LUMIBIRD has confirmed interest in CILAS if the company was to be sold by its shareholders. “Such an acquisition would be in line with its development strategy,” LUMIBIRD noted.
CILAS and LUMIBIRD have highly complementary technology portfolios which together would constitute the European leader in laser technologies for the Defence market, and could thus be the technological partner of major Defence integrators.

In accordance with its obligations, LUMIBIRD will inform the market should this opportunity materialise.
