("EU Supply", the "Company" or the "Group")
EU Supply (LSE AIM: EUSP), the e-procurement software provider, is pleased to announce that it has received its fourth contract (the "Contract") pursuant to the framework agreement entered into with an existing customer (the "Customer") for additional services to its CTMTM platform which was announced by the Company on 16 June 2017 (the "Agreement").
The Agreement is for 3 years with a further year at the Customer's option and has a total value of up to €3.6m. The Contract comprises customer-paid enhancements and is expected to generate revenues of approximately €675k, bringing the total value of the contracts called-off under the Agreement to date to, in aggregate, approximately €1.9m.
In order to free up capacity to deliver the anticipated increased growth in enhancements and integrations for existing and new customers expected in 2018, the Company will accelerate the delivery of half of the Contract in the remainder of this year. As a result, the Board expects that the Group's revenues for the year ending 31 December 2017 will slightly exceed market expectations while, due to the increased cost of delivering the Contract by using consultants, the Group's operating profit for the year ending 31 December 2017 is expected to be in line with market expectations.
