MONTREAL/PARIS Feb 7 (Reuters) - Europe’s Airbus SE is likely to acquire Bombardier Inc’s remaining stake in the A220 passenger jet program, two industry sources said on Friday.
A deal for Airbus to buy the 33.58% share in the program was widely expected after Bombardier said in January it was reviewing the stake in the joint venture. While a deal is not finalized, it is expected as soon as next week, ahead of both companies’ earnings on Feb. 13, the sources added. Airbus and Bombardier both declined comment.
