  *EBIT* before one-off up 68 percent to € 3.0 billion 

  *Net Income rises 19 percent to € 1.2 billion

Amsterdam, 27  February 2013  -  EADS (stock  exchange symbol:  EAD)  achieved 
strong revenue and underlying profit growth for the full year 2012. Despite  a 
difficult macro-economic  environment,  EADS  saw continued  momentum  in  its 
commercial activities while defence revenues were broadly stable.

The order  intake^(5) totalled  €  102.5 billion  in  2012 while  EADS'  order 
book^(5) increased  in value  to  € 566.5  billion at  the  end of  the  year. 
Revenues amounted to € 56.5 billion. The EBIT* before one-off of around €  3.0 
billion reflected the strong operational performance at Airbus Commercial with
positive  contributions  from  Eurocopter  and  Astrium.  The  reported  EBIT* 
increased to € 2.2 billion. The
Net Cash position at the end of the year was € 12.3 billion.

"EADS achieved double-digit revenue  and profit growth  during 2012 while  the 
order backlog increased further," said EADS CEO Tom Enders. "A strong focus on
deliveries helped to significantly improve  cash generation during the  fourth 
quarter. Going-forward, the focus on  bottom line growth remains our  priority 
number one as a management team. And there's still some way to go to meet  our 
profitability targets. If  anything, the new  governance, the new  shareholder 
structure and the new Board as of end March will further energize the  company 
and its employees on their successful international growth path."

For the full year 2012, EADS' revenues increased by 15 percent to
€ 56.5 billion (FY 2011: €  49.1 billion). This strong performance was  driven 
mainly by  higher volume  and  more favourable  U.S.  dollar rates  at  Airbus 
Commercial as well as solid increases  at Eurocopter and Astrium. Revenues  at 
Eurocopter and  Astrium were  boosted by  the services  businesses,  including 
Vector Aerospace and Vizada. The companies acquired in 2011 contributed around
€ 1.5 billion to the 2012  revenues. Despite the overall defence  environment, 
defence revenues were flat compared to 2011.

Physical deliveries  remained strong  with a  record 588  aircraft for  Airbus 
Commercial, 29 aircraft for Airbus Military, 475 helicopters at Eurocopter and
the 53^rd consecutive successful Ariane 5 launch.

EBIT* before one-off (adjusted EBIT*) - an indicator capturing the  underlying 
business margin by excluding material non-recurring charges or profits  caused 
by movements in provisions related to programmes and restructurings or foreign
exchange impacts - increased sharply to € 3.0 billion (FY 2011: € 1.8 billion)
for EADS  and to  around €  1.8  billion for  Airbus (FY  2011: around  €  0.5 
billion).
The Group  performance was  driven  by the  strong underlying  performance  at 
Airbus  Commercial  while  Eurocopter  and  Astrium  also  delivered  absolute 
increases to the EBIT* before one-off.

EADS' reported EBIT* increased to €  2,186 million (FY 2011: € 1,696  million) 
with one-off charges totalling € 820 million booked during the year.

Of these total  one-off charges, €  522 million were  booked at Airbus  during 
2012, including the anticipated € 251 million on the A380 related to the  wing 
rib feet repair. The A350  XWB charge of € 124  million to reflect the  latest 
programme update is unchanged  since H1 2012. Good  progress is being made  on 
the
A350 XWB programme but it remains challenging and there is no room left in the
schedule. Also included  are the €  76 million charges  related to the  Hawker 
Beechcraft Programme closure booked  in the third quarter  and a € 71  million 
charge for the foreign exchange  impact on pre-delivery payments mismatch  and 
balance sheet  revaluation.  At  Eurocopter,  the  on-going  renegotiation  of 
certain contracts  for governmental  customers  resulted in  a €  100  million 
charge in  the fourth  quarter. At  Cassidian, a  total of  € 198  million  of 
charges were booked  in the final  quarter to reflect  restructuring costs  in 
line with the business transformation
(€ 98 million) and a charge  related to portfolio de-risking (€ 100  million), 
in particular for the secure systems and solutions business.

