Paris, April 11, 2011

Morpho (Safran group) has been selected by Australian lottery operator Tattersall's Holdings Pty Ltd (Tatts), after international bidding, to supply and maintain 5,000 lottery terminals and 3,500 ticket checkers. Its subsidiary Morpho Australasia signed a ten-year framework contract to support Tatts' business development, including the expansion of its fleet of lottery terminals.
