As originally announced on 23 September 2019, further Ordinary Shares ("Holdback Shares") would be issued to the shareholders of Airsight on 30 September 2020, with the exact number calculated pro-rata against a revenue target for the total revenue achieved by Airsight products and services of A$1.5 million for the financial year ended 30 June 2020.
