BERLIN, GERMANY--(Marketwired - Jun 29, 2017) - As part of the global
transformation that Bombardier announced in October 2016, the management and
employee representatives of Bombardier Transportation have agreed on an outline
for the reorientation and safeguarding of the German sites. The cornerstones of
this outline were mutually accepted at today''s Supervisory Board meeting.

This modernisation and specialisation of the sites will involve some personnel
adjustments. Based on current assumptions and depending on market development
and order intake, manpower adjustments of up to 2,200 positions, of which 700
temporary positions, will be made gradually until 2020.

In connection with those organizational changes, Bombardier will record
restructuring charges, to be reported as special items, which are included in
the previously disclosed restructuring charges anticipated for 2017.
