    • As the industry bulks up to tackle record high output, French aero engine maker Safran (OTCPK:SAFRY) has agreed to buy seats manufacturer Zodiac Aerospace (OTCPK:ZODFY) for €8.5B to create the world's third-largest aerospace supplier.
    • Safran would pay €29.47 a Zodiac share, while investors receive 0.485 of a Safran share for each of Zodiac's, excluding a €5.50-a-share special dividend to be paid before closing.
    • The move comes only three months after Rockwell Collins agreed to pay $6.4B to acquire Zodiac's chief rival, B/E Aerospace, in a deal that would unite two of the biggest aerospace suppliers.

    • The European Union approves Airbus (OTCPK:EADSF, OTCPK:EADSY) and Safran's (OTC:SAFRF, OTCPK:SAFRY) joint takeover of Europe’s premier rocket launch company Arianespace on condition that the companies implement measures to prevent the exchange of sensitive information.
    • The companies agree to put in place firewalls between Airbus and Arianespace to prevent information flows that could hurt competitors, not to share information about outside companies with each other that does not apply to the daily operation of the business, and to restrict employee mobility between the companies.
    • The EU decision, which was expected, likely will result in Airbus Safran's payment of ~€150M ($166M) to the French space agency CNES, which holds the 35% stake on behalf of the French government.
