06:07 EDTGEGeneral Electric comments on Trian investment
GE issued the following statement from GE Chairman and CEO Jeff Immelt regarding Trian Fund Management L.P.'s $2.5B investment in GE stock, which makes Trian one of GE's largest shareholders: "We welcome Trian's significant investment in the company. GE maintains an open dialogue with our shareholders and enjoys productive, collaborative relationships with them. I have known Trian Principals Nelson Peltz and Ed Garden for many years. Trian has a strong track record of working with companies to build long-term shareholder value, and has been an engaged shareholder. We appreciate their perspectives and look forward to a constructive ongoing dialogue with Trian as we execute our strategy to reshape the company. GE is focused on improving margins and returns, reducing costs and the size of corporate, returning capital to shareholders and realigning our portfolio, most recently with the announced exit of most of GE Capital. Significantly, we have a plan to return more than $90 billion to investors through 2018 and are on track to complete our goal of closing $100 billion of GE Capital asset sales in 2015. We are transforming GE into a focused infrastructure and technology company, leading the intersection of the physical and analytical worlds. Our businesses are performing well in a volatile environment. In the second-quarter earnings announcement, GE raised its full-year Industrial operating earnings per share guidance to $1.13-1.20 and is on track for that goal. We are confident our strategy will further enhance shareholder value and continue to position GE for long-term growth and success."

18:21 EDTGEGeneral Electric confirms sale of railcar services to Wells Fargo
General Electric (GE) confirmed that it has reached separate agreements to sell its tank car fleet assets and railcar repair facilities to Marmon Holdings and its remaining railcar leasing business, General Electric Railcar Services to Wells Fargo (WFC). Terms of the transactions are not being disclosed. "We expect to be substantially done with our exit strategy [to sell most of the assets of GE Capital] by the end of 2016," noted GE Capital chairman and CEO Keith Sherin. "GE and its board of directors have determined that market conditions are favorable to pursue disposition of these assets. GE Capital will retain the financing 'verticals' that relate to GE's industrial businesses," the company noted. The sale of the tank car assets is effective immediately and closed Wednesday. The sale of the railcar repair facilities is expected to close in Q4. The sale of the remaining railcar leasing business is expected to close by the end of 1Q16. When completed, the rail transactions, which represent about $4B of ending net investment, will contribute approximately $1.3B of capital to the overall target of approximately $35B of dividends expected to GE under this plan. The company also noted that the completion of the sale of GE's European fleet businesses to Arval, a fully owned subsidiary of BNP Paribas (BNPQY), is expected to close in Q4.
