London The engine manufacturer who came under pressure in the corona pandemic Rolls-Royce is considering a billion dollar capital raising. To strengthen its balance sheet, the British company says it could get up to £ 2.5 billion. A capital increase or the issue of bonds are conceivable.
The “Financial Times” had previously reported that the company was in talks with foreign sovereign wealth funds in order to raise funds. In August, the company announced that it would improve its liquidity and therefore want to break loose parts of the company.
Rolls-Royce posted a record loss of 5.4 billion pounds in the first half of the year due to the flight bans to contain the corona pandemic.
