Safran Group: “Safran recorded a solid performance during the third-quarter 2010, highlighting strong double-digit growth in three out of its four main businesses. We saw encouraging signs in CFM56 aftermarket with revenue in CFM56 spares up 16% sequentially, giving us confidence that the low point might be behind us. Aircraft Equipment delivered a good performance, notably thanks to the landing systems on the B787 programme. Based on the performance for the first nine months of the year and current positive trends in our markets, we confirm our full-year guidance for 2010 and our renewed confidence in our outlook for 2011 and beyond,” Jean-Paul Herteman, CEO.
