CAE: “The civil aerospace sector remains a challenge, but our healthy financial position and our diversification among products and services, military and civil markets and our presence on all continents around the world is helping to mitigate its effects. We are continuing to adjust our business in terms of structure and people to reduce costs and to be able to generate cash and profits through the aerospace downturn. We expect continued strong growth in military and the eventual recovery in our civil segments will build on this solid base,” Marc Parent, President and CEO. Source: CAE, 11-Nov-2009.
