Simultaneously launches new relationship with Development Bank of Japan
TORONTO, April 21, 2014 /CNW/ - The Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan (Teachers') today announced it has entered into a new strategic partnership with GE Aviation to support the development of advanced technologies for the GE9X engine.
In connection with this partnership, Teachers' also entered into an inaugural transaction with the Development Bank of Japan (DBJ) that establishes an ongoing global relationship based on providing innovative financing.
The GE9X engine will power Boeing's new wide-body 777X aircraft, and is expected to provide a 10% improvement in fuel consumption over the existing GE90-115B engine. The 777X aircraft is scheduled to enter service in 2020.
"GE Aviation is a forward thinking, globally focused industry leader, while DBJ is a very important long term global partner as we continue to expand our scope in Asia and they increasingly seek opportunities outside of Japan," said Michael Wissell, Teachers' Senior Vice-President, Public Equities. "This transaction exemplifies the value of such relationships with like-minded partners."
No financial details have been disclosed.
