It said the energy management system company, which manufactured around 1.5 million utility meters per year, would integrate CyanConnode's hardware with its meters, and shipment to their production facility will take place over the next 12 to 18 months.
CyanConnode would also provide Head End Server Software, which would be hosted by the energy management system company, with annual software licence income being recognised over a ten-year contractual period following successful smart meter implementation.
The recurring revenue software licences and annual maintenance contract, which represented around 50% of the revised purchase order value, would be paid annually and charged on a per-meter, per-year basis.
This increased order from the Ukrainian company for utility customers in Bangladesh demonstrated the success of the company's scalable business model, the CyanConnode board claimed.
Additionally, it said the order size and revenue visibility provided by the 10-year contract reflected the company's leading position within the smart metering industry across both emerging markets and Europe. ■
