- Mercia Technologies has committed to invest £1.5m of a £4.0m investment round into Impression Technologies Ltd, an aluminium forming company based on intellectual property developed at the University of Birmingham and Imperial College London.

This investment joins investment from Imperial Innovations plc and will enable the establishment of an innovative press facility.

This additional capital follows a long-standing investment by the Group's third party funds managed by its wholly owned subsidiary, Mercia Fund Management ("MFM").

Following this investment, Mercia will have an 18% direct holding in Impression Technologies, and the Group will control 26% of the business when its stake via its third party funds are included.
