GE Capital Aviation Services, the aircraft leasing unit of GE, announced the signing of an agreement to acquire Milestone Aviation Group, the Dublin-based helicopter lessor, for $1.775B. The acquisition is in line with GE Capitalís strategic plan of growing and enhancing value in core areas aligned with GEís industrial domains including energy, aviation, oil & gas and healthcare, while reducing the overall size of GE Capital through the disposition of non-strategic assets such as the recently executed IPO and planned split-off of our North American Retail Finance business and the sale of our consumer banks in the Nordics. The transaction remains subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals, and is targeted to close in 2015. Richard T. Santulli, chairman and CEO, Milestone Aviation Group, will serve as chairman of the helicopter leasing business and will become an officer of GE.
