Finmeccanica says will not incorporate loss-making unit

MILAN (Reuters) - Italian aerospace and defense group Finmeccanica said on Wednesday it will not incorporate its train-making AnsaldoBreda unit, denying media reports following the appointment of a new chief executive.

The company put the loss-making AnsaldoBreda and its stake in rail technology company Ansaldo STS up for sale more than two years ago, aiming to cut debt.

Political interference and a series of corruption scandals have delayed the process, triggering a downgrade to junk of the company 3.3 billion euro ($4.5 billion) debt pile.

In April the Italian government appointed Mauro Moretti, former head at state railways Ferrovie dello Stato, as chief executive in place of Alessandro Pansa.
