Airbus Defence and Space to Build EUTELSAT 172B

Airbus Defence and Space has just been awarded a contract by Eutelsat to design and build a highly innovative high-performance (hosting a C-band, a Ku-band and a high throughput payload) telecommunications satellite. The new satellite will be launched in first half 2017, making it the first European satellite to demonstrate electric propulsion for orbit raising. EUTELSAT 172B is based on the highly reliable Eurostar E3000 platform from Airbus Defence and Space, representing its latest evolution EOR (Electric Orbit Raising). This version uses only electric propulsion for initial orbit raising and all on-orbit manoeuvres, with the reduction in mass enabling the powerful satellite to be launched with the Ariane 5 lower position, offering lower launch costs. In-orbit raising is expected to take approximately four months. The satellite will have electric power of 13 kW, with a launch weight of only 3,500 kg. It also incorporates other solutions, in particular the flexibility to dynamically distribute power between the set of beams connected to its high throughput payload. EUTELSAT 172B will host three distinct payloads: A C-band payload of 14 physical transponders delivering increased power and broader coverage to enhance service and tap into new growth markets in South East Asia. A regular Ku-band payload of 36 physical transponders that will more than double capacity at 172 East. Transponders will be connected to five improved service areas: North Pacific, North East Asia, South East Pacific, South West Pacific and South Pacific. A high throughput Ku-band payload specifically designed for in-flight broadband, featuring multiple user spots optimised to serve densely-used Asian and trans-Pacific flight paths and interconnected to gateways operating in the Ka band. This new payload will be the first customised for in-flight connectivity over the Pacific Ocean Region, delivering an overall throughput of 1.8 Gbps to an underserved market forecast to enjoy sustained growth over the coming years.

Airbus Group Reports Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and First Half Ended June 30, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2014 and 2015

Airbus Group reported earnings results for the second quarter and first half ended June 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company announced revenues of EUR 14,553 million compared to EUR 13,576 million a year ago. EBIT was EUR 1,120 million compared to EUR 889 million a year ago. Net income was EUR 696 million or EUR 0.89 per share compared to EUR 531 million or EUR 0.66 per share a year ago. Revenues rose 7% compared to the second quarter of 2013 driven by higher deliveries at Airbus. EBIT rose 26% mainly driven by mainly operational performance while positive one-offs were higher in the quarter compared to a year ago. For the first half, the company reported Group revenues increased 6% to EUR 27.2 billion compared to EUR 25.7 billion a year ago driven by increased deliveries of commercial jets and helicopters with flat revenues at Airbus Defence and Space. Group EBIT before one-off - an indicator capturing the underlying business margin by excluding material non-recurring charges or profits caused by movements in provisions related to programmes and restructurings or foreign exchange impacts - improved to EUR 1,769 million compared to EUR 1,614 million a year ago. EBIT before one-off for Airbus rose to EUR 1,287 million compared to EUR 1,231 million a year ago, reflecting operational improvement but was weighed down by A350 XWB support costs and a more front-loaded research and development (R&D) expense profile compared to 2013. EBIT before one-off at Airbus Helicopters rose to EUR 150 million compared to EUR 128 million a year ago, reflecting the Super Puma recovery and services activities. The Group EBIT before one-off return on sales were 6.5% compared to 6.3% a year ago. Reported EBIT increased 24% to EUR 1,839 million compared to EUR 1,478 million a year ago. The finance loss was EUR 252 million compared to EUR 417 million a year ago while net income increased to EUR 1,135 million compared to EUR 758 million a year ago or earnings per share (EPS) of EUR 1.45 compared to EUR 0.94 a year ago. Net income and EPS also reflected favorable foreign exchange effects. Negative free cash flow before acquisitions improved significantly to EUR 2,270 million compared to EUR 4,060 million a year ago, reflecting tight cash control and investment in production and development programmes. EBITDA was EUR 2,773 million compared to EUR 2,335 million a year ago. EBIT was EUR 1,839 million compared to EUR 1,478 million a year ago. The Group expects the world economy and air traffic to grow in line with prevailing independent forecasts and assumes no major disruptions. In 2014, Airbus deliveries should be about the same level as in 2013, including the first A350 XWB delivery. Group revenues should be stable compared to 2013. Using EBIT before one-off, the Group expects moderate return on sales growth in 2014. The Group is targeting breakeven free cash flow before acquisitions in 2014. For the year 2015, return on sales target of 7-8% is unchanged pre A330neo development, which is assessed to have a net impact of around -70 basis points. The EBIT and EPS performance of the Group will depend on the Group's ability to limit one-off charges.
