Under the contract, Tritech Consultants will provide to LTA the required security deposit and performance guarantee by the group within the stipulated timeline set by LTA, said the group. 

It noted that the contract is not expected to have a material impact on the consolidated earnings per share and net tangible assets per share of the group for the current financial year ending March 31, 2021. 

Shares of Tritech closed down 0.1 Singapore cents to 1.5 cents on Thursday.

Amendment note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that Tritech will carry out design and construction work. It will in fact provide QPS services.
