This indication of interest is subject to a number of conditions. There is no certainty that this will result in a transaction involving ITP Aero.

ITP Aero is a key partner for Rolls-Royce, and Rolls-Royce intends to retain a long-term relationship with the business across its Civil Aerospace and Defence programmes.

Any further announcement will be made as appropriate.
