Alstom completes interests transfer in three Energy Joint Ventures

Alstom has completed the transfer of all its interests in the three Energy Joint Ventures (Renewables, Grid and Nuclear Joint Ventures) to General Electric and received a total cash payment of EUR 2.594 billion.
The proceeds will be used by Alstom primarily to support the company’s strategic development. In addition, a part of this amount will be used to pay out an extraordinary distribution of up to EUR 4 per share, subject to certain adjustments, to Alstom’s existing shareholders at the close of the business day preceding the date of closing of the transaction with Siemens, expected in the first half of 2019, once all regulatory approvals have been obtained.
Payment of such extraordinary distribution shall be made on the 8th business day following the date of closing of this transaction.
