SACRAMENTO, Calif., Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --GenCorp Inc. (NYSE: GY)
("GenCorp") announced today that it has adopted a written trading plan for the
purpose of repurchasing up to $55 million worth of shares of its common stock
in accordance with the guidelines specified under Rule 10b5-1 under the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. A plan under Rule 10b5-1 allows
companies to repurchase shares at times when it might otherwise be prevented
from doing so by securities laws or because of self-imposed trading blackout
periods. Repurchases made under the plan are subject to the Securities and
Exchange Commission's regulations as well as certain price, market, volume,
and timing constraints specified in the plan. Since repurchases under the plan
are subject to certain constraints, there is no guarantee as to the exact
number of shares that will be repurchased under the plan. This plan has been
established pursuant to, and as part of, the Company's share repurchase
program. As previously announced on February 7, 2014, the Company's board of
directors authorized a share repurchase program of up to $75 million.
