GE Healthcare posts slight revenue gains in Q1

By staff writers

April 29, 2022 -- Ongoing supply-chain issues and global turbulence held back revenue growth and affected profitability for GE Healthcare in its first quarter. Orders were up 8%, however.

For the period (end-31 March), GE Healthcare had $4.363 billion (4.139 billion euros) in revenues, up 1% and up 2% on an organic basis compared with the $4.308 billion (4.088 billion euros) in revenues produced in the first quarter of 2021. Revenues from services were up 3% organically, while equipment revenues were flat organically.

The company said that growth was impacted by continued supply chain constraints, COVID-19 impacts in certain China regions, and lower volume in Russia and Ukraine.

On the bright side, orders reached $4.809 billion (4.563 billion euros), up 8% from the $4.472 billion (4.243 billion euros) generated in the same period last year. These figures included 9% organic growth in healthcare systems and 4% organic growth from pharmaceutical diagnostics.

GE Healthcare had profit of $538 million (510 million euros) for the period, compared with profit of $698 million (662 million euros) a year ago.
