The company’s GAAP operating income was $271 million for the quarter, which means it increased 54% sequentially and increased more than three times year-over-year.

Lorenzo Simonelli, BHGE Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said: “We delivered a solid second quarter 2019 both commercially and operationally. The trends for our longer-cycle businesses remain intact. The Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) new-build cycle is a strong positive for our company and our international Oilfield Services (OFS) business continues to be very successful.”
He added: “Our outlook for 2019 is unchanged and we remain focused on our priorities of gaining share, improving margins and delivering strong cash flows.”
