EU antitrust regulators to probe Siemens, Alstom rail merger
EU antitrust regulators opened an in-depth investigation on Friday into a plan by Siemens and Alstom to merge their rail businesses, saying that the deal could reduce competition for trains and signalling systems.
It set a Nov. 21 deadline to decide whether to clear the deal. The companies can offer concessions to address regulatory concerns. Image source: Reuters
