Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) announced July 12 that current CEO Wes Bush would step aside as chief executive at the end of the year to be replaced by COO Kathy Warden. Under Bush’s leadership, NOC stock generated an annualized total return over eight-and-a-half years of 27.5%. Warden will be hard-pressed to deliver those kinds of numbers, but it’s important to point out that Bush’s tenure benefited greatly by taking over in January 2010, less than a year into the longest bull market in U.S. history.
Northrop Grumman Corp (NOC.N) is upbeat about the prospects for the sale of its high-altitude Triton MQ-4C unmanned surveillance system to Germany, but says the deal could take several years to complete. Brian Chappel, sector vice president and general manager of autonomous systems at Northrop, said the German government was working closely with the U.S. Navy to move forward after the State Department in April authorized the sale of up to four drones worth up to $2.5 billion. Northrop and Airbus Defence and Space, a unit of Airbus SE (AIR.PA), have teamed up on the program, to be called Pegagus in Germany, which will help Germany beef up its surveillance capabilities.
