GE kicked off 2013 with a large asset sale announcement, agreeing in February to sell its remaining stake in NBCUniversal’s joint venture with Comcast for $18.1 billion. Proceeds from that sale were used to accelerate both share buybacks and the conglomerate’s restructuring plans. In the year ahead, GE is looking to invest. In April, the company made an offer to to buy French firm Alstom’s power and grid businesses for nearly $17 billion — a deal that would, if approved, immediately boost GE’s earnings.
