Smart Metering Systems Plc (SMS) won the award for Best Newcomer Award at the 2011 AIM Awards.
The AIM Awards identify the quoted companies and entrepreneurs who have harnessed AIM to help them fulfil their ambition and growth potential in the last twelve months. SMS raised £10.0 million (gross) of new investment in July 11 by way of a substantially oversubscribed placing to fund the organic growth of the business through investment in gas meter assets and the Group's patent pending ADM smart metering device.
About the category - Best Newcomer of the Year Award
"The winner of this Award would quite simply be a strong contender for Company of the Year were it not due to the lack of a public company track record. Arriving on AIM between 1 August 2010 to 31 July 2011, the winner will already have caught the imagination of investors."
