MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Oct 21, 2016) - Bombardier
(TSX:BBD.A)(TSX:BBD.B)(OTCQX:BDRBF) announced today a series of actions as it
continues to execute its five-year turnaround plan launched last year. The
actions support the company's efforts to build its earnings growth potential
and highlight its focus on improving productivity, reducing costs and
optimizing its worldwide footprint to deliver increased value to customers
and shareholders.

"After successfully de-risking our business last year, our focus has shifted
to building a clear path to profitable earnings growth and cash generation.
The actions announced today will ensure we have the right cost structure,
workforce and organization to compete and win in the future," said Alain
Bellemare, President and Chief Executive Officer, Bombardier Inc. "We are
confident in our strategy, our leadership team and our ability to achieve
both our 2016 goals and our 2020 turn-around plan objectives."

Specific actions to be taken by the company include streamlining its
administrative and non-production functions across the organization and
leveraging its worldwide footprint to create centres of excellence for
design, engineering and manufacturing activities in both its aerospace and
rail businesses.

Approximately 7,500 positions will be impacted as the company executes its
workforce optimization and site specialization actions through 2018. The
impact of these restructuring actions on overall employment will be partially
offset by strategic hiring to support the ramp-up for key growth programs,
including the C Series and Global 7000, as well as to support major rail
contract wins.

As a result of the actions announced today, the company expects to achieve
recurring savings of approximately $300 million by the end of 2018. The
company anticipates recording $225 million to $275 million in restructuring
charges that will be reported as special items when accrued, starting in the
fourth quarter of 2016 and continuing through 2017.

"When we launched our turnaround plan last year we committed to transforming
our company; to reduce costs, to leverage our scale and to become more
efficient in all our operations, and that is exactly what we are doing," said
Bellemare. "While restructuring is always difficult, the actions announced
today are necessary to ensure Bombardier's long-term competitiveness and
position the company to continue to invest in its industry leading portfolio
while also deleveraging its balance sheet."
