庞巴迪将以较低价格将铁路业务出售给阿尔斯通

蒙特利尔,9月16日(新华社)——总部位于蒙特利尔的庞巴迪公司周三宣布,它已经签署了一份最终协议,将其铁路部门出售给法国铁路巨头阿尔斯通公司,价格较两家公司今年早些时候签署的谅解备忘录有所降低。


该交易价格为71.5亿欧元(约合84亿美元),包括债务,比最初的交易条款下调了3亿欧元(约合3.5亿美元)。


这家加拿大跨国公司说,较低的价格在一定程度上被欧洲和美国货币之间更有利的汇率所抵消。


庞巴迪总裁兼首席执行官埃里克·马特尔在一份声明中表示:“今天的声明是我们实现短期优先目标和重新定位庞巴迪的一个重要里程碑。”“这笔交易的收益将使我们开始重塑资本结构,并开始通过偿还债务来解决资产负债表问题。”


庞巴迪目前预计通过此次销售获得约40亿美元的净收益,低于此前的42亿至45亿美元。其中包括5亿欧元(约合5.85亿美元)的阿尔斯通股票。


庞巴迪说,这笔交易预计将于2021年第一季度完成。


庞巴迪是世界上最大的铁路设备制造商之一,并继续收到新的订单,加强了337亿美元的积压。但据报道,近年来,由于合同问题,包括与德国联邦铁路公司(Deutsche Bahn)和伦敦地面公司(London Overground)的合同问题,该公司的业务一直停滞不前,这些合同导致了交付延迟和经济处罚。


这家加拿大公司在最近一个季度的火车业务上支出了4.35亿美元,造成了2.23亿美元的净亏损。

 

MONTREAL, Sept. 16 (Xinhua) -- Montreal-based Bombardier announced Wednesday that it has signed a definitive agreement for the sale of its rail unit to French train giant Alstom at a lowered price from a memorandum of understanding between the two companies earlier this year.

The price is 7.15 billion Euros (about 8.4 billion U.S. dollars) including debt, a downward adjustment of 300 million Euros (about 350 million U.S. dollars) from the original terms of the deal.

The lower price is offset to some extent by a more favorable exchange rate between European and U.S. currencies, the Canadian multinational said.

"Today's announcement marks a significant milestone towards achieving our near-term priorities and repositioning Bombardier," Bombardier President and Chief Executive Officer Eric Martel said in a statement. "The proceeds from this transaction will allow us to begin reshaping our capital structure and start addressing our balance sheet through debt paydown."

Bombardier now expects net proceeds of about 4 billion U.S. dollars from the sale, down from a range of 4.2-4.5 billion U.S. dollars. That amount includes 500 million Euros (about 585 million U.S. dollars) in Alstom stock.

The transaction is now expected to close in the first quarter of 2021, Bombardier said.

Bombardier is one of the world's largest manufacturers of rail equipment and continues to receive new orders, strengthening a backlog of 33.7 billion U.S. dollars. But Its business reportedly has been hamstrung in recent years by problems on contracts, including deals with Germany's Deutsche Bahn and London Overground, which have resulted in delivery delays and financial penalties.

The Canadian company took a charge of 435 million U.S. dollars on the train business in its latest quarter, which contributed to a net loss of 223 million U.S. dollars.
