The European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company or the EADS was created by the combined will of several states to be competitive in the space and aeronautics sector. Yet, at the beginning of the 1990s, many concentrations were developed on the American market like Northrop and Grumman which merged in 1993, Raytheon and BAE Business Jets in 1994 and Lockheed and Martin Marietta in 1996. This will expressed by the German, French and Spanish states resulted in a merger of three companies: the French aerospace company Matra SA, the Spanish Casa and the German Daimler Chrysler aerospace. The challenge was difficult because it was about "mixing" different economies and cultures. Moreover, the management was designed to be bicephalous, which means that the two Chief Executives Officers were of different nationalities, and had two different ways of management. For several years, EADS has been facing many challenges, like the delay of delivery of the A380, the competition with Boeing, illegal insider trading, the financial crisis and so on. The following report gives an overview of the EADS Company, its managing system, and finally we analyze its finance and provide some recommendations.
