France's Safran SA has entered exclusive talks to acquire Orolia SA, a company that provides technology used in civilian, military and space operations, it said Monday.

The aerospace and defense company is in talks to buy Orolia from Eurazeo SE, and envisions expanding it under Orolia's current chief executive, Jean-Yves Courtois.

"This acquisition represents a unique opportunity for Safran and Orolia to extend their Resilient [Positioning, Navigation and Timing] solutions, through their remarkable complementarities," Safran said.

Terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

Orolia is expected to generate revenue of 100 million euros ($113.1 million) in 2021, Safran said.

Orolia would be consolidated into Safran's equipment and defense division upon closing of the deal, which is expected to take place around mid 2022.
