This publication does not announce a credit rating action.

The rail division is Bombardier's largest by revenue.

A British court on Thursday ruled that the British government had acted unlawfully in allowing arms exports to Saudi Arabia that might have been used in the conflict in Yemen. "The decision of the court today does not mean that licenses to export arms to Saudi Arabia must immediately be suspended," he said. The case was brought by the Campaign Against the Arms Trade against the British government.
Japan's Mitsubishi Aircraft Corp rebranded its MRJ family jets to be called the "SpaceJet" and unveiled a redesigned version of the smaller jet to help improve its sales prospects in the large U.S. market. The SpaceJet M100, the revamped version of the MRJ70, will now have up to 76 seats in a typical U.S. cabin configuration rather than the earlier 69 seats, the company said on Thursday, making it a more attractive offering for regional carriers with contracts to major carriers. The larger SpaceJet M90, renamed from MRJ90, is too big for U.S. regional carriers to fly without the relaxation of pilot union rules, an unlikely prospect due to a pilot shortage that has given unions more bargaining power.
Quebec's economy minister said on Monday his government has ruled out investing in Bombardier Inc's weak-selling regional jet program, which could be sold to Japan's Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. Economy Minister Pierre Fitzgibbon said his government is taking steps to protect jobs within the Canadian province's aerospace sector, but he will not invest billions of taxpayer dollars to boost sales of the regional jet program which is assembled near Montreal. The Quebec government previously invested $1 billion for a stake in Bombardier's flagship narrowbody jet program, which is now owned by Europe's Airbus SE.
