Item 8.01. Other Events.

On June 28, 2016, General Electric Company (“GE”) received approval of its request to the U.S. Financial Stability Oversight Council (“FSOC”) for rescission of the designation of GE’s financial services businesses (“GE Capital”) as a nonbank systemically important financial institution (“nonbank SIFI”) under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (the “Dodd-Frank Act”).

With the rescission of its designation as a nonbank SIFI, GE Capital’s activities will no longer be subject to the supervision of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System or subject to the prudential standards set forth in the Dodd-Frank Act and its implementing regulations, including minimum regulatory capital and liquidity requirements, submission of annual resolution plans, and regulatory reporting requirements. GE Capital’s non-U.S. operations will remain subject to the supervision of the U.K. Prudential Regulation Authority until GE Capital’s international holding company no longer includes licensed credit institutions, a process that GE Capital is targeting to complete in the first half of 2017.
