  AMCOL International Shareholder Alert: Former SEC Attorney Willie Briscoe
  and Powers Taylor LLP Investigate Acquisition by Imerys

Business Wire

DALLAS -- February 12, 2014

Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie
Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor LLP are
investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of AMCOL
International Corporation (“AMCOL”) (NYSE: ACO) related to the acquisition by
Imerys S.A. for shareholders. Under the terms of the transaction valued at
approximately $1.6 billion, AMCOL shareholders would only receive $41.00 in
cash for each share of AMCOL stock owned, well below at least one analyst’s
estimated value of $43 per share.

or join the action, contact Willie Briscoe at The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC,

Powers at Powers Taylor LLP, toll free (877) 728-9607, via e-mail at
shareholder@powerstaylor.com. There is no cost or fee to you.

The AMCOL investigation centers on whether AMCOL’s Board of Directors is
acting in the shareholders’ best interests, whether the board is properly
considering the proposed price for the shareholders, and whether the board has
employed an adequate process to review and act on the proposed transaction.
Notably, at least one analyst with Yahoo! Finance has estimated that the true
inherent value of the company may be as high as $43.00 per share.
