Follow on investment in Gauzy Ltd, a world leader in smart glass and ADAS technologies

On March 29, 2023 Hamilton Global Opportunities plc completed a €333,350 follow on investment in Gauzy Ltd. Gauzy is a true pioneer of nanotechnology for light and vision control, is the only material science company in the world developing, manufacturing, and marketing two of the three active smart glass technologies: SPD and Liquid Crystal, and advanced ADAS (advanced driver assistance systems) including CMS (camera monitoring systems) for long body on road vehicles. Gauzy has significant development potential given the numerous high value-added applications in everyday life for its diverse product range, such as the possibility of instantly modulating the transparency or translucency of glass used in windows across the automotive and architectural industries for shading, privacy, and thermal regulation, and making vehicle operation safer with blind spot reduction through its high performance ADAS products.

Management of Foreign Exchange exposures

Hamilton Global Opportunities plc is exposed to movements in the EUR USD exchange rate which has remained volatile not only over the current accounting period but also since the company’s listing in April 2021. In order to mitigate the effect of this volatility on the financial results of the company management have implemented a hedging program. Under that hedging program management enters into enhanced forward hedging agreements which benefit from an option overlay whose purpose is to limit the potential downside of any such hedges. This hedging strategy has limited the negative impact of currency movements in the period to 30 June 2023 to €203 924 out of a total loss in the period of €315 634. However, over the entire period since listing in 2021 and despite significant volatility in the currency markets the hedging strategy has ensured that there has been little or no impact of those currency movements on the financial performance of the company.

Gustavo Perrotta, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Hamilton Global Opportunities plc declares: “We remain in active contact with our portfolio companies and despite extremely challenging market conditions our portfolio companies continue to perform well. This continued performance by our portfolio companies has underpinned the Net Asset Value of the portfolio and we remain confident that we are on course to meet our strategic objectives in the coming years.”
