Meta Materials Inc (NASDAQ: MMAT) has been rocketing northbound in recent weeks. It’s an exciting story and one of the most exciting things happening in small caps right now. MMAT which spiked to over $20 per share in 2021 reversed off $0.63 lows in the first week of October and has been running northbound on record volume since then. A frequent mention on the sub reddit r/Shortsqueeze as an upcoming gamma squeeze, MMAT is already a central focus for MMTLP shareholders who have vowed to move all their profits into the stock once the Next Bridge Hydrocarbons Spin-Off plays out. MMAT will report its Q3 2022 financial results on Wednesday, November 9th, after the market close, followed by a webcast on Thursday, November 10, 2022, at 8:00 AM EDT.
With Nasdaq delisting worries behind it as MMAT will regain full compliance with the $1 bid requirements by Wednesday of this week MMAT has every reason to continue higher. The Company is making a big move into the EV battery space announcing on Friday it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding in partnership with DuPont Teijin Films and Mitsubishi Electric Europe. Using META’s PLASMAfusion®, the parties plan to scale a proprietary, high volume, roll-to-roll manufacturing system for film-based, coated copper current collectors. The film-based products will reduce battery weight and cost, improve energy efficiency, extend vehicle range, and enhance safety against the risk of battery fires (known as thermal runaway) compared to standard Li-Ion batteries for electric vehicles and other use cases.

u/sparkit420 on the subreddit: r/Shortsqueeze states: “Take a look at the (very recent) institutional ownership activity. Total institutional ownership is 14.2 % or about 42,811,580 shares https://finviz.com/quote.ashx?t=MMAT&p=d and over 57% of that (24,859,006 shares) has transacted since 8/01/22 including investments from at least 25 different institutions! Some interesting household names too. https://www.marketbeat.com/stocks/NASDAQ/MMAT/institutional-ownership/ Consider the volume as of late while you take a look at the options chain going out for the next two months. The open interest is getting down right serious. Not to mention the fact that there are only 25,000 shares available to short. https://iborrowdesk.com/report/MMAT. MM’s have already added 2.50 strike to the 11/11 expiration and if Friday’s AH run holds, they should add more on Monday.”
On November 1 META announced it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding in partnership with DuPont Teijin Films and Mitsubishi Electric Europe. Using META’s PLASMAfusion®, the parties plan to scale a proprietary, high volume, roll-to-roll manufacturing system for film-based, coated copper current collectors. The film-based products will reduce battery weight and cost, improve energy efficiency, extend vehicle range, and enhance safety against the risk of battery fires (known as thermal runaway) compared to standard Li-Ion batteries for electric vehicles and other use cases.
The MOU is focused on developing battery materials, such as coated copper current collectors and solid-state battery electrodes, as a multi-year project in several stages: a pilot-scale roll-to-roll system, to be followed by an industrial scale mass production line, and further development of the application to the production of solid-state batteries. META will contribute the PLASMAfusion® technology platform, system development and independent testing of finished cells; DuPont Teijin Films will develop and supply the polyester substrates, and Mitsubishi Electric Europe will contribute automation technology, expertise, and interface to machine builders.
According to an S&P Global Future of Copper report, the world may face a shortfall of between 1.6 and 9.9 million tons of copper by 2035. Even under an optimistic scenario, supply would not meet the copper demand required for net-zero emissions by 2050. An EV requires 2.5 times more copper than an ICE vehicle and the forecasted supply shortage needs a better solution than more mining. Current collectors used on the cathode and anode are made from aluminum and copper foils, respectively, and together contribute about 15% of the weight of the battery cell; the heavier copper material accounts more than 10%.
META’s PLASMAfusion® technology has already been demonstrated in a project funded by the UK Research and Innovation Faraday Battery Challenge. Thin layers of copper are deposited on both sides of a polyester substrate, reducing the weight of the current collector by up to 80%. Lighter weight increases energy density, extending vehicle range. The polyester inner layer acts like a fuse, helping to inhibit thermal runaway. This new battery technology can reduce the dependence on copper that is needed for the other parts of electric vehicles. With copper consumption in electric vehicles predicted to increase to 4 million tons annually by 2040, this innovation could save millions of tons of copper. Assuming a 65kWh battery pack, as larger and longer-range vehicles enter the market, META estimates a typical EV would require about 650 square meters of anode current collector material. Each GWh of battery capacity would require about 10 million square meters of material, enough to produce about 15,000 vehicles. To supply one million EVs would require 650 million square meters of anode current collector material. The improved energy density of these batteries is expected to not only increase the range of electric vehicles but also make electric aviation more feasible, as well as improve portable electronics and power tools.
$mmat is one @MrZackMorris tweet away from seeing $10. It’s the number one candidate on Reddit for potential short squeeze. Keep in mind so we’re $amc and $gme prior to their runs Can I get some retweets for our boy Zack to see this and moonshot it for us. pic.twitter.com/r3k6JmDEzo
