Abstract: A general factorization theorem for symmetrizable operators relating their spectra to spectra of selfadjoint operators induced by minimal factorizations is established. Its modified version essentially improves and completes a theorem of Jorgensen, which concerns diagonalizing operators with reflection symmetry.