Net Income increased by 19 percent to € 1,228 million (FY 2011:
€ 1,033 million), or earnings per share of € 1.50 (earnings per share FY 2011:
€ 1.27). The Net Income* before  one-off^(4) increased to € 1,838 million  (FY 
2011:
€ 1,132 million). These  increases reflect the  improvement in the  underlying 
operating performance.

The finance result amounted to € -453 million (FY 2011: € -220 million).
The  2012  interest  result  of  €  -285  million  (FY  2011:  €  13  million) 
deteriorated partly due  to lower interest  income as a  function of the  high 
quality of investments.
In addition, the 2011 interest result included a positive one-time release of
€ 120  million  due  to the  termination  of  the A340  programme.  The  other 
financial result  amounts  to  €  -168 million  (FY  2011:  €  -233  million), 
reflecting an improved impact from  the foreign exchange revaluation  compared 
to 2011. This line also includes the unwinding of discounted provisions.

Based on Earnings  per Share  (EPS) of  € 1.50,  the EADS  Board of  Directors 
proposes payment on  5 June  2013 of a  dividend of  € 0.60 per  share to  the 
Annual General Meeting of shareholders (FY 2011: € 0.45 per share). The record
date should be 4 June 2013.

"This proposed dividend increase reflects  the progress the Group made  during 
2012," said Harald Wilhelm, CFO of  EADS. "We are focused on delivering  value 
to our shareholders."

Self-financed Research & Development (R&D) expenses remained broadly stable at
€ 3,142 million (FY 2011: € 3,152 million), due to IAS38 capitalisation of
€ 366  million on  the A350  XWB.  The focus  continues on  major  development 
programmes across the portfolio, in particular the A350 XWB and at Eurocopter.

Free Cash Flow before acquisitions of € 1,449 million exceeded expectations.
The traditional end of year seasonal payment pattern has been very strong.  It 
resulted in a strong positive swing  in fourth quarter working capital  thanks 
to the high  delivery performance  and stream  of advances  and receipts  from 
commercial and government customers. Gross cash flow from operations  reflects 
the strong underlying performance during the year.

The level of capital expenditure was € 3.3 billion, reflecting the ramp up  in 
development and series programmes  as the company  builds capacity for  future 
volume driven top and bottom line growth. It also includes the capitalised R&D
under IAS38. Despite the record level of commercial aircraft deliveries, EADS'
customer financing  gross exposure  was broadly  stable compared  to the  2011 
level.

EADS' Net Cash position increased to a solid € 12.3 billion (year-end 2011:
€ 11.7 billion) after a cash contribution  of € 856 million to pension  assets 
and the dividend payment of about € 370 million.

EADS' order intake^(5) amounted to € 102.5 billion (FY 2011: € 131.0  billion) 
and reflected continuing commercial momentum across the EADS portfolio. Airbus
Military,  Eurocopter,  Astrium  and   Cassidian  all  recorded   year-on-year 
increases in order intake while  Airbus Commercial exceeded its order  target, 
booking 914 gross orders for  2012. At the end  of December 2012, the  Group's 
order book^(5) had increased by 5 percent to € 566.5 billion (year-end 2011: €
541.0 billion). The defence order book  decreased to € 49.6 billion  (year-end 
2011: € 52.8 billion).

At the end of December 2012, EADS had a total of 140,405 employees
(year-end 2011: 133,115).

Outlook

As the basis for  its 2013 guidance,  EADS expects the  world economy and  air 
traffic to grow in line with  prevailing independent forecasts and assumes  no 
major disruption due to the current sovereign debt crisis.

In 2013,  gross commercial  aircraft  orders should  be  above the  number  of 
deliveries, in the range of 700 aircraft. Airbus deliveries should continue to
grow to between 600 and 610 commercial aircraft.

Due to lower A380 deliveries  and assuming an exchange rate  of € 1 = $  1.35, 
EADS revenues should see moderate growth in 2013.

