This is a challenging environment but we continue to take the necessary actions to manage the business for the benefit of both our customers and our shareholders. We have received £4.8bn of orders outside the UK and US in the first six months, a continued sign of the momentum in international activity

We also see increasing cyber opportunities, particularly in the civil area. The Group has a well balanced portfolio with a 50/50 split between services and products and, we expect our well established, broad, geographic reach and strong product and services positions will provide a good platform for future growth.”
