@Vishal :

I have no idea about AIX, I tested it on Centos 6.5, alternate solution using awk you can use if grep doesn't work, or else you may wait until someone else provide you a grep solution for AIX.

We can try the following codes to get the same.

echo "ST1 PREF: int1 AVAIL: int2" |  sed 's/\(.*: \)\(.*\)\( AVAIL:.*\)/\2/1;1q' 

echo "ST2 PREF :int1 AVAIL: int2" | sed 's/\(.*AVAIL: \)\(.*\)/\2/g;1q' 

this may help you.

..... and so you learn the valuable lesson that you need to specify the OS flavour and version to help us to help you.

You might have to go with something simpler like:-
grep expression | while read col1 col2 col3 col4 col5 .....
   # some action for values returned

If you need to remove the : then have a look at the tr command.

I hope that this helps,
