In the first phase Airbus Group and Safran would create a joint program company in order to contribute their respective civil program contracts and major participations related to civil launcher activities. Subsequently, industrial assets would be contributed overtime in order to create a world class, fully-fledged jointly owned competitive company. Airbus Group and Safran will submit the creation of the Joint Venture to all respective approvals required. Signing of the first phase of the transaction and an initial start of operations of the Joint Venture are expected before the end of 2014.
