Safran reports strong progress for first-half 2013 results
Safran delivered strong progress in performance in first-half 2013. For first-half 2013, Safran’s revenue was €7,066m, compared to €6,413m in the same period a year ago, a 10.2% year-on-year increase (9.7% organic growth). First-half 2013 revenue increased by €653m on a reported basis, notably highlighting a good performance in aerospace (both organic and from acquisitions). On an organic basis, revenue increased by €621m as a result of record production rates in aerospace original equipment, as well as favourable aftermarket trends. Avionics and biometric identification activities also contributed to this performance. Organic revenue was determined by applying constant exchange rates and by including the revenue in 2013 of acquired activities only for the comparable periods to the period in 2012 for which they are included in 2012 reported revenue. Adjusted net income – group share grew by 59% year-over-year. It was €658m compared to €414m in first-half 2012 (restated).
