GP Strategies Corporation Prepays $5.2 million Convertible Note

Elkridge, MD. May 28, 2008. GP Strategies Corporation (NYSE: GPX), the parent company of global performance improvement solutions provider General Physics Corporation (GP), today announced that it pre-paid an outstanding five-year note payable to ManTech International Corporation (ManTech) in the principal amount of $5,250,955 that was originally scheduled to mature in October 2008. Each year during the term of the note, ManTech had an option to convert up to 20% of the original principal amount of the note into GP Strategies common stock at the current market price, but only in the event the stock was trading at $10 per share or more. No portion of the note was converted into common stock. On May 27, 2008, GP Strategies satisfied the note obligation by paying ManTech a total of $5.2 million, which consisted of the principal balance of the note plus accrued interest through the payment date, less a mutually agreed prepayment discount of $125,000. The debt repayment was funded by GP using both cash on hand and borrowings under its revolving line of credit.
