Stocks in this article: AVAV

AeroVironment, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVAV) today announced that it has filed preliminary proxy materials with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) in connection with the company’s 2013 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (“2013 Annual Meeting”). The company has established September 6, 2013 as the record date for stockholders entitled to vote at the 2013 Annual Meeting.

AeroVironment’s board of directors also announced today that it has nominated Tom Burbage, former executive vice president and general manager at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company, and Ed Muller, vice chairman of NRG, Energy, Inc. and former chairman and chief executive officer of both GenOn Energy, Inc. and Mirant Corporation, for election to the company’s board at the 2013 Annual Meeting, for terms expiring in 2016. Messrs. Burbage and Muller will replace current directors Kenneth R. Baker and Murray Gell-Mann who, following many years of dedicated service to AeroVironment, have chosen to retire from the board following the 2013 Annual Meeting. Additionally, the board has nominated existing director Charles Holland to stand for re-election at the 2013 Annual Meeting.

“Tom Burbage and Ed Muller are two well-respected and proven leaders in the aerospace and defense and energy industries who will complement our current board members with their valuable insights,” said Tim Conver, AeroVironment’s Chief Executive Officer and Chairman. “Tom and Ed bring to AeroVironment a wealth of expertise, both from within our industries and beyond. Their proven business knowledge, relevant skills and experience will be great assets for our company as we continue to execute our growth plan for the benefit of all AeroVironment stockholders.”

Conver added, “Tom Burbage has more than 30 years of aerospace and defense industry experience at Lockheed Martin and its predecessor company, most recently serving as executive vice president and general manager of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Program. We look forward to benefitting from Tom’s valuable perspective and experience on aerospace program development, management, global marketing and rapid scaling of complex programs.”
