Heinz Schimmelbusch, AMG’s CEO, said, “The CEM segment is at the center of AMG’s growth investments, each of which fit within AMG’s core strategy to enable C02 reduction utilizing advanced material technologies. Energy storage materials add a new dimension to this strategy as batteries enable higher efficiency in the intermittent renewable energy sector. We are very pleased with the investor reception to AMG’s capital increase, which was more than 2 times oversubscribed, and is indicative of the market’s appreciation for our growth strategy.”
