Abstract: Suppose is a singular matrix function on a simple, closed, rectifiable contour . We present a necessary and sufficient condition for normal solvability of the Riemann problem with coefficient in the case where admits a spectral (or generalized Wiener-Hopf) factorization with essentially bounded. The boundedness of is not required when takes injective values a.e. on .