By stretching the 2012 underlying margin improvement, in 2013 EADS targets  an 
EBIT* before one-off of € 3.5 billion  and an EPS* before one-off of around  € 
2.50 (FY 2012: € 2.24), prior to the proposed share buyback.

Excluding the known wing rib feet A380  impact in 2013 of around € 85  million 
based on  25  deliveries,  going  forward,  from  today's  point-of-view,  the 
"one-offs" should be limited  to potential charges on  the A350 XWB  programme 
and foreign  exchange  effects  linked  to  PDP  mismatch  and  balance  sheet 
revaluation.

The A350 XWB programme remains challenging. Any schedule change could lead  to 
an increasingly higher impact on provisions.

EADS aims to be Free Cash  Flow breakeven after customer financing and  before 
acquisitions in 2013.

EADS Divisions: Record Commercial Deliveries At Airbus; Order Intake Rises  At 
Airbus Military, Eurocopter, Astrium & Cassidian

Airbus' consolidated revenues increased by 17 percent to € 38,592 million
(FY 2011: € 33,103 million), reflecting strong commercial aircraft deliveries.
The Airbus consolidated EBIT* more than doubled to € 1,230 million (FY 2011:
€ 584 million).

Airbus Commercial revenues amounted to € 36,943 million (FY 2011:
€ 31,159 million),  driven by record  commercial deliveries of  588 (FY  2011: 
534), including 30 A380s. A total  of 585 deliveries were booked with  revenue 
recognition with the remaining three placed on operating lease. Revenues  also 
benefitted from favourable U.S. dollar rates.

Airbus Commercial's reported EBIT* amounted to € 1,125 million (FY 2011:
€ 543 million). The Airbus Commercial EBIT* before one-off of € 1,647 million
(FY 2011: € 485  million) benefited from  an improved operational  performance 
including favourable volume and pricing, net of escalation. It also  reflected 
the hedge rate  improvement. The  Division's self-financed  R&D expenses  fell 
slightly to €  2,442 million.  Despite stable deliveries,  revenues at  Airbus 
Military decreased by 15 percent to € 2,131 million (FY 2011: € 2,504 million)
driven by lower A400M  and tanker revenues.  Airbus Military's EBIT*  improved 
significantly to €  93 million (FY  2011: €  49 million) due  to a  favourable 
delivery mix with margin improvements from technically maturing programmes.

During 2012, Airbus Commercial registered 914 gross orders (FY 2011:
1,608 gross  orders). Net  orders totalled  833 (FY  2011: 1,419).  These  net 
orders comprised 739 A320 Family aircraft (ceo and neo), 85 A330/A350XWBs  and 
nine A380s. 

The A350 XWB development remains on track, based on the revised schedule, with
the final  assembly line  fully operational.  The structural  assembly of  the 
first  flyable  plane,  'MSN1',  was  completed  and  'electrical  power   on' 
accomplished. Another milestone was achieved  in February 2013 with the  award 
of the European  Aviation Safety  Agency's Engine Type  Certification for  the 
Trent XWB turbofan.

Regarding the A380, the wing rib issue has been resolved with repairs on-going
on deployed aircraft and design modifications embodied into the new production
standard. The avenue for breakeven in 2015 is set at 30 deliveries.

In response to  the continuing  strong demand for  Airbus' series  programmes, 
Airbus achieved the steady production ramp-up of the A320 and A330 Families to
42 and 9.5 per month respectively. At the end of the year, AirAsia became  the 
first operator of a fuel-saving 'Sharklet'-equipped A320. 

Airbus Military achieved 32 aircraft orders (FY 2011: 5 orders) and delivered
29 aircraft (FY 2011: 29 deliveries), comprising 20 light and medium  military 
transporters, five A330  MRTTs and  four P-3  conversions. With  300 hours  of 
Function and Reliability testing  completed, civil and military  certification 
for the A400M is expected  in Q1 2013 with the  first delivery due in Q2  2013 
and four deliveries  expected this  year. Full military  capabilities will  be 
achieved over  time and  challenges  remain until  then. Airbus  Military  was 
selected by India as the preferred bidder to supply A330 MRTT aircraft.

