TOR Minerals Announces Warrants Exercise









CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas, Dec. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TOR Minerals International (Nasdaq: TORM), a producer of synthetic titanium dioxide and color pigments, specialty aluminas, and other high performance mineral fillers, today announced that it has received $2,650,000 in cash proceeds from the exercise of warrants that were previously issued in connection with a private placement completed during October of 2008.  In total, warrants to purchase a total of 265,000 common shares were exercised at a strike price of $10 per share.

Included in the group of investors who have exercised warrants were four board members: David A. and Douglas M. Hartman, Bernard A. Paulson, and Thomas W. Pauken, who exercised warrants to purchase a total of 180,000 shares.

"TOR has made a remarkable improvement in financial performance during the past two years and is well positioned to continue to benefit from new product introductions, improving efficiencies, tight cost controls, as well as favorable market dynamics," said Bernard A. Paulson, Chairman of the Board of Directors of TOR Minerals.  "This warrant exercise will further strengthen the balance sheet and provide greater flexibility to address future opportunities."

Headquartered in Corpus Christi, Texas, TOR Minerals International is a global manufacturer and marketer of specialty mineral and pigment products for high performance applications with manufacturing and regional offices located in the United States, Netherlands and Malaysia.
