Item 8.01. Other Events
     GenCorp Inc. (the “Company”) is filing this Current Report on Form 8-K to reflect certain accounting changes described below with respect to the financial information contained in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended November 30, 2009 (the “2009 Form 10-K”), which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 4, 2010. The information contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K is not an amendment to or restatement of the 2009 Form 10-K.
     As of December 1, 2009, the Company adopted the new accounting standards which apply to convertible debt securities that, upon conversion, may be settled by the issuer, fully or partially, in cash. The guidance is effective for fiscal years (and interim periods within those fiscal years) beginning after December 15, 2008 and is to be applied retrospectively to all past periods presented—even if the instrument has matured, converted, or otherwise been extinguished as of the effective date of this guidance.
     The Company’s adoption of this guidance affects its 2 1/4% Convertible Subordinated Debentures (“2 1/4% Debentures”). This guidance requires the issuer of convertible debt instruments to separately account for the liability (debt) and equity (conversion option) components of such instruments and retrospectively adjust the financial statements for all periods presented. The fair value of the liability component was determined based on the market rate for similar debt instruments without the conversion feature and the residual between the proceeds and the fair value of the liability component is recorded as equity at the time of issuance. Additionally, the pronouncement requires transaction costs to be allocated to the liability and equity components on the same relative percentages.
     The Company’s adoption of this guidance results in higher non-cash interest expense for fiscal 2005 through fiscal 2011, assuming the holders will require the Company to repurchase the 2 1/4% Debentures at a cash price equal to 100% of the principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest on November 20, 2011, the earliest date when the holders can exercise such right. The impact to net income (loss) from fiscal 2005 through fiscal 2009 is as follows:
                                         
    Year Ended  
    2009     2008     2007     2006     2005  
    (In millions, except per share amounts)  
Net income (loss), as reported
  $ 59.3     $ 1.5     $ 69.0     $ (38.5 )   $ (230.0 )
Increase in non-cash interest expense, net of income taxes
    (7.1 )     (6.7 )     (6.2 )     (5.7 )     (5.4 )
 
                             
Net income (loss), as adjusted
  $ 52.2     $ (5.2 )   $ 62.8     $ (44.2 )   $ (235.4 )
 
                             
As reported
                                       
Basic income (loss) per share of Common Stock
  $ 1.01     $ 0.03     $ 1.23     $ (0.69 )   $ (4.21 )
 
                             
Diluted income (loss) per share of Common Stock
  $ 0.97     $ 0.03     $ 1.14     $ (0.69 )   $ (4.21 )
 
                             
As adjusted
                                       
Basic income (loss) per share of Common Stock
  $ 0.89     $ (0.09 )   $ 1.12     $ (0.80 )   $ (4.31 )
 
                             
Diluted income (loss) per share of Common Stock
  $ 0.86     $ (0.09 )   $ 1.05     $ (0.80 )   $ (4.31 )
 
                             
     The retrospective application of the new accounting standards which apply to the 2 1/4% Debentures impacts only the following items of the 2009 Form 10-K and are included in this Current Report on Form 8-K:
*Part II, Item 6 — Selected Financial Data

*Part II, Item 7A — Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk
*Part II, Item 8 — Consolidated Financial Statements and Supplementary Data
*Part IV, Item 15(a) — Financial Statement Schedules
     All other information in the 2009 Form 10-K remains unchanged, except for the reclassification of the amortization of deferred financing costs described in Note 3(e) in the consolidated financial statements. This Current Report on Form 8-K does not modify or update the disclosures contained in the 2009 Form 10-K in any way, nor does it reflect any subsequent information, activities or events occurring after February 4, 2010, other than as required to reflect the adoption of the new accounting standards as described above. Without limitation to the foregoing, this Current Report on Form 8-K does not purport to update Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations included in the 2009 Form 10-K for any information, uncertainties, transactions, risks, events or trends occurring, or known to management. More current information is included in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended February 28, 2010, in which the Company adjusted the unaudited consolidated financial statements for the prior year quarter to reflect the retrospective application of the new accounting standard discussed above. This Current Report on Form 8-K should be read in conjunction with the 2009 Form 10-K (except for Items 6, 7, 7A, 8 and 15(a) which are
