Dassault Aviation 2011 Net Profit Incl. THALES Rises - Quick Facts

3/22/2012 4:31 AM ET

Dassault Aviation (DUAVF.PK) reported 2011 net income, including THALES, of 407 million euros, up 10% from last year.

Excluding THALES, net income was 282 million euros, lower than 395 million euros a year ago.

Consolidated net sales declined to 3.31 billion euros from 4.19 billion euros in the prior year.

Charles EDELSTENNE, Chairman and CEO of the Group, stated,

" 2011 is marked, as expected, by a net sales significant decrease. This decrease results from a noticeably lower number of business jets deliveries compared to 2010, our Falcon historical delivery record.

However, 2011 net income is improving, thanks to Thales contribution. Thales 2011 good results are in line with their forecast..."

Going forward, DASSAULT AVIATION Group expects to deliver around 65 FALCON and 11 RAFALE in 2012. Net sales should consequently remain even.
