Siemens-Alsthom merger questions

Postby Paul1705 » Sat Jul 07, 2018 10:47 am

Is the new company going to use both names? Will they be offering separate product lines?

I've heard that they are merging their transportation divisions, but not the entire corporations.

So far Alstom is promising not to immediately cut jobs or factories in France, but who know how long that will remain true?

I haven't yet found any information about product lines, but it's probably too early for decisions on that. Everyone seems to admit that future competition from CRRC is a major factor.

The European Union has initiated a full investigation into the proposed merger given a concern about the lack of competition that will result if it goes ahead
