Fred D. Gibson, Jr., said, "It has been my privilege to serve AMPAC and its stockholders alongside my fellow Board members, and I am proud of all we have achieved. During my more than 50 years at AMPAC and its predecessor, the Company has undergone a transformative evolution into a leading custom manufacturer of fine chemicals and specialty chemicals within its focused markets. Throughout this evolution, we have remained focused on creating value for AMPAC stockholders while successfully expanding the Company's customer base and product distribution around the globe."
Ms. Williams said, "AMPAC has achieved a well-deserved reputation in the aerospace industry for delivering high-quality and reliable technology and service. I am confident that the Company is on the right path and in capable hands to leverage its longstanding customer relationships to build on its success and develop into a stronger and more successful company."
Mr. Willard said, "We have accomplished a great deal during my time on the AMPAC Board, including the execution of initiatives that have led to significant profitable growth in In-Space Propulsion and the value creating divestiture of the ISP business. It has been an honor to serve on this Board, and I am confident that the Company is well positioned to continue generating value for all of its stakeholders."
Pursuant to the bylaws of the Company, following the effective dates of the retirements of Mr. Gibson, Ms. Williams and Mr. Willard, the AMPAC Board of Directors will comprise nine highly-qualified and experienced directors.RISK FACTORS/FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS Statements contained in this press release that are not purely historical are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
