Operating profit did not see the same growth due to the impact of certain operational difficulties and increased investment in R&D.

DCNS - FREMM In the absence of any major new contracts, the Group booked orders worth 578 million in the first half of 2013, compared with 813 million in H1 2012. At end June, the orderbook was worth 13.23 billion, compared with 14.2 billion a year earlier. This represents four years output.

First-half revenue rose to 1.63 billion, compared with 1.4 billion a year earlier, thanks to good progress on industrial programmes for the French Navy (FREMM frigates, Barracuda submarines and through-life support for front-line ships) and others for international client navies (notably Brazil, India and Russia).

Operating profit before impact of PPA (purchase price allocation) for the first half of 2013 amounted to 95 million, or 5.8% of revenue, compared with 98 million, or 7% of revenue, for the same period last year. The Group encountered operational difficulties in certain industrial programmes, primarily in the civil nuclear engineering sector. It also stepped up R&D investment relative to H1 2012 in order to maintain its technological leadership in key markets. An action plan has been launched to increase operating profitability.

The full-time equivalent employee headcount amounted to 13,511 as of end June 2013, compared with 12,987 twelve months earlier.

DCNS - Results

It should be noted that half-year results in terms of revenue (which is booked as industrial milestones are achieved pursuant to the terms of the different contracts) and order intake (which depend on important contracts) cannot be extrapolated to full-year trends.
