AAR CORP. Chosen As One of Forbes' '100 Most Trustworthy Companies In America'

WOOD DALE, Illinois, March 24, 2014 – AAR CORP. (NYSE: AIR) has been named among the “100 Most Trustworthy Companies in America” in the mid-cap category of public companies by Forbes magazine. AAR is the only aerospace and defense contractor to be recognized this year, based on a rigorous assessment of the Company’s accounting, management and corporate governance practices over the four quarters of the previous fiscal year.

The review was conducted for Forbes by GMI Ratings, an independent financial analytics firm that uses more than 60 factors to assess a company’s trustworthy behavior. The recognition places AAR in a rarified field of companies that have made the list more than once. AAR was previously recognized in 2010. Fewer than 5 percent of public companies ever make the list.

“AAR is committed to meeting the highest standards of accountability and transparency across all our business operations worldwide,” said AAR Chairman and CEO David P. Storch. “We work hard to keep our shareholders informed and are honored to be recognized for our efforts.”

AAR is a leading provider of products and services to the commercial aviation, government and defense sectors. The Company has earned industry distinctions for aircraft maintenance, supply chain management and wheels and brakes services for commercial airplanes.
