LONDON/MONTREAL (Reuters) - The European Commission’s decision to block a tie-up between Alstom and Germany’s Siemens is fueling speculation over possible merger talks between the French rail business and Canada’s Bombardier, lifting both companies’ shares on Wednesday. EU anti-trust regulators rejected the Alstom-Siemens deal, saying that it would have hurt competition and led to higher prices for consumers, despite concessions offered by the companies. The deal’s collapse helped Bombardier avoid the creation of the world’s second largest rail company that would be roughly twice its size.
It also gives the Canadian plane and train maker “a better set of options,” when weighing strategies like potential miami marlins game used baseball cufflinks mergers, said Toronto-based AltaCorp analyst Chris Murray, “Ultimately the need to consolidate in the industry has not gone away.”, Rail companies are eyeing consolidation to reduce costs through scale in a market dominated by China’s state-owned CRRC, the world’s largest train maker, Following the news, Berenberg analysts upgraded Alstom to a ‘buy’ rating and set a new price target of 42 euros ($47.9), noting that Alstom may now seek an alternative deal with Bombardier’s Berlin-based transportation division..
“We believe there is a higher chance for anti-trust approval than the Siemens/Alstom tie-up due to lower European market share in high speed rail and signaling,” Berenberg said in a note to clients. Bombardier aims to turn its transportation unit, the company’s largest division by revenues, into a $10 billion business by 2020, even as it sheds money-losing plane programs. Sources, including French officials, who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity to discuss the sensitive matter, agreed that a potential Alstom-Bombardier merger would likely face less resistance from regulators, but one noted that such a deal could require divestitures in France.
Still, a potential Alstom-Bombardier merger would have less strategic value than a tie-up with Siemens, which is strong in higher-margin signaling assets, the sources said, Bombardier, which wants to grow its signaling business, is strong in lower-margin rolling stock, with “Alstom a bit in between,” the French officials added, “If you merge Alstom with Bombardier, you miami marlins game used baseball cufflinks end up with a lot of ‘iron’ put together” one of the officials said, Bombardier, which held its own failed merger talks with Siemens in 2017, would not specifically discuss future prospects or say how the collapse of the Alstom-Siemens tie-up impacts the company..
“We will keep looking at opportunities to create the best value for our shareholders,” Bombardier said in a statement. An Alstom spokesman said any future rail consolidation in Europe would be examined in light of the failed Siemens-Alstom tie-up. “If the rules do not change, it is difficult to imagine the consolidation of our sector in Europe.”. Alstom stock in Paris was up 4 percent at 2:32 p.m. EST (1932 GMT) after hitting its highest since Dec. 18, while Siemens shares in Frankfurt were down 0.96 percent. Bombardier shares rose more than 7 percent in early afternoon trading in Toronto.
BERLIN/BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Germany will seek to reform competition law during its European Union presidency in 2020, a government source told Reuters on Wednesday, hours after antitrust regulators blocked a rail deal between Siemens and Alstom, The European Commission said the deal would have hurt miami marlins game used baseball cufflinks competition and led to higher prices for consumers, dismissing the companies’ argument that it would help them better compete against Chinese rival CRRC, Following the EU veto, German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier said that Europe should look at changing its rules to facilitate cross-border mergers and create European champions which can compete with rivals from China and the United States..
Altmaier launched a committee of antitrust experts last year to modernize German and European competition law with the goal of safeguarding Germany’s competitiveness. The committee has identified several themes to look into such as whether antitrust laws need to be amended to enable internationally competitive digital companies. But the moves have concerned some and fears of being left behind China and the United States with their different antitrust frameworks should not drive the debate in Europe, Peter Alexiadis, a partner at Gibson Dunn said.
“The EU is a thought leader in antitrust, and has been for a number of years, There is no reason why it should not continue to do so, especially in combination with international fora such as the OECD, In a global marketplace, unilateralism will get us nowhere in the field of antitrust,” he said, Still, there is room for updating the rules, he said, “We probably need to move away from the straightjacket of concerns about short term price rises and develop our views about an idea of consumer welfare that is miami marlins game used baseball cufflinks more dynamic and more consistent with important emerging public policy values common across all EU Member State political cultures,” Alexiadis said..
