"As we have previously stated, we are willing to pay full and fair value for TRW and encourage TRW to provide information supporting any additional hidden value. However, we need to conduct due diligence before we can enter into substantive discussions that could lead to a negotiated transaction. We remain confident that a combination of TRW and Northrop Grumman would be in the best interests of TRW shareholders and employees," Kresa said.
