Bombardier Recovers Stolen Customer Data

 - May 3, 2007, 11:45 AM

Bombardier Aerospace is “satisfied” that confidential customer data has not been compromised, following the discovery by Canadian authorities of company documents in the home of former senior director of structured finance Simon Davies. In an unusual move, the Quebec Supreme Court signed an Anton Peller court order, which allowed authorities to search Davies’ home and seize evidence without prior notice. Documents discovered in his home included data about Bombardier’s customers, company financial and financing data, sales negotiations and payment schedules on all aircraft until 2012. In a statement released May 2 by Bombardier, company officials stated, “Based on that court order and a subsequent review of documents and transmissions, Bombardier is satisfied that its confidential information is protected.”
