MORRISVILLE, N.C., Aug.16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Alliance One International,
Inc. (NYSE:AOI) ("Alliance One" or the "Company") today announced that it has
amended its previously announced cash tender offer for its 5½% Convertible
Senior Subordinated Notes due 2014 (the "Convertible Notes") to increase the
size of the tender offer (the "Tender Offer") to up to $60.0 million in
aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Convertible Notes. In addition,
Alliance One announced that it has extended the Tender Offer to midnight, New
York City time, at the end of Thursday, August 29, 2013. The Tender Offer is
being made on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the
Company's Amended Offer to Purchase dated July 30, 2013, as amended and
supplemented (the "Offer to Purchase"). The Offer to Purchase and the related
letter of transmittal more fully set forth the terms of the Tender Offer.
Information relating to the Tender Offer is listed in the table below.

                                                             $60,000,000

          Subordinated Notes due 2014
(1)       Per $1,000 principal amount of Convertible Notes excluding accrued and unpaid
          interest, which will be paid in addition to the Tender Offer Consideration.

If Convertible Notes with an aggregate principal amount in excess of $60.0
million are validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer,
then, subject to the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer, Alliance One
will accept for payment only $60.0 million aggregate principal amount of
Convertible Notes. In that event, the proration for each holder tendering
Convertible Notes will be calculated with a proration factor of such amount so
that Alliance One only accepts for purchase an aggregate principal amount of
Convertible Notes of $60.0 million (with appropriate adjustments to avoid
purchases of Convertible Notes in principal amounts other than integral
multiples of $1,000).

As of 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 15, 2013, $41,232,000 in aggregate
principal amount of Convertible Notes have been tendered and not withdrawn.
