BAE and VT in Babcock Talks

Friday, March 24, 2006
According to reports, BAE Systems and VT, revealed that they were considering a joint bid for Babcock, the support services and shipbuilding group, in a move that could trigger the consolidation of Britain's warship construction capability. VT could join with Babcock as a support services group, which could then sell VT's shipbuilding business to BAE and still have critical mass. This would create a single shipbuilding entity in BAE, which would find it easier to cut capacity and become more efficient. Source: The Guardian and The Financial Times
