ROLLS’ £5bn DEAL

Daily Express - - CITY& BUSINESS -

BRI­TISH en­gine maker Rolls-Royce has se­cured new or­ders worth £5bil­lion since the end of June.

The com­pany said trad­ing across all four busi­nesses was “good”but it was un­will­ing to fore­cast the im­pact of the eco­nomic down­turn on its mar­kets.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Sir John Rose said: “Clearly, the global econ­omy has de­te­ri­o­rated but it is too early to de­ter­mine the pre­cise ef­fect this will have.”

Re­cent con­tracts won by Rolls-Royce have in­cluded a £96mil­lion deal to help the Royal Navy power two of the world’s largest war­ships.
