Aug. 15 2017, Published 3:35 p.m. ET

Baker Hughes merged with GE

On July 3, 2017, BHGE was formed from combination Baker Hughes and GE’s (GE) oil and gas business. (You can read more about this in Market Realist’s series GE to Partner with BHI? The Changing Oilfield Services Landscape.)

According to GE’s management, the cost synergies from the merger are expected to add $0.04 to GE’s earnings by 2018 and $0.08 by 2020. The synergy is expected to result from double throughput and a 50% part reduction in the combined Baker Hughes. The combined company, which is estimated to see $32 billion in annual revenues, could achieve $1.6 billion in annualized revenues and cost synergies by 2020.

BHGE makes up 2.3% of the SPDR S&P Oil & Gas Equipment & Services ETF (XES). XES has fallen 22% in the past year, compared with the 1% fall in BHGE’s stock price. The DJIA-INDEX has risen 18% in the past year.
