With the successful Samsung litigation now in the rear-view mirror, Nanoco’s focus will be fully on building the business as a developer, manufacturer and licensor of nanomaterials. With its world-class expertise in quantum dots, validated IP and high-volume manufacturing facilities backed up by a strong balance sheet, we believe that the business has a robust platform for growth. Nanoco’s partnerships with STMicro and an Asian chemicals supplier position it strongly to participate in the anticipated adoption of infrared sensors in handsets and other mass consumer devices, which if all goes to plan could drive an inflection in revenues from late FY25 or early FY26.
