General Electric posted higher quarterly net income on Friday, helped by sales of its jet engines and oil and gas equipment.
The U.S. conglomerate's third-quarter net income rose to $3.54 billion, or 35 cents per share, from $3.19 billion, or 31 cents per share, a year earlier.
Earnings excluding items came in at 38 cents a share, compared to 36 cents a share in the year-earlier period.
Revenue for the quarter totaled $36.2 billion, against the comparable year-ago figure of $35.73 billion.
Analysts had expected GE to report earnings excluding items of about 37 cents a share on $36.79 billion in revenue, according to a consensus estimate from Thomson Reuters.
Last month, GE agreed to sell its appliances unit to Electrolux for $3.3 billion as it takes steps to reshape its portfolio. General Electric stock has fallen about 13 percent year-to-date to close at $24.25 on Thursday.
