The updated accounting standard takes into account revenue from long-term contracts, which are being scrutinized by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

    GE had said in February that it expected to take a $4.2 billion accounting charge as it switches to the new standard.

    The company also said it would report its first-quarter earnings on April 20 under the new standard and that it would have no impact on its 2018 forecast.
