FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Thyssenkrupp (TKAG.DE) has agreed to buy the 49 percent of maritime technology company Atlas Elektronik it does not already own from Airbus (AIR.PA) for an undisclosed price, Thyssenkrupp and Airbus said on Thursday.
"The full takeover will allow even closer cooperation between Atlas Elektronik and Thyssenkrupp Marine Systems, for example in product development," the German industrial group said in a statement.
Airbus said it was selling the stake as part of its defense and space divestment program to focus on its core business.
