BOSTON — October 24, 2023 — GE (NYSE:GE) announced results today for the third quarter ending September 30, 2023.

GE Chairman and CEO and GE Aerospace CEO H. Lawrence Culp, Jr. said, "GE delivered another quarter of very strong results with double-digit growth in revenue, profit, and cash. At GE Aerospace, we continue to experience rapid growth driven by robust demand and solid execution, largely in Commercial Engines and Services. At GE Vernova, our Grid and now Onshore Wind businesses were both profitable this quarter and we expect their performance to continue to improve. With our two largest Renewable Energy businesses delivering and Power's continued strength, we remain highly confident in GE Vernova's spin-off next year."

Culp concluded, "Based on our year-to-date results and continued momentum in the fourth quarter, GE is raising full-year 2023 guidance. We're well-positioned to launch GE Aerospace and GE Vernova as independent companies in the beginning of the second quarter. I'm more excited than ever about our path ahead."

GE Aerospace and GE Vernova continued to take recent action on their priorities:

GE Aerospace
Delivered double-digit growth in orders, revenue, and operating profit driven by commercial momentum and strength in services. Orders grew 34% and revenue was up 25%, led by Commercial Engines and Services with Defense revenue up 8%, led by services and Edison Works.
Announced the U.S Army’s acceptance of the first two GE Aerospace T901 flight test engines that will power the Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft prototypes. The T901 will also upgrade the U.S. Army's Apache and Black Hawk helicopters, providing 50% more power, reduced lifecycle costs, and lower fuel consumption.
Named executive leadership team members, including Tara DiJulio as Chief Corporate Affairs Officer, Christian Meisner as Chief Human Resources Officer, Jake Phillips as General Counsel, and Rob Giglietti as Treasurer.

GE Vernova1
Drove strong revenue and operating profit growth in Renewable Energy and Power. Renewable Energy revenue grew 14% organically* with double-digit equipment growth in Grid, North America Onshore Wind, and Offshore Wind. Power also grew with revenue up 9% organically*.
Accumulated more than two million commercial operating hours for the advanced H-Class, heavy-duty gas turbine fleet, supporting HA services billings growing to $1 billion by mid-2020s; this fleet now has an installed capacity of over 47 gigawatts globally, the equivalent of powering over 35 million U.S. homes.
Named Ken Parks as CFO, and Vic Abate to an expanded role as CEO of GE Vernova's Wind businesses.

Total Company Results
We present both GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures to provide investors with additional information. We believe that providing these non-GAAP financial measures along with GAAP measures allows for increased comparability of our ongoing performance from period to period. Please see pages 5-8 for explanations of why we use these non-GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation to the most comparable GAAP financial measures.

In addition, GE:
Announced today that it expects to spin off GE Vernova and launch GE Aerospace in the beginning of the second quarter of 2024, subject to final approval from the GE Board of Directors and other customary conditions. Shares of GE Vernova will be listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “GEV” and shares of GE Aerospace will continue GE's listing on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “GE”.2
Received total proceeds of approximately $2.7 billion in the quarter from the sale of a portion of its AerCap shares. GE continues to expect to fully monetize its remaining stakes in AerCap and GE HealthCare, of approximately 14.5% and 13.5% respectively, in an orderly manner over time.
Redeemed remaining outstanding shares of GE preferred stock in the quarter, for $2.8 billion, further simplifying GE's balance sheet and reducing financing costs.
Repurchased approximately 2.2 million common shares for $0.3 billion in the quarter, with $1.2 billion remaining under the GE Board's prior authorization of common share repurchases of up to $3.0 billion.
Incurred separation costs of $0.2 billion in the quarter, primarily related to employees, establishing standalone functions and IT systems, and professional fees. This was offset by realized tax benefits of $0.3 billion related to the separation of legal entities in preparation for the spin-off.
Completed its annual review of liability cash flow assumptions at its run-off insurance portfolio in the quarter, which resulted in an immaterial impact to net earnings.


* Non-GAAP Financial Measure
2 Following the planned spin-off, in which GE will distribute the common stock of GE Vernova on a pro rata basis to holders of GE common stock, General Electric Company will be known as GE Aerospace. In our current financial reporting and guidance, GE Aerospace refers to our existing reporting segment.

