The new shares generated an additional £548,500 investment in the business in order to expand its property portfolio.
Cybersecurity and risk management experts Crossword Cybersecurity Plc undertook an oversubscribed fundraising of more than £1.6 million. The technology commercialisation company will invest the funds into sales and marketing resource, for product development and support for general working capital purposes.
