LATECOERE : Report of the Supervisory Board held on December, 10th 2009


On December 10th, the Supervisory Board has been updated on the latest developments regarding the disagreements Latécoère is facing over the execution of an aerostructure contract concerning a business jet programme.

Given the low probability to find an acceptable agreement in the foreseeable future, in application to IAS 11 rule, the Group will have to recognise losses in Q4 2009. This will lead the company to report negative results at both EBIT and net result levels for the full-year of 2009.

These losses have no impact on the amount of the Group's projected financial debt and on the cash position expected at the end of 2009. It could trigger modifications on the accounting classification of the debt as of December 31th, 2009.

However, this will lead the Group to undertake the necessary restructuring of its bank financial debt.

Given the level of uncertainties around these negotiations, the Company has decided to request from NYSE Euronext to maintain the trading suspension of its shares.
