Myriant Technologies, Inc. Announces US$60 Million Strategic Equity Investment From PTT Chemical Group
Date:1/24/2011

d Mr. Veerasak Kositpaisal, President & Chief Executive Officer of PTT Chemical.  "These green products will meet the continuously increasing demand for environmentally friendly products, driven largely from customers' awareness; especially in the rapidly growing Asian markets.  The involvement in the succinic acid plant in Louisiana through this investment in Myriant is the strategic entry point that will not only accelerate the commercialization of bio-based products but also strengthen our competitive advantage in bio-based technology."

In late December, with Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, Myriant announced that it will soon begin construction on a 30 million pound bio-based succinic acid production plant in Lake Providence, Louisiana that will be the world's largest.  Succinic acid has been recognized as one of the most promising biochemicals that can be produced from renewable feedstocks to replace a wide range of petroleum-based chemicals.  Myriant's renewable succinic acid offers cost competitive performance, reduced price volatility and a significantly enhanced environmental footprint as compared to petroleum-based alternatives.

HSBC was the financial adviser to PTT Chemical Group for this transaction and Morgan Joseph was the adviser to Myriant Technologies for this transaction.

PTT Chemical is a fully-integrated petrochemical and chemical company, combining visionary leadership and innovation in the chemical industry. PTT Chemical aspires to develop sustainable growth based on social benefit and global environmental standards under its vision to be the "Leading chemical company for better living through innovative technology and people."
