LATECOERE : Recent developments
Corporate aircraft dispute resolved
Latécoère has closed the dispute with his client regarding the conditions of execution of a business jet contract. This has cemented the partnership in this program at its current scope, and should result in a partial reversal in the 2010 financial statements of the provision for losses on completion recognized at the end of 2009, which will strengthen the Group's favorable H1 2010 earnings trend.
Latécoère honored by Embraer
The Latécoère Group has just received two 2010 Best Supplier awards from Embraer respectively in the "Structure" and "Technical Support to Operators" categories.
At a ceremony held in Sao José dos Campos on November 9, 2010 where all of its suppliers were invited, Embraer emphasized that this was the first year it had ever given the same company two Best Supplier awards.
These awards were given in recognition of the quality of the services provided on the Embraer 170/190 program by the different entities of the Group's Aerostructures division:Latécoère do Brasil for fuselages, Letov, the Group's Czech subsidiary, for doors, and Latécoère for its management of the program and customer support.
Searching for a partnership
In line with its communication of May 21, 2010, the Group having streamlined its industrial organization in 2009 and 2010 and finalized a first step of financial restructuring in 2010, has initiated a search for a partnership.
