BAE Systems is a multinational defence, aerospace and electronic research company. It is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 100 share price index. The company can trace its history back to British Aerospace which was created in the 1970s as a result of the nationalisation and merger of British Aircraft Corporation, Scottish Aviation and Hawker Siddeley.

By the mid-1980s this company had been transformed into a plc, and the UK government had divested its shares. In this decade British Aerospace acquired Royal Ordnance and Heckler & Koch defence companies as well as car manufacturer the Rover Group. After further acquisitions and diversification (including Hutchinson Telecom, operators of the Orange mobile phone brand) the company began divesting its non-defence interests in the 1990s selling off the Rover Group, its corporate jets business and reducing its shareholding in Hutchinson Telecom. In 1999 the company merged with Marconi Electronic Systems creating BAE Systems. Marconi itself had a long and distinguished history in telecommunications and defence. This was the result of a period of consolidation throughout the industry and left BAE as one of the strongest vertically integrated defence contractors in the world. The company previously also had an interest in passenger aircraft via its stake in Airbus, with two wing production facilities in the UK, however, BAE's 20% stake in Airbus was sold in 2006. In 2007 the company had revenues of over £15 billion, and pre-tax profits of over £1.4 billion.

FTSE Gains In Spite of Ukraine Fears

News - Wednesday, March 19, 2014

The FTSE 100 climbed slightly on Tuesday, in spite of continuing fears over the situation in the Ukraine. Investors shook off early fears about the likely content of a speech by the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, after the speech turned out to be generally conillatory in tone.

FTSE Struggles Thanks to Weak Miners

News - Friday, February 21, 2014

The FTSE 100 had a difficult trading day on Thursday, thanks to poor performances in the mining sector. The UK’s leading index tracked gains seen in the U.S., but progress was held back by the announcement of falling factory activity in China, and BAE Systems forecasting lower earnings this year.
