LONDON (Reuters) - British defence contractor BAE Systems (BAES.L) said that a 5 billion pound contract to sell 24 Typhoon fighter jets to Qatar became effective on Tuesday after conditions were met, giving ...
Army Secretary Mark Esper says he sees “good signals” that BAE Systems Plc is working to resolve quality and management problems at its Pennsylvania facility that risk delaying key military vehicles. “Steady progress -- it is the trajectory,” as is “continued engagement” with Army leaders, Esper said after spending about four hours at the plant in York on Thursday. At stake is whether BAE will be able to meet the Army’s accelerated schedule to deploy a brigade of its new Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicles, or AMPVs, to Europe and to receive eventual approval from the service to enter full production for its self-propelled howitzer in contracts valued at as much as $1.3 billion.

In fact, many investors often forget the stocks that trade on the Over the Counter Bulletin Board (OTCBB). Some refer to these OTC stocks to buy as equities that trade on the “pink sheets,” named for the color of the paper on which they were printed before electronic trading became more widespread. Stocks end up on the pink sheets either because they either fail to meet or have not attempted to meet the listing requirements of the New York Stock Exchange or the Nasdaq.
It’s another busy day for European corporate news, with forecast-beating numbers from Air France-KLM, BNP Paribas and Lloyds Banking the highlights of a fresh batch of company earnings.
Britain's biggest defence company BAE Systems (BAES.L) stuck to its forecast for flat earnings this year, saying that some issues at U.S. projects and in its maritime unit would be offset by a stronger performance from other parts of the business. BAE, which is building Britain's new nuclear submarines, manufactures Eurofighter Typhoon jets and provides electronics for the F-35 combat jet, posted a 2 percent drop in underlying earnings per share to 19.8 pence for the half year period. "With a large order book and a positive outlook for defence budgets in a number of key markets, we have a strong foundation to deliver growth and sustainable cash flow," Chief Executive Charles Woodburn said in a statement on Wednesday.
BAE Systems Plc earnings fell almost 10 percent in the first half as Europe’s biggest defense company booked hits against its U.S. operations, offsetting gains from major contract wins. Underlying earnings before interest, tax and amortization dropped to 874 million pounds ($1.14 billion) from 967 million pounds a year earlier, London-based BAE said in a statement Wednesday. While BAE has won contracts to provide military vehicles to the U.S. army, warships to the Australian navy and fighter jets to the Qatari air force, it posted additional costs at a munitions plant in Radford, Virginia, and for the wind-down of U.S. shipbuilding programs.
Airbus (AIR.PA) Chief Executive Tom Enders sought on Thursday to clarify recent comments about fighter consolidation in Europe, saying he did not see a corporate merger of the combat jet activities of Airbus, BAE Systems (BAES.L) or others any time soon. Enders, who was quoted earlier this week as raising the prospect of a merger, told reporters in an earnings conference call that he had been talking instead about the need for European nations to co-operate on competing fighter projects. "Of course, I was not suggesting that we should merge the military aircraft activities of BAE, Airbus and whoever else rightaway," said Enders, who had failed to win political support for a full merger of Airbus and BAE in 2012.

Saab AB, maker of the Gripen warplane, said it’s interested in joining a U.K.-led project to develop a cutting-edge combat aircraft that would be a mainstay of defense programs in two decades time. While Saab is also evaluating a rival Franco-German fighter plan, the Tempest program funded by Britain’s Ministry of Defence and including BAE Systems Plc and Rolls-Royce Holdings Plc has more appeal for the Swedish company, Chief Executive Officer Hakan Buskhe said Friday.
The U.S. Army is delaying approval of full-scale production of BAE Systems Plc’s new self-propelled howitzer, citing the need to improve quality before proceeding with additional contracts options valued at about $1.3 billion. The Army postponed triggering the most lucrative phase of the program for London-based BAE to “adequately address quality control issues,” service spokeswoman Ashley John said in an email Wednesday. Self-propelled 155mm howitzers are the centerpiece of the Army’s artillery.
Belgium is being offered a possible role in future European combat jet developments if it picks the Eurofighter Typhoon over the U.S.-built F-35, in a fierce contest to rearm the country's air force, a senior official with Britain's BAE Systems said. The sweetener comes as four nations behind the Eurofighter - Britain, Germany, Italy and Spain - step up lobbying to try to secure the order for 34 multi-role jets, amid reports that the Lockheed Martin F-35 is viewed as the leading contender.
