The company will build and upgrade a Safe City system in a Central African nation for 30 million NIS.
The 30 million NIS contract follows the award of two recent contracts in Central Africa in the areas of homeland security, national security policy, and energy.
Holon, August 16, 2017: MER Group (TASE: CMER), provider of telecom, security, intelligence, and cyber solutions, announced that it was awarded the contract to establish and upgrade a Safe City in a Central African country valued at 30 mil.
The award of the project, which is expected to be completed towards the end of the first quarter of 2018, comes on the heels of the announcement earlier in the week of the award of two other contracts in central Africa in the areas of homeland security, national security policy, and energy, totaling NIS 30 million.
Nir Lempert, MER Group’s CEO ““The signing of the recent contracts was achieved thanks to the Group’s focus on the HLS sector, and this, despite the general trend in Africa over the past year pointing to a decline in investment on the continent. We are sustaining our strong efforts and expanding activities in the fields of HLS, cyber security, and intelligence around the world.”
