  RTI Announces 7-Year Agreement with Bombardier* to Supply Precision Machined
  Components and Assemblies

Business Wire

LE BOURGET, France -- June 19, 2013

RTI International Metals, Inc. (NYSE: RTI), today announced its wholly owned
subsidiary RTI Claro, Inc., earlier this year entered into a long-term
contract with Bombardier Aerospace (Bombardier) (TSE: BBD) to supply precision
machined components and assemblies for several Bombardier* aircraft models.
This agreement, which replaces a recently expired supply arrangement, runs
through 2019 and calls for RTI to manufacture components and assemblies not
previously provided by RTI.

With this new agreement, RTI Claro expands its presence across Bombardier’s
product line to include new platforms such as the CSeries* family of
commercial airliners, as well as the Learjet 85* and Global 7000* and Global
8000* business aircraft. RTI Claro will continue to contribute to the CRJ*
Series regional jets, as well as to the Challenger* and Global* business jets.
In addition, RTI Claro is enhancing its breadth of product and solution
offerings to Bombardier to now include the provision of larger aluminum
components. RTI expects to begin delivering these additional component and
assembly solutions as its new manufacturing equipment investments come online
this year.

“The combination of this new, enhanced, long-term supply agreement, and our
investment in additional machining capabilities at our RTI Claro facility,
demonstrate our growth as a trusted and strategic Bombardier supplier,” said
Dawne S. Hickton, Vice Chair, President and CEO of RTI. “The nature of the new
component and assembly solutions to be provided under this agreement will
require RTI to work with Bombardier as a more integrated part of their supply
chain. This is aligned with our growth strategy to become a provider of
product solutions across all stages of the aerospace supply chain.”

RTI Claro has been a high-performing and trusted supplier to Bombardier for
over 25 years. The company’s performance excellence is exemplified by its
achievement of a 4-STAR supplier rating and its success in becoming the first
supplier to reach the MACH 4 level under Bombardier’s sponsorship of the Aero
Montréal MACH supplier recognition initiative.
