Abstract: Suppose $G$ is a singular matrix function on a simple, closed, rectifiable contour $\Gamma $. We present a necessary and sufficient condition for normal solvability of the Riemann problem with coefficient $G$ in the case where $G$ admits a spectral (or generalized Wiener-Hopf) factorization $G_{+} \Lambda G_{-}$ with $G_{-}^{\pm 1}$ essentially bounded. The boundedness of $G_{-}^{\pm 1}$ is not required when $G$ takes injective values a.e. on $\Gamma $.
