PARIS, Feb 6 (Reuters) - French conglomerate Bouygues , which has a 28 percent stake in Alstom, said it regretted the European Union’s decision to veto a merger between Alstom and Siemens but added it was confident over Alstom’s prospects.
“Whatever happens, Alstom will continue to develop on its own path,” Bouygues said in a statement.
“As the key shareholder, Bouygues backs Alstom’s strategy and is confident about its future,” added Bouygues. (Reporting by Sudip Kar-Gupta; editing by Jason Neely)
