Settlement of Tax Dispute

Cobham plc ('Cobham' or 'the Group') announces that it has reached an agreement with the UK tax authorities in respect of a significant, previously disclosed and long running dispute. This is in connection with the availability of interest deductions on one of the Group's internal financing structures, which was in place between 2008 and 2014. In the first half of 2019 Cobham will make a one-off net tax payment of £55m, together with a one-off interest payment of £14m, to finally settle the Group's exposure to this matter. This settlement is within the amounts previously provided by Cobham for tax.

Unrelated to this, and as disclosed in note 6 (Tax) of its 2018 Preliminary Results announcement, the Group continues to monitor developments relating to EC State Aid investigations. In April 2019, the EC's final decision on the UK Government's Controlled Foreign Company regime was that it partially represents State Aid. The UK Government has not yet announced how it would identify and seek to recover State Aid; Cobham estimates it could have additional tax payable of between £nil and approximately £60m.
