Faurecia and Parrot have finalised a proposal concerning the take-over of 100% of Parrot Automotive by Faurecia, ahead of schedule.
This transaction underlines the importance of Parrot Automotive in Faurecia’s Cockpit of the Future strategy. It would accelerate the development of infotainment solutions based on the Android operating system by Parrot Automotive and the development of an open platform integrating the different connected systems and functionalities of the vehicle interior.
This will also facilitate the introduction of innovative and differentiating user experiences such as for postural and thermal comfort, immersive sound experience and new HMI solutions.
The transaction would be based on an enterprise value of €100 million ($118 million), identical to that used when Faurecia entered into the capital of Parrot Automotive in 2017.
This project is subject to consultation of the Parrot Automotive and Parrot SA Works Councils and to the agreement of the antitrust authorities. It would be closed during the third quarter of 2018.
