Van Campen Liem congratulates General Electric Company with the separation of its healthcare business, launching GE HealthCare Technologies Inc. (“GE HealthCare”), a global leader in Precision Care. Starting January 4, 2023, GE HealthCare will trade on Nasdaq under the ticker symbol “GEHC”. GE HealthCare launches with a presence in more than 160 countries and approximately 51,000 employees worldwide serving more than one billion patients a year. The company invests more than $1 billion in R&D annually and generates approximately $18 billion in revenue, with an installed base including more than 4 million pieces of equipment across its four business segments – Imaging, Ultrasound, Patient Care Solutions, and Pharmaceutical Diagnostics. The spinoff of GE HealthCare was achieved by GE’s pro rata distribution of approximately 80.1% of the outstanding shares of GE HealthCare to GE shareholders. GE retained approximately 19.9% of the outstanding shares of GE HealthCare common stock.
Van Campen Liem has assisted General Electric Company as Dutch legal counsel in connection with the above separation. The Van Campen Liem team in Amsterdam that has intensively worked for over half a year on the transaction included Edwin Liem, Anna Zhu, Wouter Casteleijn and Giti Navabi.
