PMFG, Inc. (Parent of Peerless Mfg. Co.) Announces Changes in Corporate
Governance and Executive Compensation-Related Practices

DALLAS, May 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PMFG, Inc. (the "Company")
(Nasdaq:PMFG) today announced that its Board of Directors (the "Board") has or
will implement several changes in the Company's governance and executive
compensation-related practices. The changes resulted from the Board's
evaluation of recent input from certain of the Company's stockholders, as well
as various shareholder service organizations.

Governance-Related Matters

Effective May 8, 2013, Mr. Sherrill Stone, Chairman of the Board, ceased to be
a member of the Company's Audit, Compensation, and Nominating and Corporate
Governance Committees. Mr. Stone voluntarily resigned from the standing
committees to address concerns raised by Institutional Shareholder Services,
which designated him as an "Affiliated Outside Director" due to his former
role as the Company's Chief Executive Officer.Mr. Stone will retain his role
as Chairman of the Board and will continue to serve as a member of the Board.

The Board adopted a director resignation policy, under which a Board nominee
receiving "For" votes of less than 50 percent of the votes cast in an
uncontested election will be required to tender his or her resignation to the
Board for consideration. The Board has the discretion to decline to accept
such resignation and request that the director fulfill his or her Board term.
In such event the Board would be required to disclose the reasons for such
actions.

Compensation-Related Matters

The Board, upon the recommendation of the Compensation Committee, agreed to
make certain prospective changes to its executive compensation programs and
practices intended to improve the alignment between the compensation practices
and guidelines of the Company's executive officers and the interests of the
stockholders. The changes include (i) double-trigger change of control
provisions for stock awards; (ii) holding requirements for Company stock
obtained under long-term incentive compensation plans; (iii) prohibiting
hedging transactions; (iv) discouraging pledging of Company stock; (v)
elimination of tax gross ups from all future employment agreements; and (vi)
"clawback" policy addressing the recovery of certain incentive compensation
following a restatement of the Company's financial statements.

Comment from the Company's Chairman of the Board

Mr. Stone, PMFG's Chairman of the Board said, "The actions taken by the Board
of Directors reflect the results of careful consideration of feedback and
insight obtained from the Company's stockholders and independent shareholder
service organizations. We believe these changes are in the best long-term
interest of the Company and demonstrate the Board's commitment to align the
Company's programs and policies with the interests of its stockholders."
