Boca Raton, FL – April 18, 2016 – AE Industrial Partners, LLC (“AEI”), a private equity
investor in aerospace, power generation and specialty industrial companies, announced today
that Jon Nemo has joined the firm as a Partner.

One of the most active investment bankers in the aerospace and defense industries, Mr. Nemo
has completed more than 75 M&A and corporate finance transactions valued at more than $10
billion over the past 20 years. He has also played a leading role in several of the industry’s
highest profile, successful middle-market transactions in recent years, including the sale of
Wencor Group to Warburg Pincus, Haas Group to Wesco Aircraft, Ross Aviation to Landmark
Aviation, and Pexco Aerospace, Schneller, and Breeze-Eastern to Transdigm Group.

“Jon’s deep knowledge of the aerospace supply chain, extensive transaction experience and
breadth of industry relationships will bolster AEI’s deal-sourcing and transaction execution
capabilities, while also bringing new value creation perspectives to our existing portfolio,” said
David Rowe, Managing Partner of AEI. “We are excited to have Jon join our industry-leading
team, and welcome him to AEI.

Michael Greene, Managing Partner of AEI, said, “The addition of Jon brings our investment
team to 18 experienced industry professionals, giving AEI one of the deepest talent pools in this
specialized investment sector.”

Mr. Nemo, 42, joins AEI from Harris Williams & Co., a leader in middle-market M&A advisory,
where he was a Managing Director and Head of the Aerospace, Defense & Government Services
Group. Prior to Harris Williams, Mr. Nemo was a Managing Director in the Aerospace &
Defense Investment Banking Group at Jefferies & Company (formerly Jefferies Quarterdeck), as
well as a Managing Director in the Industrial Growth & Services Investment Banking Group at
