Outstanding shares: 79,187,836 

QUEBEC CITY, Nov. 24, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - CO2 Solutions Inc. ("CO2 Solutions" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that yesterday it held the Annual General and Special Meeting of the shareholders of the Corporation at the Pavillon La Laurentienne - Auditorium Jean-Paul Tardif, at Laval University in Québec City (the "Meeting").

Shareholders re-elected the following directors to the Corporation's Board of Directors: Evan Price, Chairman of the Board; Glenn R. Kelly, President and Chief Executive Officer; Robert Manherz, Principal, Dundurn Capital Partners Inc.; Kimberley Okell, Vice President, Legal Affairs and Assistant Corporate Secretary, Vision 7 International ULC; Martin P. Pelletier, Administrator; Jocelyn Proteau, Administrator; Alan Shaw, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer, Codexis, Inc.  PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, Chartered Accountants, was appointed as auditors of the Corporation for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2012.

"2011 was a year of strong growth and of important milestones for CO2 Solutions", commented Glenn Kelly, President and Chief Executive Officer of CO2 Solutions.  "It was, once again, a record setting year in terms of commercial and technical progress that built upon the very significant achievements of 2010. We are fortunate to have such a distinctive and experienced group of individuals serving on our Board of Directors and we are grateful for their continued support and counsel".

The Corporation is also pleased to announce that at the Meeting the shareholders adopted a special resolution to amend the articles of the Corporation to change the name of the Corporation from "CO2 Solution" to "CO2 Solutions" and that the articles of the Corporation have therefore been amended to effect such change of name.  "We believe that the use of the word 'Solutions' in our company name better reflects the larger focus on multiple solutions our company has to offer for the capture of carbon dioxide in multiple industry settings" said Mr. Kelly, "and the name change also reflects the fact that, at large, many users, providers, investors and others already use the word Solutions when using our company name".

In accordance with its stock option compensation plan approved by the Board of Directors, subject to regulatory approval, the Corporation granted yesterday a total of 872,790 stock options to its officers and directors. Each stock option allows the holder thereof to subscribe to one common share of COSolutions Inc. on or before November 23, 2016, at a price of $0.21 per share, which price corresponds to the closing price of the shares of CO2 Solutions Inc. on the last trading day preceding the grant of the stock options.
