge production technology for LGP (Light Guide Plates) used in the global display industry. A number of our production systems are now ready for launch, and have met with strong interest among potential customers. We have thus taken our first steps towards commercialization. Smartphones, tablets and laptops are becoming more and more complex and advanced – with improved functionality, and higher performance. Manufacturers are constantly striving for higher-quality displays. At the same time, however, these displays should also be as thin and energy saving as possible. The energy factor is an important one, as battery capacity for mobile units remains a bottleneck. Concurrently, the world’s total energy consumption for television sets, monitors and displays remains a global problem. With TC TECH’s systems it is possible to produce thinner and optically more advanced LGP. Which, in turn, makes it possible to produce thinner and less energy-consuming screens. This might very well entail a shift of paradigm in the production of LGP. In my opinion, TC TECH might very well position its production systems as a new standard for the manufacture of next generation’s LGP for the display industry. TC TECH is now entering a new phase, launching its systems on the market. We have a strong network among the leading producers of screens, displays and components in Asia, who have shown a great interest in our technology. There are currently a number of discussions and tests going on with several potential customers. We have noted a growing demand for LGP based on optically more advanced matrixes, but it is difficult to estimate when such advanced matrixes will actually gain the upper hand. TC TECH’s progress is also closely linked to the rate at which our potential customers develop their own, more advanced matrixes. The response we are getting, however, is confirming our belief in TC TECH’s unique technology. We know that TC TECH has what it takes to develop next generation’s more sophisticated LGP. In the third quarter of 2015 TC TECH landed its first order,…Read more

New share issue in TC TECH in connection with the planned listing on Nasdaq First North
TC TECH Sweden AB (publ) develops production technology for the screen industry – advanced systems that make it possible to produce screens that are thinner, better and energy-saving. TC TECH is now entering its commercialization phase, having recently secured its first order from a client in Taiwan. To finance its continued expansion TC TECH is now offering a new share issue amounting to SEK 29.8 million, and has applied for a listing on Nasdaq First North.
TC TECH has developed systems for the production of advanced plastic component. The company’s technology is based on an IPR-protected induction technique that makes it possible to heat and cool material, rapidly and with great exactitude. To begin with, TC TECH has chosen to focus on systems for the production of so-called Light Guide Plates (LGP) for screens and displays. An LGP is a plastic plate or film that directs and scatters light out the front. TC TECH is now entering the commercialization phase, having recently received its first order for a production system from a customer in Taiwan. The company’s ambition is to secure orders for 10 additional systems in 2016, from the Asian screen industry. Background and purpose TC TECH’s technology is based on ten years of dedicated R&D. In the past few years, the company has developed production systems that have met with strong interest in the screen industry. TC TECH has well-established contacts with the leading manufacturers of screens and screen components, and the company recently landed its first order from a customer in Taiwan. To pursue the planned commercialization and expansion, and to secure the operating capital needed when sales volumes grow in 2016, TC TECH now needs to strengthen its financial position. The planned new issue will result in a capital contribution of SEK 29.8 million before transaction costs, which will secure the financial strength needed for TC TECH to establish itself on the international market. Cornerstone investors (including the company’s Board of Directors and Management) have already guaranteed SEK 21.1 million of the issue. In combination with the pending listing on Nasdaq First North, the new share issue will provide market depth for the TC TECH share. The listing ensures access to the stock market, thus paving the way for future capital contributions that might be prompted by rapid growth and expansion. The listing further provides TC TECH with new shareholders who may, over time, contribute to the company’s growth and diversification. The pending listing is also expected to benefit TC TECH’s relations with partners, employees, suppliers, and – in particular –…Read more
