    Order book off a cliff in Cat France

    1) Le 13 février dernier, Caterpillar France a annoncé que ses commandes avaient chuté de 55% des commandes entre 2008 et le prévisionnel 2009.

    On 13th Feb. Cat France announced that their order book had slumped by 55% between 2008 and expectations for 2009 (?).

    To be frank, It's not very clear what they mean, as they mix order book and revenues but I suspect that they mean sales down by 55% for FY2009(e).

    2) The order book down by 80% is the number quoted by Sarkozy on the radio this morning -as CAT France's management and the trade unions negotiate the redundancy pay-offs.
