It would be a marriage of European acronyms as U.K.-based BAE Systems plc and EADS of Toulouse, France, apparently are in talks to merge. The New York Times reports
that the combined companies, both aerospace giants, would surpass Boeing Co. in revenue.
However, for the deal to pass muster of regulators parts of the businesses would likely need to be sold.
Both companies have significant U.S. business with BAE Systems ranking No. 20 on the 2012 Washington Technology Top 100
list of the largest contractors in the U.S. federal market.
