Stocks in this article: HXL

Disclaimer on Forward Looking Statements

This press release contains statements that are forward looking, including statements relating to anticipated trends in constant currency for the market segments we serve (including changes in commercial aerospace revenues, the estimates and expectations based on aircraft production rates made publicly available by Airbus and Boeing, the revenues we may generate from an aircraft model or program, the impact of delays in new aircraft programs, the outlook for space & defense revenues and the trend in wind energy, recreation and other industrial applications); our ability to maintain and improve margins in light of the changes in product mix, efficiency improvements, continued cost reduction efforts and the current economic environment; outcome of legal matters; the magnitude and timing of capital expenditures in relation to market demand; and the impact of the above factors on our expectations of 2011 financial results. Actual results may differ materially from the results anticipated in the forward looking statements due to a variety of factors, including but not limited to changing market conditions, increased raw material costs, competition, product mix, inability to achieve planned manufacturing improvements and cost reductions, supply chain disruptions, conditions in the financial markets and changes in currency exchange rates, interest rates, governmental and environmental regulations and tax codes. Additional risk factors are described in our filings with the SEC. We do not undertake an obligation to update our forward-looking statements to reflect future events.

Management believes that adjusted operating income, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and free cash flow (defined as cash provided byoperating activities less cash payments for capital expenditures), which are non-GAAP measurements, are meaningful to investors because theyprovide a view of Hexcel with respect to ongoing operating results excluding special items. Special items represent significant charges or creditsthat are important to an understanding of Hexcel’s overall operating results in the periods presented. In addition, management believes thattotal debt, net of cash, which is also a non-GAAP measure, is an important measure of Hexcel’s liquidity. Such non-GAAP measurements are notrecognized in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and should not be viewed as an alternative to GAAP measures ofperformance.
