Frost & Sullivan's Business Financial Services Financial Analyst Bharath M.

In the current state of the global economy, investors are increasingly becoming cautious and risk averse regarding their portfolio investments. This translates into a restraint for the aerospace and defense industry as investors are unwilling to commit huge amounts of money in an industry that is characterized by high capital requirements and longer gestation periods. Given this, an analysis of the financial performance of companies in this industry becomes important in order to aid investment-related decision making.

Attendees of the presentation will get an insight into the key business and financial risks faced by this industry's participants, as well as an analysis of public companies based on profitability, liquidity, activity and solvency ratios. The presentation will offer participants a chance to identify top performers in the industry, and also learn about creating a portfolio that maximizes their returns for a given level of risk, while also getting a chance to ask our analyst questions during a live Q&A post-event.

This briefing will benefit companies operating in the aerospace and defense, as well as airline and airport services industries, private equity and venture capital investors, fund managers, retail investors, sovereign wealth fund, hedge funds, insurance funds and other members of the investing community. For companies operating in the industry, this briefing provides key industry ratios based on Frost & Sullivan analysis of public companies included within the study: Financial Assessment of Global Aerospace and Defense, Airlines and Airport Services Industries. For investors, the presentation will give important financial ratios and an insight into ideal portfolio allocation.
