I’ve discussed this issue previously, yet when companies are spun off they’re typically priced on the basis of enterprise worth (market cap plus web financial debt) to revenues. If profits (in this instance GE Healthcare) are weak, then it will lower the quantity of financial debt that GE Medical care can carry to make sure a smooth spinoff.
