I don't think it is about bribery. That is well known and must have been discounted a long-time ago. Storm in a tea-cup driven by PC utopian numpties. It has everything to do with that Ultra statement IMO.

The relentless drop in the share price is apparently mainly due to allegations of bribery relating to previous sales of Tornados and Typhoons to the Saudis.A mooted further contract for the sale of more Typhoons to the Saudis is also in doubt.

https://www.investegate.co.uk/ultra-electronics--ule-/rns/trading-statement/201711130700042422W/ From Ultra's statement:- The majority of the Group's markets have been satisfactory, however the UK market has been difficult and has become increasingly so in the second half. There are mounting pressures in the funding of UK defence programmes and this has resulted in the UK MoD pausing, cancelling or delaying numerous programmes. Within the last few weeks a number of our UK orders budgeted for 2017 have been affected. Consequently, the Group now expects full year total revenue to be around £770m and organic revenue to show a decline of about 4%

Looks like I might get my 575 buy order . Funny old market; seems like illogical weakness to me.

If Vets for Britain are anything to go by, then this is a precursor to even more cuts (so as, coincidentally, to make it imperative we form part of the EU army going forward) The savings - Spend on Foreign Aid, housing fakeugees and all manner of point and treasonous projects that leave our country poorly defended and vulnerable.

A man who has never served as the new Defence Sec will presumably be viewed as a politician rather than a defender. Perhaps a statement of intent about further cuts? Or maybe May had little choice!

Wonder what this share price weakness is about ; another few pence will buy some back for me. 575 will do. Maybe not today but...

Ribble I can confidently tell you that there is no Navel side to BAE , at least I hope not. There is a Naval side however...

I think this is a smart BAE response to John Parker's report which specifically excludes building the Type 31s at Govan. This way the project still has major BAE input both in design capability and also systems manufacture and supply at a time when Barrow will be busy with astute and Successor, and Portsmouth no longer involved in shipbuilding. As said, co-operation between BAE (Vickers) and CL is nothing new - Polaris SSBN and the Upholders. It would also be fantastic to see CL building real ships again.

Minerve, I dont have that much background in the Navel side of the business (I worked for many years in the Air side). But, my tuppence is. BAE only have Barrow, Portsmouth, Clyde as manufacturing with collaberation with other shipbuilders in other shipyards (Mersey, Tyne etc). But I do recall, a few years ago of an initiative, put forward by the government of the time to share/partner all shipbuilding in the UK. So although BAE only have a few shipyards, access to capabilities could be on a shared bassis (depending on work type, E.G QE Carriers manufactured in module form)

BAE and Cammell Laird have often worked/teamed together and even though CL are prime they are still using the Leander design. Cant see why it would hit the share price so hard

Could it be related to BAE not being the prime bidder for the 31e Frigates???

Is the Typhoon missing out to its competitors and destined to remain the Junior partner in F35 production? This is the gist of an article at the weekend fuelled by the job cuts. https://www.economist.com/news/britain/21730208-defence-giant-poised-take-advantage-global-rise-military-spending-bae
