Smoltek enters into agreement with DC Advisory as strategic advisor for the company’s expansion

DC Advi­so­ry is a lead­ing glob­al finan­cial advi­sor with exper­tise in indus­tri­al trans­ac­tions, with a net­work in the semi­con­duc­tor and elec­tron­ics indus­try as well as in addi­tion­al indus­tri­al seg­ments where Smoltek’s tech­nol­o­gy could bring poten­tial ben­e­fits. As a sub­sidiary of the invest­ment bank Dai­wa Cap­i­tal Mar­kets, DC Advi­so­ry is a part of the Japan­ese com­pa­ny group Dai­wa Secu­ri­ties Group.

In recent years, Smoltek has main­ly focused on its CNF-MIM tech­nol­o­gy for pro­duc­tion of minia­tur­ized capac­i­tors. In the company’s assess­ment, this tech­nol­o­gy has now reached the lev­el of matu­ri­ty nec­es­sary for sign­ing licens­ing agree­ments in the semi­con­duc­tor and elec­tron­ics indus­try. Smoltek’s broad tech­nol­o­gy plat­form, accom­pa­nied by an exten­sive patent port­fo­lio, has also opened new pos­si­bil­i­ties in addi­tion­al areas of high interest.

“Our tech­nol­o­gy has a fan­tas­tic poten­tial, and we are becom­ing an even more inter­est­ing actor in the large and grow­ing mar­ket we are oper­at­ing in. With DC Advisory’s exper­tise and net­work behind us, we will increase our pres­ence in the glob­al mar­ket,” says Anders Johansson.
