On a GAAP basis, net loss narrowed to $1.08 per share from net loss of $2.62 per share in the prior-year quarter. GAAP loss per share from continuing operations improved 94% year-over-year to $0.15.

For fiscal 2019, GE expects adjusted EPS to be between $0.55 and $0.65. The company increased the industrail free cash flow forecast to a range of $0-2 billion from the prior estimated range of $(1)-1 billion.

“We are encouraged by our strong backlog, organic growth, margin expansion, and positive cash trajectory amidst global macro uncertainty. We are raising our Industrial free cash flow outlook again even with external headwinds from the 737 MAX and tariffs, and we are holding our adjusted EPS outlook despite reduced income from moving Baker Hughes to discontinued operations,” said CEO Lawrence Culp, Jr.

Upon ceding majority ownership of Baker Hughes, GE expected to record a significant loss upon deconsolidating the segment, and segment results were reclassified to discontinued operations.
