Ava Risk Group Limited (ASX: AVA) (Ava Group or Company) is pleased to provide the following market update with respect to its Services Division, Ava Global DMCC:

  • Ava has been awarded a 12 month contract with a Central Bank for the secure transportation of banknotes which will generate estimated annual revenue of $2.1m
  • Additional new service agreements also executed with three (3) Commercial Banks, and one (1) other Central Bank
