GE Announces Closing of Offering of $8.25 Billion Senior Notes issued by GE HealthCare

11/22/2022 | 04:32pm EST

General Electric Company (“GE”) (NYSE: GE) announced today that GE Healthcare Holding LLC (“GE HealthCare”), a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of GE, has closed its previously announced offering of $1,000,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 5.550% senior notes due 2024 (the “2024 notes”), $1,500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 5.600% senior notes due 2025 (the “2025 notes”) and $1,750,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 5.650% senior notes due 2027 (the “2027 notes” and, together with the 2024 notes and the 2025 notes, the “New Money Notes”), $1,250,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 5.857% senior notes due 2030 (the “2030 notes”), $1,750,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 5.905% senior notes due 2032 (the “2032 notes”), and $1,000,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 6.377% senior notes due 2052 (the “2052 notes” and, together with the 2030 notes and the 2032 notes, the “SpinCo Debt Securities” and, together with the New Money Notes, the “Notes”).

The Notes were offered as part of the financing for the proposed spin-off of GE HealthCare from GE (the “Spin-Off”), which is expected to be completed in the first week of January 2023. GE HealthCare has distributed the net proceeds from the offering of the New Money Notes to GE. The SpinCo Debt Securities were initially issued by GE HealthCare to GE and were transferred and delivered by GE to BofA Securities, Inc. and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, as selling noteholders in the offering, in satisfaction of certain debt obligations of GE in connection with the Spin-Off. GE HealthCare will not receive any proceeds from the offering of the SpinCo Debt Securities.

The Notes are senior unsecured obligations of GE HealthCare and are guaranteed by GE until the consummation of the Spin-Off. Upon consummation of the Spin-Off, GE will be automatically and unconditionally released from all obligations under its guarantees. GE HealthCare expects to convert into a corporation and be renamed GE HealthCare Technologies Inc. prior to the completion of the Spin-Off.

The issuances of the Notes by GE HealthCare and the guarantees by GE have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or under any U.S. state securities laws or other jurisdiction and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. The Notes are being offered only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers in accordance with Rule 144A under the Securities Act, and outside the United States to non-U.S. persons in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act. GE HealthCare has agreed to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission an exchange registration statement with respect to an exchange offer for the Notes or a shelf registration statement for the resale of the Notes.

This press release is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any of these securities, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
