Sustained growth in activity, in line with 2013 guidance

In H1 2013, the Group posted revenue of ¤310.4 million, up +6.9% year on year (excluding non-recurring items). At a constant ¤/$ exchange rate, organic growth stood at +7.6%.

The Group recalls that during Q1 2012, non-recurring revenue of ¤62.5 million corresponding to billing of development costs was recorded.

Services activities significantly contribute to this growth both in Aerostructure (+13.1%) and within Interconnexion Systems, in a context of intense production rates.

The evolution of the activity in H1 2013 is consistent with the overall expected 5% growth for 2013 communicated by the Group on March 27, 2013.

A good order book renewal, which stood at 3.7 years of revenue

As of 30 June 2013 and based on a ¤/US$ exchange rate of 1.35, the order book - which includes only firm orders announced by aircraft manufacturers - amounted to ¤2.24 billion up to 6.1% growth on H1 2013. It represents around 3.7 years of revenue.

The dynamics of the order book illustrates the relevance of the choice of programs where the Group is positioned (commercial, regional and business aircrafts) which have recorded excellent orders in H1 2013; it also reflects the growth of both Aerostructures and Interconnexion Systems activities in design and manufacturing services, which are developed in an end-to-end approach of customer relationship.
