B&W Evaluating a Separation of its Businesses

01 October 2014

(CHARLOTTE, N.C. – October 1, 2014) – The Babcock & Wilcox Company (B&W) (NYSE:BWC)  today announced that its Board of Directors is evaluating the separation of the Company’s Power Generation Business and Government & Nuclear Operations Business into two publicly traded companies. The Board’s goal is to determine whether a separation creates the opportunity for enhanced shareholder value and business focus. B&W has retained JPMorgan as its financial advisor and Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz and Jones Day as legal advisors to assist in this process.

B&W noted that there can be no assurance that a separation will occur or, if a separation is approved, its terms or timing.  Additional detail will be provided on the Company’s third quarter 2014 earnings call in early November.
