Rome  28 January 2021 18:00 - Inside Information

  • Successful execution through Q4 2020, in line with expectations
  • Continued robust response to COVID-19
  • Guidance confirmed with neutral, slightly positive, FOCF


Leonardo's Board of Directors completed an initial review of FY 2020 expected performance. The review showed that the Group has performed well in the fourth quarter, delivering on its expectations.

The Group ended 2020 strongly, executing well as a result of a solid performance in the military/governmental business across divisions, while the civil business remained soft.
The business continues to respond robustly and manage through the challenges of COVID-19, with cost control measures bearing fruits and industrial efficiency back to normal, helping to offset both JVs and civil performance.

As a result, it is expected that the Group will deliver full year Orders, Revenues, and EBITA in line with 2020 Guidance, and to achieve a neutral, slightly positive, FOCF, thanks to the actions taken to bring in significant cash-ins on all programmes during the fourth quarter.

The Group will provide full details of FY 2020 performance at the Full Year Results on 9 March 2021. Guidance for FY 2021, still affected by COVID-19 effects, will also be provided with the full year results.
