Chairman and CEO of Finmeccanica, Giuseppe Orsi, said:

“2011 was an extraordinarily difficult year during which we carried out a comprehensive but necessary review of the Group's industrial strategy and business and technological approach. Inevitably the balance sheet we are presenting today reflects this and represents the first important step to setting Finmeccanica on a new trajectory. 2012 will be characterised by an improvement in our key balance sheet indicators and will be a year of calibrated transition towards a new Finmeccanica.”
