GENERAL ELECTRIC EARNS

This is the sign in front of General Electric Co.’s Fairfield, Connecticut headquarters Thursday June 14, 2001. Aegon NV, Europe’s third-largest insurer, agreed to sell most of its U.S.-based Transamerica Finance Corp. to a unit of General Electric Co. for $1 billion in cash to free up capital after falling stocks eroded reserves.
