Westway Group, Inc. Commences Tender Offer For Publicly Traded Warrants

NEW ORLEANS, Aug. 9, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Westway Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:WWAY) ("Westway") today announced that it has commenced a tender offer to purchase up to 45,999,900 of its publicly traded warrants (Nasdaq:WWAYW), which entitle the holder to purchase shares of its common stock. The offer to purchase the warrants is at a price of $0.13 per warrant.

The tender offer commenced today and will expire, unless extended, at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on Friday, September 3, 2010. Tenders of warrants must be made on or prior to the expiration of the tender offer and may be withdrawn at any time on or prior to the expiration of the tender offer.

Westway will purchase all warrants properly tendered and not properly withdrawn in the tender offer, as specified in the Offer to Purchase document relating to the tender offer that was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") and distributed to warrant holders. Westway anticipates that the purchase will be financed from its available cash reserves and/or available borrowings under its revolving credit facility.

As of August 9, 2010, there are 52,614,186 warrants outstanding (including 1,400,000 warrants included in units which representatives of underwriters in Westway's initial public offering have an option to purchase (the "Underwriter Warrants") and 5,214,286 warrants issued to Westway's founders in a private placement in connection with Westway's initial public offering (the "Founder Warrants"), both of which are not subject to the tender offer). The tender offer is subject to certain conditions as described in the Offer to Purchase document, including there being validly tendered and not withdrawn before the expiration of the tender offer a number of warrants representing at least 80% of the total number of warrants outstanding (excluding the Underwriter Warrants or the Founder Warrants). Westway currently intends that this will be its only tender offer to purchase its warrants prior to their expiration on May 24, 2011.
