The NRW Holdings Limited (ASX: NWH) share price is on the slide today despite the company announcing a new contract award and an extended agreement. In early-afternoon trade, the diversified service provider’s shares are swapping hands for $2.05, down 0.49%.
The NRW share price is failing to hold onto earlier gains after the company released two positive updates this morning.
In the first of its releases, NRW advised that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Golding Contractors, has been awarded a civil works contract. The award was provided by ASX-listed real estate and investment group Lendlease Group (ASX: LLC).
Under the agreement, Golding Contractors will complete general subdivision and related infrastructure works at the Yarrabilba residential estate in Logan, Queensland.
NRW highlighted that the contract win extends its relationship with Lendlease, which began in October 2017.
The civil works project is expected to generate around $50 million in revenue for NRW. Works are scheduled to commence next month and be completed within the next three years.
In a second announcement today, NRW revealed that Golding Contractors has received a 12-month contract extension from Wonbindi Coal. The renewed deal will see Golding Contractors continue its works at the Baralaba North Mine.
The new award will add roughly $120 million in extra revenue for Golding Contractors, up until June 2022.
