Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers

On December 9, 2022, the Board of Directors (the “GE Board”) of General Electric Company (“GE”) and GE directors Risa Lavizzo-Mourey and Tomislav Mihaljevic agreed that Dr. Lavizzo-Mourey and Dr. Mihaljevic would resign from the GE Board effective January 3, 2023, in connection with GE’s planned spin-off of its healthcare business, GE HealthCare Holding LLC (“GE HealthCare”), after market close that day.

As previously announced, Dr. Lavizzo-Mourey and Dr. Mihaljevic will join the GE HealthCare board of directors upon completion of the spin-off. Current GE directors H. Lawrence Culp, Jr. and Catherine Lesjak, who are also joining the GE HealthCare board of directors, will remain on the GE Board as well.

Forward-looking statements.

This document contains “forward-looking statements”—that is, statements related to future, not past, events. These forward-looking statements often address GE’s expected future business and financial performance and financial condition, and often contain words such as “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “seek,” “see,” “will,” “would,” “estimate,” “forecast,” “target,” “preliminary,” or “range.” Forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that are, to different degrees, uncertain, and are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions. For GE, particular areas where risks or uncertainties could cause GE’s actual results to be materially different than those expressed in GE’s forward-looking statements include: GE’s success in executing and completing asset dispositions or other transactions, including GE’s plans to pursue the GE HealthCare spin-off and the spin-off its portfolio of energy businesses that are planned to be combined as GE Vernova (Renewable Energy, Power, Digital and Energy Financial Services), and sales or other dispositions of GE’s equity interests in Baker Hughes Company and AerCap Holdings N.V. and GE’s expected equity interest in GE Healthcare after its spin-off, the timing for such transactions, the ability to satisfy any applicable pre-conditions, and the expected proceeds, consideration and benefits to GE; changes in macroeconomic and market conditions and market volatility, including impacts related to the COVID-19 pandemic, risk of recession, inflation, supply chain constraints or disruptions, rising interest rates, oil, natural gas and other commodity prices and exchange rates, and the impact of such changes and volatility on GE’s business operations, financial results and financial position; and GE’s de-leveraging and capital allocation plans, including with respect to actions to reduce its indebtedness, the capital structures of the three public companies that GE plans to form from its businesses, the timing and amount of dividends, share repurchases, organic investments, and other priorities; and other factors that are described in the “Risk Factors” section of GE’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 and its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2022, as such descriptions may be updated or amended in any future reports that GE files with the SEC. These or other uncertainties may cause GE’s actual future results to be materially different than those expressed in its forward-looking statements. GE does not undertake to update its forward-looking statements.
