EAST AURORA, N.Y., Nov. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Astronics Corporation (Nasdaq:ATRO), a leading provider of advanced technologies for the global aerospace and defense industries, announced its 2014 preliminary revenue outlook, which assumes completion of its recently announced PGA Electronic ("PGA") acquisition by the end of 2013, to be approximately in the range of $450 million and $500 million.
Peter J. Gundermann, CEO of Astronics, commented, "We believe, given our recent acquisitions of PECO and AeroSat, the momentum of our core business, and assuming a successful close of the PGA acquisition, that 2014 will result in another year of record revenue for Astronics. In fact, we believe the lower end of our preliminary range is somewhat conservative."
