STEVENSON, Md. -- October 24, 2013

The securities litigation firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation,
announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the Delaware
Chancery Court on behalf of all public stockholders ofEdgen Group Inc.
(“Edgen” or the “Company”) (NYSE:EDG).

According to the complaint, under the terms of the proposed transaction,
Sumitomo Corporation (“Sumitomo”) would acquire the outstanding common stock
of Edgen for $12.00 per share in cash. The complaint alleges that proposed
transaction is the product of a flawed process that resulted from a failure to
maximize stockholder value and it deprives Edgen’s public stockholders of the
ability to share in the Company’s future prospects. The complaint also alleges
that, in approving the proposed transaction, the Company’s board of directors
breached their fiduciary duties and that Sumitomo aided and abetted the
board’s breaches of their duties.
