Aerojet Rocketdyne Sacramento Facility Receives Outstanding Industrial
Security Achievement Award

SACRAMENTO, Calif., June 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aerojet Rocketdyne, a
GenCorp (NYSE:GY) company, announced today that its Sacramento facility is a
2013 recipient of the Defense Security Service's (DSS) James S. Cogswell
Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement Award.

The Cogswell Award, established in 1966, is named in honor of the late U.S.
Air Force Col. James S. Cogswell, the first chief of the office of Industrial
Security within the Department of Defense. Cogswell was responsible for
developing the basic principles of the Industrial Security Program, which
include an emphasis on the partnership between industry and government to
protect classified information.

"The Cogswell Award recognizes industrial security excellence, and Aerojet
Rocketdyne exemplifies that standard in all of its security operations," said
Kyle Frigo, Sacramento facility security officer. "We strive to be an elite
team of security professionals and work diligently to protect the work the
country entrusts us to execute. This award is to be shared with the entire
facility, and our security team is to be commended for this achievement."

This year, DSS presented the James S. Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security
Achievement Award to 24 of 13,800 defense contractors that are eligible for
this award. The award criteria focus on principles of industrial security
excellence. Factors include establishing and maintaining a security program
that far exceeds the basic National Industrial Security Program requirements
and providing leadership to other cleared facilities in establishing best
practices while maintaining the highest standards for security.

providing propulsion and energetics to the space, missile defense, strategic,
