06:35 EDTBXGE releases financial details of GE Capital assets sale
Approximately $16B of after-tax charges are expected to be recorded in the first quarter of 2015 in connection with the plan – of which about $12B are non-cash. The charges include taxes on repatriated earnings, asset impairments due to shortened hold periods, and charges on businesses held for sale, including goodwill allocation. GE expects that the earnings impact of the GE Capital exits will be offset by the buyback over the exit period. GE has amended its income maintenance agreement to guarantee all tradable senior and subordinated debt securities and all commercial paper issued or guaranteed by GECC. The guarantee will replace the current income maintenance covenant. GE will maintain substantial liquidity and capital through the transition and does not expect to issue incremental GE Capital long-term debt for at least five years. Commercial paper will be further reduced to approximately $5 billion by the end of 2015.
