"Our performance in the third quarter reflects strong underlying demand for our Civil market solutions, and points to the ongoing progress to transform our Defense business. We also generated strong free cash flow, enabling us to bolster our financial position in line with our leverage targets," said Marc Parent, CAE's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Further securing CAE's future, we booked nearly $1.3 billion in total order intake during the quarter, for an $11.7 billion backlog. In Civil, orders were $845 million, for a 1.36 times book-to sales ratio, including 20 full-flight simulator orders, new training partnerships with marquee airlines such as Air France KLM Group, and over $300 million of business jet training orders. We have considerable headroom for growth in the civil aviation market and our continued positive momentum underscores the strong demand for CAE's highly differentiated training and flight services solutions and our ability to win share within this large secular growth market. In Defense, performance was consistent with our expectations at this point on the path toward being able to generate higher margins. We continued to replenish our backlog with more profitable work and sought to further accelerate the retirement of outstanding program risks, mainly associated with certain legacy Defense contracts that we entered into pre-COVID and have been most impacted by economic headwinds.

As we look to the remainder of the fiscal year, we continue to expect annual Civil adjusted segment operating income growth in the mid- to high-teens percentage range. In Defense, our focus remains on completing the remaining work scope on legacy contracts and as much as possible, accelerating risk retirements in the fourth quarter and into fiscal 2025. We expect to close the sale of our Healthcare business before the end of the fiscal year, subject to closing conditions, including customary regulatory approvals. This is a milestone toward the reinstatement of cash returns to shareholders and the Board is now actively evaluating options in terms of the form, quantum, and timing of such returns."

Civil Aviation (Civil)

Third quarter Civil revenue was $622.1 million vs. $517.4 million in the third quarter last year. Operating income was $101.0 million (16.2% of revenue) compared to $117.2 million (22.7% of revenue) in the same quarter last year. Adjusted segment operating income was $124.2 million (20.0% of revenue) compared to $131.4 million (25.4% of revenue) in the third quarter last year. During the quarter, Civil delivered 13 full-flight simulators (FFSs) to customers and third quarter Civil training centre utilization was 76%.

During the quarter, Civil signed training solutions contracts valued at $845.4 million, including a range of long-term commercial and business aviation training agreements and 20 FFS sales, for a total of 57 as of the end of the third quarter of the fiscal year. Notable awards in the quarter included long-term training services contracts with marquee airlines including Air France KLM Group, and it renewed a flight services agreement with Azul Linhas Aereas Brasileiras. Business aviation accounted for over $300 million of Civil adjusted order intake in the third quarter, driven primarily by training services agreements with U.S. based customers including, Solairus Aviation and Clay Lacy Aviation. 

The Civil book-to-sales ratio(1) was a robust 1.36 times for the quarter and 1.27 times for the last 12 months. The Civil adjusted backlog at the end of the quarter was a record $6.1 billion.
