Safran SA Reports Audited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Year Ended Dec. 31, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for Fiscal 2015; Proposes to Amend Bylaws

Safran SA reported audited consolidated earnings results for the year ended Dec. 31, 2014. For the year, revenue was €14,363 million against €15,355 million for the same period of last year. Recurring operating income was €1,780 million against €2,089 million for the same period of last year. Profit from operations was €1,746 million against €1,982 million for the same period of last year. Profit for the period attributable to owners of the parent was €1,193 million against €1,248 million for the same period of last year. EPS was €2.87 against €3.00 for the same period of last year. Cash flow from operations was €1,946 million against €2,468 million for the same period of last year. Capex (tangible assets) was €489 million against €674 million for the same period of last year. Capex (intangible assets) was €212 million against €267 million for the same period of last year. Capitalisation of R&D was €720 million against €676 million for the same period of last year. For the period, the company’s net debt was €1.5 billion against €1.22 billion for the same period of last year. Profit attributable to owners was €1.248 billion. Adjusted recurring operating income was up 17.4%. The company posted a 4.6% rise in adjusted profit to €1.25 billion. If it were not for an exceptional gain the previous year the company would have scored a 17% profit increase. The 2013 net profit included a capital gain of €131 million after it sold its stake in Ingenico for €131 million. For 2014, non-adjusted net income was actually a loss of €126 million because of a charge of €1.9 billion to account for the euro's decline against the dollar in the past year. For the year 2015, Safran expects on a full-year basis: Adjusted revenue to increase by a percentage rate in the high single digits compared to 2014 (at an estimated average rate of USD 1.20 to the Euro); Adjusted recurring operating income to increase by a percentage in low double digits compared to 2014 recurring operating income (at a hedged rate of USD 1.25 to the Euro)); The hedging policy isolates adjusted recurring operating income from current EUR/USD variations except for the part generated in USD by activities located in the US, subject to the translation effect when converted into Euro); Free cash flow representing 35 to 45% of adjusted recurring operating income, an element of uncertainty being the amount of advance payments and the rhythm of payments by state-clients. The full-year 2015 outlook is based on the following underlying assumptions: Healthy increase in aerospace OE deliveries); Civil aftermarket growth of approximately 10%); Reduction of self-funded R&D of the order of Euro 100 - 150 million with a lower level of capitalisation compared to 2014 with less spending on Leap, A350, helicopters as they come closer to certification and entry into service); Sustained level of tangible capex, around Euro 700 million, as requested by production transitioning and ramp-up); Profitable growth for the Security business); and Continued benefits from the on-going Safran+ plan to improve direct costs and reduce overhead. The company also announced that it has proposed to the AGM, to approve modification of the bylaws (statuts) to set the length of new Directors' terms of office at 4 years (currently 5 years).

Hindustan Aeronautics Signs Technology Transfer Agreement with Sagem

Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. has signed a technology transfer agreement with Sagem, or Safran, concerning the manufacture and maintenance in India of Sagem's SIGMA 95 laser gyro navigation systems. Developed by Sagem for fixed and rotary-wing combat aircraft, the SIGMA 95 is an autonomous, hybrid laser gyro inertial/GPS-Glonass navigation system. It stands up to severe environments, and gives military aircraft a high degree of navigation precision and operational flexibility, thus supporting the success of even the most demanding missions, including in areas without GPS signals. According to the terms of this agreement, HAL will be able to produce SIGMA 95 units for the Indian air force, and also provide 'level 3' front line maintenance. Sagem has further consolidated its partnership with the Indian aerospace industry through this agreement. Several hundred combat aircraft deployed by the Indian Air Force and Navy are already fitted with Sagem's laser gyro navigation systems, including the Hawk, Jaguar, Tejas, MiG-29 and -27 and Su-30.
