BHGE completes share repurchase, renames itself Baker Hughes Company
中国石化新闻网讯 Baker Hughes, a GE company announced today the closing of a secondary offering of 132.25 million shares of BHGE Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share at a price to the public of $21.50 per share. This closing includes the underwriters’ exercise of their option in full, purchasing an additional 17.25 million shares of Class A common stock from the selling stockholders.
BHGE intends to change its corporate name to Baker Hughes Company, known as Baker Hughes. Following the name change, the Class A common stock will trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “BKR.”
As a result of this offering, GE and its affiliates ceased to hold more than 50% of the voting power of all classes of BHGE’s voting stock. Among other things, this reduced the number of individuals who GE is entitled to designate to BHGE’s board of directors from five to one. GE has informed the company that it has selected John G. Rice to remain on the BHGE board of directors as its designee and that Jamie S. Miller and James J. Mulva will submit their resignations to the Conflicts Committee of the company’s board of directors. Lorenzo Simonelli and W. Geoffrey Beattie will continue to serve on the company’s board of directors but not as GE designees.
“Today’s transaction marks an important milestone in our journey, and we have an exciting future ahead built on a strong foundation,” said Lorenzo Simonelli, chairman and CEO of BHGE. “We are a differentiated energy technology company and our unique value proposition positions us well with our customers and in the market.”
