American Pacific Announces New Directors And Agreement With Stockholder Golconda

LAS VEGAS, Dec. 14, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- American Pacific Corporation (Nasdaq: APFC) today announced that it has added two experienced pharmaceutical and health care executives, Charlotte E. Sibley and Bart Weiner, to its board of directors. These individuals had been recommended separately by Golconda Capital Portfolio, L.P. and another of the Company's stockholders. To accommodate these individuals joining the board, the Company has expanded the size of its board from 10 to 12 directors. The board has also announced an intention to reduce the size of the board over time through the non-replacement of current directors who retire or are otherwise unable to serve.

In addition, the Company reaffirmed its intention to propose at its next annual meeting of stockholders that the stockholders amend AMPAC's certificate of incorporation to replace the 80% vote requirement for director elections with a simple majority vote requirement.

The Company also announced that it has entered into an agreement with Golconda Capital Portfolio, L.P., Golconda Capital Management, LLC, and William D. Summitt (collectively, " Golconda") to resolve a potential proxy contest. Among other agreements among the parties, Golconda will vote their shares in support of all the Company's board nominees at the Company's upcoming annual meeting.

Dr. Joseph Carleone, President and CEO of American Pacific Corporation, stated, "We are pleased to have resolved these issues so that management and the board of American Pacific can focus on our principal goal, enhancing stockholder value, rather than on the expense and distractions of a potential proxy contest." Mr. Summitt, Managing Member of Golconda Capital Management, LLC, stated, " Golconda is pleased that the Company added experienced individuals from the pharmaceutical industry to the Company's board of directors, and reaffirmed its commitment to present to stockholders an amendment to allow a majority vote on director elections."

The contents of the agreement with Golconda can be found in a Form 8-K to be filed by the Company with the Securities & Exchange Commission.
