There have been press comments that a "statement of objections" would be issued by the European Commission associated with the investigation of the sale of Alstoms Energy businesses to General Electric. This is a usual step in a phase II merger case and it does not prejudge the outcome of the investigation. This will allow both General Electric and Alstom to address specific matters pointed out by the investigating team. We will continue to provide evidence on the positive impact of this deal for Europe, including the future competitive landscape.