At the end  of 2012, Airbus'  consolidated order  book was valued  at €  523.4 
billion (year-end  2011:  €  495.5 billion).  The  Airbus  Commercial  backlog 
amounted to
€ 503.2 billion (year-end 2011: € 475.5 billion), which comprises 4,682  units 
representing an industry record (year-end 2011: 4,437 aircraft). At the end of
the year, Airbus Military's order book stood at € 21.1 billion (year-end 2011:
€ 21.3 billion).

Revenues at Eurocopter increased 16 percent to a record € 6,264 million
(FY 2011:  € 5,415  million),  driven mainly  by  higher repair  and  overhaul 
support activities  and  the  full  year inclusion  of  the  Vector  Aerospace 
business consolidation. Higher NH90 and  Super Puma revenues also  contributed 
to the  overall increase.  Total deliveries  declined to  475 helicopters  (FY 
2011:
503 helicopters), in particular for the EC135 and Ecureuil models.

The Division's EBIT* increased by 20 percent to € 311 million (FY 2011:
€ 259 million). The 2012 EBIT* includes the € 100 million charge booked in the
fourth quarter to reflect the latest status of the on-going renegotiations for
certain governmental  programmes. EBIT*  before  one-off increased  around  10 
percent year-on-year,  reflecting the  revenue  mix and  the increase  in  R&D 
expenses as expected.

Eurocopter's order intake  for 2012  rose 15 percent  to €  5,392 million  (FY 
2011:
€ 4,679  million)  with  the number  of  net  bookings rising  for  the  third 
consecutive year to 469  (FY 2011: 457).  Orders of the  Ecureuil/Fennec/EC130 
and EC135/ EC145 families were particularly strong.

Eurocopter continues to  work in  close collaboration  with the  investigating 
authorities on further identifying and explaining the root cause of the  Super 
Puma incidents.  The root  cause of  the recent  Ecureuil incidents  has  been 
identified and a  programme is in  place to implement  a retrofit approved  by 
EASA.

At the end of 2012, Eurocopter's order book was worth € 12.9 billion (year-end
2011: €  13.8  billion) comprising  1,070  helicopters (year-end  2011:  1,076 
helicopters).

Astrium revenues  in 2012  increased to  €  5,817 million  (FY 2011:  €  4,964 
million) driven mainly by growth in services including the Vizada  integration 
and strong programme execution. EBIT* increased by 17 percent to € 312 million
(FY 2011:
€ 267 million).  Astrium is  seeing efficiency and  productivity gains  coming 
through the operational performance  as a result  of the AGILE  transformation 
programme. However, higher investment in R&D and globalisation efforts as well
as some Vizada integration costs weighed on the operating margin in 2012.

The Division achieved an order intake of € 3.8 billion in 2012 (FY 2011:
€ 3.5 billion), despite continued tough competition in the marketplace.

Seven Ariane  5 launches  were conducted  during 2012,  taking the  number  of 
successful consecutive  launches to  53.  Nine Astrium-built  satellites  were 
delivered during the  year. Fourth  quarter satellite  launches included  U.K. 
military satellite  Skynet 5D  and earth  observation satellite  Pléiades  1B, 
further expanding the fleet operated by Astrium Services.

In November, the European Space Agency's Ministerial Council broadly confirmed
European space budgets related to key programmes of Astrium. This resulted  in 
initial contracts worth € 108 million  received in January 2013 to secure  the 
development of Ariane 6 and Ariane 5 ME.

At the end of 2012, Astrium's order book amounted to € 12.7 billion
(year-end 2011: € 14.7 billion).

