COMMITTEE FOR AEROJET ROCKETDYNE SHAREHOLDERS AND

VALUE MAXIMIZATION WELCOMES CHAIRMAN LICHTENSTEIN’S ABOUT

FACE AND BELATED CONCESSION TO PUBLICLY RELEASE

RESULTS OF INTERNAL INVESTIGATION INTO HIS MISCONDUCT

EL SEGUNDO, Calif., May 4, 2022. Eileen Drake (the CEO of Aerojet Rocketdyne (NYSE: AJRD)) and Gen. Kevin Chilton (Ret.), Thomas Corcoran and Gen. Lance Lord (Ret.) (three of its Independent Directors) today issued the following statement:

“We are pleased that Executive Chairman Warren Lichtenstein has finally reversed course and conceded the need to release the results of the internal investigation into his misconduct and violations of company policy and Code of Conduct. It is unfortunate for stockholders that it took three months of lobbying on our part and a hearing before the Delaware Court of Chancery for him to accede to stockholders’ demands for transparency. We look forward to this important information being made available to stockholders.”
