MONTREAL, June 18 (Reuters) - Bombardier’s chief executive told shareholders at its annual general meeting on Thursday that a deal to sell its rail division to France’s Alstom SA remains “pretty much on track to our original timeline.”
Eric Martel said Bombardier “is making good progress” with asset sales, including the rail deal worth up to 6.2 billion euros ($6.96 billion).
The rail deal, which is subject to regulatory clearance, is expected to close in the first half of 2021.
