Ilika (IKA) – Capital Markets Day December 2019: Solid-state battery technology.
The CMD was held to enable investors to meet management and see the newly opened facilities in Hampshire. The roadmap for the future was outlined, where solid state batteries are important to EV development, but also for other early adopters, such as consumer electronics and domestic appliances. Guest speakers were Asad Farid, Analyst, Berenberg, on battery technology and the costs. And, Adam Collins, Analyst Liberum, about the EV road map.
