Britain's BAE Systems warned its 2020 earnings would fall due to COVID-19 disruption but said it would restart dividend payouts because it expected defence sector business to rebound in the second half of the year.

"We expect our defence business to respond positively and deliver a second-half earnings performance very much in line with our original expectations for 2020," Chief executive Charles Woodburn told reporters.
BAE Systems received a $33 million contract from the U.S. Army to further develop its Long Range Precision Guidance Kit for 155 mm artillery shells.
