12:11 EDTEADSYEADS says company, core holders agree on overhaul of governance, ownership
The EADS Board of Directors and the company’s core shareholders have agreed on a far-reaching change of the company’s shareholding structure and governance. This agreement aims at normalizing and simplifying the governance of EADS while securing a shareholding structure that allows France, Germany and Spain to protect their legitimate strategic interests. Subject to the vote of the Extraordinary General Meeting of the shareholders of EADS, the present shareholder pact, called “Participation Agreement”, in place since the company’s foundation in 2000, will be terminated and replaced by a new, limited arrangement between the French, German and Spanish Governments. France, Germany and Spain have agreed on a capped government shareholding, with Germany and France intending to ultimately hold up to 12% each and Spain circa 4%. The three states will have reciprocal pre-emption rights. The amended Articles of Association of EADS will contain an ownership and voting restriction from crossing the 15% threshold by shareholder individually or collectively. Certain specific French and German national security interests will be protected through the creation of “national defense companies” holding sensitive military assets, and including the rights of France and Germany to consent to three outside directors to the board of their respective “national defence companies”. Under the new governance scheme, no veto right will be given to any group of Directors in the Board or to any shareholder at the Shareholders’ Meeting.

06:22 EDTEADSYAirbus CEO promises "management consequences" after A400M delays, FT says
Airbus CEO Tom Enders promised "management consequences" within the company after further delays delivering its A400M military plane, reports the Financial Times, citing a speech given to U.K. government and military officials. The U.K. has ordered 22 planes in total, and Enders vowed to deliver seven of those to the Royal Air Force by late 2015. Germany is demanding penalty payments over deficiencies in the A400M already delivered to them, and the Financial Times notes that Airbus' defense and space division and its Spanish division are likely candidates for leadership changes.
