L to R: Dr Kevin Moriarty, CEO of 1414 Degrees and Marie Pavlik, CEO of SiliconAurora Pty Ltd


1414 Degrees Limited (ASX:14D) (Company) is pleased to offer shareholders an opportunity to participate in a Share Purchase Plan (SPP) targeted to raise approximately $3.0 million. 

Under the SPP, eligible shareholders will be invited to subscribe for up to $30,000 of new fully paid ordinary shares in the Company (Shares) at an issue price of $0.16 (16 cents) per new Share, free of all brokerage and commissions. 


Rationale and Use of Proceeds 

The SPP allows eligible shareholders to participate in the Company‘s capital raising program at an integral stage in its development.  

The funds raised in our IPO have been used for the successful demonstration of our electrically charged pilot TESS and the commissioning of the pilot biogas TESS at SA Water‘s Glenelg Wastewater Treatment Plant. Our prospectus plan to develop a grid scale TESS storage solution with the ability to stabilise electricity supply has attracted the interest of industries seeking to reduce their energy costs and carbon emissions. Industry is recognising the benefits of accessing a combination of heat and electricity to maximise the financial value of our technology in their operations. 

The proceeds of the SPP will enable your Company to advance its emissions reduction and grid stability strategy by advancing the development of a silicon power plant, pairing our TESS technology with the large solar PV generation capacity of the recently acquired Aurora Solar Energy Project in Port Augusta, South Australia (Aurora Project). The Aurora Project, to be operated by the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary SiliconAurora Pty Ltd, is planning to electrify heat energy, otherwise produced by fossil fuels, to reduce industrial emissions in the Upper Spencer Gulf region, while simultaneously firming power.   

Proceeds will also be used to fund further upgrades to the GAS-TESS in support of first commercial sales, and for general working capital purposes. 

I encourage all shareholders to take up an allocation under the SPP to enable your Company to realise the potential of its strategy.  

Participation in the SPP is entirely voluntary. 


Share Purchase Plan 

The offer of Shares under the SPP (SPP Offer) is being made exclusively to shareholders who were registered as holders of Shares at 7.00pm (AEDT) on 21 February 2020 (Record Date) and whose registered address is in Australia or New Zealand (Eligible Shareholders).   

The SPP Offer is targeting to raise approximately $3.0 million by way of the issue of 18,750,000 Shares (New Shares) and entitles Eligible Shareholders, irrespective of the size of their shareholding, to purchase up to $30,000 worth of New Shares at an issue price of $0.16 per New Share. The Company may elect to either scale back applications or increase the amount to be raised under the SPP Offer, subject to compliance with applicable regulatory requirements. 

You may apply for parcels of New Shares in $1,000 increments with a minimum investment amount of $1,000, up to a maximum investment of $30,000, without incurring brokerage costs.
