Camposol Holding Limited: Camposol Holding Plc reports First Quarter 2014 Results

Camposol Holding Plc. reported sales of USD 60.5 million in the first quarter
of 2014, up 49.0% from Q113 mainly due to an increase in volume sold of
frozen mangoes and grapes, as well as increasing prices of preserved white
asparagus, fresh mangoes and shrimps.

During the fourth quarter of 2013, EBITDA was USD 7.4 million, 83.9% higher
than Q113, explained by higher volumes of frozen mangoes, as well as
increasing prices of preserved white asparagus, fresh mangoes and shrimps.
EBITDA margin for Q114 increased to 12.2%.

Volume sold during Q114 was 24,359 net MT, up 34.3% from Q113 explained mainly
by an increase in volumes of frozen mangoes and grapes.

Average price was USD 2.48 per net KG, up 10.7% from the same period in 2013
mainly explained by an increase in prices of preserved white asparagus, fresh
mangoes and shrimps.

As of March 31st 2014, the Company maintained a cash balance of USD 25.0
million.

The long term growth prospects for exotic fruits and vegetables markets are
excellent. Avocadoes and mango are growing, with headroom for increased per
capita consumption in key markets. In the case of asparagus, although
consumption is stable, supply is falling due mainly to reduced exports from
China. The Company expects good demand for all fresh produce in general and
for avocadoes specifically in both the United States and Europe.

On April 16th2014 Camposol S.A. announced that it had received the requisite
consents from the holders of a majority in principal outstanding amount of
its 9.875% senior Notes due 2017 pursuant to the Camposol S.A.'s previously
announced consent solicitation (the "Consent Solicitation") dated April 8,
2014.

Camposol S.A. successfully reopened its 9.875% USD 125 million senior Notes
due 2017 raising gross proceeds of USD 75 million. The net proceeds from the
bond issue will be used for capital expenditures, mainly for the expansion of
the blueberries' and shrimps' businesses. The Notes were issued as
additional notes of, and will form a single issue with, the USD 125 million
9.875% Notes due 2017 issued on February 2nd2012. The total aggregate
principal amount of the 9.875% notes due 2017 outstanding following this
reopening is USD 200 million.
