"Lithium-based systems have demonstrated excellent performance in safety critical medical applications and essential telecommunications services but its profile in aerospace is growing. Securaplane (Meggitt) is pioneering lithium battery technology on commercial aircraft, developing the charger for the lithium main ship batteries on the Boeing 787 (Dreamliner) through Thales and, direct to Boeing, the aircraft's rechargeable batteries for the wireless emergency lighting system." From their website. A statement would be nice - if poss. Probably a good move, Broadwood.

One of my favourite companies but just sold out until the Dreamliner troubles get sorted. Probably the wrong thing to do - but can't see immediate upside and may possibly get in again cheaper. Good luck to all holders.

there is to much pressure on highly skilled engineering/aerospace workers to meet deadlines,both from the city and PE cracking the whip threats of redundancies,excessive hours step back and give them time to get it right in the first place

football Have you started running and crying to ADVFN yet about any other posters here that disagree with you? You are an embarrassment and a liar who has been caught out lying and trying to get other posters removed who have caught on to you. Beware MGGT football is a nasty piece of work who runs crying when his lies are exposed.

CATEGORY: NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS SECTOR: AEROSPACE & DEFENCE Meggitt flying in third quarter Fri 02 Nov 2012 MGGT - Meggitt LONDON (SHARECAST) - Third quarter organic revenues at Meggitt, the company specialising in high performance components and sub-systems for the aerospace, defence and energy markets, were in line with an exceptionally strong performance from last year. Based on current projections, and notwithstanding the uncertainty in military end markets, the group expects to see percentage revenue growth in the mid-single digits in 2013. The group has seen strong growth in its energy business more than offset continued softness in civil aerospace after-market revenues over the last year. However, Meggitt is now starting to see the anticipated effects of the phased withdrawal of troops from Iraq and Afghanistan have an effect on its military revenues. Civil aerospace end market indicators remain very encouraging, with large jet original equipment deliveries at record levels, and aircraft utilisation continuing to increase underpinned by strong load factors across the industry, Meggitt's interim management statement said. Based on these indicators, the company is expecting to see a resumption of after-market growth during 2013. As for the acquisition of PacSci in April 2011, savings are occurring at a faster rate than initially anticipated and Meggitt remains very confident in delivering the increased cost synergy run rate of $22.5m by the end of 2014. "We continue to expect revenue growth in 2012 to be circa 10% including the full year effect of PacSci and the disposal of the environmental control systems business [in North America] ... with operating margins broadly in line with last year despite the ongoing aftermarket softness and the currency headwind as a result of the appreciation of the Swiss Franc," the company said. The financial position of the group remains strong, driven by a good operating cash flow performance in the first half which has accelerated during the third quarter.

Meggitt reiterates guidance, wins two contracts Tue 07 Aug 2012 LONDON (SHARECAST) - Aerospace components engineer Meggitt said it entered the second half of the year with good momentum and an improved order book, although the civil aerospace after-market is a bit soft. Revenue in the first half of 2012 was up 19% at £776.0m from £649.8m in the corresponding period of 2011, while the order book finished the period up 8% year-on-year. The top line growth is flattered by a full six-month contribution this time round from Pacific Scientific (PacSci), which it acquired for $685m in April 2011. On a "pro-forma" basis (assuming PacSci had been acquired on January 1st 2011) group revenue increased by 8%, with growth in all major markets. Civil revenues were a little softer than anticipated but this was compensated by stronger military and energy revenues; as well as serving the civil and military aerospace markets, Meggitt also has customers in the energy sector. Underlying profit before tax climbed 15% to £168.5m from £146.2m the year before, while statutory profit before tax improved to £127.2m from £112.2m the year before. Underlying earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) was up 13% to £221.3m from last year's £196.7m, while underlying earnings per share rose to 16.4p from 14.4p the year before. Underlying profit and EPS figures exclude the amortisation of acquired intangibles, exceptional operating items and the marking to market of financial instruments. Net debt at the end of the reporting period had improved to £792.9m from £847.8m a year earlier, or 1.6 times EBITDA (end-June 2011: 1.9 x EBITDA). The group's cash flow is significantly weighted to the second half of the calendar year. The group has £450m of undrawn headroom, net of cash, against committed bank facilities. PacSci has continued to trade in line with expectations. Incremental cost synergies of $4.6m were achieved in the first half, in line with the increased target run rate of $22.5m by the end of 2014, Meggitt said. The group continues to expect organic revenue growth of 6-7% over the medium term in line with its five-year guidance, with double-digit revenue growth in 2012 including the full-year impact of PacSci. Organic growth excludes foreign exchange movements and any mergers or acquisitions. Terry Twigger, Chief Executive of Meggitt, commented: "The business delivered good top line growth in the first half, with particularly strong performances in the military and energy end markets." Revenue from the civil aerospace business was up 4% to £349.7m, while the military business saw revenue jump 10% to £309.9m. The Energy business's revenues surged 30% to £68.6m. "The outlook for our civil markets remains encouraging, despite the slower than expected start to the year in the after-market," Meggitt's statement said. In the military market, uncertainties around US Department of Defense spending, in particular around the possibility of sequestration, are likely to affect new programme awards. "However, assuming sequestration does not occur, we continue to expect 2% compound annual revenue growth in line with our five year guidance underpinned by strong positions on work-horse platforms and continued retro-fit programme success." The interim dividend has been increased by one-eighth to 3.6p from 3.2p. In announcements separate to the release of its interim results, the group revealed two recent contract wins. The first is a heat exchanger contract worth more than $100m from Brazilian energy firm Petrobras. The second is a $129m contract with helicopter firm Sikorsky Aircraft to supply rotorcraft components. JH
