L-1 would benefit from Safran's technology, extended geographical reach, financial and management capabilities to further assist the company in accelerating the growth of its strong business in the United States and expansion in global key territories.

With this acquisition, Safran's pro forma 2011 revenues from its security business, focused on detection, biometrics and identity management is likely to exceed 15% of the Safran's global revenue.
