AltaTerra Advisors Announces Official Launch

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - February 24, 2010) -   AltaTerra Advisors Inc. ("AltaTerra" or the "Firm") is pleased to announce it is officially open for business offering business advisory services exclusively to cleantech companies.

AltaTerra's Managing Director, Mr. Louis Julien Fruchier, stated, "The cleantech sector offers tremendous opportunity with substantial growth potential over the long-term horizon. However, cleantech companies face significant challenges getting to market. Research and development can be slow and expensive and the capital and regulatory requirements to produce and market scalable technology is often onerous. Our aim is to help early-stage cleantech ventures raise capital, commercialize their technologies and establish a strong platform for growth as efficiently and effectively as possible."

AltaTerra's suite of services includes business advisory on strategy, finance and marketing, interim leadership for situations such as spin-offs and turnarounds, and performance coaching for entrepreneurs facing rapid growth. Mr. Fruchier further stated, "Unlike typical generalist consultants, we are entrepreneurs passionate about cleantech focused on helping cleantech entrepreneurs. We have launched startups, participated in developing early-stage ventures and have been partners in growing private and public junior enterprises. Having successfully managed the types of challenges entrepreneurs often face, we believe our experience can be extremely valuable in helping our clients achieve their undertakings successfully."

AltaTerra is already assisting two cleantech client companies. The Firm is helping MSI -- a US-based technology company -- assess opportunities in renewable energy markets. MSI's President and CEO, Mr. Michael A., stated, "Mr. Fruchier's knowledge of cleantech markets combined with his deep experience as an entrepreneur have brought immediate resources to the company in a timely and practical manner. We will continue to leverage AltaTerra's focused approach and dedication to quality to bring value as we commercialize our technology." AltaTerra is also helping OTL -- a UK-based technology company -- penetrate North American markets. OTL's President, Mr. David E., stated, "Having been introduced to Mr. Fruchier last year, my company and his have now gone on to establish a strong link based upon the performance of AltaTerra to meet our needs. It is our intention to develop further our relationship with AltaTerra to cover the commercialization and adaptation of our European products to the American and Canadian markets."
