Organic Resource Management Inc.: Update on Strategic Alternatives Review

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 4, 2012) - Organic Resource Management Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ORI) ("ORMI" or "the Company"), is providing an update to its previously announced strategic alternatives review in order to provide clarity because of the significant amount of time that has elapsed in the process.

As previously announced, in December 2010, the Company's Board of Directors formed a Special Committee of its independent Directors to examine and explore matters relating to a number of expressions of interest received from third parties to acquire the Company. In January 2011, the Special Committee retained Duff & Phelps Corporation (NYSE:DUF) as financial advisor to evaluate and assist in the exploration of strategic alternatives available to maximize shareholder value.

The strategic alternatives process was hindered by the risk associated with the previously announced motor vehicle accident claim that significantly exceeded the limits of the Company's insurance coverage. As announced on March 21, 2012, the aforementioned claim settled within the limits of the Company's insurance coverage subject to court approval. As a result, the Company and its advisors have recommenced discussions with a number of interested parties, and are now diligently working to conclude the strategic alternatives review as expeditiously as is appropriate.

The Board of Directors cautions the Company's shareholders and others considering trading in its securities that no decisions have been made by the Board of Directors or the Special Committee with respect to selling the shares or assets of the Company. There can be no assurance that any definitive offer will be received or accepted, that any agreement will be executed, or that any transaction will be consummated.
