General Electric (GE; Boston, MA, USA) plans to pursue a tax-free spin-off of GE Healthcare, creating a pure-play company at the center of precision health in early 2023.

The spin-off of GE Healthcare is a part of GE’s plan to form three industry-leading, global public companies focused on the growth sectors of aviation, healthcare, and energy. GE will combine GE Renewable Energy, GE Power, and GE Digital into one business that will be positioned to lead the energy transition, and then pursue a tax-free spin-off of this business in early 2024. Following these transactions, GE will be an aviation-focused company shaping the future of flight. As independently run companies, the businesses will be better-positioned to deliver long-term growth and create value for customers, investors, and employees.

“By creating three industry-leading, global public companies, each can benefit from greater focus, tailored capital allocation, and strategic flexibility to drive long-term growth and value for customers, investors, and employees. We are putting our technology expertise, leadership, and global reach to work to better serve our customers,” said GE Chairman and CEO H. Lawrence Culp, Jr. “Today is a defining moment for GE, and we are ready. Our teams have done exceptional work strengthening our financial position and operating performance, all while deepening our culture of continuous improvement and lean. And we’re not finished - we remain focused on continuing to reduce debt, improve our operational performance, and strategically deploy capital to drive sustainable, profitable growth. We have a responsibility to move with speed to shape the future of flight, deliver precision health, and lead the energy transition. The momentum we have built puts us in a position of strength to take this exciting next step in GE’s transformation and realize the full potential of each of our businesses.”
