Airbus has agreed to acquire Danish aircraft parts distributor Satair for more than $500 million. Shares in Satair rose 22.8% on the news in Copenhagen. Airbus will offer Satair shareholders 580 Danish crowns in cash and warrant holders 378.66 crowns in a tender to be backed by Satair’s board. With this deal, Airbus will become a distributor of parts for rival Boeing as Satair holds a long-term supply-chain agreement with the US manufacturer dating back to 2006.
