08:03 EDTEADSYOrbital ATK, Airbus finalize agreement on A350-1000 variant
Orbital ATK (OA) announced that it has finalized an agreement with Airbus (EADSY) to expand its current contract to include the manufacture of composite stringers and frames on the –1000 variant of the A350 program, adding to the work already being performed on the A350 program. This agreement builds on Orbital ATK’s valuable working relationship with Airbus and its partners. The Aerospace Structures Division of Orbital ATK’s Flight Systems Group is executing the A350 program at its Aircraft Commercial Center of Excellence facility in Clearfield, Utah. Orbital ATK is currently producing composite stringers and frames for the A350-900 and has successfully delivered more than 44,000 parts since the inception of the program. Orbital ATK expects that the contract expansion will require future hiring of additional professional and manufacturing employees, benefiting the local job market in Utah.

20:33 EDTEADSYMedia reports say Lockheed to buy UTX's Sikorsky
According to media reports, Lockheed Martin (LMT) has agreed to purchase United Technologies' (UTX) Sikorsky unit. The news comes after several months of speculation surrounding Sikorsky, and an announcement could be made just a day prior to second quarter earnings for both United and Lockheed. WHAT'S NEW: Reuters reported on Sunday that Lockheed Martin has agreed to buy Sikorsky Aircraft from United Technologies for over $8B, according to two sources, adding that the deal is set to be formally announced on Monday. The news was later echoed by Bloomberg, citing a person familiar with the talks. WHAT'S NOTABLE: United Technologies first reported that it was exploring strategic options for its Sikorsky unit on March 11. At the time, the company noted that options included a spinoff or a stand-alone public company, saying that the split could allow United "to better focus on providing high-technology systems and services to the aerospace and building industries." Following the announcement, UBS remarked that it was "not surprised" and reiterated a $136 price target on United shares. On May 20, the Wall Street Journal quoted sources as saying Boeing (BA), Airbus (EADSY) and Lockheed submitted bids for the helicopter maker, with a speculated deal thought to reach the $10B area. A June 9 report from Reuters added Textron (TXT) to the list of bidders. Today's news -- though unconfirmed by either United or Lockheed -- comes ahead of second quarter earnings reports for both companies scheduled for Tuesday, July 21. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Lockheed Martin declined 0.22% to $201.18 at the close of trading on July 17, while those of United Technologies fell 0.45% to $110.76.
16:33 EDTBRGYYShell expects 'billions' more in synergies from BG Group deal, FT says
Shell (RDS.A, RDS.B) CFO Simon Henry told a group of roughly 40 investors and analysts that the company's proposed acquisition of BG Group (BRGYY) is financially sound despite less-than-ideal oil prices due to "value synergies" at a multiple of $1B, reports the Financial Times, citing sources present at Henry's speech. The CFO insisted that the takeover works even with oil near $70 a barrel, explaining that cash flow would be immediately improved and the current dividend would be maintained, said the sources.
