Introductory Note

On April 2, 2024 at 12:10 a.m. Eastern Time, General Electric Company completed the previously announced separation (the “Spin-Off”) of GE Vernova Inc. (“GE Vernova”). General Electric Company now operates as GE Aerospace (the “Company”). The Spin-Off of GE Vernova was achieved through the Company’s pro rata distribution of all of the outstanding shares of GE Vernova common stock to holders of record of the Company’s common stock. Each holder of record of the Company’s common stock received one share of GE Vernova common stock for every four shares of the Company’s common stock held on March 19, 2024, the record date for the distribution. In lieu of fractional shares of GE Vernova, shareholders of the Company will receive cash. On April 2, 2024, GE Vernova’s common stock began trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “GEV.”

In this Amendment No. 1 the Company amends the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 2, 2024 (the “Original Form 8-K”) that reported the completion of the Spin-Off. The Original Form 8-K did not include the unaudited pro forma financial information of the Company reflecting the performance of the Company’s businesses after giving effect to the Spin-Off. This Amendment No. 1 to the Original Form 8-K is being filed to include such pro forma financial information as required under Item 9.01(b) of Form 8-K.

The Company no longer consolidates GE Vernova into its financial results. In connection with the Spin-Off, the historical results of GE Vernova and certain assets and liabilities included in the Spin-Off will be reported in the Company's consolidated financial statements as discontinued operations beginning in the second quarter of 2024.

Unaudited pro forma financial information included in this Amendment No. 1 to the Original Form 8-K has been presented to illustrate the estimated effects of the Spin-Off and is not necessarily indicative of the results of operations that the Company would have achieved had the Spin-Off been completed as of the dates indicated or of the results that may be obtained in the future.


Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.

(b) Pro Forma Financial Information.

The following unaudited pro forma financial information of the Company is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this Amendment No. 1 to the Original Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference:

Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Consolidated Statement of Financial Position as of December 31, 2023.
Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings (Loss) for each of the years ended December 31, 2023, 2022 and 2021.
Notes to the Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.


(d) Exhibits.

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 Aerospace’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 Aerospace, particular areas where risks or uncertainties could cause GE Aerospace’s actual results to be materially different than those expressed in GE Aerospace’s forward-looking statements include: changes in macroeconomic and market conditions and market volatility, including risk of recession, inflation, geopolitical conflict; supply chain constraints or disruptions, interest rates, the value of securities and other financial assets (including GE Aerospace’s equity interest in GE HealthCare), commodity prices and exchange rates, and the impact of such changes and volatility on GE Aerospace’s business operations, financial results and financial position; GE Aerospace’s capital allocation plans, including the timing and amount of dividends, share repurchases, acquisitions, organic investments, and other priorities; and other factors that are described in the “Risk Factors” section of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023, as such description may be updated or amended in any future reports that GE Aerospace files with the SEC. These or other uncertainties may cause GE Aerospace’s actual future results to be materially different than those expressed in its forward-looking statements. GE Aerospace does not undertake to update its forward-looking statements.
