Alstom and the Fonds Stratégique d'Investissement (FSI)
announced on 10 April that they had decided to study the
acquisition of Translohr, a division of Lohr Industrie
specialised in rubber-tyred trams.
Following an in-depth analysis ("due diligence"), the
commercial and financial situation of Translohr appeared
much more difficult than described by the owner.
Alstom and the FSI have nonetheless confirmed their
intention to acquire Translohr. They made a firm offer
that, if accepted, would ensure the sustainability of its
activity in Alsace, maintain employment, allow the
execution of on-going public transport projects and develop
its technology. It would be accompanied by the investments
requested to safeguard its future. Finally, it would allow
Lohr Industrie to pursue its own business. Alstom and the
FSI hope that this offer will be accepted quickly.
