GE Appliances Will Continue to be Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky and Run by Its Current Management Team

Haier is Committed to Investing to Further Grow the U.S. Business
QINGDAO, China – January 15, 2016 – Haier Group (“Haier”) and General Electric (NYSE: GE; “GE”), today announced a Memorandum of Understanding (“MoU”) to cooperate globally and jointly pursue growth projects in focus areas where both companies can increase business competitiveness such as Industrial Internet, healthcare, and advanced manufacturing. This strategic cooperation framework agreement brings together two highly complementary world-class enterprises and establishes a model for cross-border investment and cooperation between China and the United States.
In addition, Qingdao Haier Co., Ltd. (SHA: 600690; “Qingdao Haier”), a Shanghai stock exchange listed company that is 41% owned by Haier, will acquire the GE Appliances business (“GE Appliances”). Qingdao Haier acquired all overseas operations of Haier Group in June 2015, as part of the expansion of Haier’s global business. The coming together of Qingdao Haier and GE Appliances will further enhance Qingdao Haier’s global competitiveness. GE Appliances has more than 100 years of brand heritage, a loyal mid- to high-end customer base, a highly experienced and accomplished management team, a distinctive corporate culture, a strong white goods portfolio, an extensive self-owned logistics and distribution network in the North American market, and an established quality control system.
Mr. Zhang Ruimin, Chairman and CEO of Haier Group, commented: “This strategic alliance provides a new starting point for both Haier and GE and I am confident that this partnership will deliver enhanced value to the stakeholders of both companies. Further, we share common goals that we hope to achieve together: enhancing the value of the Haier and GE brands and developing our employees by encouraging autonomous innovation and cooperation.”
Mr. Jeff Immelt, CEO of GE, commented: “We are pleased to be selling our Appliances business to Haier and to launch this new partnership. Haier has a stated focus to grow in the U.S., build their manufacturing presence here, and to invest further in the business. Innovation, new product introduction, and brand management are fundamental to their overall strategy. GE Appliances provides Haier with great products, state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, and a talented team. In addition, we see the opportunity to work together to build the GE brand in China.”
GE Appliances is headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky and is a leading home appliances company in North America. The business has nine manufacturing plants across five states in the U.S. and has built world-class logistics and distribution capabilities as well as strong customer relationships in both the retail and contract channels. In 2014, GE Appliances had approximately US$5.9 billion in revenue and $0.4 billion in EBITDA. The company employs approximately 12,000 employees globally, 96% of whom are based in the United States.
The acquisition of GE Appliances is an important investment in expanding Haier’s presence in the U.S. and in the Western hemisphere. GE Appliances will remain headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky. The business will continue to be operated independently under the direction of a local board with the participation of GE’s current senior management team, who will guide the strategy and operations of the business. Haier is committed to investing in the continued growth of the U.S. business.
This transaction will create immediate and long-term value not only for the communities in which both companies operate, but also for employees, customers, business partners, and shareholders. Haier and GE Appliances will support and have access to consumers and suppliers in Haier’s and GE’s respective and complementary regions. In particular, this transaction will provide GE Appliances access to the demand for its high-quality products in the China market and position the company for further international growth. Furthermore, by creating a larger, more global company, the transaction will provide increased opportunities for all employees.
Mr. Liang Haishan, Chairman of Qingdao Haier Co., Ltd., commented: “Qingdao Haier and GE Appliances are leading appliance businesses in the Eastern and Western hemispheres. The alliance of both parties will lead to a great deal of mutual benefit. Qingdao Haier and GE Appliances are highly complementary businesses, particularly in the areas of brand, market, product innovation, and supply chain and quality management. This coming together will further enhance both the Haier and GE brands. GE Appliances’ highly-experienced and successful management team will continue to guide the direction of the business and will be involved in the governing board. In addition, Qingdao Haier will provide support and employee development opportunities within our global operating platform. We benefit from KKR’s experience and extensive network, which have really added value to this acquisition.”
As part of the acquisition, GE will receive a cash consideration from Qingdao Haier of $5.4 billion. The transaction is structured primarily as an asset purchase. Net of certain expected benefits, the transaction value represents an 8.2x multiple based on GE Appliances’ estimated 2015 EBITDA, which was up nearly 50% from levels two years ago.
The acquisition includes GE Appliances’ 48.4% stake in Mabe, a Mexican appliance company that has operated a joint venture and has had a sourcing relationship with GE Appliances for 28 years.
As part of the transaction, under Qingdao Haier’s ownership, GE Appliances will continue to market the current portfolio of GE brands for a period of 40 years (inclusive of two 10-year extensions).

