The largest restructuring of General Electric will be driven by Jeffrey Immelt that will emphasize the acquisition which includes jet engines for locomotives and various devices for equipment used in various processes in an oil field. Immelt has insisted that he will spend $ 5 billion to repair and expand manufacturing capacity. Step capital investment is expected to be spent during the first year. General Electric seeks to rebuild its financial strength with the purchase of shares of $ 26.5 billion. According to Immelt on Friday, this step is the right step in the rebuilding of the GE portfolio. In the future, GE will focus on oil and gas and aviation. Besides the two fields, GE will also focus on the health of the world where it does cover the oil industry and flight industry.
According to Immelt, GE’s decision will arouse which had slumped during the financial crisis of 2007-2008. These measures will be tailored to the various rules set by federal regulators. According to Keith Sherin, chief executive of GE Capital, there will be one to two transactions in the public market during the next 18 months without explaining the details of the transaction. Basically, Immelt attempted reemphasizing that GE’s industrial operations changed back to the traditional pattern as in the first in the era of Thomas Edison.
To note, GE is a company that is so large that the Financial Stability Oversight Council to call a non-systemic banks in 2013 ago. The result is that GE has been placed under special supervision by the Federal Reserve. Faced with this, GE is not trying to ignore the rules and ultimately the company is trying to harmonize financial measures with the rules of the Federal Reserve. The conclusion confirms that GE’s Immelt to get under the $ 100 billion to end the net investment and does not violate the rules.
