MIAMI -- October 10, 2013

World Fuel Services Corporation (NYSE: INT), a leading global fuel logistics
company, principally engaged in the marketing, sale and distribution of
aviation, marine and land fuel products and related services, announced today
that it has successfully expanded its existing revolving credit facility. The
amended facility increases the maximum availability under the facility from
$800 million to $1.1 billion and extends the facility maturity date by more
than two years to October 2018. The facility contains an accordion feature
whereby it can be expanded to $1.25 billion under certain conditions. The
Company also extended the maturity of its existing $243 million term loan to
October 2018.

Borrowings under the credit facility and the term loan will continue to bear
interest at a tiered structure based on certain financial covenants, which is
at a current rate of LIBOR plus 2.0% per annum. The amended revolving credit
facility may be used for borrowings for working capital needs and general
corporate purposes as well as the issuance of standby and documentary letters
of credit.

“We are very pleased to complete the amendment to our credit facility, which
was significantly oversubscribed. The amended facility, which includes more
favorable terms, will further enhance our capital structure and liquidity
profile, providing even greater flexibility to execute on our strategic growth
initiatives,” said Ira M. Birns, executive vice president and chief financial
officer of World Fuel Services Corporation.

“We are appreciative of the continued support demonstrated by our existing
global bank group as well as several new lenders. The success of this
transaction reflects our banks’ continued confidence in our dynamic business
model,” said Adrienne B. Urban, vice president and treasurer of World Fuel
Services Corporation.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Wells Fargo Securities, LLC and HSBC Bank USA,
National Association served as joint lead arrangers in connection with the
transaction. RBS Citizens, N.A., TD Bank, N.A. and Citibank, N.A. served as
co-documentation agents.
