In July 2018, shareholders of Alstom SA approved the proposed combination of Alstom with Siemens’ mobility business, including its rail traction drive business which is part of the
Division Process Industries and Drives. Closing of the transaction is subject to approval by antitrust authorities and is expected in the first half of calendar 2019.
Regarding Siemens AG financial results, in Q3 FY 2018, orders climbed 16% to EUR 22.8 billion driven by a higher volume from large orders, while revenue came in at EUR 20.5 billion, 4% lower than the prior-year quarter due primarily to currency translation effects.
“Our global team delivered a strong quarter, highlighted by outstanding order intake, outperforming the market. We diligently address our opportunities and challenges going forward,”said Joe Kaeser, President of Siemens AG.
