The transaction is expected to be completed in the first half of 2024, pending customary regulatory approvals and conditions.

Strengthening the Portfolio with Ball Aerospace

Moreover, it forecasts a remarkable compound annual growth rate of around 10% for the next five years, with promising growth prospects even beyond that period.

Funding the Acquisition

To finance the proposed acquisition, BAE Systems will utilize a combination of newly obtained external debt and its existing cash resources.
