On Monday, Embraer announced that it finalized the terms of a proposed deal to sell 80% of its commercial aviation business to Boeing Co. As of now, the Brazilian aircraft manufacturer's commercial aviation unit is valued at $5.26 billion - that’s higher than the $4.75 billion estimated when the deal was originally announced in July.
The sale could fetch Embraer around $3 billion after accounting for closing costs. The deal is still subject to shareholder approvals at both Embraer and Boeing. Embraer's board Monday put forth the proposed deal for approval from the Brazilian government.
Additionally, Embrarer revealed plans of a joint venture with Boeing on promoting defense plane KC-390. Embraer will have 51% ownership of the operation.
