GE Chief Immelt Sees Room for More Acquisitions, FAZ Reports
General Electric Co. (GE) Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Immelt said the U.S. company always has “room for acquisitions” and is eyeing candidates that could cost $3 billion each, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reported today, citing an interview.
GE raised its forecast for the industrial businesses and now sees full-year revenue rising about 15 percent to $110 billion, the German newspaper said, citing the interview, which was sent via e-mail.
A GE spokeswoman, Deirdre Latour, told Bloomberg News later in a telephone interview that the Fairfield, Connecticut-based company hasn’t changed its forecast for this year. Revenue at the industrial units may increase 5 percent to 10 percent in 2012, GE said in December.
