WELLINGTON, FL-B/E Aerospace Inc., based here, apparently has another acquisition, maybe more, in sight. The manufacturer of aircraft cabin interior products announced Tuesday it has arranged a new, five-year, $150-million credit facility through J.P. Morgan Securities Inc., with Chase Manhattan Bank serving as the administrative agent.

Under terms of the agreement, the company may use up to $100 million of the new facility for acquisition purposes.

News of the credit facility comes less than two weeks after the company announced it proposed a $177-million buyout of Miami-based M&M Aerospace Hardware Inc. Just days before that announcement, the company filed a universal shelf-registration statement to issue up to $250 million in subordinated notes or new stock–specifically for acquisition purposes.

When the deal with M&M Aerospace closes, B/E Aerospace would take control of a 201,827-sf industrial-warehouse building and 12 acres in the Miami-Dade County airport/west submarket, which M&M acquired in 1998 for about $5.2 million.

Not including the M&M property, B/E Aerospace B/E owns a portfolio of about 965,700 sf, and leases another 734,300 sf at various sites throughout the US and overseas.
