Wabtec Corporation Stock Distribution
Transaction Summary

On February 25th, 2019, GE completed the spin-off and subsequent merger of its transportation business with Wabtec Corporation (NYSE:WAB).

Under the terms of the transaction, GE distributed all 8.7 billion shares of common stock of Transportation Systems Holdings Inc. (“SpinCo”) with respect to the shares of GE common stock outstanding as of the close of business on February 14, 2019 by means of a pro rata distribution (the “Spin-off”), and SpinCo and a subsidiary of Wabtec then merged.

Record Date: GE shareholders must own GE stock by February 14th and hold through February 25th close of trade to be eligible to receive Wabtec shares.

Exchange ratio: GE shareholders receive .005371 shares of Wabtec for every 1 share of GE owned. Shareowners receive cash in exchange for fractional interests.

Fair Market Value: $78.06 per share, the closing stock price of Wabtec on February 25, 2019.*

Cost Basis Adjustment to GE Shares: No change to historic cost basis of GE shares.

Wabtec Cost Basis: A shareowner’s inclusion of the per share dividend amount in taxable income establishes the shareowner’s cost basis in the Wabtec shares.

Tax Forms: GE shareholders will receive a Form 1099-DIV reporting the $78.06 per share dividend of Wabtec. If a shareowner receives cash in lieu of fractional shares, shareowner will receive a Form 1099-B. GE will not be filing form 8937 because the transaction has no impact on the tax basis in GE shares.

GE will use a value of $78.06 per Wabtec share for reporting purposes on the Form 1099-DIV that GE will send to its shareowners and the IRS. A shareowner should consult with its tax advisor regarding the fair market value of the Wabtec shares.
Stock Redemption Program
Due to low participation, GE ended the Stock Redemption program on November 10, 2016 for GE Stock Direct Investors. If you want to sell your shares of GE stock, please contact GE’s current transfer agent, Equiniti Trust Company (EQ). Note that sales are subject to a fee of $10 per transaction plus $0.15 per share sold. This fee structure was not changed as part of the switch to Equiniti Trust Company (EQ) as new transfer agent.
Avoid Losing Your Shares to the State as Unclaimed Property
Every U.S. state puts an obligation on shareholders to remain active or their shares will be considered lost. If investors fail to communicate regularly with GE, their state of residence can take their shares and, in many cases, sell them. Investors will be required to go to the state to reacquire them, but if the state has sold their shares, they will have lost all dividends and any increase in value. Every state has this law, often referred to as Unclaimed Property.

If you hold stock directly with GE, these are the steps you can take to stay active as a shareowner:

Review and update your account details by contacting the GE’s transfer agent, Equiniti Trust Company (EQ), at least once every 3 years. The same rule applies for GE’s Dividend Reinvestment program. Vote in the Proxy each year when opportunity is provided.

Cash your dividend checks promptly. To avoid lost checks, consider setting up Direct Deposit for dividend payments.

Report shareholder status changes. If your spouse or parent passed away owning GE shares, contact EQ Shareowner Services to re-register the shares.

Immediately sign and return contact letter(s) mailed from EQ.
If you have other questions about unclaimed property, please call or write GE’s Unclaimed Property team:

Overview of General Electric Capital Corporation merger with and into GE
Effective December 2, 2015, General Electric Capital Corporation (GECC) merged with and into GE (the "Merger") to assure compliance with debt covenants as GECC exits the assets planned for disposition. Upon the Merger, the obligations of GECC under its then outstanding debt obligations were assumed by GE (the "GE Debt Assumption"). On December 2, 2015, as part of the GE Debt Assumption and as a result of the Merger, GE succeeded to GECC and assumed the obligations of GECC under all of GECC's outstanding indebtedness and other financial obligations, including:

Approximately $67.5 billion in senior unsecured, subordinated and senior secured notes issued or guaranteed by GECC pursuant to the GECC U.S. medium term note programs;

Approximately $55.2 billion of senior and subordinated debt securities issued or guaranteed by GECC under the GE Capital European medium term note program for issuances by GECC, GE Capital European Funding, GE Capital UK Funding and/or GE Capital Australia Funding Pty Ltd. ;

Approximately $8.9 billion of commercial paper issued by GECC.

The notes described above, and certain other debt securities issued by or guaranteed by GECC, benefited from the guarantee of GE provided pursuant to the Amended and Restated Agreement between GE and GECC, dated April 10, 2015 and various supplemental indentures entered into in connection therewith. As a result of the Merger and GE Debt Assumption, the Amended and Restated Agreement and the supplemental indentures have terminated according to their terms.
