GE Announces the Applicable Reference Yield for its Debt Tender Offer

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–GE (NYSE:GE) today announced the applicable “Reference Yield” for each series of Securities (as defined below) for its previously announced offer to purchase for cash, for its own account and on behalf of the Subsidiary Issuers (as defined below), upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, dated November 8, 2022 (as amended or supplemented from time to time, the “Offer to Purchase”) for cash up to $7,000,000,000 (as converted on the basis set forth herein) (excluding the accrued and unpaid interest on such Securities) aggregate purchase price (the “Total Maximum Amount”) of the securities listed in the table below (such securities, the “Securities” and, such offer to purchase, the “Tender Offer”), issued by GE or an affiliate (and assumed or guaranteed by GE). Given the aggregate principal amount of the Securities validly tendered in the Tender Offer prior to the Early Participation Date, GE expects the aggregate purchase price of such Securities to exceed the Total Maximum Amount.

The “Expiration Date” for the Tender Offer is 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on December 7, 2022, unless extended or earlier terminated by GE. Consummation of the Tender Offer is subject to certain conditions (as described in the Offer to Purchase).

Holders who validly tendered and did not validly withdraw such Securities at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on November 22, 2022 (the “Early Participation Date”), once such Securities are accepted for purchase, will be eligible to receive the applicable “Total Consideration” for their Securities, which includes an early participation amount of $50 per $1,000 principal amount of the Securities denominated in U.S. dollars, £50 per £1,000 principal amount of the Securities denominated in Pounds Sterling, or €50 per €1,000 principal amount of the Securities denominated in Euros, as applicable (the “Early Participation Amount”). In addition, holders whose Securities are accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on the Securities from, and including, the most recent interest payment date prior to the applicable Payment Date (as defined below) up to, but not including, the applicable Payment Date (“Accrued Interest”). See the Offer to Purchase for additional information.

The “Total Consideration” payable for each series of Fixed Spread Securities (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) will be calculated by reference to the applicable “Reference Yield” in the table above, which means (i) for each series of Fixed Spread Dollar Securities and Fixed Spread Sterling Securities (each, as defined in the Offer to Purchase), a yield to the applicable maturity date of such series of Securities equal to the sum (such sum being annualized in the case of the Fixed Spread Sterling Securities) of (a) the Reference Yield of the applicable Reference Security outlined in the table above, determined at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on November 23, 2022 (the “Reference Yield Determination Date”), plus (b) the applicable Fixed Spread (as set forth in the table above), and (ii) for each series of Fixed Spread Euro Securities (as defined in the Offer to Purchase), a yield to the applicable maturity date of such series of Securities equal to the sum of (a) the Reference Yield (corresponding to the applicable Interpolated Rate for such series listed in the table above) determined at the Reference Yield Determination Date, plus (b) the applicable Fixed Spread for such series of Securities; in each case, minus accrued and unpaid interest on such Securities from, and including, the most recent interest payment date prior to the applicable Payment Date up to, but not including, such Payment Date.

The applicable “Total Consideration” payable for each series of Fixed Spread Securities (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) per $1,000, £1,000 or €1,000 principal amount of such series of Fixed Spread Securities included in the Tender Offer will be determined based upon the “Reference Yield” set forth in the table above, upon GE’s acceptance for purchase of any Securities validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) and the announcement of the applicable Payment Date.

The “Total Consideration” payable for each series of Fixed Price Securities (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) will be a price per $1,000, £1,000 or €1,000 principal amount of such series of Fixed Price Securities listed in the table above.

Each Holder participating in the Tender Offer will give certain representations in respect of the jurisdictions referred to above and generally as set out in the Offer to Purchase. Any tender of Securities pursuant to the Tender Offer from a Holder that is unable to make these representations will not be accepted. Each of GE, the Subsidiary Issuers, the Dealer Managers and the Information and Tender Agent reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to investigate, in relation to any tender of Securities pursuant to the Tender Offer, whether any such representation given by a Holder is correct and, if such investigation is undertaken and as a result GE determines (for any reason) that such representation is not correct, such tender shall not be accepted.
