Ghana Screening Project Update

Westminster Group Plc (AIM: WSG), a leading supplier of managed services and technology-based security solutions worldwide, is pleased to report that the main contract (Contract) relating to the container screening project at Tema Port, Ghana, which Westminster has been operating since July 2019, has now been signed between Meridian Port Services and Scanport, confirming Westminster as the Technical Partner for the duration of the Contract and arrangements are now being made for a Westminster director to travel to Ghana to finalise the associated Scanport-Westminster contract. The Contract is for a renewable 5-year term. As previously announced the signing of these contracts had been delayed due to unrelated issues and have been considered a formality given Scanport and Westminster were appointed and operational from the Port opening in 2019.

We are also pleased to report that container volumes and revenues relating to the project continue to increase with the daily averages so far in 2020 being a 59% increase on the 2019 daily average and we expect volumes to increase further during 2020 as the port continues to expand and the third and fourth berths become operational.

Further details will be provided in due course.
