INTERCEDE GROUP plc

('Intercede', the ‘Company' or the ‘Group')

New Contract Award

Intercede, the software and service company specialising in identity, credential management and secure mobility, announces that a Middle Eastern country has selected Intercede’s MyID solution to power the issuance of mobile government identities to its citizens.

Under this program, any citizen with an existing national identity card will be able to easily and securely generate a new government digital identity on their smart phone via a government app. Using Intercede MyID software, this digital identity can then be used for accessing a mobile eco-system of government services, health care, banking and e-commerce. This will significantly increase the efficiency and security of public service delivery and return enhanced privacy and convenience to citizens and consumers.

For the customer country, this solution will catapult them to being a world-leading nation for the mobile-first delivery of digital services.

For Intercede, this is a strategically important project that exploits many of the new technologies Intercede has developed over the last two years. The contract was secured through an existing Intercede regional channel partner and is anticipated to be the first of many such orders around the world.

This contract will have an initial new order value of more than £1,000,000 and will also generate recurring annual fees. Appropriately 50% of this initial contract value is expected to be received within the next 30 days with the remainder expected to be received in Intercede’s financial year ending 31 March 2019, based on Intercede fulfilling certain commercial milestones.

Richard Parris, Chairman & Chief Executive of Intercede, said: “I am pleased that the recent investment we have made in new mobile identity technology is starting to generate significant orders. We have used the last two years to develop a competitively differentiated mobile identity platform in a market with high barriers to entry. Through our network of partners, Intercede is now in an excellent position to capitalise on this lead in multiple geographic territories. As I stated in the Intercede’s 2017 Annual Report, establishing Intercede at the heart of critical eco-systems is central to our strategy. This contract is the manifestation of that pledge and is a top tier reference customer for other nations to follow.”
