Bombardier Refutes Claims by Deutsche Bahn

Bombardier Refutes Claims by Deutsche Bahn 
BERLIN, GERMANY -- (Marketwire) -- 03/04/13 -- Bombardier
Transportation publicly refutes the claims of Deutsche Bahn regarding
the S-Bahn Berlin 481 series as without merit and the allegations as
defamatory. Bombardier reserves all its rights with regard to these
defamatory accusations. 
General warranty for the S-Bahn Berlin 481 series ended in 2007 by
mutual agreement. Up to that time, availability had regularly
exceeded 98% - a strong performance compared to similar rail systems
in Europe. From the start, S-Bahn Berlin has been responsible for its
own maintenance. Bombardier Transportation has no contractual
obligations regarding the maintenance and repair of the 481 series. 
Bombardier Transportation believes that prolonged litigation is not
in the interests of either company and remains open to dialogue with
Deutsche Bahn.
