    Solteq concluded an agreement with Suomen Lähikauppa on a significant expansion of services

    Long term business partners Solteq Plc and Suomen Lähikauppa Ltd have signed an agreement that complements the service package provided by Solteq to Lähikauppa.

    Solteq’s estimate of the value of the deal is more than four million euro spread over 2014-2016.

    - The agreement covers the delivery of all the maintenance and support services related to Lähikauppa’s retail systems as well as the management of these services. This means that we are, in accordance with our strategy, proceeding to a new area and thereby strengthening our position as a software service provider that specializes in the retail and service industry. The value of the deal is also significant for Solteq but it will not have an impact on our key ratio forecast for the current year, states Solteq’s CEO Repe Harmanen.
