MORRISVILLE, N.C., July 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Alliance One International,
Inc. (NYSE:AOI) ("Alliance One" or the "Company") today announced its
intention to offer, subject to market and other conditions, $790 million in
aggregate principal amount of its senior secured second lien notes due 2021
(the "Senior Notes") to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A
under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act") and to
persons in offshore transactions in reliance on Regulation S under the
Securities Act.

Alliance One intends to use a portion of the net proceeds of the offering to
fund the redemption (the "Redemption") of $635 million in aggregate principal
amount of its 10% senior notes due 2016 (the "2016 Notes") and the purchase of
any and all of $115 million in aggregate principal amount of its 5½%
convertible senior subordinated notes due 2014 (the "Convertible Notes")
pursuant to its previously announced cash tender offer (the "Tender Offer"). 
The Redemption and the Tender Offer are conditioned upon, among other things,
the successful completion of the offering.

The Company intends to apply the remaining net proceeds of the offering to pay
fees and expenses related to the offering, the Redemption, the Tender Offer
and the amendment and restatement of its existing senior secured revolving
credit facility, as well as for other general corporate purposes, which may in
the future include retiring any Convertible Notes not purchased in the Tender
Offer.

This press release is for informational purposes only and does not constitute
an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, securities or an
offer to purchase, or a solicitation of an offer to purchase, or a call for
redemption of, any securities.  Any offer of the Senior Notes will be made
only by means of a private offering memorandum.  The Tender Offer is being
made solely pursuant to an offer to purchase and the related letter of
transmittal, which set forth the complete terms of the Tender Offer.  The
Senior Notes are not being registered under the Securities Act, or the
securities laws of any other jurisdiction, and may not be offered or sold in
the United States without registration or an applicable exemption from
registration requirements.
