    Ultra shares bomb as it blames MoD over profit warning

    Since the beginning of the century, if you're a contractor to the Ministry of Defence, life has been fairly simple and clear-cut. Long-running conflicts like Iraq and Afghanistan meant there has been sufficient visibility for defence contractors in terms of demand for their products and services. The situation has now changed and companies like Ultra Electronics (Frankfurt: 909716 - news) are having to adjust accordingly.

    France and Germany edged towards achieving a 70-year-old ambition to integrate European defences on Monday, signing a pact with 21 other EU governments to fund, develop and deploy armed forces after Britain's decision to quit the bloc.

    EU to sign defence pact, may allow limited British role

    France, Germany and 20 other EU governments are set to sign a defence pact on Monday they hope marks a new era of European military integration to cement unity after Britain's decision to quit the bloc. In Europe's latest attempt to lessen its reliance on the United States, the 22 governments will create a formal club that should give the European Union a more coherent role in tackling international crises. The election of pro-European Emmanuel Macron as France's president and warnings by U.S. President Donald Trump that European allies must pay more towards their security have propelled the project forward, diplomats said.
