GE Announces Plan for Auditor Tender Process

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 17 dicembre 2018

GE announced that the Audit Committee of its Board of Directors will move forward with a tender process for the appointment as GE’s independent audit firm. The effective date for the audit firm appointment following that process will be based on the progress toward completing the Company’s previously announced portfolio actions. The Audit Committee has determined to reappoint KPMG LLP (KPMG) as GE’s auditor for 2019.The announcement follows the annual auditor ratification vote at GE’s shareowner meeting in April 2018, which was significantly lower than prior years with approximately 65% of the votes cast in favor of ratifying KPMG’s appointment as GE’s auditor for 2018. Since the ratification vote, the Audit Committee has sought feedback from GE shareowners and considered a range of options in response.GE Audit Committee Chairman Geoff Beattie said, “The plan announced today is responsive to our shareowners and balances the competing considerations about undertaking an audit firm rotation amidst the portfolio and other strategic actions that the Company is currently executing.”The Audit Committee plans to provide additional details about its deliberations and the response to the 2018 auditor ratification vote in the Company’s proxy statement that will be filed in March 2019.

Roche Enter PartnershipGE Healthcare has entered into a strategic, long-term partnership with Roche (SIX: RO, ROG; OTCQX: RHHBY) to jointly develop and co-market digital clinical decision support solutions. The partnership will initially focus on products that accelerate and improve individualized treatment options for cancer and critical care patients.The two companies aim to develop an industry-first digital platform, using advanced analytics to provide workflow solutions and apps that support clinical decisions. This will allow the seamless integration and analysis of in-vivo and in-vitro data, patient records, medical best practice, real time monitoring and the latest research outcomes. Clinicians will then have the comprehensive decision support for providing the right treatment and quality of care for their patients.For example, oncology care teams with multiple specialists will have a comprehensive data dashboard to review, collaborate and align on treatment decisions for cancer patients at each stage of their disease. In the critical care setting, data from a patient’s hospital monitoring equipment will be integrated with their biomarker, tissue pathology, genomic and sequencing data, helping physicians to identify, or even predict severe complications before they strike.GE Healthcare is a worldwide leader in medical imaging equipment, while Roche Diagnostics is the global leader in in-vitro diagnostics.“This is the first time that two major players in healthcare have combined advanced analytics with in-vivo and in-vitro diagnostics to this degree. We believe this alliance will help accelerate the delivery of data-driven precision health for customers, patients and the healthcare industry,” said Kieran Murphy, President & CEO of GE Healthcare.“This unique partnership will deliver innovative solutions and insights in clinical decision-making. Our goal is to support clinicians and other relevant stakeholders for the benefit of patients by providing the right decision support at the right time and through comprehensive digital offerings,” said Roland Diggelmann, CEO Roche Diagnostics.
