Europe's Airbus reported on Thursday a steeper than expected 52 percent drop in first-quarter profit, weighed by weaker prices as it changes to new models and higher production costs, but reaffirmed targets for higher profits for the year. The world's second-largest planemaker after Boeing said adjusted operating profit fell to 240 million euros ($261.7 million), while revenues rose 7 percent to 12.988 billion euros. Analysts were on average expecting adjusted operating income of 344 million euros, down 31 percent, and 5.5 percent higher revenues of 12.857 billion, according to a Reuters poll. Airbus said it was still worried about problems with temperamental engines for its new A320neo passenger plane from Pratt & Whitney, and commercial exposure on the troubled A400M military aircraft program. It expects deliveries of the A320neo once again to fall predominantly in the latter part of the year, but has said it hopes to avoid the last-minute rush seen in December last year. The engine issues "need to be resolved," Airbus said in a statement. The Airbus planemaking business saw 31 percent lower profit despite a 13 percent rise in revenues. The Toulouse-based firm said this reflected a different mix of aircraft, with more of the new A350s delivered in the first quarter, "transition pricing" and higher production ramp-up costs. New aircraft tend to be sold at heavier discounts to spur further orders. The Airbus Helicopters unit slipped into loss as the world's largest commercial helicopter maker continues to suffer from the grounding of aircraft in UK and Norway, following a crash that killed North Sea oil workers. For 2017, Airbus expects to deliver over 720 aircraft and to report mid-single-digit percentage growth in operating income. Airbus' results came a day after Boeing reported a 19 percent rise in first-quarter profit, with its U.S rival also lifting its full-year forecast. More»

Egypt’s long-awaited new investment law is expected to be issued in May, the country’s Prime Minister Sherif Ismail announced at a youth conference Wednesday. The new law will focus on the diversification of incentives and guarantees for investors. Egypt is trying to recover economically after a popular uprising in 2011 drove away tourists and foreign investors, key sources of hard currency. The government first approved an investment law in March 2015 aimed at bolstering investor confidence, eliminating bureaucracy, easing the procedures to obtain licences for projects and attracting foreign investment.

Global cross-border mergers and acquisitions activity continued to dip as political turbulence and economic uncertainty become the new normal for dealmakers, while deal flow in the Middle East remained stable, according to Baker McKenzie's Cross-Border M&A Index. The global Index, which tracks quarterly deal activity using a baseline score of 100, decreased to 218 for Q1 2017, down 17% from the prior quarter and 9% from Q1 2016. In Q1 2017, cross-border M&A made up 49% of all deal value and 35% of all deal volume. North America was a safe haven for deals in Q1 2017, and the US accounted for 94% of inbound deal value in the region. The fallout from Brexit and a series of contentious election campaigns hit EU inbound M&A activity in Q1 2017, as EU targets accounted for only 17% of cross regional deal value, compared to an average of 35% since 2009. The consumer sector led the way for deal value in Q1 2017 with 142 deals valued at US$113.3 billion, while the technology sector led deal volume with 182 deals valued at US$14.9 billion. Energy and utilities, and pharma were the second and third highest sectors in terms of value, contributing US$51.4 billion and US$49.1 billion respectively. More»

Egypt has held a long-awaited international tender for the refurbishment of the country’s largest public companies, Egyptian Iron and Steel Company (HADISOLB), the company announced Monday. Submission of bids will be until July 18th, 2017, HADISOLB added. HADISOLB refurbishment plan includes a financial reform by increasing its capital through loans or current shareholders, and technical restructuring to outline the company’s upgrading production needs. Egyptian Minister of Public Sector Affairs Ashraf El-Sharkawy said earlier that the government had completed the first phase of HADISOLB’s financial restructuring process by increasing its capital on April 11th. “2017 will be the year of restructuring the country’s iron and steel as well as textile and spinning sectors.” El-Sharkawy added. HADISOLB, which was founded in the 1950s, for decades was considered the crown jewel of Egyptian heavy industry. In the 1990s, however, the industry was opened to the private sector which gradually built up a controlling share of the market, and whose firms proved more efficient than HADISOLB. Moreover, years of mismanagement crippled the company's performance and left behind huge financial problems. More»
