On May 12, 2014, the Company issued a press release (the "May 12 Press Release," together with the May 9 Press Release, the "Press Releases") regarding the announcement by TransDigm Inc. of plans to amend its senior secured credit facilities to permit, among other things, a special dividend in the range of $900 million to $1.5 billion, to increase its existing senior secured term facility by $625 million, to change certain ratios in its existing senior secured credit facility and increase availability under its revolving credit facility to $400 million. In addition to the $625 million of new term loans, TransDigm Inc. may also seek to raise $2.35 billion of new subordinated debt. TransDigm Inc. may also utilize approximately $200 million of its trade receivables securitization facility. The May 12 Press Release is furnished as Exhibit 99.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

In connection with the announced plans to amend its senior secured credit facilities, as described above, the Company plans to make a presentation to its lenders, as further described in the May 12 Press Release. In that presentation, the Company will disclose pro forma revenue and pro forma EBITDA As Defined of $2,345 million and $1,025 million, respectively, for the twelve months ended March 29, 2014.

The information in this Current Report on Form 8-K and in the Press Releases shall not be deemed "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in filings under the Securities Act of 1933.
