I have actually discussed this problem formerly, however when firms are spun off they’re normally valued on the basis of business worth (market cap plus net financial debt) to revenues. If revenues (in this case GE Medical care) are weak, then it will minimize the amount of debt that GE Health care can carry to ensure a smooth offshoot.
