    EU clears merger of French aerospace suppliers Safran and Zodiac

    The European Commission cleared the merger of French aerospace suppliers Safran (SAF.PA) and Zodiac (ZODC.PA) without imposing conditions, the EU executive said on Thursday. Reuters had reported exclusively last Friday that the Commission, which acts as the competition watchdog in the European Union, would let the deal go ahead. While both companies supply aircraft electrical systems, the Commission said the increase in market share the merger caused was very limited and the newly formed group would not gain power over suppliers and customers.

    European shares lag Wall Street, ECB provides no momentum

    European shares lagged their U.S. peers and closed in negative territory on Thursday, as a busy day of central bank meetings failed to provide momentum even though the European Central Bank raised its growth and inflation forecasts. Europe's STOXX 600 ended the day down 0.46 percent, while U.S. stocks climbed higher in morning trading, boosted by news that a long-awaited tax cutting bill should face final votes in Congress before the year-end. "The only reason for U.S. stocks to overperform today is the hope of a tax reform", said Nicolas Cheron, head of research at Binck, adding that investors were typically cautious at this time of the year before often heading into a "Christmas rally".

    Pratt & Whitney in hot seat as Airbus profits fall

    Airbus turned up the heat on engine maker Pratt & Whitney over delays that have disrupted its biggest production line, after reporting a sharp drop in mid-year profits on Thursday. Airbus's shares fell as much as 4.6 percent as investors contrasted its fortunes with those of U.S. arch-rival Boeing (NYSE: BA - news) , whose stock hit a record high on Wednesday after its quarterly profit and cashflow beat estimates. Airbus Chief Executive Tom Enders challenged Pratt & Whitney, whose fuel-saving Geared Turbofan (GTF) engine is tied to thousands of orders for small A320neo jetliners, to "work harder" to fix delays and reliability problems.

    TCI calls on Safran to drop Zodiac deal and fix engines

    LONDON/PARIS, May 12 (Reuters) - Activist investor TCI Fund Management has called on the board of French aerospace firm Safran (LSE: 0IU8.L - news) to cancel a takeover of Zodiac Aerospace (LSE: 0NR6.L - news) immediately and instead focus on fixing design problems with a new engine. The move is the latest attempt by TCI to stop Safran's $9 billion deal with struggling Zodiac, which the British hedge fund considered too expensive even before the latest profit warning from the maker of aircraft seats. In a letter to the Safran board dated May 12, TCI said instead of pursuing the takeover, which would take up a lot of management time and focus, it should instead look to fix a problem with its new LEAP engine.

    Zodiac Aerospace (LSE: 0NR6.L - news) 's chief executive has offered his resignation after another profit warning from the French company, which is continuing talks with Safran to seal a merger and end a crisis in its aircraft seat factories.

The firms announced a deal for Safran to take control in January, but it ran into criticism over its complex structure, crafted to preserve tax breaks for a group of family shareholders, and new problems at Zodiac's UK plants.
