Eligible Shareholders who do not participate in the Entitlement Offer, or participate for an amount that is less than their full Entitlement, will have their percentage Shareholding in the Company reduced or diluted.
Eligible Shareholders will receive a personalised Entitlement Form setting out their Entitlement with the copy of this Prospectus sent to them. Shareholders, who are not Eligible Shareholders, will not receive an Entitlement Form.

In the event that demand for the additional shortfall shares exceeds the number of shortfall shares that are available (if any), then there will be a scale back on a pro-rata basis in accordance with their entitlement.

The Company has been granted Junior Mineral Exploration Incentive (JMEI) credits for distribution to Australian resident shareholders who acquire new Peako shares (“Eligible Investors”) after 1 July 2023 and prior to 30 June 2024.
Australian resident shareholders that participate in the Entitlement Offer can expect to receive JMEI credits which they can offset directly against tax payable.
By way of illustration, assuming the Entitlement Offer is fully subscribed, shareholders participating in the Entitlement Offer may receive JMEI credits of up to $0.0014 (0.14 cents) per New Share. An Australian resident taxpayer subscribing for $10,000 in New Shares would, in this example, receive JMEI credits of $1,400 which would reduce their income tax payable by $1,400. The illustrative JMEI credit of $0.0014 (0.14 cents) per New Share is calculated as shown below:
Should additional equity be raised, other than via the current Entitlement Offer, then the JMEI credit per share calculation can be expected to differ including as follows:
