Alstom confirms tie-up talks with Siemens, discussions on-going

PARIS (Reuters) - French rail transport equipment company Alstom (ALSO.PA) confirmed on Friday that it was in discussions with German engineering group Siemens (SIEGn.DE) over a possible tie-up with Siemens mobility division.

    “No final decision has been made, discussions are on-going and no agreement has been reached,” Alstom said in a statement after Le Monde newspaper reported advanced talks were under way.

    The French government said earlier on Friday that it had nothing against a potential merger between the two companies if the deal does not lead to job cuts.
