Zug/Switzerland, 17 June 2008 - FORTUNE Management Inc. (General Standard, ISIN USU026281027; SIN: A0BLYY) announces that it has signed a non-binding Term Sheet with Bondholders and Loan Noteholders representing the majority of its Partial Bonds and Loan Notes that sets out key terms of a proposed restructuring of the Fortune Management Group ("FMI"). Under the proposed terms, the Bonds and the Loan Notes with a face value of EUR 103 m will be exchanged by the Bondholders and Noteholders for a beneficial interest in a restructuring trust under the governance of representatives of the Bondholders and Noteholders.

Under the proposed terms, the biodiesel group GATE will be transferred out of FMI completely and will be restructured under the leadership of Alvarez & Marsal, a leading global restructuring and turnaround management firm. The majority of GATE´s equity will be held by the restructuring trust. The trust will further hold 100% of FMI´s wealth management operations and a EUR 45 m bond as well as EUR 5 m face value preferred shares. In addition the trust will receive 40 m of common shares of FMI. All proceeds flowing into the trust will be paid to the Bondholders and the Noteholders in a pre-agreed distribution ratio. Any Bondholder or Noteholder that holds warrants originally issued in conjunction with the Bonds or the Notes will receive the underlying number of shares of common stock.

The new debt will have a term of 10 years and will accrue interest until cash flow from operations is sufficient to pay interest in cash. As a result of the restructuring of FMI, representatives of the Bondholders and Noteholders will join the Board of Directors of the company and form a new Executive Committee. Key management has agreed to be paid 50% of their salaries in shares for the remainder of 2008.

The actual implementation of this complex restructuring is highly dependent on numerous conditions to be fulfilled in a limited timeframe, such as the execution of a legally binding Restructuring Agreement and numerous additional material agreements, and as such, there can be no certainty that these conditions can be met.
