Airbus Completing the CSeries Acquisition Transaction Today?
On May 18 I wrote "Will Bombardier, Quebec Government and Airbus deal for the control over the CSeries be completed by… Friday the 25? Thursday the 31? (after markets are closed).Ah! Could the SWISS MSN 55030 be the first one delivered under Airbus's control making SWISS the First A200 Client? If not, it will be Korean Air MAN 55031 will be."
I was not far. My little finger is telling me that it would be closing today on the last Friday of the month. May 25 is the date where the deal with Airbus taking control of the CSeries from Bombardier and the government of Quebec would close. I'm expecting this to be completed either before the Toronto stock market opens or after it has closed today, Friday. Else it would be for June 1, the following Friday. Stating tomorrow, Bombardier employees are segregated from the rest of the Bombardier staff located at the Mirabel Airbus CSeries facility starting at midnight today. Also there will be no more possibily of transfer from one company to the other.

As I also wrote on May 22; "Right from the time the closing is announced Want to know when Airbus is closing the CSeries acquisition taking effective control of what used to be Bombardier CSeries? Check when the "abc.airbus" internet name will resolve… Yes, "abc" stands for Airbus Canada. Not a .com
The new e-mail addresses are going to be email@example.com All CSeries employees will be automatically converted. Mails addressed to the old @aero.bombardier.com address are going to be forwarded for a temporary period of time."
The name www.abs.airbus is now resolving to an IP address but will no web page still.We are close to the news of the closing of this transaction!
