Press Contacts

Visit our media section and follow the link "Press contacts"

The proposed combination of Siemens mobility business with Alstom continues to progress with the merger control process advancing in all relevant jurisdictions. Today, Siemens and Alstom have jointly filed the application for merger control clearance with the European Commission.

Due to extended pre-filing preparations and data gathering efforts in multiple countries, a resulting delay of a few months leading to an expected closing date during first half of calendar year 2019 cannot be excluded. 

The transaction is subject to the approval of Alstom shareholders at the companys Shareholders Meeting, to be convened on July 17, 2018, and the approval of competition authorities. 

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

This communication does not constitute an offer to purchase, sell or exchange, or the solicitation of an offer to purchase, sell or exchange, any securities. The shares of Alstom may not be offered or sold in the United States of America except pursuant to an effective registration statement or pursuant to a valid exemption from registration under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended. 

This announcement includes statements related to future business and financial performance and future events or developments involving Siemens and Alstom that may constitute forward-looking statements, including but not limited to statements relating to Alstoms and Siemenss beliefs and expectations regarding the proposed combination of the Combined Business, benefits that would be afforded to customers, benefits to the Combined Business that are expected to be obtained as a result of the proposed combination and the relevant parties ability to enhance shareholder value through, among other things, the delivery of cost savings and expected synergies. These statements are based on certain assumptions and reflect Alstom's and Siemens' current expectations. Any forward-looking statements made by or on behalf of Alstom or Siemens speak only as of the date they are made. Alstom and Siemens each disclaim any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

These forward-looking statements may be identified by words such as expect, look forward to, anticipate, intend, plan, believe, seek, estimate, will, project or words of similar meaning. We may also make forward-looking statements in other reports, in presentations, in materials delivered to shareholders and in press releases. In addition, our representatives may from time to time make oral forward-looking statements. Such statements are based on the current expectations and assumptions of Alstoms and Siemenss respective management teams, and depend on numerous factors that are beyond Alstoms or Siemenss control. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and factors, including but not limited to: the failure of Alstoms shareholders to approve the proposed combination; the effect of regulatory conditions, if any, imposed by regulatory authorities; the reaction of Alstoms and Siemenss customers, employees and suppliers to the proposed combination; the ability to promptly and effectively integrate the businesses of Alstom and Siemens; the diversion of management time on merger-related issues; and those risks described in disclosures that have been made or will be made with regulatory authorities such as the French Autorité des marchés financiers (the AMF) and in particular in the chapter titled Risk Factors and Risks of the respective Annual Reports of Alstom and Siemens. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying expectations or assumptions prove to be incorrect, the actual results, performance, financial condition and prospects of Alstom or Siemens may vary materially from those expressed or implied in the relevant forward-looking statements. Neither Alstom nor Siemens intends, nor assumes any obligation, to update or revise these forward-looking statements in light of subsequent developments, new information or circumstances that differ from those currently anticipated. There can be no assurance that the proposed combination will be consummated or that the anticipated benefits will be realised. The proposed combination is subject to various regulatory approvals and the fulfilment of certain conditions, and there can be no assurance that any such approvals will be obtained and/or such conditions will be met.
