Rolls-Royce Holdings PLC and Safran Agree Transfer of RTM322 Helicopter Engine Programme to Turbomeca


Tuesday, 23 Apr 2013 02:00am EDT 

Rolls-Royce Holdings PLC announced that it has reached agreement to sell its shareholding and interest in the RTM322 helicopter engine programme to Turbomeca (a Safran company). The Company's 50% interest in the engine programme will be progressively transferred to Turbomeca, which will then hold 100% of the RTM322 programme. The Company will receive a cash consideration of €293 million for its shareholding and interest in the programme. Turbomeca will assume full responsibility for the design, production and support of the RTM322 engine, which powers the Apache, EH101 Merlin and NH90 helicopters. The Company will provide full assistance to Turbomeca during the multi-year transition period to ensure all RTM322 customers continue to receive effective support. The RRTM Adour engine programme, which powers the Hawk and Jaguar aircraft, is unaffected by this agreement, as are the other helicopter engine programmes in the Rolls-Royce portfolio. The sale is expected to complete before year end, subject to closing conditions. Work is expected to be transferred to Turbomeca over three years and the Company will work closely with employee representatives to manage any employment impact.