Beijing, January 20th, 2016 – Haier, the world’s leading home appliances and consumer electronics brand, has once again been named by Euromonitor International as the number one major appliances brand in the world. This is the seventh consecutive year that Haier has received the accolade recognizing the company as the largest home appliances globally by market share. According to data released by Euromonitor International, which is an independent and leading global provider of business intelligence on industries, countries, companies and consumers, Haier attained a 9.8% market share of global retail volumes in 2015.
A transformation in the global major appliances market was witnessed in 2015, with consumers increasingly using Internet platforms to call for individualized product requirements. Outdated and closed industrial manufacturing systems are today unable to satisfy these bespoke demands of the individual customer. Companies therefore need to be able to listen and react to consumers’ changing needs in order to stand out from the market. In spite of weak growth in the global home appliances market, Haier was able to succeed and maintain its recognized position as the world’s leading home appliances manufacturer largely owing to its ability and desire to adapt its business model to the Internet age and the shifting demands of connected consumers.
Haier has created an entire ecosystem that nurtures innovative ways to engage with its consumers. Online factories are such an example. They are a model of manufacturing developed by Haier in line with future visions as set out in Industry 4.0. Haier has already launched a number of these online factories, including a refrigerator factory in Shenyang and an air conditioner factory in Zhengzhou. By linking their consumers to factories and suppliers, Haier’s consumers have become designers and are able to directly take part in the R&D and manufacturing processes for new products. This is in line with the company’s aspiration to make the world both their R&D Department and their Human Resources Department.
These new ways of engaging with its customers as well as Haier’s increasing utilization of popular smart home solutions led to the development of a number of notable product launch successes in 2015. Examples such as the company’s Clean-Free washing machine – that cleans its tub while washing clothes – helped Haier gain top spot in Euromonitor’s International product category ranking for Home Laundry Appliances. Likewise, its Xinchu Refrigerator – that connects to the Internet to become an interactive platform enabling users to watch videos and order food while cooking – was another product hit in 2015, helping Haier top the Refrigeration Appliances product category ranking. Haier also ranked first in Euromonitor’s International rankings in two other product categories: Freezers and Electrical Wine Coolers/Chillers.
Going forward into 2016, Haier, which announced a strategic partnership agreement with General Electric as well as the acquisition of GE Appliances last Friday, January 15, plans to continue its evolution from a traditional manufacturing company into a platform to incubate entrepreneurs. Haier will continue to build its co-creation platform in 2016 as part of its commitment to win together through integrity and create value for all its stakeholders.
An office renovation is the ideal time to find efficient, effective ways to upgrade your interior space. Your colleagues, staff and clients will greatly benefit from a new Haier air conditioner. If you’re investing in upgrades, then consider the many benefits – such as improved cooling and air quality –you will experience from a new air conditioning unit.
There are a number of benefits related to investing in new air conditioners including the following:
- It will perform better: The air conditioners designed and developed today are much different to the old systems that were available many years ago. New air conditioners offer a number of features, such as WiFi control options, automated features and super-fast cooling, which will easily outperform your older system.
- You will save money: New air conditioning systems are much more energy efficient than older models. Many governments and authorities know that over 50% of building’s utility bills is attributed to heating and cooling, which is why they are forcing companies to find ways to reduce their demand on the national power grid. A new air conditioning system will help you achieve this.
- Fewer costly repairs: While it’s true you can’t replace every item once it starts giving problems, you can only spend so much on maintenance and repairs. If your air conditioning unit has been giving you problems for a number of years, then you could save a lot of money by spending less on costly air conditioning unit repairs.

Want to add versatility to your kitchen? Then consider a high quality electric oven with rotisserie. Thanks to this useful piece of kitchen equipment, roasting food at home has never been easier.
Many of these electric ovens come with great accessories such as a poultry tower for roasting chicken, a versatile basket for roasting fish or vegetables or a skewer tray so that you can make your own kebabs at home, for example. Even if the electric oven with rotisserie doesn’t come with the aforementioned accessories, you can easily buy them separately at any kitchen supply store in the UAE.
How to use an electric oven with rotisserie
An electric oven with rotisserie is very easy to use. To roast a chicken, for example, all you have to is season the chicken with whatever spices you prefer (such as thyme, lemon zest or simply with salt and pepper), truss the legs and the wings then lift the chicken onto the poultry tower or pan. The pans which come with the electric oven easily fit into the oven and are easy to clean. You can then choose the temperature option and roasting time.
Cooking food inside a rotisserie oven ensures even browning on your food and there are usually lights within the oven so you can watch your food roast.
An electric oven with rotisserie is a great way to add a few much-loved dishes to your cooking repertoire. For more information about investing in a high quality electric oven with rotisserie, visit Haier’s website today.
In many parts of the UAE, people don’t drink water from the tap. We’ve become so accustomed to having bottled water that we don’t always immediately consider the other (better) alternative – water dispensers
Whether you run a household or an office, a water dispenser can give you crystal clear, clean, hygienic and cool water on tap whenever you need it. Water is vital for your health and for the wellbeing and productivity of your workforce.
Many health organizations recommend people drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. There are a number of benefits of getting this vital source of hydration from a water dispenser, including the following:
Benefits of a chilled water dispenser
- More economical: Buying bottled water can become expensive. While a water dispenser will require an initial investment, in the long run it will be cheaper than buying bottled water.
- More sustainable: Plastic water bottles end up on our landfills and can become a huge source of pollution. Water dispensers will eliminate your contribution to plastic bottles in landfills.
- More convenient: With a water dispenser, you will always have ice cold water on tap. Whenever you need water at the right temperature, your water dispenser will be able to provide it.
Water dispensers are environmentally-friendly, convenient and cost-effective, making it the ideal decision for any homeowner or business owner. If you’re looking for a top quality water dispenser, browse Haier’s website now. We offer state-of-the-art and top-of-the-range water dispensers for a variety of needs.
Microwave ovens can be loaded with features. Some offer convection features, for example, which let you bake or roast in a microwave (something you would traditionally only be able to do in a large oven). There are also new features such as grill options, which let you brown or grill items like a grilled cheese sandwich.
