In the wake of the Group's commercial dynamic, Auvergne Aéro, whose acquisition was finalised in November 2016, reported revenue of €9.8 million in this first quarter of the current financial year.
Market share gains for the A350 and the LEAP engine contributed significantly to the strong performance of the Aerostructures business, which posted growth of 27.8% and the assembly on site business, up 26.4% over the period.
A positive outlook
Investment in this early part of the financial year, estimated at around €65 million for the current financial year and less than €50 million over the next financial year, is in accordance with its strategy to generate positive and recurring free cash-flow from March 2019.
FIGEAC AÉRO reaffirms its objectives to March 2020: the revenue target of at least €650 million is now more than 90% secured (on the basis of aircraft manufacturers' latest production rates published), i.e. an average annual growth rate of at least 26% over three years.
