Share this content Bookmark TOULOUSE, France: Airbus plunged to a 1.362 billion euro (US$1.48 billion) net loss in 2019, weighed down by a multinational bribery settlement, but the European aerospace group pledged to increase operating profit and deliver 880 commercial jets this year. Full-year adjusted operating income, which excludes the criminal settlement and other one-offs, rose 19per cent to 6.946 billion euros and should top 7.5 billion euros in 2020, Airbus said. Revenue increased 11per cent to 70.478 billion euros.

The group will focus on operational and cost improvements in 2020 as well as"reinforcing our company culture", he added. The net loss reflected a 1.212 billion euro charge on the A400M military transporter program as well as a provision for last month's US$4 billion settlement with British, French and U.S. prosecutors over past corrupt practices. Airbus played down the potential damage from the virus outbreak currently rattling airlines and the broader global economy, endorsing traffic growth forecasts that"assume no major disruptions, including from the coronavirus."

The long-delayed A400M program delivered 14 planes in 2019, on schedule, but is now hampered by"increasingly challenging" obstacles including repeated extensions to a German export ban on Saudi Arabia, Airbus said. For the fourth quarter, adjusted operating income fell 9 per cent to 2.813 billion euros, ahead of the 2.736 billion expected by analysts, according to an Airbus consensus poll. Quarterly revenue rose 4 per cent to 24.31 billion euros. (Reporting by Laurence Frost; Editing by Muralikumar Anantharaman and Edwina Gibbs) Source: Reuters/nh Read more: CNA
