    Britain's Serco buoys shares with outsourcing outlook

Although Chief Executive Rupert Soames was positive about the prospects for Serco once Britain's exit from the European Union is decided, he said the pipeline was unpredictable.

    Babcock results overshadowed by UK defence spending worries

    Babcock (BAB.L) warned that British defence spending reviews could slow revenue growth at its land division next year, sending shares in the engineering outsourcing company 5 percent lower despite first-half earnings in line with expectations. The British group, which provides design, production, maintenance and training services for the defence and engineering industry, derives three quarters of its revenue from the UK and its shares have come under sustained pressure from expectations that Brexit will delay customer decision-making. The stock is down 20 percent in the past 6 months, roughly in line with other British outsourcers, which broker Peel Hunt said reflects investor concern over pressures on the funding of UK defence programmes, the issues at other companies in the outsourcing sub-sector and increased political uncertainty.

    Leonardo, Airbus to bid for UK 'Top Gun' training deal - sources

    Competition is heating up for a $1.6 billion deal to provide air combat training for Britain's military as arms firms look for stable revenues amid scarce demand for their hardware, despite an uptick in defence spending, industry sources said. In a re-run of a recent duel over helicopter training, Italy's Leonardo and Europe's Airbus are both preparing to enter the race to replace a mixture of private and military training for UK forces from 2020, the sources said. Leonardo is considering an offer to supply its Aermacchi M-346 trainer for the competition known as 'Air Support to Defence Operational Training (ASDOT)' together with an unidentified British contractor.
