ESA framework contract extension

TP Group (AIM: TPG), the providers of mission-critical solutions for a more secure world, announces that its subsidiary Sapienza Consulting has been awarded an extension to its framework contract with the European Space Agency ("ESA"). The framework agreement will now run until the end of December 2022.

The contract was initiated 1 July 2017 to supply resources and services to the European Space Technology Centre ("ESTEC") at Nordwijk in the Netherlands. At the end of March 2020, the contract will have generated approximately €31 million of revenue to the business. This extension adds a further 30 months to the framework agreement and is anticipated to run at a similar business volume over that term.

Phil Cartmell, Chief Executive Officer of TP Group, commented:


"The extension of this framework agreement is a welcome confirmation of the future business profile of Sapienza Consulting in the Netherlands, and it shows that under the current difficult operating conditions, institutions and business can continue and plan for the future. This award reflects the hard work and quality service that has been provided by our team over the last three years and positions us well to work with ESA on their exciting portfolio of future space missions."
