EADS: “As the basis for its 2013 guidance, EADS expects the world economy and air traffic to grow in line with prevailing independent forecasts and assumes no major disruption due to the current sovereign debt crisis. Due to lower A380 deliveries and assuming an exchange rate of EUR1 = USD1.35, EADS revenues should see moderate growth in 2013.” Source: Company Statement, 14-May-2013.
