Asciano, 2009: The SPP was pitched at $100 million after a $1.58 billion institutional placement and circa $800 million entitlement offer, but after applications worth $290 million from 31,000 holders, this SPP cap was slightly increased by 1.5% to $101.5 million so all applicants could receive 35% of their application. See announcement.

Boart Longyear, 2009: $15,000 SPPs at 27c. Company received $US118m in applications from 10,000 shareholders but scaled this back to $US75 million with everyone getting around 65% of their application. See announcement.

Capitol Health, 2020: $30,000 SPP at 16c after $30m placement and stuck rigidly to its $10 million cap, scaling everyone back to a maximum of around $16,300, although it wasn't clear in this outcome announcement.
