IBC Advanced Alloys Corp. Announces Closing of $10.35 Million Offering Including a Full Exercise of the Over-Allotment Option

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 23, 2010) - IBC Advanced Alloys Corp. (TSX VENTURE:IB) ("IBC" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced short-form prospectus offering, raising gross proceeds of C$10,350,000 for the Company. Union Securities Ltd. and Pope & Company Limited (collectively, the "Agents") acted as Agents for the Company with respect to the sale of 60,882,354 units ("Units") of IBC at a price of C$0.17 per Unit (the "Unit Offering"). In connection with the Unit Offering, the Company granted the Agents an over-allotment option to require IBC to issue up to an additional 15% of the Units actually sold at the closing of the Unit Offering, which the Agents exercised in order to increase the number of Units sold from 52,941,177 to 60,882,354.

Each Unit is priced at C$0.17 and consists of one common share of IBC (a "Unit Share") and one-half of one common share purchase warrant exercisable at C$0.25 (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Unit Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share of IBC for a price of C$0.25 per common shares until 4:00 pm (Pacific Standard Time) on March 23, 2012 subject to acceleration of the exercise period in certain circumstances. If following the closing of the Unit Offering, the Company's closing price is C$0.50 or more per common share for 20 consecutive trading days on the TSX Venture Exchange, or an equivalent stock exchange (the "Accelerating Event"), the exercise period of the Unit Warrants may be reduced to expire on the date that is 30 days following the Accelerating Event.

The Agents were paid a cash commission of C$724,500.00 in connection with the Unit Offering and received an aggregate of 4,261,764 broker warrants to acquire up to 4,261,764 common shares at a price of C$0.17 per common share until March 23, 2012.
