Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses in Excess of
$100,000 Investing in KiOR, Inc. to Contact the Firm -- KIOR

NEW YORK, Oct. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading
national securities law firm, reminds investors in KiOR, Inc. ("KiOR" or the
"Company") (Nasdaq:KIOR) of the October 21, 2013 deadline to seek the role of
lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the
Company and certain executives.

A complaint has been filed on behalf of all persons who purchased or otherwise
acquired KiOR securities between August 14, 2012 and August 7, 2013 (the
"Class Period").

The complaint alleges that the Company and its executives violated federal
securities laws with respect to its disclosures concerning business,
operational, and compliance policies.

Specifically, the action alleges that throughout the Class Period the Company
made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i)
KiOR was not on track to produce commercially meaningful quantities of biofuel
and (ii) KiOR had inadequate internal controls over production level
calculations and forecasting at its Columbus, Mississippi facility.

On August 8, 2013, KiOR announced that it shipped over 75,000 gallons of
cellulosic fuel from the Columbus facility, contrasting with its May 2013
estimation of 300,000 to 500,000 gallons. Following this news, the Company's
stock declined from a close of $4.72 per share on August 7, 2013 to a close of
$3.67 on August 12, 2013.
