XMOS secures $19M funding to accelerate growth

30th September 2019, Bristol, UK – XMOS, a Bristol-based technology company, today announces the completion of a new $19 million financing round – fuelling the company’s global growth, consolidating its technical leadership in far-field voice interfaces and developing a new product roadmap for the Artificial Intelligence of Things.

The funding will support XMOS’s continued growth and an expanded global footprint, including new staff, in its Hong Kong office. This investment will enable the company to capitalise on its technical leadership in the far-field voice interface market, working with leading OEMs around the world.

The funding will also support the development of XMOS’ AIoT (Artificial Intelligence of Things) solution portfolio. This will build on the company’s 10-year pedigree in deep technology solutions for consumer devices, expanding its product-set into a potentially transformative market that will fuel new digital and data services in the smart homes, smart cities and smart factories of the future.

The $19 million investment round comprised equity funding, with participation from existing investors, and a venture debt facility with Harbert European Growth Capital.

Mark Lippett, President and CEO of XMOS, said: “We’re very grateful for the ongoing commitment of our existing investors and welcome Harbert to our exciting journey. This increased investment will be a major part of the growth of the company as we ramp up the rollout of our exceptional XVF3510 2-mic voice interface and accelerate our AIoT roadmap.”

David Bateman, Senior Managing Partner at Harbert European Growth Capital, said: “We have structured our venture debt facility to help later stage scale-ups just like XMOS gain access to capital without diluting its existing shareholders.  We’re delighted to join XMOS in its drive to scale its existing business and position itself for the huge opportunity represented by the AIoT.”
