Bombardier (TSX: BBD.B) confirmed its support of the commitments announced by Alstom earlier today to address potential concerns raised by the European Commission in relation to Alstom’s acquisition of Bombardier Transportation, including the disposition of certain assets currently held by Bombardier Transportation. Commitments to be submitted to the European Commission include:
- A transfer of Bombardier Transportation’s contribution to the V300 ZEFIRO very high-speed train platform;
- The divestment of the Alstom Coradia Polyvalent mainline train platform and the Reichshoffen production site in France;
