Under the SPP, existing eligible shareholders will have the opportunity to purchase up to $30,000 new shares at the same price as the placement.

The SPP is capped at $50 million and PL8 may scale back applications if the demand exceeds this cap.

This SPP is scheduled to open at 10:00 am AEDT on Friday, November 5.

PL8 has now entered into a trading halt as it completes the capital raise, meaning shares will be paused until Friday, November 5.

On the market, PL8 last traded at $1.29 per share.
