Ava Risk Group Limited (ASX: AVA) (Ava Group or Company) is pleased to confirm that its Technology Division has received additional orders for Future Fibre Technologies’ (FFT) world leading perimeter detection systems from exisiting government clients:

  • A$630k of purchase orders for FFT’s Aura Ai-2 platform have been received to protect sensitive US Government sites.
  • A$350k of purchase orders for FFT’s SecureFence platform have been received to protect military installations in a South East Asian country.
  • It is anticipated that around 55% of the value of the above mentioned purchase orders will ship and be booked as revenue in the current quarter.

Ava Group Chief Executive, Scott Basham said, “In a world of heightened security, our customers are looking to Ava to harden their security and improve their risk management processes. More than half of the value of the purchase orders are for upgrading sites protected by FFT’s legacy technology. The receipt of these purchase orders further demonstates the superior nature of our products and the large addressable market to upgrade the 1,900 systems already installed within our large global customer base.

Ava remains on track to achieve our guidance of A$9m or more for Q2, and A$19m or better for H1 FY2020 for the underlying business – excluding any contribution from the Indian MOD (IMOD) project.”
