Bombardier Inc. (TSX:BBD.B) says net income came in at $190 million in the first quarter, or 10 cents a share.
That compares to net income of $220 million, or 12 cents a share in the same period a year ago.
The Montreal-based company, which reports its results in U.S. dollars, says its quarterly revenue was $3.5 billion, compared to $4.7 billion last year.
"As anticipated, we had lower revenues in the first quarter," said Bombardier president and CEO Pierre Beaudoin.
"At Aerospace, the entry into service of the Vision Flight Deck on the Global 5000 and Global 6000 aircraft and the resulting transition, as well as lower deliveries of commercial aircraft, had an impact on our revenues," he said in a statement.
"Nevertheless, we were able to contain costs and maintain our profitability. We had a solid level of new orders in business jets and we're starting to see momentum in commercial aircraft orders which led to an increased backlog of $23.3 billion."
