Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

On April 2, 2024, General Electric Company completed the previously announced separation (the “Separation”) 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 (the “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.” After the distribution, the Company no longer consolidates GE Vernova into its financial results.

In connection with the Separation, the historical results of GE Vernova and certain assets and liabilities included in the Separation will be reported in GE's consolidated financial statements as discontinued operations beginning in the second quarter of 2024.

In this Form 8-K, the Company is providing preliminary unaudited supplemental financial information to reflect the reclassification of its Vernova business in discontinued operations for all periods of 2023 presented in Exhibit 99.1. This informational Form 8-K in no way revises or restates the previously filed Consolidated Statement of Financial Position, Consolidated Statements of Earnings, Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows or Non-GAAP Financial Measures for the Company for any period presented.

The information provided pursuant to this Item 7.01, including Exhibit 99.1, is being furnished and shall not be deemed "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act") or otherwise subject to the liabilities under that Section and shall not be deemed to be incorporated by reference into any filing of the Company under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Exchange Act.

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.
