BAE stock rose around 1% in London trading on Monday, while shares in rival Thales Group, which has a history of supplying the U.K. military, fell near 3%. BAE is a FTSE 100 constituent and one of the world’s largest defense and aerospace companies.
Britain handed a 2.4 billion pound ($3.20 billion) contract to BAE Systems on Monday, agreeing a new deal with the country's biggest defence company for the supply of weapons to help keep jobs and boost investment in its pandemic-hit economy. BAE said the contract would sustain around 4,000 jobs across the UK, and enable it to invest 70 million in upgrading manufacturing lines, with most of the investment due to take place by 2026. "Defence underpins hundreds of thousands of jobs across all four corners of the nation, and ongoing investment is crucial as we work together to build back better and stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic," Jeremy Quinn, a junior defence minister, said in a statement.
