In slides for the company's presentation at the Electrical Products Group Conference, GE states it is "pursuing options to de-risk GE Capital" and "evaluating further portfolio actions."

Updating on the Power segment, GE said the market is "challenged," with "services & cost critical to achieving double-digit margins." GE expects a 2018 HDGT
market of about 30-34 GW, but is "planning for lower" and is planning for less than 30 GW/year in 2019 and 2020, the slides added.
