KUWAIT, May 31 (FAM) – Logistics group Agility has settled its long-running US legal case with an agreement to pay a US$95 million civil penalty, allowing the Kuwait-headquartered firm to resume the pursuit of new US government contracts – once a key business line.

The legal case has been ongoing since 2009 and involved its role as a leading logistics supplier to the US military in the Middle East, where it had ‘Prime Vendor’ US government food-supply contracts from 2003 to 2010. The contracts spanned seven years, involved nearly 200,000 invoices to the US government, and were valued at over $8.6 billion.
