NEW YORK, Feb. 12, 2014

NEW YORK, Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims
on behalf of investors of AMCOL International Corporation ("AMCOL" or the
"Company") (NYSE:ACO) (ISIN: US02341W1036) (CUSIP: 02341W103) concerning the
proposed acquisition of AMCOL by Imerys S.A.

The investigation concerns whether the AMCOL directors are breaching their
fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize
shareholder value. Under the terms of the agreement, shares of AMCOL will be
converted into the right to receive $41.00 in cash for each share of AMCOL
common stock. However, the Price to Revenue and Total Assets multiples are
below the averages of comparable transactions. Additionally, at least one
analyst set a target price of $43.00 per share for AMCOL common stock.

AMCOL shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised
to contact Robert Willoughby at rswilloughby@pomlaw.com or 212-661-1100 or
888-476-6529, ext. 237.
