hexcel corp (HXL) Key Developments

Hexcel Corp. to Build Carbon Fiber Plant in Roussillon, France

Hexcel Corp. announced that it will expand its carbon fiber production capacity through the addition of new precursor and carbon fiber lines in Roussillon, France. The $250 million investment will also include the associated Quality Control laboratories and offices. The new facility is part of Hexcel's ongoing worldwide investment to create a diversified and robust global supply chain to support aerospace customers' growing demand for carbon fiber composites. In recent years Hexcel has increased its precursor and carbon fiber capacities through targeted expansions at existing facilities. Most notably, Hexcel is investing in ongoing precursor and carbon fiber expansions at its U.S. facilities and is currently installing its resin mixing and filming technology - first developed in Europe - in the U.S. The new facility in France is the next step in support of European customers, enhancing the supply chain by adding precursor and additional carbon fiber capacity in Europe. The new French plant will occupy a 37 acre site at the Osiris Chemicals Industry Platform in Roussillon, which is close to Hexcel's weaving and prepreg manufacturing facilities near Lyon. Carbon fiber from the new plant will be supplied to Hexcel customers including Airbus for the A350 XWB and Safran for the CFM LEAP engine. Construction of the new plant will begin by mid-2015 and it is expected to employ 120 people when fully operational in early 2018.

Hexcel Corp. Closes on New Senior Credit Facility

Hexcel Corporation announced the successful consummation of a new $700 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility that will mature in five years. The new facility replaces the Company's previous $600 million senior secured credit facility. The new facility provides for a modest improvement in interest costs, but more importantly it is unsecured and provides the Company with greater financial flexibility and borrowing capacity going forward.

Hexcel Corp. Announces Amendments to its Bylaws

Hexcel Corp. announced that effective as of September 18, 2014, the company's bylaws were amended to adopt a provision providing that the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware shall be the exclusive forum for stockholder litigation and provisions related to the advance notification requirements by stockholders seeking to present proposals or director nominees at meetings, including that an adjournment or postponement of a stockholder meeting will not extend or commence a new notice period, disclosure requirements on arrangements regarding managing risks or benefits from share price changes and increasing or decreasing the voting power or economic interest of the stockholder, disclosure requirements by a nominee regarding arrangements to act or vote on any issue and compensation from others for service as a director and required representations by a nominee to comply with Hexcel's confidentiality, insider trading, and conflict of interest and ethics policies.
