Shares on the move
PLL has a market cap of approximately $508.3 million and shares last traded at 42 cents.
Shares have risen from 8.7 cents on September 9 to a new high of more than 17 years at 66 cents on October 8 on the back of improving lithium market fundamentals and a spodumene supply agreement with Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) in late September.
The agreement is for an initial five-year term and covers spodumene concentrate from the company’s Piedmont project in North Carolina.
It is a fixed price binding purchase commitment from the delivery of first product and covers a fixed commitment representing around 33% of the company’s planned annual spodumene production of 160,000 tonnes.
This arrangement may also be extended by mutual agreement for a second five-year term.
