The ASX hit pause on the shares shortly after the open on Friday and they've been in limbo ever since. Prior to the halt, the Pointerra share price was fetching 34.5 cents, down 4.17% on its previous close.
Let's take a closer look at what's happening.
Why is Pointerra on ASX ice?
Pointerra requested the trading halt amid the pending release of a price-sensitive announcement.
The company says this is concerning "the award of material contracts in its US operation". There are no further details available at this time.
The halt will remain in place until the earlier of Pointerra making the abovementioned ASX announcement or the market open next Tuesday 14 December.
The announcement follows Pointerra's previous contract updates in September. At that time, the company had secured a $1.55 million contract with Florida Power & Light across 4 projects.
It also advised of another contract with Pacific Gas & Electric and Gridvision, each valued at approximately $250,000.
The contracts involve using Pointerra's geospatial 3D technology to model changes in key data metrics that the 2 new partners use in their operations.
For instance, the deal with Florida Power & Light will see Pointerra's technology model changes in vegetation growth. It will then extrapolate this data to predict vegetation growth, which will hopefully facilitate increased yields.
