Safran Reports Group Earnings Results for the First Half Ended June 30, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Full Year 2015

Safran reported group earnings results for the first half ended June 30, 2015. Sales were up 16.6% or 5% on an organic basis. Operating profit was up 22.5%, of 17.8% on an organic basis. Growing revenue, mostly driven by Aerospace services and Security. Operating margin increased mainly driven by production, and the net profit is up 89% including the sale of Ingenico Group share. Group net profit, excluding the capital gain on Ingenico, is up 20.9% in line with adjusted EBIT. The company reported EUR 1.1 billion net profit of the first half on adjusted terms or EUR 2.80 per share compared to the EUR 616 million or EUR 1.48 per share for the same period year ago. The 23% increase in EBIT translates in a 21% decrease in net profit. The gain from placement of Ingenico sales leads to a EUR 2.8 per share net profit, EUR 1.8 per share coming from operations and EUR 1 per share coming from Ingenico. The 16.6% increase in revenues, EUR 55 million contribution of 2014 acquisitions, mainly Eaton and Hydrep; EUR 782 million contribution from FX, 85% of that coming from the euro/dollar variation, so it leaves EUR 358 million of 5% organic growth. It was 2.4% at the end of first quarter. It benefited from favorable comps as first half experienced a slow growth in aftermarket last year, and this was very strong quarter and first half 2015. Positive currency coming from improved hedged rate and translation of U.S. subsidiaries profit in profit, strong EUR 170 million improvement, excluding scope and currency. Cash from operating activities was almost EUR 1.5 billion. It's 34% more than that last year. Total CapEx, both tangible and intangible, increased due to entry tickets in major program and to the preparation of the launch of new engines. So positive cash and Ingenico proceeds are fully financed dividends and the reevaluation of U.S. denominated debt that leads to net debt unchanged compared with the end of 2014 at EUR 1.5 billion. Profit from operations was EUR 1.167 billion compared to the EUR 946 million for the same period year ago. Recurring operating income was EUR 1.171 billion compared to the EUR 956 million for the same period year ago. Cash flow from operations were EUR 2.468 million compared to the EUR 1.115 million for the same period year ago. Capex (tangible assets) was EUR 674 million compared to the EUR 299 million for the same period year ago. Capex (intangible assets) was EUR 267 million compared to the EUR 107 million for the same period year ago. Net debt position was EUR 1,499 million as of June 30, 2015. The company provided earnings guidance for the full year 2015. The company maintained a system level of tangible net CapEx, around EUR 700 million. The adjusted revenue is still to increase by a percentage in the high single digits at an estimated average rate of USD 1.20 for the euro. If the average spot rate of USD 1.12 to the euro remains towards the full year of 2016, the revenue would consequently grow by a percentage in the low double digits. The adjusted recurring operating income now is expected to increase by a percentage in the mid-teens. Previously, the company expected low double digits at the hedge rate of USD 1.25 for the euro. Free cash flow is expected to represent 35% to 45% of the adjusted recurring operating income.

Sagem Collaborates with Défense Conseil International S.A. on Airborne Surveillance Systems

Sagem and Defense Conseil International, or DCI, have signed a collaboration agreement on airborne surveillance systems, based on light aircraft and drones, for both France and international markets. The manned airborne surveillance services offered by DCI will call on the Diamond DA 42 light twin-engine\ aircraft, equipped with Sagem's Euroflir 350 or 410 optronic pod. According to the terms of the agreement, DCI will contribute its expertise in services, training and customer assistance. Sagem will focus on the surveillance and intelligence drone market, based on its Patroller drone, with the operational support of DCI for contract proposals entailing system operation or maintenance for government forces or the private sector. The DA 42 is a twin-engine, four-seat aircraft developed and produced by the Austrian company Diamond Aviation. An innovative, high-speed plane, the DA 42 offers a cruise speed exceeding 300 km/h (162 kts), with endurance of 6 to 10 hours. DCI has outfitted this plane with an optronic payload, maritime surveillance radar, data transmission system and data post-processing system. Developed by Sagem, the Patroller is a 1-ton class drone. It features a modular design, enabling it to carry a multi-sensor payload up to 250 kg, in the fuselage or in pods (optronics, radar and electronic warfare), with endurance exceeding 20 hours and a ceiling of 20,000 ft. The Patroller's design calls on nine years of operational experience with Sagem's Sperwer drone system in Afghanistan. During tests in October and November 2014, the Patroller showed its ability to operate in civil airspace, under conditions of total air traffic safety, as part of the European program Odrea. It supports the day/night, long-range observation and location of targets. Euroflir systems have largely proven their effectiveness in operations by helicopters deployed by the French navy, army and special forces.
