TransDigm Group Incorporated (NYSE: TDG) announced that it is seeking to increase its existing term loan facility by an additional $650 million term loan in connection with considering whether to pay a special dividend.

The Company is considering paying a cash dividend in the range of $1.1 billion to $1.5 billion with the proceeds of the proposed new term loan and cash on hand. The specific timing and aggregate amount of the dividend, if any, has not been determined and there can be no assurance that such dividend will be declared and paid or that the proposed new financing will be completed. Whether to pay the dividend and the amount thereof are subject to consideration of various factors by the Company's Board of Directors, including, among other things, the Company's financial position, the availability of capital on favorable terms, and liquidity and capacity post-dividend adequate to meet our likely range of acquisition and other business requirements.

In connection with the proposed additional term loan and related discussions with lenders, the Company is providing an update on its preliminary expectations for certain fiscal 2016 results relative to the guidance provided on August 9, 2016 in its third quarter earnings release. Based on these preliminary expectations the August 9, 2016 guidance still appears to be materially correct. Based on currently available information, the Company expects fiscal 2016 EBITDA As Defined to be at or modestly above the midpoint of the previously stated guidance range and net sales to be at or slightly below the low end of the guidance range. This information is preliminary and based on estimates for the recently completed fiscal year. The Company plans to announce actual fiscal 2016 results on November 14, 2016.
