The acquisition will be implemented by way of a court-approved scheme of arrangement under the U.K. Companies Act of 2006.

The acquisition, which is valued at approximately $112 million, will enable Clipper to fully leverage UTC's management and operational expertise, as well as its technology in blades, turbines and gearbox design.
