Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets, Other Events, Financial Statement


Item 2.01. Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of
Assets

On March 14, 2014, Textron Inc. ("Textron") completed its previously announced acquisition of Beech Holdings, LLC ("Beech") pursuant to the terms of an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement") by and among Textron, Textron Acquisition LLC, Beech, and Sky Intermediate Merger Sub, LLC. Beech is the parent of Beechcraft Corporation, a leading manufacturer of business, special mission, light attack and trainer aircraft.

As a result of the acquisition, Beech became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Textron, and all issued and outstanding equity interests in Beech were converted automatically into the right to receive cash merger consideration in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement.

In addition, units allocated in respect of certain unsecured claims under the Plan of Reorganization of Beech's predecessor in interest were converted automatically into the right to receive an amount in cash as set forth in a trust agreement entered into between Beech and The Bank of New York Mellon, as trustee for the benefit of the holders of such units and other holders of unsecured claims.

Textron paid approximately $1.4 billion in cash for all of the issued and outstanding equity interests in Beech. Textron financed a portion of the purchase price, as well as the repayment at closing of Beech's working capital credit facility, with the issuance on January 30, 2014 of $600 million in senior notes and by drawing $500 million under the Term Credit Agreement, entered into as of January 24, 2014, with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent, Citibank, N.A. and Bank of America, N.A., as syndication agents and The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd., as documentation agent, and other lenders. The balance was paid from cash on hand.

The foregoing description of the acquisition and the Merger Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Merger Agreement, which was filed as Exhibit 10.19 to Textron's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 28, 2013 and is incorporated herein by reference.
