Attachment A


The Company expects to record between a $350 million and $400 million pre-tax charge related primarily to the Gulfstream business jet programs.  As a result of the charge, the Company will report an operating loss and a net loss in the second quarter of 2013, compared with operating income of $83 million and net income of $35 million in the second quarter of 2012.  The charge is primarily related to forecasted cost growth in the Wing segment in the years 2014-2021 with minimal cash flow impact in the current period.


The Company also expects to report that second quarter 2013 revenues were $1.521 billion, up 13% from $1.341 billion for the same period of 2012, driven by higher production volumes and non-production revenues.  Total operating performance also improved year over year excluding the charge described above.


The financial information in this Form 12b-25 is preliminary and subject to the results of the auditor’s review described above.


This Form 12b-25 contains “forward-looking statements” as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Additional written and oral forward-looking statements may be made by us from time to time in Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings and otherwise. The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides a safe-harbor for forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements include statements that are predictive in nature and depend upon or refer to future events or conditions, and include, but are not limited to, information regarding the status and progress of our operating activities, the plans and objectives of our management and assumptions regarding our future performance, operating expenses, working capital needs, liquidity and capital requirements, business trends and competitiveness. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, words such as “believe,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “project”, “may”, “planned”, “potential”, “should”, “will, “would”, “could”, “might”, “possible”, “contemplate”, “continue”, “expect,” “intend,” “seek” or the negative of or other variations on these and other similar expressions. In addition, any statements concerning future financial performance, ongoing business strategies or prospects, and possible future actions, are also forward-looking statements. We caution readers that results predicted by forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, those relating to our future business prospects, revenues, working capital, liquidity, capital needs, interest costs and income are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements.  Such material risks and uncertainties are set forth in the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, and any subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, each as filed with the SEC. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which reflect the Company’s opinions only as of the date of this Form 12b-25. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly release any revisions to the forward-looking statements after the date of this Form 12b-25.
