Rolls-Royce Holdings PLC said Wednesday that it continues to review a range of funding options to further strengthen its balance sheet, but that it has yet to make a final decision.

The U.K. engineering company said it is mulling the idea of debt and equity as a part of its funding options review.

It noted that it has already taken action to strengthen its liquidity with 6.1 billion pounds ($7.86 billion), and with a further GBP2 billion term loan agreed in the second half of the year.

This is intended to complement the already-announced cost-mitigation worth GBP1 billion in 2020, as well as the reorganization of its civil-aerospace business to save an additional GBP1.3 billion annually.

Moreover, the company said it has identified a number of potential disposals that are expected to generate proceeds of more than GBP2 billion over the next 18 months, which include the sale of ITP Aero.
