Dear shareholders, in the first place, I would like to thank you for the confidence you have shown and continue to show towards Carbures, especially after a complicated end of 2014 and 2015, a time during which the Company has suffered, rather from external causes, beyond our activity and industrial production capacity, which, nevertheless, continued to increase, reaching its record of production of aircraft pieces last year, with about 40,000 units. Your trust is our fuel to keep growing, to continue working in an industrial group whose equity story has been proven, even in very complex circumstances. Your investment effort in shares of the Company supposes for us, the people who work in Carbures, the greatest incentive to give a new and major impulse to this Company.

Carbures will attend this year's Eurosatory fair, from the 13th to the 17th of June, which takes place in Paris.
This fair is specialized in defense and international security and puts the spotlight on solutions for land and air environments, bringing together the largest companies in the global industry sector. The commercial team of the three areas of the Aerospace & Defense division of Carbures (component structure manufacturing, navigation systems manufacturing and engineering) has considered necessary to attend this fair with its own stand (BA401) in order to get in touch with potential customers.
Carbures has introduced their new freight elevators for disabled people for the new DART train in Warsaw during these days. These elevators, called PMR, facilitate social integration of those suffering from any physical and psychological disabilities.
During mid-June it will be posible to take a look at one of the models of these elevators at the Show Room of Carbures’s site in El Burgo de Osma (Soria). Also, during late September, one of these models will be exhibited at the INNOTRANS 2016 fair in Berlin with other railway equipment and parts made in composites.
In order to strengthen the training of the use and maintenance of these devices, the Carbures Mobility division has attended this professional meeting together with the Polish railway operator PKP; PESA train manufacturer from the same country; our partner in maintenance, SELUCH; and the Polish market agent, Remigiusz.
Carbures has taken part in the ILA Berlin Air Show 2016. The Company has taken advantage of this opportunity to show its industrial strength in the aeronautical industry. This event, held every two years, brings together the leading companies in the sector worldwide.
Through multiple meetings with current and potential customers, Carbures A&D has presented its more than 15 years of industrial experience as a Tier 2 in aeronautics, its productive capacities, knowledge in manufacturing processes, engineering and systems in composite materials, and its expertise in its three main production areas.
