"There's a lot of capital there that we're gonna be able to put to use to bring down the leverage on the industrial balance sheet," General Electric CEO Larry Culp says.

French firms signed contracts in Kenya worth some 2 billion euros ($2.26 billion) during a visit on Thursday by President Emmanuel Macron, who wants to deepen France's economic ties with Anglophone East Africa. Macron's visit to Nairobi is the first by a French president since Kenya won independence from Britain in 1963 and follows stopovers in Ethiopia and Djibouti - all countries where China has moved in aggressively and presents stiff competition. At a ceremony with Kenyan leader Uhuru Kenyatta, a consortium led by Vinci secured a 30-year concession worth 1.6 billion euros to operate a highway linking the Kenyan capital and Mau Summit in western Kenya.

When General Electric Co. bought Alstom SA’s power business in 2015, it cost it a little more than $10 billion. In effect, it is the $4 that squares up the balance sheet when a company spends $10 for something that will only add $6 to its net worth. In recording goodwill that exceeded the cost of the acquired power business, GE was essentially telling investors that the Alstom assets it bought had a net worth less than zero.
As General Electric Company (NYSE: GE) prepares to provide a critical financial update for its shareholders on Thursday, investors are still trying to figure out exactly how a blue chip company worth $300 billion at the beginning of 2016 could now have a market cap of under $90 billion. WSJ's Michael Rapoport focuses on GE’s accounting treatment of a $10 billion 2015 deal with Alstom SA (OTC: ALSMY) as one example of the dubious way GE was propping up its bottom line right under investors’ noses. GE acquired Alstom’s Power business for $10 billion but then immediately registered $13.5 billion in goodwill on its books upon the deal’s completion.

European Union antitrust rules could be reformed to introduce a two-stage review of mergers that would examine competition issues and then broader public interests, said the head of a German commission tasked with coming up with reforms proposals. Germany and France want to overhaul EU mergers rules following the European Commission's veto of efforts by Siemens and Alstom to create a European rail champion to compete with larger foreign rivals. Achim Wambach, who heads the German commission charged with presenting reform proposals, said a two-stage review of mergers could first look at competition issues and then at broader public interests - such as security issues and the impact on consumers.
Thyssenkrupp downplayed concerns over antitrust scrutiny with regard to its planned joint venture with Tata Steel, saying it could not be compared with a vetoed rail tie-up of Siemens and Alstom. "You cannot put the same label on it at all," Guido Kerkhoff told journalists on Tuesday, adding that the European steel sector had witnessed several large transactions in the past that were approved by regulators after remedies had been offered. The European Commission is expected to send a charge sheet known as a statement of objections to Thyssenkrupp this week, which usually sets out serious competition concerns which companies have to address, sources told Reuters on Monday.
After four decades on the production line at French trainmaker Alstom, Claude Gemino had little sympathy for Emmanuel Macron when Brussels scotched the French president's hopes of creating a European rail champion. For Gemino and many co-workers at Alstom's Belfort factory, Macron's support for the blocked merger with Germany's Siemens signalled a readiness to put shareholders ahead of jobs and protecting France's fragile manufacturing sector.
BRUSSELS (Reuters) - France and Germany will propose changes to the European Union's competition policy after the European Commission, the EU competition watchdog, blocked a merger of the rail units of ...
The merger proposal between the French and the German companies planned to create a European rail champion with revenues of about 15 billion euros ($17 billion). The merger proposal referred only to the companies' transport services and would have combined them into one new firm, solely controlled by Siemens.
TransDigm gets most of its revenue from proprietary aerospace parts, meaning it controls the patents and intellectual property behind the components and is often the sole provider of them. TransDigm’s private equity mentality and capital structure has led to at least 30 publicly disclosed acquisitions over the past decade, the biggest of which was its October agreement to acquire Esterline Technologies Corp. for about $4 billion. Fortive, meanwhile, is aggressively transitioning away from the cyclical, mediocre-growth industrial assets that Danaher Corp. put into the business when it spun it off in 2016.
