• Leonardo strengthens its leadership position in the rapidly growing force protection market;
• The combination is an excellent fit strategically, commercially and financially for Leonardo;
• RADA is an excellent fit for both Leonardo DRS and the wider Leonardo Group;
• The transaction also achieves listing Leonardo DRS in the current context of highly volatile markets, delivering on promises.
 
As previously disclosed, Leonardo will retain an 80.5% ownership in the Combined Company through its US subsidiary Leonardo US Holding, with RADA existing shareholders owning the remaining 19.5%. Leonardo DRS’ stock will be listed on the NASDAQ and the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (“TASE”) under the symbol “DRS” effective at the opening of NASDAQ trading on November 29, 2022 and TASE trading on November 30, 2022.

The combination is an excellent fit strategically, commercially and financially for Leonardo, allowing the Group to achieve a unique position in the land radar segment thanks to the synergy from its product portfolio together with that of RADA, Hensoldt and GEM. The transaction will also give Leonardo a stable domestic presence in the Israeli industrial context, supporting the further development of Leonardo's international markets, while allowing RADA to access opportunities in European and export markets and programmes, leveraging Leonardo's global presence.

The transaction will also allow the opportunity to realise the benefits deriving from the listing of Leonardo DRS.

Alessandro Profumo, Leonardo CEO, stated: “This is the finalization of the process of combining Leonardo DRS and RADA, an important strategic move by Leonardo in the rapidly growing force protection market, which is at the core of today’s and tomorrow’s defence market. There is an excellent fit between our US subsidiary Leonardo DRS, RADA and Leonardo Group that will provide growth, further margin expansion and opportunities in the Group. With this transaction we also seizing the opportunity of listing Leonardo DRS in the current context of volatile markets, thus delivering on what we promised.”

In recent years, Leonardo has successfully reinforced Leonardo DRS’s competitive positioning (leonardodrs.com), delivering on promises, focusing it on its core business, through the previously announced dispositions of GES and AAC, and now making a significant strategic step forward, with the combination with RADA (rada.com), adding a strong business in active defence solutions.

"We look forward to bringing Leonardo DRS’s mid-tier strength to the public markets with the addition of RADA’s leading tactical radar capabilities” said William J. Lynn III, Chairman & CEO of Leonardo DRS. “Leonardo DRS’s broad exposure to fast growing segments in the defence market and market leading positions in advanced sensing, force protection, network computing and electric power & propulsion make us a unique defence contractor with a compelling growth outlook, margin expansion capabilities and a largely unlevered balance sheet”.
