Date:1/25/2012

RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif., Jan. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- AMPAC Fine Chemicals LLC (AFC), a wholly owned subsidiary of American Pacific Corporation (Nasdaq: APFC), announced today that is has been granted Registration as a Manufacturer of Controlled Substances from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).

AFC has been involved in the development of Schedule II Controlled Substances since 2008 under a Researcher's License from the DEA.  Recent facilities upgrades have expanded AFC's capabilities to include commercial scale manufacturing of Schedule II controlled substances.  This manufacturing is conducted within a high security area of AFC's Rancho Cordova, California, facilities, which are located within a Department of Defense-regulated campus. 

"AFC's upgraded controlled substance facility offers a state-of-the-art, remotely operated process plant which can safely run hydrogenations and hazardous chemical processes, while containing reactants and products with Operator Exposure Limit as low as 0.5 micrograms per cubic meter. The recent upgrades satisfy DEA requirements for producing Schedule II intermediates and active pharmaceutical ingredients under current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP)," stated Larry Zeagler, Executive Director of Product Management for AFC.

"We are pleased to add controlled substance commercial manufacturing to the value proposition that we bring to our customers.  This major milestone enhances our position as a fine chemical supplier with world-class cGMP manufacturing capabilities in the United States," stated Aslam Malik, President of AFC.

AFC's entry into the field of controlled substances is enabled by a commercial arrangement with a large pharmaceutical company. These developments position AFC for significant growth in the controlled substances area.
