Commenting on the Company’s third quarter 2013 performance, Amin J. Khoury, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of B/E Aerospace said, “Today’s third quarter 2013 results include record quarterly revenues, bookings, and operating earnings. Our revenue growth this quarter was driven by a double-digit increase in aftermarket demand, as well as a double-digit increase in demand related to the strong commercial aircraft delivery cycle. In addition, we are pleased to report that the consumables management segment aftermarket business experienced an accelerating growth rate in both revenues and orders during the quarter.”
