EADS Moots Name Change To Airbus: Reports

European Aeronautic Defence and Space Co. or EADS NV (EADSF.PK,EADSY.PK) is considering to change its name to that of its better-known unit Airbus, reports said Wednesday. A decision may be taken before the presentation of the company's earnings on July 31.

EADS' executive committee is holding a meeting today. The company's board is scheduled to meet next week.

Airbus, maker of commercial and military aircraft, is better known internationally than its parent company. The unit generated about two-thirds of EADS' earnings and revenue in 2012.

EADS got its current name when French, German and Spanish companies brought together their aerospace assets in 2000.

Tom Enders, chief executive officer of EADS, is said to have established a working group to study the legal and technical aspects of the name change.

The stock rose 0.3 percent in Paris on Wednesday to close at 41.70 euros.
