DRS Data & Research Services to be Marginally Ahead of Market Expectations

DRS Nigerian contract doubles in size leading to better than expected results

​Earlier this year the Group won an order for supply of PhotoScribe® scanning machines to the National Examinations Council in Nigeria.  This order was originally anticipated to be delivered during the first quarter of 2013.

The Group report they are pleased to announce the size of this order has now been doubled from its original specification and also that half of the scanning machines will be delivered this month with the balance remaining for delivery during the first quarter of 2013.

 As a direct consequence of this, the Board now anticipates that the Group's profit for the current year is likely to be marginally ahead of market expectations.
