Explanation of Responses:
(1)  Shares relinquished to pay withholding taxes payable in connection with the vesting of shares of restricted stock granted to the Reporting Person on April 7, 2014.
(2)  Shares held in the Aerojet Rocketdyne Retirement Savings Plan Trust (Plan Trust) as of April 7, 2017 which reflects the value in the participant's account as per the Plan Administrator's records. The number of shares reported is calculated by dividing the dollar value of the participant's account by the closing market price of the stock on the day reported above. This calculation yields only the approximate number of shares in the participant's account because the cash component in the Plan Trust (target 2%) is allocated to each participant's account on a pro rata basis, and the cash component varies based on overall activity of all participants in the Plan Trust. The number shown has been rounded down to the nearest whole number.
