Boeing Co. (BA) is in takeover talks with Brazilian aircraft maker Embraer SA (ERJ), a move to fortify the U.S. aerospace giant against recent efforts by its greatest rival to move into the market for smaller passenger jets.

Update(s):

January 19, 2018: Boeing Co (BA) is working to overcome the Brazilian military’s objections to its proposed tie-up with Embraer SA (ERJ) with alternatives that would preserve the government’s strategic veto rights and ensure safeguards for its defense programs, four people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

January 31, 2018: An unexpected U.S. trade ruling last week has added to pressure on Boeing Co (BA) and Embraer SA (ERJ) to pull off a proposed tie-up but it will still require careful coaxing to get the Brazilian government on board.

April 12, 2018: A new proposal for the tie-up between planemakers Boeing Co (BA) and Embraer SA (ERJ) that was submitted to Brazil’s government on Tuesday brings the deal closer, but there are still issues to be ironed out, four people with knowledge of the matter told Reuters.

July 05, 2018:  Embraer SA (ERJ) Chief Executive Officer Paulo Souza e Silva said the company is in the final stage of talks to combine operations with Boeing Co (BA), newspaper Valor Economico reported on its website late on Wednesday.
