Alstom order intake rose to €5.5 billion in third quarter

Over the third quarter 2010-11, Alstom registered its best level of order intake since the first quarter of 2009-10 on a comparable perimeter. With €5.5 billion, the orders booked during the period were supported by the strong demand in emerging markets which represented 60 per cent of the total contracts registered. With orders above €2.8 billion and €1.6 billion respectively, power and transport sectors recorded marked increases over the recent quarters, while grid booked again a solid €1 billion of orders. With sales at €5.2 billion for the third quarter 2010/11, the group achieved a book-to-bill ratio exceeding 1 for the first time over the last two years.

During the first nine months of 2010-11, including €2.4 billion in grid, Alstom recorded order intake of €12.5 billion, a 10 per cent increase compared to the same period of last year. The group's sales reached €15.7 billion, with €2.7 billion from grid, up by 9 per cent compared to the first nine months of 2009-10. Excluding Grid, the Group's order intake and sales amounted to €10.1 billion and €13 billion respectively, a decrease of around 10 per cent compared to the first nine months of 2009-10.
