Baker Hughes, a GE company announced an agreement to sell its Natural Gas Solutions (NGS) business to two separate entities, First Reserve and Pietro Fiorentini S.p.A., for a combined value of $375 million.

This transaction includes the transfer of approximately 450 employees located in eight countries, including three manufacturing sites in North America and the United Kingdom.

“We’re continuously evaluating our portfolio to maximize value for all stakeholders,” BHGE Chairman and CEO Lorenzo Simonelli said. “We have found the right buyers for the NGS business, at an attractive valuation. We know our customers and employees are in good hands with both First Reserve and Pietro Fiorentini. Going forward, we will continue to evaluate our portfolio to best deliver for our customers and achieve our financial priorities of expanding margins, increasing market share and outperforming on cash generation.”

Both transactions are expected to close in the second half of 2018, subject to customary closing conditions and appropriate regulatory approvals. BHGE will work closely with the buyers to ensure a seamless transition for impacted employees, customers and suppliers. Financial terms of the individual agreements were not disclosed.
