FRANKFURT (Reuters) -Siemens Energy on Tuesday said it would reduce management posts by about a third and provide investors with more detail of its business in a bid to become more transparent and nimble. The company, which on Saturday announced a 4.05 billion-euro ($4.32 billion) bid for the remaining stake in wind turbine unit Siemens Gamesa, said no layoffs were planned as part of the move. Siemens Energy said that it would split its gas and power segment into three business areas - gas services, grid technologies and transformation of industry - to let investors better track development of those individual units.
