B/E Aerospace to create two separate industry-leading companies
B/E Aerospace’s Board of Directors has commenced a process to separate its leading businesses into two independent, publicly traded companies — one focused on aircraft cabin interior equipment – design, development, manufacturing, certification and direct sales on a global basis (“Manufacturing Co.”), and the other focused on distribution, logistics and technical services for the aerospace and energy services markets (“Services Co.”). The Company said that the separation announcement represents an important step in its ongoing strategic review process, noting that the Company’s Board and management are continuing to review and aggressively pursue its strategic alternatives to enhance value to shareholders. Each of the new companies will be a global leader in its respective market. B/E has positioned both businesses to be successful, profitable and sustainable independent companies, and this decision reflects a further evolution of the Company’s strategies emphasizing the development of the Company’s businesses, addressing their distinct needs and thereby increasing their value to shareholders.
