23 September 2011 – contract award

The group has won a four year contract with Rileys, the operator of over 120 pool and snooker clubs to supply all their amusement and gaming machines.  This will entail providing over 400 machines and the contract will be worth some £2.5m. On the back of the contract renewal and extension from Marstons’s announced last week this is clearly another positive step for the group in its objective of becoming the largest operator of machines in the UK pub market.  The shares are a BUY.
