BAE Systems continues to deliver a robust performance with strong trading in a number of areas

Our geographic diversity is providing resilience and in particular, we have made excellent progress in international markets achieving a non-US and UK order intake of £11.2bn.  This has resulted in an 8% increase in our order backlog to over £42bn. We have closed the year with a strong balance sheet and are well positioned for the future.
