(“PCC”) (NYSE: PCP) for all of the outstanding common stock of TIMET for $16.50 per share in cash. The TIMET Board of Directors, based on the recommendation of a special committee of the Board consisting of independent directors, has recommended that stockholders accept the offer, which represents a premium of 36% over the 30-day average of TIMET shares and a 44% premium to the closing price of TIMET common stock on November 8, 2012.

The Company has previously announced that stockholders of record as of the close of business on December 7, 2012 would be entitled to the quarterly dividend of $0.075 per share of TIMET common stock, payable on December 19, 2012. The tender offer will have no effect on the payment of the dividend, and stockholders of record as of December 7, 2012 will receive the dividend, even if they tender their shares before the December 7, 2012 record date.
