Lead partner Harry Kingsley said that it was exciting to witness a “technology change agent” such as Titomic embraced by Australia’s financial markets.

“We are pleased that Holding Redlich has been able to have assisted this leading-edge company take its next step to commercialisation,” Mr Kingsley said.

He explained that the company’s Titomic Kinetic Fusion technology had versatile applications across a range of industries.

“By spraying a titanium metal powder at supersonic speeds, particles impact and bond with the scaffold material,” Mr Kingsley said.

“This means that as well as high-volume applications such as sporting goods, automotive and medical equipment, the technology could be used to manufacture low-volume, high-value components for the aerospace.”

Pac Partners acted as the underwriter and lead manager of the IPO for Titomic. The investigating accountants for the IPO were Pitcher Partners.
