Bombardier: “While both markets are affected by the recession, we believe that the market fundamentals are strong in the long-term for new business and commercial aircraft. We reaffirm our guidance to deliver approximately 15% and 20% fewer business and commercial aircraft respectively in fiscal year 2011 compared to fiscal year 2010. Our overall BA EBIT margin for fiscal year 2011 is expected to be at a similar level as fiscal year 2010,” Company statement. Source: Bombardier, 02-Dec-2010.
