We update the indirect constraints on the Georgi-Machacek model from B -physics and electroweak precision observables, including new constraints from b →s γ and Bs0→μ+μ- . We illustrate the effect of these constraints on the couplings of the Standard-Model-like Higgs boson by performing scans using the most general scalar potential, subject to vacuum stability and perturbativity constraints. We find that simultaneous enhancements of all the Higgs production cross sections by up to 39% are still allowed after imposing these constraints. LHC rate measurements on the Higgs pole could be blind to these enhancements if unobserved nonstandard Higgs decays are present.
