As previously mentioned, "announcing a future" IPO has more to do with getting the interested parties to come forward with a higher valuation to anyone who is contemplating to partner with Bombardier Transport. The "Else we do an IPO" is part of the normal negotiation dance steps I would say. One of those steps was the rumours of interesting parties from China… Now the "potential" IPO of Bombardier Transport, a WakeUp Call for some...
What at the end? I see a company playing a chess game rather well. At the same time it is going toward increasing its market value (share price) by potentially crystalizing a concrete value of its Transport division by being listed on a public stock exchange, it is also getting strategically prepared to grow its Train/Transportation business (China competition), and it seems to me, it is also building a "cash/war" chest, among other things...
Remember the saying, "divided we fall, together we stand"… mix this with "L'audace, l'audace, toujours l'audace" and you start to see Alain Bellemare's results.
Very Exciting Times at Bombardier Inc.