Orders of $9.8 billion increased 34% on a reported and organic basis, with strength in both equipment and services. Revenues of $8.4 billion grew 25% on a reported and organic* basis, led by Commercial Engines and Services, with strong external spare parts growth, and Defense revenue up 8%. Segment margin of 20.4% expanded by 130 basis points on a reported basis and 120 basis points organically*. Services volume and pricing, net of inflation, more than offset increased investments and impact from mix.

Orders of $3.9 billion increased 5% reported and 3% organically, led by Grid and higher equipment at Onshore Wind in North America. Revenues of $4.2 billion increased 15% reported and 14% organically* driven by equipment growth at Grid, Onshore Wind in North America, and Offshore Wind. Segment margin of (7.6)% improved by 1,840 basis points reported and 1,990 basis points organically*, driven by the non-repeat of higher warranty and related reserves in the third quarter of 2022, as well as better pricing and productivity. Notably, both Grid and Onshore Wind were profitable in the quarter.

Orders of $4.3 billion grew 2% reported and contracted (1)% organically with higher heavy duty gas turbines offset by lower Aeroderivative units and a slight decline in services. Revenues of $4.0 billion grew 13% reported and 9% organically*, largely due to price and higher scope on heavy-duty gas turbine and Aeroderivative equipment. Services revenue also grew this quarter. Segment margin of 6.0% expanded 200 basis points reported and organically*, driven by volume, pricing, and productivity, which more than offset inflation pressure.

GENERAL ELECTRIC COMPANY
Financial Measures That Supplement GAAP

We believe that presenting non-GAAP financial measures provides management and investors useful measures to evaluate performance and trends of the total company and its businesses. This includes adjustments in recent periods to GAAP financial measures to increase period-to-period comparability following actions to strengthen our overall financial position and how we manage our business.

In addition, management recognizes that certain non-GAAP terms may be interpreted differently by other companies under different circumstances. In various sections of this report we have made reference to the following non-GAAP financial measures in describing our (1) revenues, specifically organic revenues by segment; organic revenues, (2) profit, specifically organic profit and profit margin by segment; Adjusted profit and profit margin; Adjusted organic profit and profit margin; Adjusted earnings (loss) and Adjusted earnings (loss) per share (EPS), (3) cash flows, specifically free cash flows (FCF), and (4) guidance, specifically 2023 Adjusted EPS and 2023 FCF.

The reasons we use these non-GAAP financial measures and the reconciliations to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures follow. Certain columns, rows or percentages within these reconciliations may not add or recalculate due to the use of rounded numbers. Totals and percentages presented are calculated from the underlying numbers in millions.

(a) Includes tax benefits available to offset the tax on gains (losses) on equity securities.
(b) Includes related tax valuation allowances.
Earnings-per-share amounts are computed independently. As a result, the sum of per-share amounts may not equal the total.
The service cost for our pension and other benefit plans are included in Adjusted earnings*, which represents the ongoing cost of providing pension benefits to our employees. The components of non-operating benefit costs are mainly driven by capital allocation decisions and market performance. We believe the retained cost in Adjusted earnings* provides management and investors a useful measure to evaluate the performance of the total company and increases period-to-period comparability. We also use Adjusted EPS* as a performance metric at the company level for our annual executive incentive plan for 2023.

We believe investors may find it useful to compare free cash flows* performance without the effects of CFOA related to our run-off Insurance business, separation cash expenditures, Corporate restructuring cash expenditures (associated with the separation-related program announced in October 2022) and taxes related to business sales. We believe this measure will better allow management and investors to evaluate the capacity of our operations to generate free cash flows.

2023 GUIDANCE: 2023 ADJUSTED EPS (NON-GAAP)
We cannot provide a reconciliation of the differences between the non-GAAP expectations and corresponding GAAP measure for Adjusted EPS* in 2023 without unreasonable effort due to the uncertainty of timing of any gains or losses related to acquisitions & dispositions, the timing and magnitude of the financial impact related to the mark-to-market of our remaining investment in GE HealthCare and AerCap, and the timing and magnitude of restructuring expenses. Although we have attempted to estimate the amount of gains and restructuring charges for the purpose of explaining the probable significance of these components, this calculation involves a number of unknown variables, resulting in a GAAP range that we believe is too large and variable to be meaningful.

2023 GUIDANCE: 2023 FCF (NON-GAAP)
We cannot provide a reconciliation of the differences between the non-GAAP expectations and corresponding GAAP measure for free cash flows* in 2023 without unreasonable effort due to the uncertainty of timing of taxes related to business sales.
