The agreement comprises an all-cash transaction for $63 per share and the assumption of approximately $1.0 billion of net debt, totaling $4.25 billion.

Spirit shares will be acquired by the HAECO Group and the company will be renamed to HAECO Composite Structures (JinJiang), with the HAECO Group as a majority shareholder. While the joint venture has been beneficial to both parties for almost a decade, Spirit’s MRO strategies for the future dictate that the company divests from the joint venture and the companies operate independently.


StandardAero Component Services (SACS)  has announced it will unify its Jet Aviation Specialists (JAS) and PAS Technologies brands underneath a single StandardAero Components Services brand name, effective immediately.

While the brands are changing, the legal entity/names of JAS and PAS Technologies will remain unchanged so customers will not need to change their systems. In addition, legal entities listed on airworthiness authority certifications and releases will also remain unchanged.
