TEPCO major contract expansion and COVID-19 update

IQGeo Group plc (AIM: IQG) is pleased to announce, in working with its partner NESIC, an expansion of its contract with Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), Japan's largest electrical network operator, valued in total at £1.8m on a subscription basis over the next three years.

 

TEPCO deploys the IQGeo software as part of a critical and highly visible disaster assessment and recovery strategy for increasingly frequent severe weather events impacting Japan. The IQGeo software plays a key role in capturing current, accurate storm damage with mobile field crews and gives their operations centre the geospatial view they need to assess and plan safe and effective response strategies that enable rapid restoration of vital electrical services. This contract was already factored into the Board's expectations for the current and future financial years.

 

Separately the Company is very mindful of the potential impact of Covid-19 on its business and has implemented temporary strategies to ensure the impact of the challenges of Covid-19 on operating cash levels is limited. The Company's current backlog has not been materially impacted to date, but the Company is conscious that social distancing measures globally may slow the rate of new orders during this period.

 

Richard Petti, CEO at IQGeo, said "We are very pleased with our continued collaboration with TEPCO and our channel partner NESIC in Japan.  This substantial contract expansion demonstrates that IQGeo software is viewed as mission critical by our customers, and also confirms the continued pattern of multi-year contract expansions from initial installation dates."
