"Investors bash United Technologies' plan to split in three following a year-long antitrust battle" by Aaron Gregg


Byron Callan quoted in Aaron Gregg's Washington Post article "Investors bash United Technologies' plan to split in three following a year-long antitrust battle," published on November 27, 2018. 

The article reads:

Byron Callan, a defense industry investment analyst with Capital-Alpha Partners, said any merger of United Technologies' defense assets would face an uphill battle in a defense industry where resources are already concentrated at the top.

“You’ve already had this battle raging with Boeing and consolidation among its suppliers, and United Technologies has been a part of that,” said Byron Callan, a defense industry investment analyst with Capital-Alpha Partners. “Regulators would probably look very closely at this new [United Technologies] company if it were to combine with another major defense company.”

"Khashoggi outcry galvanizes critics against Saudi arms sales" by Christian Davenport and Aaron Gregg.


Byron Callan was quoted in Christian Davenport and Aaron Gregg's Washington Post article, "Khashoggi outcry galvanizes critics against Saudi arms sales," published on October 19, 2018.

The article reads:

Byron Callan, a defense analyst with Capital Alpha Partners investment bank, said that despite the uproar over the apparent killing of a journalist, business will proceed uninterrupted.

“We continue to believe that the death of Jamal Khashoggi will not lead to a major break in U.S. or European defense sales to Saudi Arabia, but the issue could linger in 2019-2020 and the war in Yemen,” he wrote Thursday in a note to investors. “We believe it is implausible that Trump would cut off sales to [Saudi Arabia].”
