Aerojet Completes Sale of the Former Atlantic Research Corporation In-Space Propulsion Business


GenCorp Inc. announced today that its Aerojet-General subsidiary (Aerojet) has completed the sale of the former Atlantic Research Corporation (ARC) in-space propulsion business to American Pacific Corporation for $3.5 million in cash and the assumption of certain liabilities.

In October 2003, Aerojet acquired the ARC propulsion business. As a condition to the Federal Trade Commission's approval of that transaction, Aerojet was directed to divest ARC's in-space segment. Aerojet's Redmond-based in-space business is not affected by the sale to American Pacific Corporation.

GenCorp is a technology-based manufacturer with positions in the aerospace and defense, real estate and pharmaceutical fine chemicals industries. Aerojet is a world-recognized aerospace and defense leader principally serving the missile and space propulsion, and defense and armaments markets.
