Cobham Appoints Alan Semple as Non-Executive Director

Cobham plc announced the appointment of Alan Semple as a Non-executive Director. The appointment is to be effective at a date to be confirmed in the first quarter of 2015. He will also become a member of the Board's Audit Committee. Alan is currently Director and Chief Financial Officer at John Wood Group plc, a role he has held since 2000. Prior to this, he held a number of senior finance roles in the Group from 1996.

Cobham plc Wins AMSA Contract to Provide Airborne Search and Rescue Capability

Cobham plc has secured the Australian Maritime Safety Authority, or AMSA, contract to provide an airborne search and rescue capability in Australia for 12 years from 2016, with aircraft modification and mobilization activity. AMSA utilises aircraft based in strategic locations across Australia to perform search and rescue tasks such as searching for missing people, locating activated distress beacons, providing communications support at an incident and dropping survival equipment to people in distress. The contract, secured through open industry competition, has a value including estimated flying charges of AUD 640 million over 12 years. If three additional optional years are exercised by AMSA, the full value would exceed AUD 700 million. Cobham will acquire, modify, commission and then operate and maintain four Bombardier Challenger CL-604 special mission jet aircraft to provide a search and rescue capability over land and at sea. These aircraft will be specially modified to Australian requirements and fitted with new generation sensors, high-vision windows and air operable doors for aerial delivery of life saving equipment. Much of the modification work will be undertaken at Cobham's facilities in Adelaide, South Australia. The aircraft will be based in Cairns, Melbourne and Perth.

Cobham plc Provides Interim Management Statement for the Nine Months Ended September 2014; Provides Revenue Guidance for 2014 and 2015

Cobham plc provided interim management statement for the nine months ended September 2014. The group's trading performance in the first nine months of 2014 has been in line with the Board's expectations with underlying market conditions remaining largely unchanged in the period since the group's interim results announcement in August. At the end of September, the company's net debt had increased to £1.2 billion compared to £0.3 billion as at June 30, 2014, driven by the acquisition of Aeroflex. Consistent with the current trading performance, the Group continues to anticipate that organic revenue will decline by low-to-mid single digits in 2014. This is against a background of ongoing challenges in defence/security markets, partially offset by strong growth in commercial markets. This also assumes continued good order momentum in the Group's short cycle businesses in both defence/security and commercial markets. On the basis of a moderating rate of decline in the US defence/security market, increasing revenue from non-US defence/security markets and continued strong growth in commercial markets, the Board continues to anticipate that the company can deliver mid-single digit organic revenue growth from 2015. This is further underpinned by the significant and strategic acquisition of Aeroflex, which brings complementary technology and increases the Group's exposure to attractive commercial end markets.