Cassidian revenues in 2012 were broadly stable as expected at € 5,740  million 
(FY 2011: € 5,803 million). EBIT* in 2012 fell to € 142 million (FY 2011:
€ 331 million) reflecting the € 198  million of one-off charges booked in  the 
fourth quarter. On an underlying basis, the EBIT* before one-off was lower  as 
expected due to investments in globalisation and transformation despite  lower 
R&D expenses.

Cassidian's order intake rose significantly to € 5.0 billion in 2012 (FY 2011:
€ 4.2 billion)  despite the  challenging market environment.  This was  driven 
mainly by  the Eurofighter  and  missile export  business. In  December,  Oman 
signed a contract for the purchase of 12 Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft which is
yet to be included in the order book.

At the end of December 2012, the order book of Cassidian had risen slightly to
€ 15.6 billion (year-end 2011: € 15.5 billion).

Headquarters and Other Businesses (not belonging to any Division)

Revenues of Other Businesses increased 22 percent to € 1,524 million
(FY 2011: € 1,252 million), driven  by volume increases at EADS North  America 
and higher ATR deliveries. The EBIT* of Other Businesses decreased to
€ 49 million (FY 2011: € 59 million) with the EBIT* before one off stable with
the 2011 level due to a less favourable revenue mix.

After an exceptional 2011, ATR in 2012 secured 61 firm orders (FY 2011:
119 orders) with its  order backlog reaching  221 aircraft at  the end of  the 
year, equivalent to nearly  three years of production.  ATR achieved a  record 
annual delivery level of 64 aircraft, reflecting a year-on-year increase of 19
percent
(FY 2011: 54 aircraft).

In late 2012,  the U.S.  Army awarded  EADS North  America a  $ 181.8  million 
contract  option  to  deliver  34  additional  UH-72A  Lakota  light   utility 
helicopters, raising the total  number of orders to  312. The total number  of 
Lakota deliveries to the U.S. Armed Forces reached 250 in December 2012.

At the end of December 2012, the order book of Other Businesses had  decreased 
slightly to € 2.9 billion (year-end 2011: € 3.0 billion).

*     EADS uses  EBIT pre-goodwill  impairment and exceptionals  as a  key 
indicator of its economic performance. The term "exceptionals" refers to  such 
items as depreciation expenses of fair value adjustments relating to the  EADS 
merger, the  Airbus  Combination  and  the  formation  of  MBDA,  as  well  as 
impairment charges thereon.

EADS is a global leader in  aerospace, defence and related services. In  2012, 
the Group - comprising Airbus,  Astrium, Cassidian and Eurocopter -  generated 
revenues of € 56.5 billion and employed a workforce of over 140,000.

Q4 2012 revenues increased  17 percent, driven mainly  by the strong  delivery 
performance at Airbus and Astrium and higher military revenues at Eurocopter.

Q4 2012 EBIT* decreased  by 30 percent  compared to one  year ago. The  better 
operational performance at Airbus was more  than offset by the charges  booked 
by Eurocopter and Cassidian in the fourth quarter.

Footnotes:

1)      Earnings before  interest, taxes,  depreciation, amortisation  and 
exceptionals.

2)     Earnings  before interest and  taxes, pre  goodwill impairment  and 
exceptionals.

3)     EADS continues  to use the  term Net Income.  It is identical  with 
Profit for the period attributable to  equity owners of the parent as  defined 
by IFRS Rules.

4)    Net  Income before one-off is the  Net Income stripped of the  EBIT* 
one-offs. It excludes other financial result (except the unwinding of discount
on provisions) and all tax effects on the mentioned items. Net Income*  before 
one-off is the Net Income before one-off pre-goodwill and exceptionals net  of 
tax. Accordingly,  EPS* before  one-off is  EPS based  on Net  Income*  before 
one-off.

5)     Contributions  from commercial  aircraft activities  to EADS  Order 
Intake and Order Book based on list prices.

6)     The reportable Segments Airbus Commercial and Airbus Military  form 
the Airbus Division. Eliminations are treated at the Division level.

7)  To be proposed to the Annual General Meeting.
