Consumer Electronics Industry Snapshot GE Appliances
Brian Kelley, Vice President, Sales - GE Appliances
1) How did 1998's financial turmoil affect your business?
There was no significant impact to GE Appliances from any global financial instability in 1998, other than a slowing of revenue growth in Asia and Latin America. Exports remain a small share of our sales. This had very little impact on domestic consumer purchases of major appliances.
