Reuters reported in August that General Electric had resumed negotiations to sell its industrial solutions business to ABB.

The companies are likely to announce an agreement by next week, Bloomberg reported citing sources.

ABB does not “comment on market rumours,” a company spokesman said. GE was not immediately available for comment.
