EU okays with conditions Alstom's buy of Bombardier's rail business

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – EU antitrust regulators approved on Friday Alstom’s (ALSO.PA) bid for Bombardier Inc’s (BBDb.TO) rail business after the French TGV high-speed train maker agreed to sell assets to address competition concerns.

Reuters reported on July 27 that the concessions would help Alstom clinched EU clearance for a deal that would make it the world’s second largest rail maker behind Chinese rival CRRC Corp (601766.SS).
