EADS: “EADS expects 2011 EBIT before one-off to remain stable compared to the 2010 level, at around EUR1.3 billion. Increasing volume and price improvement at Airbus Commercial are roughly compensated by the deterioration of hedge rates, increasing R&D and less favourable mix of activities at Cassidian,” Company statement.
