“That is mind-blowing. The comparison is stunning. Two dinosaurs on totally different islands experiencing the same cyclical patterns… who would have thought?” – T. Island, nickname, a Loadstar reader, October 2018.

In a similar manner to which General Electric (GE) is being dismantled following almost two decades of disgraceful mismanagement, AP Møller Mærsk Group (APMM) could be faced with a reality check of epic proportions if its latest revolutionary corporate strategy does not pay off.

Two of the most prominent industrial restructurings ...

        GE Power business outlook declines, leading to shortfall relative to 2018 guidance; Company to take non-cash impairment charge related to GE Power

        Thomas W. Horton appointed as Lead Director

        BOSTON – October 1, 2018 – GE (NYSE: GE) announced today that H. Lawrence Culp, Jr. has been named Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company by a unanimous vote of the GE Board of Directors, effective immediately. Additionally, the GE Board has appointed Thomas W. Horton as Lead Director. Mr. Culp and Mr. Horton have been members of the Board since April 2018. Mr. Culp will succeed John Flannery as Chairman and CEO.

        While GE’s businesses other than Power are generally performing consistently with previous guidance, due to weaker performance in the GE Power business, the Company will fall short of previously indicated guidance for free cash flow and EPS for 2018. In addition, GE expects to take a non-cash goodwill impairment charge related to the GE Power business. GE Power’s current goodwill balance is approximately $23 billion and the goodwill impairment charge is likely to constitute substantially all of this balance. The impairment charge is not yet finalized and remains subject to review. The Company will provide additional commentary when it reports third quarter results.
