W. Nicholas Howley, TransDigm Group's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Our regularly stated goal is to give our shareholders returns similar to well performing private equity funds while providing the liquidity of a public market. This special dividend is part of our ongoing efforts to actively manage our balance sheet as part of our program to meet that goal. We believe the credit market conditions continue to be favorable and provide us with the opportunity to accelerate returns to shareholders, reduce our overall average interest rate and extend maturities. The combination of current cash on hand, undrawn revolver, additional capacity under our credit agreement, and our typically strong quarterly cash generation should allow us adequate financial flexibility to meet the likely range of currently anticipated operating and acquisition needs."
