Company Announcements are free of charge after 20 minutes. Long company announcements are often published in parts by the ASX. Where an announcement has been divided alphabetically, into parts, a part letter (Part A, Part B, Part C,...) indicates the viewing order.

NTA is a cents per share figure rounded to whole cents. Where NTA is negative this is indicated by a "-" sign.

Calculation: (Assets - Intangible Assets - Liabilities) / Issued = NTA x Dilution Factor(s).
