BAE Systems (BAE) is a premier global defence, security and aerospace company delivering a full range of products and services for air, land and naval forces. Growth is under pressure as government fiscal discipline is tightened especially in the US and Europe. Efficiency programmes have been implemented to mitigate this development to protect margins. There are also growth opportunities in Saudi Arabia, Asia and Australia, where BEA has increased its focus to counter the loss of revenue elsewhere. On the product side, management has increased focus on “services” as contracts are longer term and provide stable income. Revenue visibility has decreased since 2009 as the order book has declined from 2.5 years of revenue to 1.7 which increases risk. Other risks would be unrest in Saudi Arabia - an important client - and further defence budget cuts. Financially BAE is strong and management continues to evaluate balance sheet inefficiency, this opens up for new share buy backs or increased dividends.
