Further re: DHSC contract secured to support COVID-19 surge testing

Manchester, UK 10 September 2021: Yourgene (AIM: YGEN), a leading international molecular diagnostic group, announces that a Contract Award Notice has been published in relation to its contract with the Department of Health & Social Care ("DHSC") for the provision of laboratory capacity to the NHS Test and Trace Programme for COVID-19 testing, as announced on 19 August 2021 (RNS: 2020J).

https://www.contractsfinder.service.gov.uk/notice/b7ee1f61-0d00-4038-a45a-06eeb5c5aba9?origin=SearchResults&p=1

As previously announced, the contract is the first to come from the National Microbiology Framework Lot wins announced earlier this year, using Yourgene's high throughput automated COVID-19 services testing laboratory in Citylabs 1.0, Manchester.

The final contract notice value of GBP34m is the maximum estimated value of the contract. Actual value will depend on services purchased and there is no committed spend under the contract. However, the Company confirms that samples are already being processed as part of the contract.

Yourgene will provide an update for shareholders on first half trading on the morning of the Annual General Meeting due to take place on Tuesday 28 September 2021.

This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of the UK Market Abuse Regulation. The Directors of the Company take responsibility for this announcement.
