  • GE to exit health care and oil services businesses

General Electric Co said on Tuesday it will spin off its healthcare business and divest its stake in oil-services firm Baker Hughes, effectively breaking up the 126-year-old conglomerate which was once the most valuable USA corporation and a global symbol of American business power.

Following a strategic review of its business, GE said it plans to focus on aviation, power, and renewable energy, "creating a simpler, stronger, leading high-tech industrial company".

Indeed, in addition to separating out its healthcare unit, GE also will be giving up its stake in the oil services company Baker Hughes. That's a significant piece of the company's plan to reduce its net debt by $25 billion. A media release issued by GE says that its healthcare business is to become a standalone company.

Flannery said putting GE Healthcare and Baker Hughes outside its current structure will benefit all parties. "We are aggressively driving forward as an aviation, power, and renewable energy company-three highly complementary businesses poised for future growth". Refocusing the conglomerate will make GE "simpler and stronger", Flannery said in a statement. Its Oilfield Services segment offers drilling, wireline, evaluation, completion, production, and intervention services; and drilling and completions fluids, completions tools and systems, wellbore intervention tools and services, artificial lift systems, pressure pumping systems, and oilfield and industrial chemicals for integrated oil and natural gas, and oilfield service companies for onshore and offshore operations. While that makes GE Healthcare a big business in its own right, the unit's leaders think the organization will be nimbler once freed from the broader GE structure. All told, GE expects to deliver another $500m of corporate savings by 2020 as it moves towards a "much smaller" corporate headquarters in Boston. Eight analysts have provided estimates for Baker Hughes, a GE's earnings, with estimates ranging from $5.50 billion to $5.62 billion. Finally, Van ECK Associates Corp raised its position in shares of Baker Hughes A GE by 15.2% in the first quarter.

Most resources and services usually controlled at the headquarters level will be realigned to the businesses, GE said. S&P Global Ratings placed the company on credit watch negative for a possible downgrade. LPL Financial LLC now owns 16,467 shares of the company's stock worth $521,000 after acquiring an additional 2,084 shares during the last quarter. Now the ROI of Baker Hughes, a GE company (NYSE:BHGE) is -0.7% while the ROI of Crown Castle International Corporation (NYSE:CCI) is 3.6%.

Baker Hughes, a GE company provides integrated oilfield products, services, and digital solutions worldwide.

GE will sell approximately 20 per cent of the health care business straight away and distribute the rest to its shareholders over the next 12 to 18 months as the company sheds those assets. "GE Healthcare's vision is to drive more individualized, precise and effective patient outcomes". Insurance liabilities stood at $38 billion at the end of 2017, according to GE's annual report, though it is unclear how such a deal would be structured or valued, bankers said. GE Healthcare's new board of directors plans to determine its dividend policy once the spinoff is complete.

Those transactions will only generate between $1 billion and $3 billion each, people familiar with the businesses said. A lot of CEOs say there are no sacred cows; not all of them mean it.

The company also announced that it has agreed to sell its Distributed Power business to Advent International, private equity investor, for USD3.25 billion.
