Record commercial activity, strong improvement in results


On the back of this strong commercial activity, sales grew by 19% over the previous year. During the same period, a new improvement in performance led to an increase in income from operations by 35%, with an operating margin rising from 6.7% in 2006/07 to 7.7% in 2007/08.

Alstom recorded a net result of €852 million and an all-time high generation of free cash flow, making the company strongly cash positive in March 2008. Alstom will propose in its next Annual General Meeting to double the dividend to be paid to €1.6 per share.
