MONTREAL, QC--(Marketwired - Jul 23, 2014) - Today, Bombardier Inc.
(TSX:BBD.A)(TSX:BBD.B)(OTCQX:BDRBF) announced the implementation of a new
organizational structure, comprised of four business segments:

  * Bombardier Transportation
  * Bombardier Business Aircraft
  * Bombardier Commercial Aircraft
  * Bombardier Aerostructures and Engineering Services
Effective immediately, all four business segments will report directly to Pierre
Beaudoin, President and Chief Executive Officer, Bombardier Inc. The heads of
the business segments remain Lutz Bertling at Transportation, Eric Martel at
Business Aircraft and Mike Arcamone at Commercial Aircraft. The head of the new
Aerostructures and Engineering Services business segment will be appointed in
the next few weeks. Bombardier Aerospace group functions and the Customer
Services division will be absorbed into the three aerospace business segments,
generating reductions in cost and overhead.

"This marks another step in Bombardier's evolution," said Pierre Beaudoin.
"Combined with the implementation of OneBT, the recent Bombardier Transportation
reorganization, the new Aerospace organizational structure will enable us to be
more agile and flexible in addressing customer needs, while increasing our focus
on growth areas. The creation of the Aerostructures and Engineering Services
business segment will also help us market our expertise in this field to the
aerospace industry, thus generating new revenues. We are setting the stage to
take full advantage of our investments and the tremendous growth potential of
our new products."

The new Aerostructures and Engineering Services business segment will specialize
in the design and development of complex advanced composite and metallic
aerostructures in all classes of civil aircraft and all categories of structure,
including fuselages, wings and engine nacelles.

As a result of this reorganization, Bombardier Aerospace President and Chief
Operating Officer, Guy Hachey, is retiring. "Guy led Bombardier Aerospace during
an important period in its history. I wish to thank him for his contributions
over the past six years," said Mr. Beaudoin.

A detailed implementation plan will be developed over the next few months, and
the new structure will be in place January 1, 2015.
