HOUSTON & LONDON—(BUSINESS WIRE) – Oct. 17, 2019 – Baker Hughes, a GE company (NYSE: BHGE) announced today its successful name change to Baker Hughes Company. The Company will be known as Baker Hughes, and on Oct. 18, 2019, its Class A common stock will begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “BKR”.

Baker Hughes is uniquely positioned as an energy technology company, with a diverse portfolio that spans the entire energy value chain. The Company’s new name and brand better reflect its current and intended principal business operations and diversified portfolio.
