B/E Aerospace Announces Tender Offer For Any And All Of Its Outstanding 8.50% Senior Notes Due 2018 And Consent Solicitation

B/E Aerospace (Nasdaq: BEAV) (the “Company”) today announced that it will commence a cash tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) for any and all of its 8.50% Senior Notes due 2018 (the “Notes”). In connection with the Tender Offer, the Company is soliciting consents (the “Consent Solicitation” and, together with the Tender Offer, the “Offer”) from the holders of the Notes for certain proposed amendments to the indenture governing the Notes (the “Indenture”) that would eliminate most of the restrictive covenants and certain default provisions applicable to the Notes. Holders who tender their Notes will automatically be deemed to consent to the proposed amendments and holders may not deliver consents to the proposed amendments without tendering their Notes in the Tender Offer. The Offer is scheduled to expire at 11:59 p.m. on August 3, 2012, unless the offer is extended or terminated. The terms and conditions of the Offer are described in an Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement, dated July 9, 2012 (the “Statement”) and the related Consent and Letter of Transmittal, which are being sent to holders of Notes.
