GE is a 126-year old industrial conglomerate with a number of primary business units, including Lighting, Aviation, Healthcare, Power, and Capital. GE’s largest and most important segment is GE Power. The majority of GE Power’s revenue comes from the sale and servicing of its Gas Power Systems, including its H-Class gas turbines that the Company sells to power utilities across the globe. In 2017, GE Power was the leading manufacturer of gas turbines, with more than 50% of global market share.
The Complaint asserts claims for violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, prospects and financial health. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose that: (i) the design and technology of GE Power’s flagship gas turbines were structurally flawed as they were plagued with an oxidation problem that caused the blades in the H-Class gas turbines to fail; (ii) GE Power’s goodwill was materially overstated, in large part because of such structural issues; (iii) the Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls; and (iv) as a result of the foregoing, Defendant’s public statements were materially false and/or misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
