Offsetters Climate Solutions Inc. ("OCS" or the "Company") (TSX
VENTURE:COO)(FRANKFURT:9EA) is pleased to announce its financial results for the
financial year end December 31, 2013.

2013 Financial Highlights

--  Sales Revenue for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was
    $7,095,306, compared to sales of $3,322,345 for the same period in 2012.
--  Gross profit was $4,521,503 for the twelve months ended December 31,
    2013 compared to $1,841,133 for 2012. 
--  Operating income before finance and other items of $177,982 vs. 2012
    operating loss of $562,585. 
--  Net comprehensive loss for the Company was $3,296,606, driven by non-
    cash items including goodwill impairment of $2,844,511, accretion
    expense related to the net present value estimate of future cash flows
    of $311,055 and the revision of the estimate for provisions related to
    the acquisition of Offsetters Clean Technology Inc. and Carbon Credit
    Corp of $212,415.

Offsetters 2013 revenues reflect the consolidated sales of ERA Ecosystem
Restoration Associates, Offsetters Clean Technology and Carbon Credit Corp,
under the banner of Offsetters Climate Solutions. The Company's revenues were
derived from carbon offset sales and consulting contracts through our advisory
services group. Fourth quarter revenues were highlighted by sales of Verified
Emission Reductions (VERs) from the Mai Ndombe REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from
Deforestation and Degradation) project, retail VER sales to corporate customers,
and the provision of sustainability advisory services to clients. 

Total carbon offset sales for 2013 represent a 4% increase from the consolidated
offset sales of the companies in fiscal 2012. Approximately 93.5% of all carbon
offset revenues from 2013 continued to be generated through voluntary market
transactions despite the launch of two new North American-based legislated
carbon markets within the Province of Quebec and within the State of California.
The remaining 6.5% of offset sales were transacted under British Columbia's
Carbon Neutral Government program administered by the Pacific Carbon Trust. In
fiscal 2014, the Company expects to begin realizing new, potentially significant
revenue from compliance market offset sales as carbon projects achieve
verification and offsets are issued and sold to regulated entities. The Company
has positioned itself with a pipeline of projects that will supply demand from
each of California, Quebec, Alberta (where legislated carbon markets currently
exist) and British Columbia, should provincial government legislate a carbon
offset component under the forthcoming liquefied natural gas regulations.

Offsetters' Advisory Services revenues also continued to grow year over year,
with 2013 realizing an increase of 13% over fiscal 2012. Significant new revenue
growth was derived from two streams of advisory services - ecosystem services
work provided to both North American and South American clients, and
sustainability consulting services to a larger market consisting of
multinational corporations. The Company expects continued growth in both streams
throughout 2014 and beyond. 

"We are pleased with our first year consolidated performance, and achieving
expected sales growth in our core areas of business," commented Dr. James
Tansey, CEO of Offsetters. "We maintain our optimistic outlook for continued
revenue growth as we expand both our advisory services offerings and our carbon
market business. In addition, we anticipate 2014 delivering new lines of revenue
resulting from our development activities in regional compliance carbon
