When it comes to future acquisitions, McLoughlin told CNBC that Electrolux hadn't slowed down but rather remained "up to date" in its M&A processes.
The failure to secure an acquisition with the U.S. company caused Electrolux's business to slip into the red in 2015's final quarter, with the manufacturer reporting a 202 million Swedish crown ($23.7 million) operating loss on Thursday for the fourth quarter, in comparison to the previous year's profit of 1.4 billion crowns.
Despite the negative figure, the chief executive remained positive, telling CNBC it was a "healthy quarter," adding that the operating results were "quite good", after the GE transaction cost came in around 1.66 billion crowns for the quarter.
"(It was) a good healthy quarter, a good strong performance in Europe and North America, and in our professional group. Exceptional performance in cash flow, which puts the company in a very healthy position relative to the balance sheet and the firepower."
