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

By end September 2011, the Group posted a revenue, excluding non-recurring items, of ¤373.1 million, up +16.8% year on year.  At a constant ¤/$ exchange rate, organic growth stood at +19.1%, hedging unwinds offsetting a weakening US $.

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 consolidated revenue as at September 30, 2011 reached ¤428.1 million.

In a context of strong recovery of the aeronautical sector, all divisions contribute to this growth, thus offering to Latécoère Group its sixth consecutive quarter of growth.

FY 2011 revenue expected to increase by over 10% (excluding non-recurring items)

Based on actual growth recorded by end September and the latest delivery rates released by aircraft manufacturers, the Group confirms that total revenue growth for the year is expected to exceed 20%. Excluding non-recurring billings of development costs, revenue growth should be over 10%.

No industrial partnership by the end of the year, but an unchanged will to contribute to the  sector's consolidation in the next 2-3 years.

The success of the A320 NEO and the launch of the B737 MAX, combined with the ramp up of the major programs under development (A380, B787), are leading aircraft manufacturers and their suppliers to focus primarily on the ramping up of programs boosted by accelerating production rates.

Under these conditions, the Group, which captures the full effect of the cycle upturn of the sector - thanks in particular to its strong positions in the commercial aircraft programs (A320, A330, A380 and B787) -  has decided, in conjunction with its banks, to reposition its search for an industrial partner in the next 2-3 years. Latécoère is confirming its will to contribute actively to the industrial consolidation of the sector.
