SACRAMENTO, Calif., Oct. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- GenCorp Inc. ("GenCorp") (NYSE: GY) today announced that it is notifying holders of its 2 1/4% Convertible Subordinated Debentures due 2024 (the "Debentures") that they have an option to require GenCorp to repurchase, on November 21, 2011, all or a portion of their Debentures at a purchase price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Debentures to be repurchased, plus any accrued and unpaid interest (the "Option").  As of October 19, 2011, the outstanding principal amount of the Debentures was $46,619,000.  Under the terms of the Debentures, GenCorp will pay the repurchase price in cash.  If all outstanding Debentures are surrendered for purchase pursuant to the Option, the aggregate cash purchase price will be $46,633,568, which includes accrued but unpaid interest.

Later today, GenCorp will file a Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
