"The goal of our model, at the point any of our portfolio companies reach sufficient maturity and the market dynamics are appropriate, continues to be to provide our shareholders with continuous access to returns as we exit investments.

"Liberation Labs is Agronomics' key exposure to the infrastructure required to support the global shift towards more secure and sustainable methods of protein production via fermentation, representing a major opportunity for capital deployment in the coming decade. Not only is Liberation Labs building a first-of-a-kind facility, it is also creating an asset class for institutional investors to be able to participate in the food revolution, without having to underwrite significant technology and regulatory risk, yet with highly predictable cashflows," Executive Director Jim Mellon comments.
