Piaggio Aviation Is For Sale

Piaggio Aerospace Calls For Expressions Of Interest In The Company

After receiving the relevant authorization from the Italian Ministry of Economic Development, Piaggio Aero Industries and its subsidiary Piaggio Aviation officially launch an international call for the sale of their business complexes with a notice published in a selected number of financial newspapers. The two companies, currently under Extraordinary Administration, operate under the Piaggio Aerospace brand.

Those interested in the purchase of all or part of the business complexes of the two companies – which, despite being two different entities from a legal standpoint, represent a unicum from an industrial standpoint – will have to send their expressions of interest to the Extraordinary Commissioner, Vincenzo Nicastro, no later than April 3, 2020. After assessing the quality and completeness of each proposals, the Commissioner will decide whether to admit the applicants to the following steps. Similarly, as the published announcement literally reads, "any final determination with regard to the sale shall […] be subject to the authorization of the Italian Ministry of Economic Development, after hearing the opinion of the Surveillance Committee."

"Just over a year since the extraordinary administration started, we have succeeded in creating a respectable order intake, which makes the company attractive for a buyer," said Nicastro. "We shall rigorously evaluate each of the offers that will reach us," he added, "with the aim of selling the company in its entirety and finding a buyer who can offer a solid, long-lasting recovery and development plan. We aim at concluding the process within the current year."

Piaggio Aerospace goes to potential buyers with approximately EUR 450-million orders in execution, to which further agreements will shortly be added for a value of EUR 450 million (approx. $495 million), thus bringing the total order intake to approximately EUR 900 million (approx. $989 million).

Piaggio Aerospace - which also controls the subsidiary Piaggio America in the United States - operates in the Aviation and Engine sectors. In particular, the Aircraft business unit focuses on the design, construction and maintenance of civil and military aircraft, along with customer service activities. The Engine business unit revolves around the construction and maintenance of aero-engines.
