Audited figures

Sustained growth in activity further bolstered by non recurring billings of development costs

H2 2011 revenue reached ¤259.3 million, up 4.8% versus H2 2010 which had itself posted a growth of 17.3%. The Group, which thus recorded its seventh consecutive quarter of growth, ended the year with total revenue, excluding non-recurring items, of ¤520.6 million, up 12.1% year on year, in line with its stated expectations.

At a constant ¤/$ exchange rates, organic growth stood at 14.1% ;  hedging unwinds limiting the effect of a -4.7% depreciation of the ¤/$ spot parity, which averaged 1.392 over 2011.

The Group also recorded in Q1 2011 an additional non-recurring revenue of ¤55 million corresponding to billing of development costs (refer to press release dated March, 22 2011). As a result, total FY 2011 consolidated revenue reached ¤575.6 million.

All divisions are benefiting from the upward cycle of the aeronautical industry, with a strong momentum of Engineering & Services recorded both in tooling and services;  Aerostructures, present on all segments of the market, capture the full effect of the recovery.

2012 outlook:  an expected revenue growth of 10 %

Based on the latest delivery rates released by aircraft manufacturers, the Group anticipates for 2012 a further growth of its activities with total revenue up by about 10%, excluding non-recurring billings of development costs.

As non-recurring billings of development costs should reach ¤60 million in 2012, total revenue growth is also expected to rise by about 10%.

Order book: over 4 years of revenues

As of December 31, 2011 and on the basis of a ¤/$ exchange rate of 1.35, the order book - which includes only firm orders announced by aircraft manufacturers - amounts to ¤2.2 billion. Favourably impacted by the recent orders recorded by its main clients, it represents more than 4 years of revenue, and demonstrates the relevance of the multi-client platform built by the Group, which is confirmed for all the major, determinant programs launched for commercial, regional and corporate aircraft in the medium and long term.
