Contract Win


Holdings plc (ULE) and Sparton DLS, LLC announce the award of subcontracts valued at $204.6 million to their ERAPSCO joint venture for the manufacture of sonobuoys for the United States Navy. The award is a GFY2020 delivery order for sonobuoy requirements under ERAPSCO's five-year Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity contract with the Department of the Navy.  


Simon Pryce, Chief Executive Officer of Ultra Electronics, commented:  


"As expected, this is another significant order for Ultra under the IDIQ contract we were awarded in August last year. This contract underpins our increased focus on anti-submarine warfare and our ability through ERAPSCO to provide a range of key technologies and capabilities to support the U.S. Navy's continued commitment to this important mission.


This award also reflects that, despite the challenges created by Covid 19, we are operating effectively and continue to support our customers due to the extraordinary efforts of our exceptional and committed team".


This announcement is in line with Ultra's policy to announce orders of over 5% of Group sales.
