BAE Systems (NYSE:BAESY) announced that it is currently talking about a merger with European Aeronautic, Defense and Space Co. (EADSY), but Wells Fargo does not believe that the U.S. defense contractors’ multiples will show any expansion as a result of the news, due to the fact that BAE Systems is trading at a low multiple. The U.S. Defense Department would need to be involved in the merger, according to the firm, who also notes that historically, the U.S. has been more restrictive in regards to letting classified businesses be owned by non-U.S. and non-UK parent companies.
