Contract Win from Major UK Retailer



Advanced Power Components plc (AIM: PLC) is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, Minimise Limited, has been awarded a second order from a major UK retailer for energy efficient LED lights for up to 80 store locations. The order received, valued initially at £2 million, covers preliminary product procurement and store survey costs. The final order value will be confirmed once product quantities have been determined following the store surveys. This contract follows the successful execution of the order previously announced in September 2012 under which 34 stores were completed. Work for this contract is expected to commence in January 2013.


The board remains optimistic that Minimise is well positioned to win further orders in the near future.


Mark Robinson, CEO of APC, commented:


"Being awarded a follow on contract from such a prestigious customer is particularly gratifying as it represents a big vote of confidence in the ability of Minimise Limited to deliver energy saving products and services successfully. We are increasingly convinced that the growth potential for LED lighting and other green technologies is significant and that Minimise is well positioned to capitalise on the opportunity."
