Dear Valued Client,
Greetings from INGOT Brokers.
Why GE is doing
Will This Reverse Stock Split Be a Rare Winner?
CFO Carolina Dybeck Happe tried to explain the reason for the reverse split. She noted that although GE has divested several of its major business units in recent years, in particular the GE Capital financial unit, it hasn't made any corresponding adjustments to its outstanding share count. The result is a share base that inappropriately reflects the enterprise's former size rather than its more compact current configuration. After the split, GE will have just 1.1 billion shares outstanding, with a stock price that should come in just over $100 per share based on where shares closed on Monday.
