COVID-19 – A Message to FFT Customers

Dear Valued Customer,

Last week, the World Health Organisation declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. We want to assure you that Ava Group have a robust COVID-19 Pandemic Crisis Management Plan in place to protect the health and wellbeing of our employees, whilst ensuring that we continue to deliver a high-level of service to our customers.

We are currently on high-alert and the Ava Group management team is meeting regularly to ensure that we are able to react quickly in the event of a worsening situation and to ensure that all employees receive ongoing education and information on best hygiene practises. Utilising the information available from the World Health Organisation and the Federal Department of Health, we have already implemented the following measures:

  • All work-related international travel is restricted and requires CEO approval
  • All work-related interstate travel to be reviewed on a case by case basis
  • Employees that holiday overseas are required to self-quarantine for 14 days prior to returning to work
  • Where possible, employees have been encouraged to work from home using laptops with a secure connection to our network and mobile phones to remain in regular contact.

While the safety of our employees is paramount, we remain committed to proactively managing our production and delivery timelines to meet the ongoing needs of our customers. With manufacturing primarily based Australia, we are at least geographically isolated which may lessen the impact on our workforce. For now this threat remains low, but as the pandemic continues, the potential for product delay grows.

We will continue to monitor and respond to this evolving situation as needed, however during these uncertain times we encourage our customers to place the purchase orders for their important projects upon us as soon as possible to ensure timely fulfilment and delivery.

We trust that the this information provides reassurance that we are proactive in our approach to the safety of our employees and ensuring the capacity to deliver a high-level of ongoing service to our customers. We will continue to work closely with our suppliers and logistics operators to ensure any business disruptions are minimal.

If you have any further questions in relation to the Ava Group’s COVID-19 Pandemic Crisis Management Plan, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours Sincerely,

Scott Basham
Ava Group CEO

Purchase Order received for deployment of Future Fibre Technologies SecureLink technology for a major military Cybersecure data network project

AVA Risk Group Limited (ASX: AVA), a market leader of risk management services and technologies, announced today that it had received formal confirmation that the Purchase Order has been received and accepted by its in-country manufacturing partner, SFO Technologies Private Limited (SFO) in respect of the major Letter of Intent award announced to the ASX on 5 September 2018, as updated:

  • SFO has formally notified Ava that the Purchase Order has now been received and accepted.
  • Ava will receive an estimated US$11.9m (A$16.86m) over the next 14 months, paid as license fees.
  • Based on the current production and delivery schedules, it is anticipated that between US$0.35m and US$1.0m (A$0.5m and A$1.5m) revenue will be generated in FY2019 with the remaining revenue of between US$11.55m and US$10.9m (A$16.36m and $15.4m) expected in FY2020.
  • In addition, there is expected to be further revenue after the initial 3-year warranty period from a subsequent 7-year spares and maintenance contract, which has been estimated at US$3.4m (A$4.8m) over the warranty period.
  • Given the licence fee nature of the project, the contract will be highly profitable for Ava Group. Moreover, it’s expected that the project win should lead to further opportunities in the secure data network market.
  • Under the revised contract terms, Ava will be paid on 120-day terms (ex-works) and benefit from a bank guarantee equivalent to 200 units of product (circa 20% of total production volumes).
