Additional information requested by CONSOB

Upon the request of Consob it is hereby specified that AgustaWestland did not make use of intermediaries for the supply of 12 AW101 helicopters to the Indian Ministry of Defence.

After stipulation of the above contract, the company drew up a post-sales service contract. As a result of said contract payments amounting to 6.05 million Euro were matured (from March 2010 - for approximately two years).

Furthermore, in order to improve its competitive position on the Indian market, which is of significant strategic importance for the company, AgustaWestland UK re-purchased, from a company specifically assigned to that task, 14 used helicopters that had been decommissioned following two serious accidents, with a total value of approximately 18 million Euro, sold in the past (1987) to an Indian government company.
